Blazing Afropop Star Sean Dampte Drops Track, ‘Pepe (Remix)’ With Rising Nigerian Star BUJU & Nizzy

On the verge of his third full length project and the third series in his ‘Awoodah’ EP series, which is set for release next month, UK-based afropop and afrofusion artist SEAN DAMPTE unveiled his massive new single titled ‘PEPE (REMIX)’ featuring fellow UK-based afrofusion artist NIZZY and Nigerian rising star BUJU, who recently featured on the deluxe version of Wizkid’s ground-breaking album Made In Lagos and collaborated with Mavin Records’ Ladipoe on one of the biggest songs of the year ‘Feelings’.

Speaking about the inspiration behind his new ‘Pepe (Remix)’ single, Sean Dampte says: “Sometimes I find it difficult to fully express myself without my mother tongue, which is Yoruba. ‘Pe’ is the Yoruba word for complete and ‘pepper’ is Nigerian street slang for money, so the song title ‘Pepe’ is short for expressing that ‘Pepper pe’. Essentially, the song is me letting my woman know that I’ve got whatever it takes to give her whatever she wants because my money is complete – of course with help from Buju and Nizzy”.

Championed by the likes of MTV Base, BET, TRACE and Apple Music, while also having shared the stage with afrobeats royalty such as D’Banj, Wizkid, Davido and Wande Coal, Sean Dampte has been foundational and a staple fixture in the rise of afrobeats music in the UK, and is revered for his stellar fusion sound of afrobeats, dancehall and pop music, which has birthed such hits as ‘Alignment’, ‘You Can Call Me’, ‘2Nite’ and ‘Energy’, to mention a few, and amassed over four million plays along the way…Check out Sean Dampte’a sizzling hot single below…

I was privilege enough to be one of the first to hear DEMOLA‘s collaborative track with Afrobeat sensation Davido at the launch party on Monday…and let me tell you, this banger will have your hips swinging in no time.

Meaning ‘big drum’ the self-produced, infectious slice of Afropop is packed to the rafters with instrumentation as DEMOLA’s violin solo sings, trumpets and horns blow, and the ‘Gbedu’ thuds like a heartbeat throughout, making the record a celebration of culture, dance and the very sound that has become synonymous with the sweet and catchy Afrobeats sounds that have become one of the worlds most loved.

With a snappy, smooth and uplifting delivery, DEMOLA sets the tone and pace for this insanely catchy record, which encompasses every traditional element of Afrobeats and mixes it with genuine originality. The addition of Afrobeats star Davido, who lays down the perfect verse for this number only lends to further accentuate the radiance of the record.

Having already been associated with Mathew Knowles’ Music World Entertainment, DEMOLA released a previous collaboration on the label, ‘Light Up’ featuring Wande Coal.

Now making his global debut with UK based Track Record Entertainment (TRE), DEMOLA is thumping out his music to the sound of his ‘Gbedu’…check out the video below…
