Rova out with Pandemic the EP
As part of efforts to ease tension created by the COVID-19 pandemic, singer/rapper, Rova, has teamed up with Nigerian afrobeat and Akpala (traditional Yoruba music) hip-pop musician, Terry Apala, to deliver a three-track Extended Play (EP) entitled, Pandemic the EP.
According to Rova, who hails from Anambra State and from a family of seven, the work, produced by Mr. Marz and Klef, mixed and mastered by Blazer & Badass, is actually his first full project and perfectly timed for artistic consciousness based on the current global pandemic that has made him reflect on a lot of things.
The former agro export consultant, who quit his job, in 2018, to focus solely on music, said: “The Pandemic EP is the kind of sound that an everyday hustler, boy or girl, can relate to and vibe with. It also talks about socio economic issues, so, I advice everyone to listen and enjoy my school of thought. Secondly, I’m very picky with features, because it’s easy to water down the consciousness of a song when it’s more than one artist on it, but Terry was just perfect because he has a flavour to his vibe and he spits depth from all angles.
“I feel like the level of consciousness and the intensity of the messages that were passed in that EP can’t be over exaggerated. Making it longer might have taken us away from the actual reason for the EP or even watered down the consciousness. I think three songs were just perfect,” said Rova.
Drawing inspiration from the state of the economy and behavioural patterns, the singer said his genre of music is Rova music. “I vibe to anything, hip-hop Soul, RnB, reggae, Afrobeats, dancehall… I like to create music in my own way. So, I’ll call my genre Rova Music. Rova was coined from Rover, which means somebody who can play in any part of the field.”
On what his fans should expect, he said, “I basically have an arsenal of music and I record a lot, so, it’s more contents and diversity in creativity. The next project I will drop will probably not be too hip-hop but very conscious as well, be it a love song or a party song it has to have some sort of message. So, it’s more work and ways to satisfy my growing fans.”
