WANI is coming back on the music scene with full force and he dropped a teaser single to whet the appetite of his audience.
Born in Washington DC and spending his childhood in Lagos, WANI is best known for his amazing ability to blur the lines between afrobeats and R&B. His unique tastes blend the sensibilities of his Western nationality with the captivating tunes of contemporary alternative Nigerian music.
The singer, songwriter and audio engineer, WANI, has teamed up with industry superstar, Buju, to release ‘Times Two’ in anticipation of his forthcoming EP release, ‘Lagos City Vice II’.
‘Times Two’, the lead single off ‘Lagos City Vice II’, starts off with a funky Spanish guitar riff and the addictive vibe is highlighted by the RnB vocals of the singing duo.
The hot new track sees the artistes share their different perspectives on love, time, money and how they balance it all as they continue to gain more and more success in the Nigerian music industry.
WANI spoke about the upcoming release and saying, “It’s been a long road leading up to the release of my project Lagos City Vice II. But we’re almost at the finish line and I’m finally feeling ready. The first single of the project “Times Two” ft. Buju is the perfect vibe to kick off the summer. We’ve worked on a lot of music but this is the one track we decided to put out for the people, especially with the current climate, everything slowly opening back up again, might as well give the people something to dance to”.
As WANI prepares for the Platoon-powered release of his sophomore EP – a sequel to his breakout project – fans and the industry await with high anticipation levels to see the growth of WANI’s unique talent and the new ways with which he approaches his sound. Though the title implies a continuation, ‘Lagos City Vice II’ marks a brand new chapter in WANI’s artistry, one for which he has been preparing for since the beginning of his career.
