Llast Friday, May 6, 2022, music enthusiasts, critics, writers and lovers of sound from across the social spectrum, gathered at quaintly ubiquitous Untitled, Ikoyi, Lagos, for a one-of-a-kind blind listening of the hugely anticipated afro-soul project, Post-19.

Last Friday, May 6, 2022, music enthusiasts, critics, writers and lovers of sound from across the social spectrum, gathered at quaintly ubiquitous Untitled, Ikoyi, Lagos, for a one-of-a-kind blind listening of the hugely anticipated afro-soul project, Post-19.

Post-19 is a cinematic electro-soul project that fuses the finest elements of afro-soul with the purest elements of East Asian sounds. Tracking the artistes hyperbolic emotional encounter with lockdown and its offerings, Post-19 meanders through the innocence and transition of time, life and love.

The event brought pre-release activities for the album one step closer to the May 20, 2022 release date. The festive evening of fine music, canapes and the finest cocktail serves from Gordon’s Moringa Citrus Blend, was a rapturous success as Motolani Alake, music editor at Pulse NG, and Tinya Alonge, Brand Ambassador at Diageo, guided guests through the seven-track cinematic album, each supported by beautiful music videos.

Feedback was swift and stellar. Guests universally extolled the creativity, craftsmanship and the pleasure of each of the seven songs and the accompanying music videos.

Guests were especially gushing in comments about the unique blind listening format and the daring of an artiste that would seek the unvarnished opinions of music heads.
 
With reviews in, the artiste will be announced this Friday, May 13, 2022, and Post-19, the album, will be released on Friday May 20, 2020.
