Nolly is a member of the gospel hip-hop group, CIA. This is another solo effort by him, and this track was produced by First Degree.
Oh, yes, in case you wondered, Ndewo means "Good Day." It's not rocket science. I just saw it on the cover art. *wink* It pays to look twice!
Here's the press release:
Coming off the burners right after his hit single 'Jesus N'asu Igbo,' which topped the Praiseworld Radio Music charts, enjoying airplay in radio stations both in Nigeria and other African countries like Ghana and Zambia, talented rapper NOLLY, drops another banger. This one is titled 'Ndewo' which means 'Greetings' in Igbo language.
The song is a hip hop track, with a heavy beat that is sure to have heads bumping, and the production credit goes to Cedar (a.k.a First Degree). With the distinctive style he has become known for, Nolly mixes high-end metaphors and punchlines, with Igbo phrases to deliver a flavour that is totally his own. The song is a greeting to GOD, showing appreciation for the favour so far in his journey. Mixed and mastered by Okey Sokay.
