You will remember Folk/Soul singer and songwriter Bemyoda from his debut single, “Shima Yam”, which was undoubtedly one of the best Nigerian songs of 2012. The song was so critically acclaimed among radio and online tastemakers that Bemyoda was invited to perform it on Ndani TV’s very exclusive series, Ndani Sessions.
His second single, “Faded Grace” also received rave reviews from fans and critics and was again picked up by Ndani TV and used as an official soundtrack for their renowned web series, Gidi Up which starred the likes of Oreka Godis, Lynxxx, Burna Boy and Bimbo Manuel among others.
Along with his two previous singles, Bemyoda blesses us with three brand new songs on his Sketch EP and just as we fell in love with him on “Shima Yam” and “Faded Grace”, be prepared to fall in love with Bemyoda all over again.
From the strings-led acoustic gem and tribute song, “Always” with its emotive lyrics and lush Pop sensibilities to the IBKspaceshipboi-produced “Broken Pieces” to “No No” which was co-written by Adebola Rayo with backing vocals from Project Fame’s Lindsey, Bemyoda’s Sketch EP not only makes for very essential listening but it is also the only record you will need this year!
