Nigerian singer, songwriter and producer Lojay teamed up with fellow Lagos native and prolific, internationally renowned, super-producer Sarz for this new single titled “Tonongo“.
Tonongo showcases Lojay’s sublime vocals alongside Sarz’s slick production which blends contemporary Afrobeats with urgent hip-Hop and sensual R&B sounds. On the track, Lojay reveals his romanticism, recounting his own experience as a man in love with a stripper.
Lojay explains the message of the track: “‘Tonongo‘ expresses the depth of emotion that lies beneath the surface. The single was inspired by the atmosphere of a strip club – dark and moody – a fitting ode to the dancer that inspired the writing of this song. I love the duality of this track. It ended up building itself and that’s the beauty of it, the beauty of the music. It’s so spiritual. I’m just a vessel. I hope people can relate to it and find beauty in it.”
The single was taken from a forthcoming collaborative EP from the dynamic duo and is assisted by a must-see visual.
