SO follows up "What's Your Name?" Afropop hit

God-Glorifying Afropop

NIGERIAN rapper artist SO, who had a huge Afropop hit in 2017 with "What's Your Name?" (hitting over half a million streams on Spotify and being played on radio all over the world), is back with another single, produced by GP, "Talk In Code". Said SO, "'Talk In Code' is for my married couples and people dating. 'Talk In Code' simply means 'Let's talk in a way that only we can understand. There are too many people in our business and too many people who want to gossip and use our lives against us, so let's do our own thing.'" Talking about the rise in popularity of Afropop, SO said, "Being African was cool long before Wakanda and Black Panther. Even though Afropop is one of the fastest growing genres around the world, 'What's Your Name' was one of my biggest songs because it reached a lot of people who are underrepresented. This time, I wanted to create another song with that sound, but also incorporate different languages and dialects such as Yoruba, Twi, Patois. I am excited about creating music for that specific context that is wholesome, God-glorifying, and sounds good." CR
