TG Omori Directs PaBrymo's "In Battle" Music Video | Fab.ng

PaBrymo enlisted the expertise of renowned video director, TG Omori, for the visuals of his most recent release, the Amapiano and Hip Hop fusion, “In Battle“, featuring the Street Hop expert, Zlatan.

PaBrymo has a profound connection to music which is intricately intertwined with his life and personal experiences and he attributes a portion of his success to the strong community he has fostered over time.

This perspective guided the creation of his EP, “City Boy“, which was released in August 2023 and featured collaborations with ODUMODUBLVCK, Seyi Vibez, and Kida Kudz.

Despite the positive reception on Nigerian streaming platforms, PaBrymo faces criticism for allegedly not obtaining clearance from Gospel singer, Gloria Oluchi, whose single “We Are In Battle“, was sampled for the chorus of his hit song.

This incident adds PaBrymo to a growing list of artists facing claims of copyright infringement. The issue echoes a similar controversy involving breakout artist Shallipopi in 2023, accused of unlawfully sampling Pa Monday Edogbaisi‘s song for the hit “Oba Pluto“.

Critics point out the irony of PaBrymo affording the expensive services of TG Omori while allegedly neglecting the clearance for the sample that contributed significantly to his song’s success.

Observers argue that such instances highlight the lack of established structures and institutions in the Nigerian music industry, emphasizing the need for adherence to due process and addressing structural deficiencies within the Afrobeats genre.

BNXN and Ruger have finally put their two-year-long feud behind them with their collaborative song release, “Romeo Must Die (RMD).” This single marks a new chapter for both artists and signifies a fresh start in their relationship.

While fans were initially curious about the musical direction the song would take, given BNXN’s lean towards R&B and Ruger’s focus on dancehall, the artists have successfully blended their styles. Produced by Kukbeats, the song celebrates their success and throws subtle shade at their critics.

The song “Romeo Must Die” is a direct reference to the popular action movie released in the year 2000. The film starred martial arts star Jet Li and the late R&B singer Aaliyah.

This collaboration between BNXN and Ruger is a significant one, as it’s the first song they’ve released together in 2024, and it follows a successful year for both artists in 2023.

An important thing to note is that Ruger recently left his previous label, Jonzing World. Because of this, “Romeo Must Die” is his first song released under his own new label called Blown Boy.

British-Nigerian rapper Skepta is teaming up with rising Nigerian star Portable for a new Afrobeats song titled “Tony Montana.” This collaboration marks Skepta’s exploration of the Afrobeats genre, potentially connecting with his Nigerian roots.

The song, produced by award-winning JAE5, follows Portable’s “Tony Montana of London” EP, released earlier in 2024. Notably, Portable’s visit to the UK in the same year led to this collaboration with Skepta.

Fans on social media are excited about the single, particularly impressed by Portable’s contribution. His melodic chorus is a departure from his usual “hoarse street music” style.

“Tony Montana” is not Skepta’s first foray into exploring collaborations with Nigerian artists. Earlier this year, he released “Jangrova,” featuring Nigerian rapper Odumodublvck and British-Ghanaian actor Idris Elba.

Interestingly, Skepta recently made his directorial debut with the movie “Tribal Mark,” focusing on a British-Nigerian hitman. He reportedly decided to create this film as a response to discussions about casting a black actor for the role of James Bond.

“Tony Montana” serves as one of the lead singles for Skepta’s upcoming sixth album, “Knife & Fork,” expected to be released later in 2024. This collaboration and album anticipation mark a promising year for the British-Nigerian artist.
