Overview of Del B - Afrodisiac (The Mixtape)
Afrodisiac (The Mixtape) is a collection of urban African grooves in a number of sonic variations leaning on the sensual exchange on the dance floor, you want to dance and you want to make love at the same time. It’s a diverse collection of “international – African” vibes that you want to woo your love interest to.
This will be the first body of work of prolific Nigerian stellar producer, songwriter, and singer - Del B, who has been marking his fingerprints on the African music scene for years from behind the scene through a good number of hit songs with some of your favourite stars. In the last 3 years in between developing upcoming talents and working on records with the big stars, Del B has managed to introduce his recording artist side to the scene of things with well-received singles of his own heralded by his more famous colleagues, spun richly on radio and cable TV across the continent and great feedback from various parts of the world including South America and the Caribbean and now he is releasing this (project) as a first of a slew to come.
The tape is made up of 11 tracks (solo cuts and collaborations) featuring Seyi Shay, Mr Eazi, Davido, Wizkid, Flavour, Runtown, Dice Ailes, CDQ, Timaya, Bam Bam from Big Brother Nigeria and radio on-air personality Moet Abebe. Some cuts you can slow dance and grind to, some cuts you can waist whine to and some you can bust fancy homegrown hand and legwork moves to.
A short playlist of African dance tunes as inspired by, and dedicated to beautiful women of the motherland, and world at large. Del B also nursing a sense of corporate social responsibility wants to push positive statements and impacts on the back of his releases. He has chosen on and via this project to speak against the social ill of sexual assault of women, calling for higher respect and consideration for the safety of women in both private and public spaces of fun fare.
