K-Arrowz - Me Ya Faru ft ziriums

 They have sailed across the deep tortures of Hausa Hip-hop for a very long time. They have navigated and survived the odds. And now they are asking ME YA FARU?

They have withstood a lot of pressure from the odd world of music. When they ask for answers, they never seem to get one.They keep asking them one question whenever they are silent for a while, ME YA FARU?

 K-ARROWZare one of the fewest recipients in the New rising hip-hop genre HAUSA HIP-HOP. They are deeply and strongly indigenous when it comes to this particular genre of music. They were once a group of Six (6) until the group faded into just two (2) surviving members.

That is to tell you that hip-hop is not for kids. They are the true definition of Hip-Hop culture which is determination, hope and patience.

K-ARROWZ needs no further introduction. They drop their first official new single in the year 2016 titled ME YA FARU? ME YA FARU means WHAT IS HAPPENING or rather WHAT IS GOING ON in the literal English term. The song tells a deep story about life’s unfortunate happenings that seem to happen every single day. People don’t care about people. The golden rule of “love your neighbor as yourself” has vanished in the mind of everyone.

When people smile, all they ask is ME YA FARU? When they cry, people still ask ME YA FARU? This conscious rap song will touch you deeply when you listen to the song which has an expressive story line from K-ARROWZ themselves.

They feature another brother in the game who is among the pioneers of the Hausa Hip-Hop rap genre, US based and Kano born rapper, ZIRIUMS. With his recent visit back to Nigeria, the dread wearing artist hooked up with this duo to come out with this song.

 ZIRIUMS was not left out also as he poured out his own experience and facts about what is actually happening. Mhiz Ene is a new entrant into the music game. She did solemly well to deliver a touching hook to the song. With few words from the hook asking “Why you hating on a brother. Tell me why you hating on a brother. ME YA FARU?”

Produced by AMMA AWARD winning Sound Engineer NexceZz BeatZ, download this song and gulp in the ocean of real good music.

DADDY FRESH JAMAL (@daddyfreshjamal)-Lord Of Mercy

DADDY FRESH JAMAL drops this fresh new song exclusively for his teeming fans titled LORD OF MERCY.


LORD OF MERCY is a song that will sweep you off your vibe. The trap-like beat and vocal delivery is indeed out of this planet.


Daddy Fresh is indeed back and better. He keeps surprising everyone with his unique tone and deeply enriched Hausa vocabularies. Spitting in your mother tongue is not for the kids. If you are good, you are good, says the artist during his press release.


According to him, he has been away for far too long but it feels good to be back into the game. With rumours spreading around that the game is up for Daddy Fresh Jamal, I decided to drop this song ASAP and let my fans know that the game has indeed just begun for me.


The song has a deep catchy hook, with a sort of patois feeling and vibe added to make it look Caribbean. Produced by AMMA Award Sound Engineer, NexceZz Beatz, the song was also mastered by him. 


“There are new song right now been worked upon by me and my management. They will be on air very soon” says Daddy Fresh Jamal. Singles that will drop include BAD GIRL and TAMBAYA. Fans should watch out.

OPEN LETTER TO AREWA 24

 


I wish to remain anonymous and let the whole world know about the philanthropic work AREWA 24 has been doing in the whole world most especially with regards to one of their most entertaining programs that relates to hip-hop.

It was dark times for the youths in Arewa. There has never been a time when individuals or any organization has come out to help change the orientation of the youth via television broadcasting until the arrival of AREWA 24.

Were such programs were arranged, selfish bigots come out with means to tarnish the mainframe of the project claiming that it guides the youths to unwanted moral misdemeanors.

Over the years, it is the same youths that have been used for political thuggery during pre and post-election violence. Most of these youths end up wasting the lifespan of their lives doing nothing. Unemployment has always been the order of the day. This is a true fact.

AREWA 24 became the only pioneering and leading free-to-air satellite channel to deliver a mouth-gaping miracle within the space of just 2 years. By the next 10 years, it will transform the entire Arewa youths in the world into a unified realm.

Entertainment is the only means by which information can be passed in this 21st century. This is the only medium by which the youths are engaged in positive thinking. We are all aware of other television channels that to some extent promote videos that contain nudity, drugs, obscene images, violence, crime and other negative vices. But AREWA 24 to my own knowledge is one channel that most families can watch hip-hop programs without blinking their eyelids.

There has been no single indigenous station in Arewa that has brought families together other than AREWA 24. The program H HIPHOP which is a program that centers on the youth has united a lot of families, friends, relations, neighbors and even a region. The package of the program is so unique that households can’t wait for the weekend to come.  Almost 85% of households outside the Arewa boundary which may include communities that have links to the Hausa language are loyal fans of the program. You may call them addicts if you wish but it is all about a matter of choice.

So many TV channels have been thinking of a program that will capture the youths. I do believe that AREWA 24 has the antidote already. All that remains is for the station to add up more programs that will entirely centre on the youths because they are the only age group that have the access to watch most digital satellite programs.

There has been a rallying cry calling for the suspension or removal of the TV program H HIPHOP. There has equally been hate speeches about the effect of hip-hop to the society been spread by uneducated authors who are suffering from malignant illiteracy. There was a time when the timing of the program affected the fan base of the TV Channel. Those calling for the shots have no basis whatsoever to call for such rickety action.
Never has there been a time where any hip-hop artist presented in the show has come out to promote crime, nudity, sexuality, hate speech, rape, or any negativity. We are well aware that not everybody is a saint, but majority carry the vote. Most of these artists promote peace, unity, true life experiences and what the society is facing real time. No music genre speaks for the masses and for the society directly like HIP-HOP.

Artists that have featured in over 80 episode of the H HIPHOP show which is anchored by AMINU ABBA UMAR (Nomiis Gee) are graduates, undergraduates, workers in other professions or still in pursuit of their educational/academic careers. Some are role models in the society and they have a voice.
Indications from experiences shared during interviews by these artists have shown that their parents have been against them stepping into the shoes of being artists. But on the long run, they finally give their blessings and they are quite impressed with what their children are doing when they see them expressing their God-gifted talents to the world via AREWA 24.

AREWA 24 is a channel for AREWA and not a channel for a particular STATE or LANGUAGE or REGION. Arewa as it may be to some don’t know that it has over 350 ethnic tribes. Being that HAUSA is the lingua franca spoken in this region, does not provide the basis for it to be a monopolized channel.
At this point, I wish to let the management of AREWA 24 to know that what is good for the goose is also good for the gander. Anything good comes with a lot of challenges. Keep up the good work. One way to help uplift the good work you are doing is to organize seminars, workshops, events or shows that will help these upcoming artists to guide those at their infant stage who are willing to embrace entertainment as a means of survival.

Make them ambassadors. Make them role models and never relent on your effort to promote the positive side of these talented and gifted youths who are determined to change the face of the world through music. All they need your support and I do believe that you have the support of the youths 100%.
As for the Hip-Hop artists, I implore you to do good songs that are meaningful, well documented and well rehearsed so that those disseminating the negativity of hip-hop will have no room for that. Promote the norms and values of AREWA through your music.

HIP-HOP is a culture. Let us stick to our own culture.  “Duk wanda ya bar gida, gida ya bar shi”. Likewise, don’t keep mute and watch the good works you are doing being destroyed by illiterates. Speak out and defend your profession. Stand as one body and protect your profession. These are my last words.

HHH: YOUR RECENT WORK WHICH WAS A TRIBUTE TO BARMANI CHOGE, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE PROJECT?
FRAZE: I WOULD SAY IT WAS A VERY BEAUTFUL EXPERIENCE. THOUGH THERE WERE SOME UPS AND DOWNS DURING THE WORK (WHICH IS NORMAL).BUT WHEN I TURN AROUND AND LOOK AT THE FINISHED JOB, I AM LIKE WOW! IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT.

HHH: WHAT WAS IT LIKE WORKING WITH BOBBY HAI?
FRAZE: IT WAS A VERY TOUGH ONE. HE IS A NO NONSENSE GUY. IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED, YOU CAN'T WORK WITH BOBBY HAI.

HHH: HOW CAN YOU SAY THE HIPHOP GAME HAS BEEN TREATING YOU AS AN ARTIST IN THE CITY OF ABUJA AND AREWA AS A WHOLE?
FRAZE: IT IS TAKING A NEW DIMENSION BECAUSE GUYS ARE REALLY LOOKING INTO FINDING OUT WHAT IS THE REAL BACKGROUND OF HIPHOP. THEY ARE REALLY WORKING TOWARDS ACHIEVING IT. THEY ARE GIVING US OUR OWN KIND OF HIPHOP.THIS IS A WELCOME DEVELOPMENT. BEFORE NIGERIAN ARTISTS DONT REALLY KNOW HOW HARD IT IS AND THEY WERE ABUSING IT. BUT WE HAVE UPCOMERS SHAPING THE GAME AND THEY ARE REALLY TALENTED AND THEY KNOW THE GAME.I AM REALLY PROUD TO BE A NIGERIAN TO BE CANDID ON THAT REGARD.

I AM PRESENTLY WORKING ON HOW TO DROP THE MIXTAPE BUT WE (MANAGEMENT) HAVEN'T CONCLUDED ON AN OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE YET. FANS SHOULD EXPECT SOMETHING DIFFERENT.THEY WOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY OF FEELING THE OTHER SIDE OF FRAZE. WHEN IT COMES TO BEING FRAZE, FRAZE IS UHMMM.....

HHH:

FRAZE: IT'S NOT UNIQUE ACTUALLY...HOW DO YOU CALL SOME ONE WHO CAN DO A LOT OF STUFF AT THE SAME TIME?

HHH:
YOU ARE DYNAMIC.
FRAZE: I CAN SAY I AM DYNAMIC AND UHMM....I STILL HAVEN'T GET THAT WORD.

HHH:
YOU STILL NEED A WORD TO DESCRIBE WHO YOU ARE?
FRAZE: YEAH YEAH...... LIKE HOW JESSE JAGZ USED IN HIS ALBUM JAGZ OF ALL TRADE?!

FRAZE: YEAH SOMETHING LIKE JACK OF ALL TRADE. I LOVE SINGING,THOUGH I RAP. I LOVE THIS RAGGA THING. I LOVE COUNTRY MUSIC. I HAVE TRIED A LOT OF STUFF AND I JUST FIT IN PERFECTLY. BUT PEOPLE FEEL ME MORE AS A RAPPER BUT I AM COMING UP WITH SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM THE NORMAL "ABUN DADI" THING THEY KNOW ME WITH.


HHH:
ANY WORDS FOR OTHER ASPIRING ARTISTS OUT THERE?
FRAZE: THEY SHOULD ALWAYS BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES. THEY SHOULD ALWAYS BELIEVE IN GOD. THEY SHOULD BE UNIQUE AND CREATIVE. THEY SHOULD BE DEDICATED AND DEVOTED TO WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN. THEY SHOULD KNOW THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF UPS AND DOWNS BUT THEY SHOULD HAVE THAT SPIRIT TO ENDURE, TO FOCUS, TO STRATEGIZE AND IF IT DOESN'T WORK, TO RE-STRATEGIZE.

HHH: ANY FOOD FOR THOUGHT?
FRAZE: I LOVE MAKING EVERY EXPERIENCE EDUCATIONAL.

HHH: THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.
FRAZE: MY PLEASURE.
