Chika ‘Give It to Dem Bad’
This week’s Local Eye’s video is Chika ‘Give It to Dem Bad’ which is taken from her first EP. The project is a unique blend of Rnb and Afrobeat and will be released in July.
The project reflects the space of mind the singer was in before she says she “woke the f*** up” (her words exactly). You really get a sense of the creative mind of the artist as the listener is taken through a 5 track ‘dip and dive’ of a ride.
Born in Lagos, Nigeria at age 10 Chika, her mother and siblings left Nigeria to join their dad in Auckland New Zealand. Still based in Auckland and very much a kiwi now Chika still feels a strong connection to Africa this is very evident in the singer’s style.
