You're Going To Have Aye Nizzy's 'Good For Me' On Repeat

We premiere the new music video from the UK MC's upcoming The Summer of '94 EP.

Aye Nizzy got people in the UK talking with his latest drop "Ten Ten," which was on rotation at the BBC Radio 1 Xtra.

The UK MC's now coming through with the new single and music video for "Good For Me," an addictive new jam which is set to feature in his upcoming The Summer of '94 EP, due June 9.

The new single, which was produced by Jay Ramsay, showcases Aye Nizzy's move from his grime beginnings to his more recent afro bashment-meets-pop explorations.


"Good For Me is when Jamaica & Africa meet the Orient half way," Aye Nizzy explains to OkayAfrica.

"The inspiration behind the song was depicting a classic relationship scenario where a male and female are madly in love [and] outside interference causes doubt but in the end true love prevails. The sound is heavily influenced by Jamaican & African music with a sprinkle of the orient. The oriental flutes emphasise this, as well as the video setting."

Check out the music video for "Good For Me" below.

How Technology Is Playing a Crucial Role in the #EndSARS Protests

It has been more than a week since young people in Nigeria took to the streets to demand that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, infamously known as SARS, be scrapped for good. Created in 1992, this police unit was originally set up to beat back armed robbery, the use of firearms and rising cases of kidnappings that grew in the late eighties. However, the unit went rogue, becoming more notorious for its savagery than actual crime-fighting. With a rap sheet ranging from profiling, harassment and assault to, in more extreme cases, slaughtering innocent citizens, these quasi-officers have unleashed terror on the nation for more than two decades.

Their victims are predominantly young Nigerians profiled on appearance—whether they drive exotic vehicles, use the latest gadgets, have their hair dyed or locked, or have piercings. In some cases, working in tech often gets conflated with financial fraud. For people who don't meet the absurd criteria, the mood of the officer can often become the difference between life and death.
