Watch the Premiere of the New Video For Bils' Afro-House Banger 'Loudah'

This Nigerian artist graces us with a new jam to keep on repeat and we give you the world premiere of its music video.

English rapper and producer, Giggz, collaborated with the Houston-based Nigerian artist, Bils, to create this hot new single.

"Loudah" is an infusion of fresh afrobeats, catchy bars, rhythmic drums and dance-inducing emissions.


Bils is gaining notoriety with every afro-house single he puts out. "Loudah" is his latest track that transmits the bumping energy of house music with an Afro twist.

The music video itself opens up with a Stranger Things-styled title screen, which is then followed by a choppy, grunge steampunk narrative compilation of images and fierce choreography that strangely fits the homage.

Having already reached over 20k streams on Spotify, and made #2 on BBC Radio 1Extra's top 5 list, "Loudah" is a perfect precursor for the upcoming summer EP from the duo of Giggz and Bils.

"Loudah" is available across digital stores worldwide including iTunes and Spotify.

View the exclusive video premiere for "Loudah" below.
