Strictly Sowa wants you to ‘Parry on Da Block’

Kimon, let's parry on da weekend

As afro-trap gains mainstream attention, new strains of the sub-genre emerge influenced by the colloquial culture of the artists who dabble in them. The quality of the music starts to homogenize and the proficiency of the artists who make this music stabilizes. Afro-trap is finally spawning in cities other than Lagos and we’re here for it.

Abuja based rapper and The Capital Movement signee Strictly Sowa just dropped his new joint ‘Parry on Da Block’. With stellar production chops from OelA and pretty interesting flow, Sowa makes a play for the Afro-trap market popularized by artists like Maleek Berry, Mayorkun and Terry Apala. The synth percussions and the sung-rap drone in which he delivers a braggy sixteen bars. There is the unmistakable influence of Drake but none of the production heavy taint that defines music from Lagos artists. Definitely the kind of music for a late night chill sesh.
