The proceeds from Vimbuza will be used to support the Women’s Legal Centre in Cape Town and Jo’burg and the AMP music school in Grahamstown where equipment will be donated and a Beating Heart remix module would be developed where students can learn how to remix music from the archive, learning about their heritage in the process.
Now that’s music for a cause!
Music comes in many different shades and Bemyoda makes beautiful shades of music. Working with acts from various genres across the continent makes the cause of pushing African Music to the world even more wholesome.
On Signing with Africori –
“Nigerian singer/songwriter, Bemyoda has signed with Africori Music Group to license and distribute his forthcoming debut album, ‘Stark’, worldwide.
With offices in Johannesburg, Lagos and London, and representatives in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Ghana, Uganda and Rwanda, Africori is the leading digital music company for artists and labels in Africa. The company also operates the most established synch licensing platform in Africa.
‘Stark’ was recorded across 4 cities in Nigeria and USA: Abuja, Lagos, Cleveland and the world’s music capital, Nashville. It has been described as sublime, bold, and honest.”
On Strak the Album –
“As Nigeria battles for global stardom through the glistening, club-centric sounds of Afrobeats and hip hop, ‘Stark’ comes at an interesting time for the country’s canon, providing some much needed respite with its light-hearted pop sensibilities and somewhat nostalgic guitar riffs. Think Aloe Blacc meets Bez. With Bemyoda, we’re really excited about broadening the scope of what the international market expects from Nigeria” – Adam Tiran (Africori)
Bemyoda has released the first single ‘I Told You‘ accompanying it with visuals that many have described as a simple, sad and melancholic piece of art. ‘Stark’ is scheduled for release on June 9.
