This consortium of music uses catchy upbeat tunes to empower the audience and underline the importance of authenticity in the unoriginal era of the internet.
Abuja, FCT, Nigeria — July 11th, 2022- President Zik and BHP are a new up-and-coming band that believes in the sincere motivating power of music. The new artists produce narratives in music that are severely lacking in the music industry by socially grounding their songs. It is clear that this newer outlook on the industry is exponentially important to encourage diversity of perspectives in music and beyond.
On closer inspection, this collection of music by President Zik is a consortium of tunes that tries to inspire introspection and critical thinking within all individuals. An enduring common theme remains the narratives around independence and ownership of work which encourage new artists to pause their self-doubt in favor of their passion. It is for this reason that discovery of such music makes the listener feel euphoric. The eclectic artist is known for creating scintillating tunes that boast individualism as well as teamwork all in one- which inspire us all.
The band’s newest album was released on the 30th of April 2022 through BHP Entertainment. The guest features on the album include Hotyce, EESkay, Abyssinia, Zilla Oaks, Fem-IGH, and Suranu. The music in itself is very energetic, triumphant, and defiant. It is also very introspective and motivating as it covers the themes of hard work, authenticity, community, teamwork, and success. Motivation for this collection of music comes from the musician’s zeal to make it as well as externally from artists/entrepreneurs such as Jay Z, 50 Cent, Nas, Dr. Dre and contemporaries such as Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and J. Cole.
The goals and plans for President Zik and BHP are clear; they include worldwide recognition for their art, creating multiple avenues for music and visual production, global expansion of the business to other countries, establishing our festival as a global phenomenon, and creating a lasting legacy that will serve as a platform and springboard for generations to come. It is no surprise that we alongside this music are allured into the beauty of their talent.
