Nikki Laoye makes a great comeback with her brand new single "No Be Beans" featuring fast rising Yoruba RapBoy, Base One, who created quite a buzz with his lyrical prowess during Don Jazzy's Enigma saga. Produced by her younger brother, Xblaze (who also produced “Taka Sufe”), the hip-hop laced track expresses her acknowledgement of God’s grace despite the dark times she’s been through.
The song is being released a few months after the loss of Nikki’s father and in her own words, "It's been a real tough year. Losing my Dad 3 months ago was the most heartbreaking moment of my life. No be Beans at all oh but God has been there for me and my family like never before. Base One is a fantastic artiste and he helped me put my words on paper. Now I got a new song on my lips and hey, I'll be getting married soon too. This year is definitely gonna end well.
“No Be Beans”- co-written by Base One, is highly marked by its catchy lyrics, chorus and remarkable beat production. Everyone will definitely keep their fingers on the replay button.
Featured artiste, Base One is an indigenous hip-hop artiste in a league of his own.
Self acclaimed as a “lyrical madman”, Base One is an engaging act to watch out for. His first single “SuruLere” has been getting great reviews and it’s already carving a niche for him in the Nigerian music scene.
Asides music, Nikki has her hands full as the Project Manager of Wahala Media Entertainment; Editor of their E! blog, WaHOLAAA!; whilst she runs her own design/printing outfit called “Scribbles by Nikki Laoye” as well as her NGO –“Angel 4 Life” Foundation.
Her groundbreaking singles, “Never Felt This Way Before” and “Taka Sufe” (her collaborative effort with Rooftop Mcs & her older brother, Rap2Sai) from her debut album – “ANGEL 4 LIFE” have wide acclaim till date, greatly spreading her fame amongst the young people in Nigeria and on the international scene as well.
The sensational singer/performer also caught the eye of American channel- BET (Black Entertainment Television) and she was chosen as one of the first three Nigerian Artists to be ever interviewed and showcased on the channel.
Her latest effort, “No Be Beans” is an amazing collaboration between Nikki and Base One as it offers more insight to her eccentric musical delivery and style.
For all her Fans who have been waiting earnestly for the next bit of work from the sensational singer/performer...the wait is now over and it's certainly worth it.
