I was listening to Yemi Alade’s Tangerine and after hearing her holler Kerewa wa a few times, I thought to myself… why don’t we bring these n****s in a throwback.
The endearing thing about this Kerewa song, would be it’s undulating beats and sordid lyrics that didn’t spare them a ban from the NBC when it’s gavel fell hard in verdict. Regardless, the video tells a sinuous story laid out in the lyrics while showing their traditional music showmanship in a dance craft as well as the culture of their local roots (Tiv, Benue State Nigeria).
Micheal Aboh and Al-Hassan Ibrahim (the Zule Zoo brothers) have long shelved their music aspirations and moved on to other events that offer them human satisfaction.
