Shay E (Osinaike Oluseyi) and Em. A (Adebayo Muyiwa) are both Nigerian hip hop artistes based in Lagos, while Kannon (Ademola Adegbite) is a record producer. Shay E, Em. A, and Kannon are all students of the University of Lagos. The three creatives came together to make this song titled “Underground” as a thank you to everyone who has been supporting their music since the beginning of their solo careers.
The gifted lyricist Shay E who released his debut single “I’m Blessed” in 2013 is an artist who is beginning to gain not only local but also international recognition via music blogs such as Atlanta based Trackstarz and Chicago based NewH20 for his unique sound and vivid story-telling abilities.
The talented rapper Em. A was one of the finalists in the Nokia “Don’t break da beat” competition back in 2013. He released his debut single titled “Mandate” earlier this year, which received generally positive reviews.
Record producer/ rapper Kannon was among the first set of students selected to be a part of the Sarz academy and he is currently a protege of Sarz.
The record “Underground” is a breath of fresh air from the regular afro hip hop songs and i’m sure you’ll find out why as soon you give it a listen.
