Birmingham-based Nigerian Afropop prodigy DKIZZ is back with a new banger called “My Lady,” following the success of his first hit “Show Me.” The song has DKIZZ’s characteristic Afrobeats sensibility, with amapiano-tinged beats, rich percussion arrangements, and organic piano chords. His silky voice and catchy melodies are what really set this song apart.
DKIZZ has also released a music video for “My Lady” which is as lovely as the single itself. The video was filmed in vibrant settings, giving viewers a sense of the artist’s world and highlighting his charisma and star power.
But “My Lady” is more than just an upbeat tune with a catchy beat. DKIZZ says the song was inspired by the fallout from a bad “situationship,” or romantic relationship. He was moved by the pain he was feeling to make something soulful that could nevertheless be played at a nightclub. And if the track’s popularity on TikTok is any indication, he has indeed succeeded.
DKIZZ, originally from Port Harcourt but currently residing in Birmingham and London, is rapidly becoming a major player in the afropop industry. It’s no surprise that artists like Burna Boy and Mr. Eazi are making comparisons to his emotive poetry, compelling musicianship, and knack for crafting hit songs.
DKIZZ’s first EP Sabi Boy, featuring the single “My Lady,” will be released this summer on Be83 Music. If his new song is any indication of his abilities, he has the potential to take his career to new heights.
