‘As part of activities leading up to the launch of his debut album, Alternative Soul artiste, Bez Idakula has officially released the remix of his Super Sun single; which is also the title of his forthcoming album.
Arranged by the hugely talented Cobhams Asuquo; the Super Sun remix features amazing appearances from Eva Alordiah, Eldee and Oleku prodigy; Ice Prince. The upbeat, feel-good groovy track is a glorious mix of rap, alternative soul and masterful acoustic influences for which Bez Idakula is well known. The listener comes away feeling hopeful, re-energized and ready to take on the world!
The hugely anticipated Super Sun album, a career debut from the incredibly talented artiste is set to be officially released at a launch party on July 24th 2011. The event which will take place at the upscale SS Lounge, 7 Sapara Williams Street, Victoria Island promises to be an evening of exciting performances by Bez, mind blowing delivery and superb music. Tickets for the event will be available for sale at N5, 000 at selected outlets and event partners.
A natural performer with a charismatic and playful stage presence, Bez has already opened for international acts like Asa, Angie Stone and Yolanda Brown in a series of high profile shows and events like the Lagos Jazz series, Smooth FM’s ‘Love Music, Love Life’ luxury concert and Sax Appeal 2. He has also performed alongside Africa’s premiere entertainers like Nneka, Tuface, Mike Aremu, and South African based Judith Sephuma. From big band shows with his swinging five man band, to intimate acoustic showcases led by his masterful guitar playing, Bez is a performer to behold.
The 15 track Super Sun album which was entirely produced by the enigmatic Cobhams Asuquo, with the exception of one track produced by IBK, captures the rare and un-distilled essence of Bez. He experiments with new upbeat and groovy sounds, drawing from fresh acoustic influences as he takes the listener on a journey of self discovery, love and inspiration. Featuring hits such as ‘Zuciya Daya’ – (One Heart), ‘More You’ ‘Stop Pretending’ and the self titled ‘Super Sun,’ listeners get the feel of an artiste who gently fuses an understated and unusual hybrid of soul, jazz, R&B and Hip-Hop music that sets him well apart from the main stream Afro-hip-hop movement.
The Super Sun album will be available for purchase on digital platforms and selected stores and partnering outfits worldwide. Fans can also follow Bez on twitter @bezidakula and facebook (Bez fan page) for details and information on promotional dates.’
