In the new reality of the Nigerian music scene, only the most ingenious material makes it to the top, and it’s comforting to see new rappers or singers release excellent tracks every day. Cee Boi (or Christ Boi) is one of these bright young stars. His first two singles ‘Jesu Lo Kami Lowo Ko’ and ‘Principles’, herald his entry to the Nigerian music scene with a bang! He further cements the fact that Yoruba language remains relevant in Nigerian music today as he delivers his lines in such a way that would make the late Dagrin proud.
On ‘Jesu Lo Kami Lowo Ko’, he tells of how God has kept him away from vices thus far to allow him focus on the things that are truly important while in ‘Principles’, the young rapper does a good job of sampling BOB’s ‘Airplanes’. Listen to both songs below.
