Throwback: Zule Zoo – Kerewa

image

I was listening to Yemi Alade’s Tangerine and after
hearing her holler Kerewa wa a few times, I thought
to myself… why don’t we bring these n****s in a
throwback.
The endearing thing about this Kerewa song, would
be it’s undulating beats and sordid lyrics that didn’t
spare them a ban from the NBC when it’s gavel fell
hard in verdict. Regardless, the video tells a sinuous
story laid out in the lyrics while showing their
traditional music showmanship in a dance craft as
well as the culture of their local roots (Tiv, Benue
State Nigeria).
Micheal Aboh and Al-Hassan Ibrahim (the Zule Zoo
brothers) have long shelved their music aspirations
and moved on to other events that offer them
human satisfaction.
Reboot yourself and enjoy this one!
