Krizbeatz returns with a brand new collaborative effort titled “Time & Place” featuring Terri and Victony.
One year ago, Krizbeatz assembled some of Africa’s finest musicians for a showcase on the suitably titled African Time.
Whether creating with Teni, Mr. Eazi, or Vanessa Mdee, the super-producer drew on influences from several places on the continent to paint a mosaic of the African experience in its totality; capturing the depth and breadth of culture from his home country onward.
The project arrived at a time when unity on the continent was at its most needed, solidifying Krizbeatz musical credentials.
After keeping a low profile for the most part of 2021, Krizbeatz has returned with a new song.
His latest offering, “Time & Place,” is a tender collaboration between singers, Terri and Victony. A pithy ballad at its core, “Time & Place” reflects on the actions love can inspire from people with Terri leading with a tender verse about always being there for a love interest. After a brief interlude, Victony adds a melodic dimension to the song and rounds it up.
Gliding over a minimalist instrumental, all singers fit within each other’s soundscape, perfecting a flickering aesthetic that compliments the song’s thematic focus.

Big Brother Naija #ShineYaEye housemate, Saga, has said that he wasn’t happy about the return of his love interest, Nini because he had to display his emotions for just a prank.
He said this on Thursday 23rd, as he discussed Nini’s disappearance and return with Pere.
Saga said, “I’m happy to see her but I’m still angry. I’m not happy because I even felt genuine emotions, I can’t lie.
“I’m not happy that I had to just display such emotions on TV like that, for nothing.
“That’s why I just shut up my mouth. I didn’t want to talk too much.
“If you notice, I just didn’t want to talk too much about it because I just know that it was just a game. I’m just waiting for it to end.”
Pere replied saying, “At some point, I knew it was a prank not until Whitemoney started talking about fake housemates, I bought it”
Saga then added, “If Nini was a fake housemate, I would have enrolled in a psychiatric hospital. Somebody I’ve been talking to 24/7 and for 8 weeks, I won’t know that person is fake? I didn’t even buy that one for one second.
“So she has been playing me from the very beginning? Because I’m now a fool, I don’t have sense?”
Since Nini’s return, Saga has been showcasing mixed feelings. However, he worked out well during the session, an action he failed to do on Wednesday due to her disappearance.
