Multi-award winning Gospel artist Muyiwa, has always broken boundaries in his delivery. He is the first and only UK Gospel artiste to sell out the Ocean Music Venue, Hackney, He is also the first and only UK Gospel artiste to sell out the 02 Arena, London. Muyiwa has also top the UK Jazz and Blues Album Chart for a 5-month period. In 2009, Muyiwa became the first-ever international act to perform on America’s popular entertainment channel, BET, for the prestigious annual celebration of the Gospel show.
It has been 3 years since the distinctive UK Gospel artiste released a work, therefore it is only right that he makes a grand comeback.
Come May 11th, 2018, Muyiwa will release his latest effort titled “Alade Wura”. The unconventional urban music presents Muyiwa in new light, accentuating his return as resplendent due to the unusual style Muyiwa chose for his expression.
Muyiwa has always be known for fusing Conventional Gospel music with Contemporary elements and Afrocentric vibes. Also he has always been a lover of the Hip Hop genre, therefore he should not come as a big surprise that he is tapping into the genre for a grand comeback.
“Most people are obsessed with trying to create something that fits another people type, another culture. I am doing me. I am British, I am African, I am me,” Muyiwa posited.
He employs the expertise of UK-based Urban contemporary Gospel Rap artist Guvna B to give “Alade Wura” that all-round Hip Hop feel.
“Those who know me know that Hip Hop was my thing and that I was a massive garage head. So for me, it was me reaching back to what I love. Guvna B is like a brother to me and one of my personal favourite artists. We’d never spoken about a collaboration until now.”
Produced by Ghana based Francis Kweku Osei, ‘Alade Wura’ will be available on all streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music and Google Play.
