Known for the versatility and laid-back sonic style evidenced across confident-yet-chill singles like “Miracle”, “Alakori” and “Pim Pim”, Nigerian singer-songwriter Dice Ailes takes a more confessional, intimate tone on his debut EP, 2022’s “Ladies First”.
The EP consists of six tracks including a feature with Afrobeats queen, Tiwa Savage. According to Dice, the EP stands as a six-track detour on the way towards the release of his debut LP, ‘Waterman’. “When I decided to touch up on some of these experiences with some of these ladies in my life, I felt that the best title for that project would be ‘Ladies First’, before the album,” Dice explains in a press release. “So it’s kind of like a play on words. It’s not exactly like ‘ladies first’, as gentleman would say—it’s basically ‘Ladies First’, before the Waterman album.”
