After establishing a whole new vibe, rhythm and attitude on the street with his first EP titled “Street” on August 2, 2019, Dubai-based Nigerian music creator, musician and show promoter Badmus Akeem O , better known as Baddyoosha, has unleashed his second EP titled “September 30” on his birthday on September 30, 2020.
“It was recorded while I was in quarantine in Dubai with my longtime friend and producer Pjay, who finally got stuck in Dubai after visiting him just before all flights were suspended. It wasn’t long before we decided to make use of my in-house studio and, with Pjay at my disposal, we started creating “on September 30th the EP”.
I have partnered with other notable street artists to produce an ode to street music. It is my gift to the street once again. It is for the people and by the people. With many hardships in society due to COVID-19 and a tough economic climate, people want music that they can dance to, rejoice and relate to, and I delivered on September 30 the EP.
The 7-track EP showcases Baddy Oosha’s versatility and playful side, something the artist has not featured on his previous releases, previously focusing on heavier tracks.
The project opens with “September 30, the introduction”, which acts as a summary of their first EP “Street”, as well as introducing people to the new project and the playful theme, properly setting the tone.
“Hustler’s Anthem” continues with the soulful voice of producer and Oosha’s friend, Pjay, as they create a melodious rags-to-riches street hymn that is sure to resonate with many.
The third track, “Ashakasha”, will surely make you smile, the cheeky lyrics are not for the faint-hearted.
“44-4 Foti” is the fourth track and the big highlight of the project, which was a spontaneous collaboration, after Naira Marley performed at one of Baddy Oosha’s sold-out events in Dubai. The track features the two exchanging boastful letters.
The following offering “H’oil 2.0” is the hottest track on the EP that focuses on a viral meme of Oosha and a fan of her show “Lion’s Party” on Instagram live. Following the success of H’oil, Oosha asked Slimcase to join him in the success.
Party Hard, the sixth track and most prominent dance floor, is infused with dancehall and reggaeton vibes, Remisnsce’s infectious beat and hard-hitting verse will have you dancing. The ending song of the EP “It’s Plenty” is a joyous song about opulence and serves as an opportunity for Oosha to thank her comrades, followers and fans.
