Basketmouth ft. M.I Abaga – Horoscopes Album

Basketmouth Horoscopes Album, Released by Baron’sWorld and EMPIRE.

Bright Okpocha popularly known as Basketmouth releases his sophomore album titled HOROSCOPES, A follow up to his debut music project- Yabasi. This coming after the previously released singles; Your Body and Trouble.

In a career spanning more than two decades, Basketmouth has emerged as one of Nigeria’s most widely-respected comedians, actors and satirists, receiving awards and critical acclaim for his critiques on the intersection of humanity’s evolving landscape, Internet culture and Nigerian histrionics. All of this did not really prepare anyone for his surprise pivot to music-making on 2020’s Yabasi, a left-field body of work that effervescently melded Basketmouth’s adolescent love for hip-hop with the frothing sound of highlife, a storied genre rooted in the Igbo culture of Basketmouth’s Eastern Nigerian heritage.

For his sophomore album, Horoscopes, Basketmouth choose to continue his partnership with producer Duktor Sett, for a body of work that lingers in the melancholic at times, but never loses the artist’s characteristic humour.

Horoscopes Album featuring Johnny Drille, Simi, Buju, Blaqbonez, Ruggedman, Magnito, Dremo, Peruzzi, 2Baba, Wande Coal, Oxlade, Efya, The Cavemen and more. See Tracklist below;

Complete with contributions from legendary wordsmith M.I Abaga, rising star Buju, and Ghanaian contemporary bards, Efya and Kwabena KwabenaHoroscopes finds ways to humanise universal emotions like love, struggle, betrayal and wanderlust while giving life to new mediums of expressions within the musical world that Basketmouth has created.
