Although whispers have been brewing among industry players for a while, Money Empire is proud to officially announce the Nobles as the newest member of their family, which includes Omid Wisdom and Rash K.
Pretty Bajuda is produced by Phantom, a top international producer from Nigeria who was flown into The Gambia by Money Empire to record the Nobles, according to the Money Empire manager Olimatou Taal.
Phantom has worked with the biggest in Afro Beat such as Burner Boy and produced his hit tune Ye. He also produced Wiz Kid’s Master Groove and won Producer of the Year at this year’s Sound City MVP Awards in Lagos. The Afro-beat connoisseur is sure to catapult a new sound for Nobles, which was evident in the studio as the artists recorded new hits.
This new sensational ballad for all the “Pretty Bajudas” or simply put “Pretty Women” reinforces their fortitude for the kind of music that melts the hearts of the women. This hit song is guaranteed to have all the ladies and gentlemen singing along everywhere. As a mixed genre male band, Nobles has the potential to crossover in markets in Africa, Europe, U.S. and the rest of the world.
According to the music expert manager, their sound is Afro pop mixed with Afro beats, mbalax, alternative hip-hop and dancehall fusion. “This gives them a uniqueness that has taken the Gambian music by storm and has demand throughout the Gambia and West Africa. They pride themselves of having a quality performance combined with their talent, trendy dance moves, coordinated stylish fashions, and dynamic stage presence.
