If you have an extensive 10 year knowledge of Nigerian hip-hop, you will be well familiar with the Kalifate which consists of A9mus, Dasuki and Psalmurai. Their JIHAD Mixtape remains a classic and a defining point for underground Hip-hop in Nigeria. They have been sort of quiet, but have all dropped individual proojects, the most recent being The BIAFRA Mixtape by Dasuki. They however decided to rebrand themselves as THE BRAND and their first single under that banner drops titled Chibok Girl, and it is dedicated to the memory of the Girls who have been missing for 600 days after they were kidnapped by terrorist group Boko Haram, It’s pure rap music, check it out below.
According to The Brand, “A Chibok Girl is not just one of the many females taken on that fateful day, but any girl who is forced to live life under oppression just because she’s female.”
