Nigerian singer Bez is set to headline a concert in Nairobi at the National Museum. He spoke about his new single featuring Kenya's Sara Mitaru, his performance tomorrow at the Tusker Malt 100 club and his BET 106 and Park debut.
Bez said he met with Kenyan producer Blackman when he came to Lagos to meet his producer Cobhams. " He shared Sara's beautiful music with us as well. We immediately knew we were on the same wavelength. Weeks later I was on a flight to Kenya to meet Sara for a jam session. Her music was amazing and she had an awesome personality," Bez told Word Is via an email interview.
Thereafter Blackman wrote the song, Keep Me From You that features Sarah Mitaru that was recorded both in Kenya and Nigeria. "We figured environment was key in whatever we were speaking about in the music. We had to establish a connection," Bez said.
The two will be performing tomorrow at the National Museum. He promises, "an awesome experience," with "a collaborative set structure and of course a performance of Keep Me From You".
Bez is the first Africa to debut his music video dubbed Stupid Song, on BET's 106 and Park. He said, "It was an amazing experience! I had family and friends by the TV and when the video came on, we couldn't watch because people just kept screaming and hugging. It may not be huge for some, but just like the first time you hear your music on the radio, you feel awesome."
