Flipping the 1993 Salt-N-Pepa classic ‘Shoop’ into his next afrobeats smash, ‘SHU-PERU’, as featured in Metal Magazine, is the infectious new single from award-winning Nigerian singer, songwriter, and musician KIZZ DANIEL, as he gears up for the release of his highly anticipated fourth studio album, his much-hyped performance at Essence Festival this July, and an upcoming international tour in the summer. The exciting new track also comes with a captivating music video directed by TG Omori (Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy DML), who also directed the video for Kizz Daniel’s viral hit single ‘Buga’ that reached #1 on the Global Shazam Charts, and has amassed over 150 million views on YouTube.
Already coming off of a very eventful 2022 that saw the global music sensation achieve huge milestones of being crowned the most streamed artist in Africa for the first two quarters of the year, releasing the biggest afrobeats song of the summer with ‘Buga’, and performing at the 2022 World Cup opening ceremony in Qatar with Diplo and Calvin Harris, 2023 is already promising to be an even bigger year for Kizz Daniel, with his new single ‘Shu-Peru’, produced by Reward Beatz, and engineered by Grammy Award winner Jaycen Joshua (Megan Thee Stallion, Ari Lennox), offering just a glimpse of what listeners can expect from his anticipated upcoming album.
With over a billion streams under his belt, two Shazam chart-topping singles, sold-out tours across Africa, North America, and Europe, and over 25 million social media fans, Kizz Daniel is one of the leading figures at the forefront of representing afrobeats on the world stage. The enigmatic musician is the epitome of an all-round entertainer with a magnetic tone, captivating lyrics, alluring stage and screen presence, and an undeniably infectious musicality, which are just some of the irrefutable characteristics of all his songs, cutting across afrobeats, pop and R&B music, from chart-topper ‘Buga’ to fan-favourite ‘Cough (Odo)’ to new hit ‘Shu-Peru’, and everything in between.
