Dunnie Levels Up With Amazon
They say the third time’s a charm! And now, Prolific Nigerian record producer and singer, Dunnie has stepped out with her third compilation soundpiece, a vibrant extended play (EP) dubbed Amazon.
“I am beyond excited to have finally created this masterpiece. I look forward to sharing this spectacular output to not only Nigeria but the entire world”, an excited Dunnie tells Guardian Music. Following the success of her earlier releases, Overdose (featuring Oxlade), Mosafejo, among others, Dunnie creates a statement record that solidifies her persona as a versatile, crowd-controlling, and introspective musician.
The 8-track project opens up with the party-popping Afro-pop sensual jam One Night, and tarries on several pleasure spots with songs like Rich Aunty Vibes, Oh Baby (featuring Cavemen), Mosafejo, as well as the prayerful ballad, Akooba. She also sprinkles a pan-African vibe with Nakupenda, which she creates alongside Kenyan band, H_art The Band, as well as Tanzanian superstar, Darassa.
Speaking about her creative process, Dunnie said that, “Each track consists of well-thought lyrics and beats selected for the purpose to provide listeners with a better feel of afrobeat. Amazon The EP is an expression of ‘Afrobeats to the world’ because the album speaks deeply for itself”.
The singer is also currently up for her collaboration with Busiswa at the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA). In April, she produced Shontelle’s comeback single House Party, a reggae number that was minted as NFT (Non-Fungible Token). Dunnie has had an interesting run in the past months; with Overdose having amassed about three million streams across streaming platforms while enjoying heavy rotations on radio and TV.
Amazon is currently available across digital streaming platforms.
