As with other artists who discovered varying sides to themselves during the lockdown, due to the pandemic last year, KDDO, decorated producer and Afrobeats genius formerly known as Kiddominant, realized that the need to cherish moments and create good memories every chance we get is imperative. This discovery served as the basis for the creation of his debut EP, Too Late Too Lit, a longtime coming and a grand introduction to KDDO, the singer. According to him, the EP was created “to be a feel-good body of work for the fans.”
Too Late Too Lit is an eight-track project that spotlights Africa’s basking sound templates with features from the finest acts inside-out. The road to the EP began with the premiere of eWallet, a stellar Amapiano production with millions of streams and thousands of spins. The commercial success of eWallet set the tone right for a sequel release, Beamer Body, which was a collaborative effort with longtime partner, Davido on a record that affirms body positivity.
Amidst the impressive reception, KDDO moves to unveil the full-length statement to Africa which is a culmination of Afrobeats, Amapiano, pop, R&B and contemporary high life genres ingeniously curated into his vision of spreading happiness through songs. To bring this statement to life, he amassed a wealth of talent from all works of life including South Africa’s Cassper Nyovest and Sho Madjozi, Queen’s native, Bas, and self-dubbed Habesha Princess, Eritrean, Ferow; giving credence to his Nigerian brothers, Mayorkun and The Cavemen to open and close an inglorious show.
Noteworthy too, is KDDO’s appreciable vocal effort on the EP as he settles into his artist element. Having written and produced some of the biggest music hits in Afrobeats history, he is now confidently honing his singing prowess and at the same time offering a variety with super talents featured on Too Late Too Lit.
