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…

Tamaraebi Deliver Us To Heavens Gates With Stunning New Visual


With an instantly identifiable sonic distinctiveness and creations that are all outstandingly astute, intuitive and insightful deconstructions of the human character, its intrinsic flaws and universally felt internal struggles through elegantly woven notes and narratives, seamlessly stitched together, it is little wonder as to why TAMARAEBI recently landed a publishing deal with Sony/ATV. 

In the throws of releasing a collection of brand new music for the ‘Heavens Gate’ EP, TAMARAEBI gifts the first single of the same name. Instantly alluring and enigmatic, the record swells in to a powerful, emotionally charged offering, marked by his remarkable vocal range and agility. His tender, velvety voice, which has echoes of The Weeknd, DVSN and Miguel, sit in beautiful cohesion with the infectious instrumental, something that characterises his memorable tracks throughout his ever-growing repertoire.
Nigerian-born,TAMARAEBI has a rich tapestry of influence and experience. His parents’ work for the United Nations meant a nomadic upbringing with Nigeria, Nairobi, India and Sudan being places he had the opportunity to call home during different points of his childhood and undoubtedly shaped both the compelling and astute character he has become and helped to prepare him for his music career. He has since gone on to be scouted by Tinie Tempah on Instagram, resulting in his publishing deal, as well as performing at Wembley Arena supporting Jonas Blue in 2017 and selling out his debut headline show at The Waiting Room in London earlier this year

With a strong promise of longevity, TAMARAEBI  is shaping up to be tomorrow’s torchbearer within the realm of Soul and RnB music, elevating the genres with his own inimitable iterations and delivering us to ‘Heavens Gate’ with this timeless anthem.
