In recent times, Nigeria has caught the attention of music lovers around the world as the local urban pop sound (internationally known as Afrobeats) continue to get the attention of US listeners. This is most likely due to collaborations between Nigerian artistes and their American counterparts. Musicians like Davido, Wizkid, and Burna Boy have collaborated with top US HipHop acts like Beyonce, Nas, Meek Mill, Drake and Nicki Minaj. More recently, Wizkid and Burna Boy bagged awards in the last edition of The Grammys.
While all these feats are laudable but what the international scene may not know yet is that HipHop lives in the same space and time zone where Afrobeats reside and Duno is prepared to walk everyone through it.
Duno, born Osaheni Akpata in the historical city of Benin, Nigeria began writing raps in 2000 and was greatly influenced by Golden age rappers like Nas, KRS One, Tupac, Notorious Big Pun and Big L. This comes as no surprise as it’s quite evident in his seamless cadence and lyricism.
“Too Many”, the first single from “The Love Conference” EP got a cosign from Slaughter House member “Crooked I” when the song was shared with him on Twitter and that’s a valid attestation to his penmanship.
