Afrocolours pioneer, Uduak Daniel steps out with No Remain
For phenomenal singer, songwriter and medical geneticist Uduak Daniel; the aim of every creative project is to reach the point called exceptional and phenomenal. This got her into doing something different from the popular at the time when she launched in 2001, creating Afrocolours- a fusion of Jazz, Folk, Gospel and African music/sounds.
Daniel, who is also a developmental practitioner and director in the public service started her music career in Calabar and she says she wants to continue making timeless music that will resonate with everyone. In 2002 when she launched her music career with the release of her debut album, Hold On, the album impacted the music industry especially in southern Nigeria, opening doors for other young artistes to be innovative in their creative process.
According to her, “the motivation for Hold On was the confidence that I had something unique and timeless to offer to the world”. Laced with spiritual, inspirational and prophetic lyrics, her music is positively affirmative and prophetic for christians.
After the success of her debut album which enjoyed massive airplay on major radio stations across the country and Africa, in 2006, she released “The Father’s Heart” which was the first live recorded concert project in Calabar.
In 2010, while preparing her fans and supporters for her third studio album; she released an EP, “Uduak Daniel Promo.”
After a five-year hiatus, she returned in 2015 with “Arise Nigeria.” that was widely welcomed and appreciated because the message addressed the gloomy season Nigeria was in at the time.
That same year, she released her third, self-titled studio album, “Uduak Daniel;” a cocktail of diverse sounds from around the globe. The project embodied the eka ekong sound from Akwa Ibom, Salsa, Swing, Reggae and Raggaton, Gospel, Soul, Negro Spirituals, Afrobeat, Folk and Jazz and was considered by music pundits as her best body of work yet and one of the best by a Nigerian in that class.
In 2020, she released “Your Sister” which addresses gender-based and domestic violence.
2021 looks like a big year for her as she started out with Sessions with Uduak Daniel where she performs live renditions of her songs. She also released her first single for 2021 titled “No Remain.”
Produced by Wale Adeoye, it was released exclusively on Boomplay Music and is doing well both home and abroad.
