Str8buttah founder Teck-Zilla shares new song ‘Victory’

Hip Hop has enjoyed a great year in Nigeria thus far with many rappers and producers releasing great works –whether song, EP or album.

The veteran producer Teck-Zilla has been on a solid run too. The Str8buttah convener in 2019 collaborated extensively with iLLBliss (IllyZilla) while engaged in some personal projects. This year, he’s stretched his reach even further, working with young cats like Vader The Wildcard and Samvsthekids.

His latest song, “Victory,” is an international effort which pools top lyrical talent from Nigeria (Phlow), United States of America (Shhabbaam Sahdeeq and Phoenyx) and Canada (Eternia).

It was spiritual and I loved it.”

The music of Crayon is very communal. It’s the sound of people roaring an upbeat chorus or moving to the similarly paced beat. When the artist in 2019 signed to Don Jazzy’s record imprint which has housed Afro Pop icons like Tiwa Savage and Dr. Sid, it sparked celebration within the Lagos … Read the rest
