In the space of the six months, Don Jazzy has successfully pushed out a crop of burgeoning artists who are gaining popularity. Heavily reminiscent of the work he did with the likes of Wande Coal and D’Banj, his new school, immersed in talent and passion are gearing for the take over. As with Rema, the 18-year old whose chart-topping single, Dumebi is everyone’s favourite thing about Afro Pop, Crayon has stepped out and is seeking to expand his base.
Following his debut on their joint track and his collaboration with Ladipoe on Based On Kpa, the young artist draws us into his world this week with a 6-track EP titled Cray Cray that speaks to his readiness for fame, lyrical and vocal strength and an understanding of the Nigerian music market.
Armed with Mavin’s resident Producers, Baby Fresh and Ozedikus’s intoxicating instrumentals and catchy lyrics which Nigerians have already started echoing, Crayon leaves no stone unturned as he touches on different relatable subjects ranging from love to hustling, his come-up and Lagos living.
Personal favourite, So Fine comes with a crisp heartwarming Clarence Peters directed video that stresses Crayon’s understanding of his work and just how far he’s willing to go to get it done and get it to resonate with people.
