Fast rising Afro-pop sensation, Blast Champ has released a new single Nwayor.
The new song, dropped recently and already enjoying rotation on some urban radio stations, is a fusion of Afro and Hip-hop.
Nwayor, the second single of Blast Champ, is expected to stamp the singer’s feet in the sand of time and made him compete favourably with others in the Afro-pop genre of the Nigerian music industry.
A release from Blast Champ’s PR reps stated that the singer, rapper and songwriter is working with a couple of music producers to bring out the best music to his fans.
Interestingly, like Psquare, Blast Champ also has a twin brother with him in his music sojourn. But unlike the Okoye brothers, Blast Champ sings while his twin brother produces most of his songs under the name Nedz Beats.
At the heat of the fight in the Psquare music empire, BC once said he knew the fight was not going to last because the brothers are twins.
He said he believed that the brothers will soon come to terms because they shared the same womb as twins. Just like he had predicted, the Psquare twins apologised to their fans and came back together as a group.
BC as Blast Champ is fondly called by his fans, was born Anigala Chuka on 30 May 1991 in Delta State. He always had passion for music because of the background in which he was brought up and then he discovered his talent in music at a tender age. Having graduated from the University of Benin in 2013 with a degree in Economics, BC abandoned his degree and focused on music.
BC played the flute in primary school and was a member of his secondary choir. He performed at various school events as a student of University of Benin, Edo state.
With few years in the industry, the talented act has been able to blend the Igbo flavor of highlife with the contemporary hip hop music. His first single Boo Boo Me was released in 2014 and was produced by his twin brother, Nedz Beats.
The singer and song writer is signed to Meshtro Entertainment. He is already working on a new single that will help launch him into the big league of artistes in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
