UK Afrobeat star StunnahGee has teamed with Nigeria’s King of R&B Kymo Kingin for a new breast cancer awareness EP, entitled Nipples.
Fusing R&B, afrobeats, pop and trap, the pair has come up with a genre-crossing record, produced by T-Izze, and with a powerful purpose.
Lead single I Need An Answer is an R&B ballad, led by delicate piano and emotive vocals. Watch the video here:
StunnahGee’s aunt has had several breast cancer scares in the past and his uncle passed away from pancreatic cancer, so raising awareness for any kind of cancer is something that’s close to his heart.
As to the provocative EP title, StunnahGee and Kymo are at one:
“Just so you can be curious enough to ask that question,” comes the answer.
The vid for I Need An Answer, filmed using a drone, exhibits some stunning choreography performed on the shore of a beach, accompanied by thought provoking images of sufferers of breast cancer. 10% of the Nipples EP sales revenue will be donated to breast cancer patients unable to afford treatments and organizations trying to find a cure for the disease.
During his career, StunnahGee has performed with the likes of Wande Coal, Patoranking and Kiss Daniels, and has been a nominee for the MOBO awards and African Pride’s artist of the year 2016, winning a BEFFTA in 2016 too. For his part, Kymo was nominated for the prestigious Channel O awards in Africa, performing in front of a huge crowd.
