Blast champ steps in with Afro Hip Pop
Blast Champ is a new kid on the block, but strong enough to compete favourably with others in the Afro-pop genre of the Nigerian music industry. Having graduated from the University of Benin in 2013 with a degree in Economics, Blast Champ abandoned his degree and focused on music.
BC as he is fondly called by fans, the Afro pop singer has been able to blend the Igbo flavour of highlife with the contemporary hip hop music. His first single Boo Boo Me was released in 2014 and was produced by Nedz Beats. The release of his second single Nwayor shows BC has come to stamp his feet in the sand of time in the music industry. BC is a singer, rapper and a songwriter and he is working with a couple of music producers to bring out the best music.
Interestingly, like Psquare, he also has his twin brother with him in his music sojourn; but unlike the singing twin brothers, Psquare, Blast Champ sings while his twin brother produces most his songs under the name Nedz Beats.
At the heat of the fight in the Psquare music empire, BC once said, “he knew the fight was not going to last long because the brothers are twins.” He said he believed that the brothers would soon come to terms because they shared the same womb as twins. Just like he had predicted that the Psquare twins would apologise to their fans and came back together as a group.
When asked if he had learnt any lesson from the twin brothers’ fight, as he is working with his twin brother, BC, said, “yes and that it is more secure working with a brother you shared the same passion with and that despite the crisis rocking the Psquare brothers, he has no regret working with his twin brother.”
BC was born Anigala Chuka on May 30, 1991 in Delta State. The singer and songwriter is signed to Meshtro Entertainment. BC has always had passion for music because of the background in which he was brought up and then he discovered his talent in music at a tender age. BC played the flute in primary school and was a member of his secondary choir. He performed at various school events as a student of University of Benin, Edo State.
BC is working on a new single that will help launch him into the big league of artistes in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
Nwayor (it easy) is a love story between a bar attendant and a big girl, who went to the bar to relax. The attendant approached her, but she turned him down. He then went hallucinating having big money and the babe.
Drawing inspirations from things happening around him and the society at large, Blast Champ for now is concentrating on dropping singles. He is working to drop an album later in the year.
His latest single Nwayor is a fusion of Afro hip hop and the video is on Youtube.
