Bez 'My Baby'

Nigeria's prince of soulful pop Bez returns with 'My Baby,' the first single off his forthcoming sophomore effort.

It's been a minute since we've heard from Nigerian prince of soulful pop Bez. The Jos-born crooner– who goes down in the OKA history books along with Brooklyn rapper Sene as our very first Player Xchange alum– returns with a new single from his forthcoming sophomore effort.
