The basic idea behind Urban Lifestyle Fest is to create a platform for networking within the emerging music industry and Hip Hop culture in the northern region of Nigeria. The festival provides a 3-way point of contact involving the artist, the audience and the business reps (investors, record companies, management agencies and major influencers of the Hip Hop culture).
The artists get to have an ample amount of time to intimately engage their fans and put up a show that can convince potential listeners to subscribe and investors or businesses to acknowledge or make a move in their direction. About 20 artists will be gracing our stage this year with the best of Hip Hop music in Nigeria.
The prolific group CANDY MUSIC, a group of 6 talented, well-nurtured, and versatile acts has finally put out the project we’ve all been waiting for. The Dawg House EP. A name which was coined from a then Dog House which they converted to a Musical Studio way back 2009. According to them that was how the journey started.
Some months back the group announced the project, and was scheduled to drop 5th November 2017. And kept to their promise. The EP comprises of 13 songs, a skit and a video. The Project witnessed the professional skills of six sound engineers, which includes in-house ‘Phlexzywest’ and ‘Samjey’, ‘Effiko’, ‘Maestro’, ‘Stikx&Drums’ and ‘Ace Sounds’. The EP also featured six Non-Candy Music acts (‘A’ffox’, ‘Kevinword$’, ‘Mulla Sounds’, ‘P-Son’, ‘President Zik’ and a comedian ‘Laff Product’).
Having listened to this EP, we can assure you that this is a spectacular and remarkable body of work. Don’t miss out. All tracks are sure worth your listening time. Download and Enjoy!
