If you are just joining me for the first time, welcome. For those who have been following my work for a long time i.e. since the early 2000 onwards, you know I am a big fan of emerging talent whether in fashion, music or film, both Africans and non-Africans. I’ve introduced, practically on all my platforms, among other things, emerging talent X.O Senavoe. I am glad to see his growth and continue to hope only for great things for him.
X.O Senavoe drops his latest single produced by my fraternity brother Kid Konnect titled ‘Say it Again.’ I am a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority. I had no idea Kid Konnect was my fraternity brother and member of Phi Beta Sigma, until much later. But, I should have known because the “blue and white family” (our colors) are real people who take chances on others when no one will. Kid Konnect has been quite instrumental in the career of X.O Senavoe, from day one, among other emerging acts. So, it is nice to see the duo team up for S.O Xenavoe’s latest single ‘Say it Again.’
In the spirit of giving visibility to emerging artists consistent with my ethos, what I have decided to do, strictly on this platform, is give a one week spotlight on the right side bar of AML website to an artist I believe is talented and worth checking out. Some of these artists I will feature may or may not have received much media/public attention. But either way, once you see them on AML like that, y’all know they are the “bidness” and you should sit up and pay attention. 🙂 I am particularly focused on emerging artists. So, hit me up at Africamusiclaw strictly with great music.
Please don’t expect me to respond. My plate is very full. But, if I am feeling your work, you will see it on the right side bar for one week. I don’t have a timeline either. So please don’t bombard me with emails, it will only irritate me.
Also, interested artists, you MUST provide clean/radio versions of the Mp3s you want me to check out to even be considered on my sidebar. This is basic industry standard and every artist should be doing this at this point when you pitch your songs to media.
Check out X.O Senavoe’s work. I’m kicking my one week AML Artist spotlight with X.O Senavoe’s music and ad campaign banner.

“Serving as the lead single to the forthcoming XPoint0 E.P from fast-rising Hip-Hop star X.O Senavoe, this “Say It Again” opus – filled with sublime live drums and grandiose synth patterns, produced by Kid Konnect – is exactly what fans and critics alike have been waiting for from Senavoe as he excellently highlights his immense lyrical prowess and captivates the listener with his catchy delivery and flow over the colossal sound.
Taking the “when your chic blowing you kisses, she’s really saying my name”, line from one of his breakout tracks – 2010’s “Victory”, transforming it into the hook of the brand new “Say It Again” and surrounding that hook with three heavy-laden verses of quotable after quotable after quotable, X.O Senavoe shows us exactly why he is considered as a tour de force among African Hip-Hop spheres and with the XPoint0 E.P firmly on the way, Senavoe is poised to turn the whole game on its head.”
