As rising Nigerian singer TI Blaze prepares to drop his debut project, he teams up with fellow Nigerian rapper Olamide for "Sometimes Remix." The mid-tempo track is a deep dive into the trials and tribulations of young black men in the most populous country in Africa and sees TI Blaze in a reflective mood. He delivers his verses in pidgin English and armed with his laidback vocal tone, he pours his all on wax. He is followed by Olamide's introspective bars which use lyrics from Islamic prayers, Yoruba adages and street-savvy confidence.
The visual is expressive and makes use of engaging set pieces, unique storyboarding, and performance shots that show both artists in the respective space. From the gritty urban streets of Lagos to the plush lit offices and saloon where we see TI showing his hair designing skills, the visual capture different sides to the singer. "Sometimes Remix" is taken from his forthcoming debut EP The Fresh Prince of Lagos. The 6-track EP is an anecdote to his fans as he tells his story of hope and hustle inspired by his own life.
