The 2011 Overall 4syte TV Best Video award winner, NaturalFaCe, is preparing to make a gallant comeback this month after he thrilled the industry with his ‘So High’ hit single months ago.
He is currently in the studio with Nigeria’s dancehall star General Pype recording what is being touted as a club banger.
General Pype is one of Nigeria’s reggae/dancehall icons. Born in Ogun State, he was raised in Lagos. He got introduced to music through church, and in 1998, while attending secondary school, he joined an acapella group which developed into the Triumphant Chorale Voices, one of Nigeria’s top classical groups.
Although he flourished with the choir, in 2005 he made the switch to dancehall and reggae music and picked the name of PYPE which stands for ‘Prolific Youth Positive Entertainer’.
Pype is known for doing numerous collaborations with fellow artistes in different genres.
At the 2009 MTVBase Music Awards, he performed his track ‘Teaser’ together with popular Nigerian rapper MI and Lira from South Africa. In 2010, ‘Mara hio hio’ was released, a track he recorded in Kenya with Sauti Sol and Sasha.
The upcoming single with NaturalFaCe is titled ‘Heart Breaker’ and is being produced by Kobolo Music. It will be released under Bullhaus Entertainment and Obalende Records.
“Ghanaian music enthusiasts should just watch out. It is another good song coming from NaturalFaCe and now teaming up with General Pype from Nigeria. I can only say they should watch out,” Bulldog, CEO of Bullhaus Entertainment, told NEWS-ONE.
NaturalFaCe is currently a household name in Ghana. At the last edition of the 4syte TV Music Video Awards, he surprisingly beat all the big names in Ghana’s music industry to emerge the overall Best Music Video award winner.
He won with the video of his hit song ‘So High.’
After ‘So High’ was released, it started gaining recognition on international platforms as it made it on a European chart on www.urbantop100.nl and ranked 90 ahead of international songs including superstar actress and musician Jennifer Lopez’s ‘Dance Again’ and Young Jeezy’s ‘Leave You Alone’.
