Listen to Terry Apala’s new single, “Apala Wifi”

Focusing on the psychedelic sound of his Yoruba heritage

Year in and year out, Hip-hop in Nigerian has remained consistent in its appreciation of indigenously fueled expressions. Though Yoruba has been a staple in Hip-hop conversations from DaGrin down to Zlatan, no other rapper has matched Terry Apala’s dedication to carving a specifically Yoruba niche as his discography finds him funnelling trap sounds through his Apala cadence. His latest single, “Apala Wifi” however ditches all foreign influences to focus on the psychedelic sound of his Yoruba heritage.

OYW Beatz produces the beat for “Apala Wifi” with native sounding drums and shakes that set a folky ambience for Terry Apala’s proverbial bars. But given the contemporary themes like Skiibii’s “Dats How Star Do” that he discusses, the song plays out like a bear-parlour conversation and establishes Terry Apala’s authentic sound.
