New album ‘Reves’ from rising Afrobeat star

smallIMG_1063Hailing from Nigeria, rapper-singer Skinn releases this beautifully moody afrobeat album.

“My LP was hugely influenced by my emotions at the time. While I was recording the album I had a lot of high and low points. My mood was really about the place I was in. Eventually, I found my rhythm and found the strength to show my creative side.”

The Cover Art titled ‘The dreams of peace’ was captured by Nigerian Photographer and Entrepreneur, Lubee Abubakar ; who produced past work for magazines as esteemed as VOGUE Italia. Working with Lubee on the Cover was special, Skinn explains; “she understood what had to be done and she did it. The Dream of Peace photo series can be viewed here – http://revesdepaix.tumblr.com/
