Fast-rising Nigerian pop artist and producer IDAHAMS is riding high on the success of his ‘Wetin No Good’ remix and video, which has lifted the original single to over six million global streams, alongside rave reviews from the likes of BBC 1Xtra, Clash Magazine, Music Week, and Rinse FM. However, the afropop sensation is not resting on his laurels just yet as he’s ready to go again with an infectious new single titled ‘GOD BLESS AFRICA’, as featured in Music & Fashion Blog, arriving on August 31 via Grafton Records.
Written by Idahams and produced by Kulboy (Stefflon Don, Tekno, Kelvyn Boy), ‘God Bless Africa’ is a celebration of African women all around the world. As Idahams put it, “This song was inspired by the popular Instagram personality Tunde Ednut, who regularly posts videos and photos of beautiful African women from around the world, often using the caption ‘God Bless Africa’ to celebrate their beauty”. Sonically, the smooth mid-tempo offering is led by glorious percussion and keyboard arrangements, and held together by Idahams’ mesmerizing vocals and lush melodies.
A native of Nigeria’s picturesque Bonny Island, Idahams is carving a vibrant path as a rising star in today’s global music landscape, with two acclaimed projects in the last two years, over 70 million streams, and four top 10 singles on Music Week’s UK Black Music Chart, among other accomplishments. Drawing deeply from the rich culture of his hometown, Idahams crafts his afropop music with percussion-rich rhythms and highlife sensibilities. As he continues to build on recent successes, Idahams is quickly becoming a burgeoning force in afropop’s international surge.
