Midas the Jagaban has been ruling the airwaves since 2020 with her anonymous persona and harmonious vocals. Repping South London’s Lambeth district, she made her debut in the summer of 2020, releasing the infectious anthem, “Come We Bill Ehh,” which instantly endeared her to fans. Since then, she’s only continued to double down on efforts to showcase her rapid-fire skills.

Now, Midas the Jagaban has released her first single of the year, sharing the new track and video on the celebrated 420, a special day for cannabis lovers. To Midas The Jagaban, the 420 experience needed to be felt and celebrated in a meaningful way. Hence the release of the Liya-assisted new number titledΒ “420,” which finds both artists paying homage to marijuana and having a good time, as they chant lyrics such as “whatever I do, I do it better when I smoke my marijuana.”

The song’s visual storytelling is characterised by blunts, lighters and a lot of hotboxing as it emphasises the song’s infectious lyrics about getting high and letting go of one’s worries.Β The trippy visuals take viewers to a futuristic carefree environment where they are safe to let go of their inhibitions.

While both artists appear to just be having a good time, “420,” breaks the norm that cannabis is only used by men, boldly opposing the pure and naive image that’s often forced on African women by society’s conservative ideals. Midas the Jagaban seals her status not only as a prolific artist but, one also capable of shape-shifting and melding different genres and sounds to her will.

So roll one up, relax and and get a first look at “420,” exclusively on the NATIVE.
