Multi-platinum selling producer duo, Da Beatfreakz present an all-star cast of Sneakbo, Afro B, Moelogo and Sona for their visuals to their debut single ‘Quavo’.
The brothers, O1 and U1, known for their work with Kat Deluna & Jerimih on ‘What A Night’, Giggs on ‘Rap Gustavo’ and currently working with Usher, Elie Goulding, Jaquees and Sean Paul, let off the motivationally charged Afro/bashment assisted single as they begin their own journey in to the limelight.
Having established their roots as bedroom producers in the heart of South London a number of years ago, their music has since taken over all corners of the globe, seeing them relocate on numerous occasions to nurture their craft and paying dividends as their productions spiraled in to platinum selling figures and accumulating over three hundred million Youtube views. Their experimental taste and genre-bending style lay at the core of their music where they cleverly entwine an array of genres such as Afrobeats, Dancehall and R&B. Citing the blend as ‘the future of music’, their ear and appreciation of the genres are evident in their output and the quality of artists that they work closely with.
With the current musical climate that we are in “its amazing to see how African music is widely spreading into mainstream audiences. For us it’s an exciting time to be making music, to be part of history in the making within the African diaspora.” says Da Beatfreakz.
“The intro to ‘Quavo’ starts of with Divine Oduduru, a Nigerian athlete who went viral his statement “We African people we are born great” –this resonated with us and felt it was the right way to start off our forth coming project”
Premiered by BBC 1Xtra’s DJ Target, the record is dubbed as “the new wave” by the producers themselves; ‘Quavo’ a reference to Migo’s is a true depiction of how widely Hip-Hop culture is personified by one movement.

Adekunle Gold begins a new journey post-YBNL as he serves up the visuals to his collaboration with British-Nigerian singer – Moelogo.
In the visuals Adekunle Gold can be seen jaunting through the city of London, UK with his love interest. The video was directed by Moe Musa.
Undeniably one of the hottest and most exciting talents of recent years, British-Nigerian singer-songwriter Moeologo has shown why he is the name destined to be on everyone’s lips with the release of his new singles, the soulfully melodic and thought-provoking ‘Shine Your Light’ and the infectious, summer-ready Afro fusion sounds of ‘Sometimes I Pray’, featuring UK artist Tiggs Da Author. With the tracks garnering rave reviews from the likes of Hunger, The Line of Best Fit and FACT, Moelogo now takes things to the next level with the debut of the video for ‘Shine Your Light’, bringing the track to life with its touching and heartfelt visuals.
Adekunle Gold and MoeLogo are two of the most unique modern day Afro-Fusion acts. Their 2016 projects – “Gold” and “Ireti” – are timeless records that give us a peak into what the future holds for Nigerian music. The 2 super-talents crossed paths late last year with the release of the P2J-produced song “Rora Se (Thread Softly)”. That magic comes to the forefront yet again on their new duet titled “Only Girl“, but this time with a different producer, Lekaa Beats.
Undeniably one of the hottest and most exciting talents of recent years, British-Nigerian singer-songwriter Moeologo continues to show why he is the name destined to be on everyone’s lips with the release of his brand new singles, the soulfully melodic and thought-provoking ‘Shine Your Light’ – which premiered on Hunger yesterday – and the infectious, summer-ready Afro fusion sounds of ‘Sometimes I Pray’, featuring UK artist Tiggs Da Author. The singles are available to stream on Soundcloud now and are out tomorrow.
Set to feature on his just-announced, forthcoming third EP ‘Shine Your Light’, the tracks – written by Moelogo with production from Jay Weathers on the EP’s title track and P2J on ‘Sometimes I Pray’ – demonstrate Moelogo’s flair for crafting captivating and uplifting material, with compelling storytelling and textured themes and concepts. The new music follows his second EP ‘Ìréti’, which The FADER described as ‘an Afropop dream’ and spawned popular tracks such as ‘Some Say’ and ‘My City’, 2014’s underground hit ‘The Baddest’ featuring Giggs and the game-changing ‘Pénkéle’.
On his new singles, Moelogo said:
“’Shine Your Light’ and ’Sometimes I Pray’ are a way of me talking to the younger generations and telling them to be yourself, regardless of outside pressures. Do what you love and what comes from your heart. Don’t do what the majority wants you to do. Even if one person appreciates what you do that’s a blessing as working to carve your own path isn’t an easy thing to do. From ‘Ìréti’ to this new EP I want to show that whatever you’re going through, there is someone out there who will listen. One of the main reasons I make music is to let my pain out and be true to myself rather than trying to fit into what everyone else is doing. I want people to be able to learn through my story. I’m open and this is 100% me.”
Since bursting onto the scene with his breakthrough single ‘Pangolo’, Moelogo has been making serious moves. Releasing his debut EP ‘Moe Is My Name, Music Is My Logo’ in 2013 – which introduced the world to his unique sound which draws on his love for artists ranging from Afrobeat legends such as Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade to the likes of soul icon Curtis Mayfield and modern R&B and dancehall – he has gone on to collaborate with artists such as Davido, Sneakbo, Wretch 32, Avelino, Mr Eazi, Maleek Berry, Sarkodie and Mostacks. He has recently been working on new material in the studio with Ghetts, Da Beat Freaks and Juls.
Moelogo brings his passion for authentic music to his mesmerising live offering which has seen him perform memorable sets for Boiler Room, Redbull and at last year’s pre MOBO Awards party, where he was nominated for ‘Best African Act’ for the second consecutive year. Earlier this month he took his must-see stage performance to this year’s SXSW music festival.
Already garnering overwhelming support from outlets such as Complex, The FADER, SBTV, BBC 1Xtra, Beat FM, Capital Xtra, Bang Radio and some of Africa’s leading online publications, Moelogo is set to truly make his mark on the international music scene. And this is just the start!
UK based DJ Sawa dishes out the remix to his buzz single – “Tomorrow”. He retains Mr Eazi on the hook and enlists additional verses from Ghanaian superstar – Stonebwoy and budding singer Moelogo.
