Newcomer rapper Yesi releases G.R.A (Gidi Reserved Area) off upcoming independent album Coronation. Born and raised in the historic Nigerian city of Ibadan, Yesi’s education took him to Orlando, Florida, and eventually New York City where he currently resides. Yesi seamlessly blends 3 languages- English, Yoruba and Pidgin – delivering impressive lyrics over heart thumping Hip-Hop beats.
On G.R.A, Yesi switches up the definition of the acronym from Government Reserved Area to Gidi Reserved Area. In words,
“Historically in Nigeria, Government Reserved Areas represent neighbourhoods reserved for the wealthy and connected. Gidi (Home) denotes the inclusivity that invites everyone to partake of that which is Yesi Music.”
Yesi’s debut album, “Coronation”, is due to be independently released May 25, 2010. Also upcoming is a video for G.R.A which has already being shot and will be released May 2010.[audio:GRA_GidiReservedArea.mp3]
