Basiil Steps Out With Vibration
FROM the stable of respected Afrobeats kingmaker, Bankulli, fast-rising Afro-fusionist Basiil has joined the Nigerian music community, with a thrilling debut dubbed, Vibration.
Under the tutelage of the seasoned music A&R, and documentarist whose career credits feature names like Kanye West, Davido, D’banj, among many others, the young singer blooms with a distinctive vocal texture and range, which marks him as an imminent force majeure within Afrobeats
While the song’s enchanting melodies and carefully crafted arrangement work in perfect harmony, beyond its musical allure Vibration carries a deeper significance. The lyrics convey a reassuring message, emphasising the yearning to exist on a higher frequency and detach oneself from anything that lacks meaning or purpose.
Commenting on the new single, the rising superstar told Weekend Beats: “I am absolutely thrilled to unveil my music to the world. It has been a journey filled with anticipation, and now the moment has finally arrived. I sincerely hope that the immense joy I experienced while recording Vibration will be mirrored in the hearts of my listeners. I would also like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Bankulli for his inspiring words and my incredible team for their unwavering support up to this point. “Vibration” is merely a glimpse of what lies ahead! Stay tuned, as there’s much more to come.”
He also announced a forthcoming EP to commemorate his evolution, which is expected to be an enthralling debut altogether.
Impressively, despite his tender age, he has already amassed a significant following and has garnered praise from a host of industry heavyweights, including Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, Asake, Oxlade, and Flavour, among others. In addition to his star-studded industry connections, BASIIL has also made his mark on television, appearing on high-profile platforms such as AriseNEWS and TVC.
