Afrobeats and hip-hop music hotshot, Dice Ailes is striding triumphantly into the hits list with the release of his single titled ‘Money Dance’ on 29 January.
He was signed to Sony Music West Africa in late 2020 and Money Dance’ is his first release via TMM Entertainment/Sony Music Entertainment West Africa. Dice Ailes can be credited for having pioneered a genre-bending swank sound that has resulted in a string of music hits becoming a mainstay with the industry’s new school today.
‘Money Dance’, a groovy musical that unveils in a flirty arrangement of basslines accompanied by vocal licks characterizing the singer’s defiance and smooth flow. The ‘Otedola (with the money)’ crooner’s dexterity shines throughout the very sonically pleasing number which has the potential to become an anthem. This premiere of the song further certifies his musical command and multi-versed ability at delivering melodious hits.
This year holds a lot of promise for Dice Ailes. A year ago, when his collaborative duet ‘Pim Pim’ with rapper Olamide was released, fueling speculations about his first ever album project. The single had attained viral status before the global pandemic struck and despite its drawbacks across sectors, he remained unfazed in his commitment to his creative responsibilities.
Late last year, Dice Ailes used his platform to amplify his message during the #Endsars nationwide protests in Nigeria against police brutality and bad governance. He maintained an active involvement, joining protests with the diaspora community and produced a tribute song ‘No One.’
With the world trying to attain some normalcy, Dice Ailes has also set his release plans back in motion setting the bar higher and hitting the right spot for music fans, something he is fast becoming a master at. It leaves much to be expected from his debut album whenever it is released.
