EP: Teeklef – AfroPop

Nigeria-raised, Indianapolis-based R&B artist Teeklef releases the AfroPop EP . Following Singles ‘Calling’ and ‘Want It’, the singer/producer has been on a world tour promoting his newest project. Entitled AfroPop, the EP embraces the elements of Afrobeat and pop music that have influenced Teeklef’s process.

In 2018, following a long-awaited return trip to his birthplace of Lagos, Nigeria, Teeklef returned to the studio energized. He began writing and recording what would be the beginning of a series of EPs, which reflect the diversity of cultures that make up Teeklef as a musician and as a human. ‘Calling’, a song that flows from memories of driving the streets of Lagos at night, starts the EP. ‘Feel Like’ expresses his

relationship with the hometown he has been away from for years. ‘Want It’, the 3rd single, brings a turn in the artist’s attitude, and ‘I’m Ready’ brings us to a catharsis— Teeklef is embracing both his homes, Africa and America, and his multiple musical influences. Sonically, it merges the sounds of Afrobeat and Hip-hop, and lyrically it flips between Pidgin, Igbo, Yoruba and English. A second chapter, AfroSoul, is planned for later this year.
