Ajebo Hustlers Are On The Front-lines Of Justice On ‘Barawo’

Posted on

The dynamic duo, Ajebo Hustlers reorienting the world’s perspective on Afro-Pop with an urban twist, turn to their trusty combination of galvanic drums, synthesized keys and piercing words for their just-released expository on the chaotic state of Nigeria in respect to mob justice, extrajudicial murders, corruption and the unavoidable tragedy these vices create aptly titled Barawo, Hausa for a thief.

Uniting the various influences that make up your typical Afropop record like heavy drums punctuating a mix of colorful percussions produced by 1da Banton, with the inclusion of stark honesty, the eclectic group waxes poetically about these issues, ensuring an easy saturation of in a society that glosses over matters like these when the next big thing arrives.

Barawo is accompanied by a menacing video directed by Onari that mirrors their grimy narrative. The single also serves as a predecessor to the duo’s soon-to-be-released EP.
