[MUSIC] RUNTOWN FT FEKKY – UNLEASH
Nigerian Soundgod RunTown teams up with Fekky for brand new single ‘Unleash’.
Hitting over half a million views in just 24 hours of the video being released online, the record is the first release from the chart-topping star in 2018. Sonically down tempo and soulful, the track is driven by RunTown’s timeless standout sound that has made him one of Africa’s biggest musical exports in recent years. Built on percussion and pronunciation, ‘Unleash’ has the sound of Africa at its heart with an irresistible pop bounce running alongside it, courtesy of frequent collaborator and producer Del B. The addition of UK rapper Fekky adds yet another layer to the single, and whilst usually known for his gritty and fiercer bars and delivery, his softer sound resonates for this latest collaboration as he flirts with melodies and singing alongside his laidback rap.
Alongside his own releases, he has been awarded with‘Artist of the Year’ at the Vodaphone Ghana Awards plus the Nigerian Entertainment Award. His writing skills have penned hits for Iyaz and Sean Kingston care of production powerhouse Beluga Heights, plus he has performed with the likes of Pitbull and Lil Jon. His multitude of talents and his success have given the star a platform to use his music to give back to his homeland. Launching the We Are New Africa Foundation alongside his team to send underprivileged African youth to school and encourage their dreams, as well as creating his own label Soundgod Music Group are all primed to make a big impact in entertainment, culture and beyond.
