Check out upcoming Yoruba rapper, Base One. His flows kinda remind me of Da Grin in a way, and he should create a little buzz for himself in the near future. Surulere is a dope joint… I’m feeling it. You will to.
From the stables of the fast rising entertainment company, Wahala Media Ent., which has successfully launched off the amazing career of female songstress/perfomer, Nikki Laoye and is also presently leaving the sweet-smelling trail of great music in the form of the sugar-filled R&B/Reggae genius, SugarBoy A1, is now arising the third element to the amazing Wahala Trio mix,a new phenomenal artiste on our platform… Introducing BASE ONE.
“Am a MadMan ‘cause am lyrically insane” – BASE ONE. Base One’s personal introduction of his music persona says it all.
Quietly raising dust underground since 2006, Base One can simply be tagged “Naija’s HipHop’s best kept secret”.
With a style so intriguing, Base One is rapidly re-stirring the ripple effect caused by the phenomenal late Nigerian HipHop artiste, Da Grin, who he’s constantly compared to due to their similar musical delivery. Asserting that his style of music was acquired on and is for the “streets”, led to the creation of his own acronym, BASE ONE which stands for “Be A Street Entertainer” (BASE) and the number One representing his uniqueness.
His first hit single, “Surulere” (Produced by Gray Jon’z and Xblaze), was directed by upcoming video director, Seun Williams
The word is out….there’s a “MadMan” on the loose and his name is BASE ONE…[audio:http://www.jaguda.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Base-One-Surulere-Radio-edit.mp3|titles=Base One-Surulere (Radio edit)]
