Blaqbonez debuts his Mr. Boombastic persona on new single, “Shut Up”

A potential lead single for the anticipated 'BRIA(Best Rapper in Africa)' project

Since emerging into the mainstream with his ‘Bad Boy Blaq’ tape, Blaqbonez has retained a strong grip on the attention of Nigerian music lovers with his quirky personality, inciting a rap beef with his Best-Rapper-In-Africa campaign, featuring on the Martell Cypher and his charismatic Mr Boombastic alter-ego on social media. He continues to engage his enthusiastic fanbase with a new single, “Shut Up”, his first song as his Mr Boombastic persona.

Opening with a radio announcer introduction in patois, Mr Boombastic is first introduced as an artist with a Jamaican slur but the antagonistic lyrics later reveal him to be a ruffian who isn’t to be messed with. It’s a persona that gives his cocky bars more heft as he brags about his wealth and talent over the catchy beat Tempoe produces. With the boastful direction, “Shut Up” could be the lead single for the anticipated ‘BRIA(Best Rapper in Africa)’ project expected to be released sometime soon.
