VIDEO: IYKZ – Kilo

Featured Image

North London rapper IYKZ returns with the visuals for bass-heavy anthem “Kilo”, directed by Ashleigh Jadee (Big Sean, Skepta, Iggy Azalea), whilst the track features a trap-infused production from BZGD and mixing from Superdertie (A$AP RockyMac MillerLily Allen).

Filmed on Hackney’s Kings Crescent Estate, the area IYKZ was raised in, the visuals are a tribute to the rapper’s humble beginnings and feature several locations that will be familiar to fellow north Londoners, such as renowned barbershop and celeb hotspot D&L’s. “‘Kilo’ takes me back to the hackney streets I grew up in”, IYKZ explains. “It’s the ultimate underdog anthem. Against all odds I’ve made something of myself with the aim to go back and show everyone what I’ve become, hence shooting the video on my old block. I do this for them.”

“Kilo” follows “They Know (Wan Mo)”, a collaboration with singer Maleek Berry that has garnered over 200,000 streams on Spotify since its release in March, and is one of several singles IYKZ will be releasing over the coming months.

’76’ And ‘The Wedding Party’ Win The Public Choice Award For The 2017 Edition Of The Nollywoodweek Film Festival

Featured Image

The NollywoodWeek Film Festival (www.NollywoodWeek.com) has announced today that The Wedding Party and 76 have jointly received the 2017 NollywoodWeek Public Choice Award.

The festival trophy was given to Izu Ojukwu, the Director of 76 and Moses Babatope who represented the film in the absence of the film Director, Kemi Adetiba in a closing ceremony that was followed by the World Premiere screening of Ctach[dot]er by the Director Walter Taylaur.

“I was not expecting this award. It’s an honour for me and for everybody who worked on the film,” said Izu Ojukwu.

In his acceptance speech, Moses Babatope expressed his joy at winning this award and mentioned that it was a good omen as the production of The Wedding Party 2 had just begun in Lagos and Dubai.

The high quality of the selected films for this 5th edition has been praised by journalists and film critics. Eleven films in total were shown during the four days of the festival, including five films in competition: Dinner, Gidi Blues, Green White Green, The Wedding Party and 76.

Nadira Shakur, the Director of Communication and co-founder of the festival said that “The festival has really cemented its place in the Parisian cultural calendar. Each year we try to offer the very best of Nollywood to the Parisian public by bringing the newest developments in the industry. This year we screened a web-series from REDTV and for the first time, an animated short film from Anthill Studios called Play-Thing.”

The selection of the 2017 edition of NollywoodWeek was rich and eclectic. The Public Choice Award ultimately went to two very different films but both have left an indelible mark on the Nigerian cinema landscape over the past year.

Africa’s #1 Music Service, Boomplay Rolls Out Its Pre-Order Feature!

Featured Image

​Boomplay Music, Africa’s fastest growing music streaming and download service, has introduced its pre-order feature to content providers, giving its users the opportunity to reserve personal copies of music from their favourite artistes before the music is released.

This is the first time in Africa, a music service will launch the pre-order feature, one that allows content providers to smile to the bank, as Boomplay Music launches yet another way to curb music piracy.

The pre-order feature is available on the latest version v3.1.1 launched on May 2. Users who are using an old version will need to upgrade their app to the latest version either via in-app upgrade or Google Play Store to start enjoying this feature.

With this new development, music lovers can now order for content by their favourite artistes by making payments before it is released, using the various payment options available on Boomplay Music app such as Airtime, Paga, PesaPal etc. Once payment is complete, the users will be notified on the release date.

Offering the pre-order feature puts Boomplay Music in a category of similar music services like iTunes, with the payment aspect positioning Boomplay at an obvious advantage since users can easily make payment using their mobile airtime.

Based on feedback accumulated from beta testers, Boomplay claims the pre-order feature will enable its users to stay ahead when it comes to music releases, thereby making them pacesetters in the industry, since they will always be the first to get, discover and consume new music as it drops.

Joe He, Director of Boomplay Music, stated that the pre-order feature was launched as a result of the many requests from content providers, who wanted to identify their true fans and get the opportunity to connect with them using data obtained through the pre-order sales.

He said: Real fans buy music and will not only look forward to new releases but will also be willing to purchase them prior to time. We think this easy-to-use feature will meet our users’ needs for convenience and being up-to-date. More importantly, the pre-order feedback could also help the artists and labels make or adjust their business plans accordingly and early enough.

Back in January 2017, when Boomplay announced a major milestone of reaching over 1 million installations on Google Play Store, Boomplay’s General Manager for Operations, Oye Akideinde mentioned that the service was ‘actively working’ on some features that will make artistes and music lovers more satisfied with the platform.

Boomplay has rolled out this feature with the release of Seyi Shay’s coming single ‘Weekend Vibes’, which is now available for pre-order here, and will be released to the public on the 12th of May, 2017.
