Mimi’bram is here to raise the roof-top on African hiphop gospel music. She sings with flair, performs with passion, she’s dramatic and in her debut single, you can tell she means business. Listening to ‘Ukanna Un Stop’, you can immediately gather that this artist is bold, furious and graceful.
The Afro-pop track will drop on Tuesday May 17 and marks her unveiling on a busy Nigerian music landscape. But it already holds much promise, thanks to years of passionate live performance and thanks to unpredictable music production by the maestro King Baseda.
Music lovers can look forward to sure fire grooving; while the gospel is not concealed as would have been feared for such heavily rhythmic piece. There is everything in this one: the music is contemporary; the lyrics are Rhema. Neither DJ nor Pastor will be disappointed by this track.
“Ukanna Un Stop” is Ibibio for ‘You cannot stop me’. For a debutant, that must be a stern announcement. And she’s chosen to make the announcement with music that’s challenging industry standards.
My favorite experience with the song is where she does features female rapper Greeny Blossom, who then takes the listener by surprise; she raps scriptures in Annang.
According to her management, the Akwa Ibom born Mimi'Bram began expressing passion for music at a very tender age, joining her local church Choir at God’s Heritage Global mission when other choristers would tower above her. A 400 level student of Public Health at the University of Calabar, she considers music a perfect way to share the light of Scriptures with her world, targeting her music at the edification of the body of Christ.
“Ukanna Un Stop was born out of a revelation I caught in a Holy Ghost powered church service”, she says of her debut single. It will keep you on your toes and her management believes it will do more than that.
“You need to listen to this song every time you’re being confronted by obstacles and the spirit of the song will break the barriers for you”.
That’s more than a combination of lyrics and rhythm; there certainly is Spirit in it. Keep a date and Check it out as it drops on Tuesday May 17.
