Hailing from Nigeria, globetrotter and rising wordsmith Fasina is well versed in the art of sonically storming releases. Armed with a distinct all-round versatility, if he were to put ‘Alchemist’ at the top of his resumé, nobody could question it. With a string of releases like ‘MIXED SIGNALS’ and ‘SPLIT’ firmly putting him on the map and before a well-versed group of afro genre lovers, Fasina now delivers a new single ‘Barbie’, effortlessly bridging the gap between afrobeats and pop - while paying homage to the recent blockbuster hit and women around the world.

Sharing a note about his latest delivery, Fasina added cooly:

“Babygirl looking like a Barbie!”

Bursting onto the scene in 2016 and following the development of an uplifting catalogue of sonic goodness very much in line with the trends of current afro-pop soundscapes, Fasina has stirred up some magic yet again. By seamlessly integrating elements of afro genres and adding euphonious echoes of pop fusion tones, this new offering lends itself to a unified summer experience as the warmer season continues.

Riding the impactful wave of his previous releases, Fasina’s passion only piques more as he strikes the perfect balance of captivating cadence and recite-worthy hooks resulting in a cleverly complex track in wonderfully simple clothing. As Fasina continues to interlink classic, evergreen afro styles with pleasing, unexpected flips, his signature unruffled and unhurried delivery is one that resonates with every afro-pop lover.

Packing a punch with his playful, vibrant and energetic style, Fasina’s latest energetic, vibrant stormer sees stacked synths and unhurried drum patterns bloom into a bombastic melodic passage as Fasina’s unruffled, hypnotic vocal adds the finishing touches to the offering. A certified lover boy track sure to prickle the ears of many and take up residence in the libraries of top DJs this summer, this isn’t one you’ll want to miss.
