Following the success of his breakout debut single ‘Show Me’, which has amassed over half a million plays online, and after teasing this new offering on TikTok and surpassing over five million views on the platform, Birmingham-based Nigerian afropop sensation DKIZZ is excited to unveil his highly anticipated new track titled ‘MY LADY’. Serving as the lead single for his forthcoming debut EP Sabi Boy, which arrives in the summer via Be83 Music, ‘My Lady’ comes accompanied by a captivating new music video that brings the excellent amapiano-tinged offering further to life. He sat down with GUAP Magazine for an interview about the new single.
Written and composed by Dkizz, with production from Godfather Beats and Rufus Production, ‘My Lady’ is an exciting dance floor filler driven by lush drum arrangements and organic piano chords that highlight the song’s amapiano and afrobeats sensibilities. Underpinning the whole thing is Dkizz, with his smooth vocal delivery, and infectious melodies, as he waxes lyrical about his leading lady. The accompanying music video is a glorious visual affair that doesn’t just bring ‘My Lady’ further to life, but it also reveals more of Dkizz and his contagious personality and irresistible star power.
Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘My Lady’, Dkizz says, “I wrote ‘My Lady’ last summer, after I had just come out of a ‘situationship’ with someone that was pretending to be the best person I could have ever met. It was a hell of a ride, and we didn’t quite work out, but it showed me what I really want in a relationship, and that’s what birthed ‘My Lady’. Godfather Beats and I went back and forth trying to find the proper sounds to bring out the emotions I was feeling at the time, as I wanted to write a soulful song that could be also played in the club. I’m just so happy that people are dancing to the song all over TikTok, even though it was inspired by one of my worst relationship experiences”.
Hailing from Port Harcourt, and now shuttling between Birmingham and London, Dkizz is following in the footsteps of legendary Port Harcourt artists like Burna Boy, Mr Eazi, and Omah Lay that have been instrumental in taking afrobeats across the globe in the past few years, as he brings his own unique afropop fusion sound to the forefront of global music this year. Making waves with his undeniable voice, captivating musicianship, expressive lyricism, and penchant for making hit songs, Dkizz is quickly setting himself apart as one to watch in 2023, beginning with future hit single ‘My Lady’.
