A voice that needs to be heard, Israel Nkeki’s prepares us for his debut single ‘Moonlight’.

Israel Nkeki is set to release his powerful and emotive debut single ‘Moonlight’ on 20th June. The soulful track is poetic, using hard hitting lyricism that depicts Israel’s real life experiences.

Israel Nkeki’s upbringing, to put it simply, was one of a kind. A childhood spent in the gospel choirs of Benin City (Nigeria), but marred by family conflict and constant fighting. As a result a young Israel emigrated to New Cross (London), a lost teenager who found himself spiralling into a life on the streets and eventually prison. Fortunately Israel turned his life around, served his sentence and put his pain into the pursuit of a music career.

With life experience worthy of 100 films Israel Nkeki’s music depicts a rich tapestry that tells his life story. His tracks are soulful, emotive and poetic with hard hitting lyrics that tell it how it really is. His debut single ‘Moonlight’, due for release on 20th June, tells of how our split second decisions can have a profound impact on those around you.

‘Moonlight’ is a contemporary R&B track is full of feeling and soul, we can’t wait for the world to hear it on 20th June.

MJEEZ debuts new single ‘Don’t Go Away’ out July 28th

African singer/songwriter hopes to crack the UK music industry

Hailing from Eastern Nigeria, MJEEZ hopes to make a name for himself in the UK with new single, ‘Don’t Go Away’.

Starting with an inviting, beautiful guitar melody, ‘Don’t Go Away’ explores a break up MJEEZ had which inspired him to write the track. Universally relatable, MJEEZ’s smooth, soulful vocals lend to the singles emotional content. Yet the chorus sees an upbeat, strong percussive element making it a perfect Afropop-dance track for the party scenes.

Having supported big named African acts including, Dbanj, WizKid, ASA and P-Square, MJEEZ’s fan base is ever increasing and he can only go onwards and upwards. He has also performed to an audience of thousands at Felabration festival which celebrates Fela Kuti; one of Nigeria’s most prominent musical icons.

He has drawn influences from musical greats including Michael Jackson, Bob Marley and even political figures such as Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. MJEEZ says these influences have enabled him to produce music that “preaches love, unity and peace around the world”.

After receiving little support from family members who preferred he try a more stable career, MJEEZ didn’t let this stop him and he slept on the streets of Lagos, Nigeria to continue to pursue and make his musical ambition come true.

Since hearing new single ‘Don’t Go Away’ we can agree it was the right decision to follow his passion and continue making music.

Annastasia Baker releases powerful new single ‘Let Me Go’

Former X-Factor hopeful turns attention to raising awareness of Nigerian schoolgirl kidnappings

With an incredible voice that has seen her through to the X Factor judges’ houses on two previous series, vocalist Annastasia Baker is set to release a new single focused on raising awareness for the 200 schoolgirls recently kidnapped in Nigeria. The single, ‘Let Me Go’, sees Annastasia on powerful vocal form as she highlights an issue close to her heart.

A mother with a young daughter of her own, Annastasia cannot imagine what the families of the lost girls are going through. And without the financial means to directly impact the ongoing campaign to find them, she has turned to music as a tool to keep the situation in the public eye.

The result is this top quality, soulful pop song – due for release June 16th.

You can see the video here:

It’s not difficult to see from the track why Annastasia Baker’s voice has seen her so close to the X-Factor live finals on two occasions, and this isn’t the only time she has been successful on screen. Crowned winner of Gospel TV Show ‘Time2Shine’ last year, Annastasia is looking to build on that success and use it as a springboard for her own career, as well as continuing the fight to improve the situation in Nigeria.

‘Let Me Go’ is released June 16th – please use #BringBackOurGirls to support the campaign.
