Industry News: B.O.U.Q.U.I “Celebrates” in Historic Collaboration with American Hip-hop Artist DA T.R.U.T.H! (Audio) -@datruthonduty


Bouqui Collaborates with DA TruthNow this is one dope collaboration. I’ve been listening to DA Truth for aeons From when he was a part of the Cross Movement and later when he went solo and released his album DA TRUTH. Nice! I would have loved to see diversity in the beat and sound. We are so used to it in the Nigerian/African circles but it is much like the African ankara fabric. It is only now really gaining entrance into the US market when many Africans are so done with it. . .

Truth, you could have come a lot stronger and harder on this. A bit disappointed. Not exactly the Truth I am used to.

Now folks, talk about true penetration into the US music market. African hip-hop gospel recording artists like Bouqui may make more inroads than their circular counterparts if they collaborate with more American gospel hip-hop artists. Can y’all see a dope with the likes of Lecrae? Wild!


Bouqui and Da Truth

See how hard Da Truth typically goes in on the beat and delivery

Statement from Bouqui’s camp:

“Yes 2013!! The mould is broken….for the very first time in the history of Christian contemporary hip hop music in Nigeria and Africa, here comes the biggest International collaboration of all time. With a song titled “CELEBRATE”, the multiple award winning Nigeria rap queen “B.O.U.Q.U.I” features the phenomenal 3 time STELLAR award winner, 2 time GRAMMY and DOVE Nominee “DA T.R.U.T.H” Apparently this is surely another set piece of takeover for Bukola Folayan popularly known as BOUQUI! The multi talented rap artiste who has held firmly to the female rap crown for years has just raised the bar once again with her new single titled Celebrate.

B.O.U.Q.U.I, having dropped couple of singles from her forthcoming double CD album “Marks Of a General & Eve Of Independence” is on the verge of creating another world record as the first female gospel rapper to release 4 albums and of course a double CD album, remarkable!!!

The song CELEBRATE is produced by VC PEREZ and mixed by Mix Master J with additional vocals from Studio and C Blaze.

DA T.R.U.T.H born Emmanuel Lee Lambert jr is set to drop his fifth studio album on the 29th of January 2013 titled LOVE HOPE WAR.Watch out as BOUQUI hosts the Love Hope War tour concert in Lagos featuring DA TRUTH and the best of nigerian gospel community come February 8, 2013.
