Afro-Highlife Artiste, SPL Daddy Releases ‘Trumpet’

Posted on

After sharing Tele Mi earlier this year, Joe Samson who goes by the moniker ‘SPL daddy’ has released another track Trumpet.

This tune is a great combination of Afrobeat and highlife elements. The song features unique vocals and lyrics, and a catchy beat. SPL is a unique talent with a good understanding of the game and a background in Afro-Highlife. And as 2023 beckons, he prepares to follow up with an EP, to widen his growing audience which are people who hold the genres of Afrobeats and Highlife sacred.

Being of both Nigerian, and Ghanaian descent, Joe Samson, carries a shared heritage of Afrobeats excellence. Both countries are juggernauts on the ever-growing Afrobeats scene, and as such, it wouldn’t be lost on SPL what the genre means to the world of music. Citing the legendary Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe, one of SPL greatest influences, SPL has sought to blend his love for modern music with the gems of old school music. The result is a noteworthy new age musical brand. SPL has multiple motivations behind his foray into music. He lists the musical influences of the church and an inevitable passion for music, but most notably, states that self-expression through music keep him on the straight and narrow.

“I started music because it was a way of getting off the street and also expressing myself as a person and also wanted to share my side of life and what I I’ve been through in general.”
