Rising rapper and songwriter Dreamboi has released audio and visuals for his latest single titled Move, following the recent release of two other hot singles Floating and Expensive, both of which made waves in the South African Hip Hop scene.
Move also comes shortly after Dreamboi’s Puff Puff Pass which featured South African artists Da Les and Gemini Major, putting the versatility of the Nigerian Artiste and his flair for creative collaboration on display. This time, Dreamboi linked up with EMtee, popularly known for multiple hit songs, including his 2015 award-winning record, Roll Up featuring Wizkid and AKA, and his fourth studio album ‘Logan’, which won a nomination for Album of the Year at the 2021 South African Hip Hop Awards. Emtee adds his own signature appeal to the fresh new record with thrilling visuals to sweeten the deal.
Speaking on the song and the collaboration with Emtee, the South African-based Nigerian artist says, “this song is a product of collaborative effort, and it took a lot of moves to get to this point. The song is about drive, motivation, and a reminder to be productive every day. The recording was pretty fast, and we finished before curfew. We shot the video a few weeks after and waited for the right time to drop.”
Hailing from Akwa Ibom in Nigeria, Dreamboi is no stranger to the African music scene, after making his debut in 2018 with Benz or Nothing featuring Dremo and went on to drop exciting releases such as Lion, Deep, Love Story ft. Gemini Major, among others. A peek into his discography highlights his resilience and continuous dedication to making music through his commendable storytelling skills.
This new collaboration breathes African unity as the African Music scene has seen increasingly rampant fusion and genre-bending releases in recent years. Nigerian musicians successfully adopted the South African-originated Amapiano sound into core Afrobeats and fused it into genres like Fuji and Pop.
Move brings Dreamboi into focus and establishes him as a talented artist, rapidly carving a niche for himself in the African Music scene with his records.
