Listen to ‘Iced Out’ by Da L.E.S, AKA and Emtee

Da L.E.S, AKA and Emtee connect on North God's new single.

Da L.E.S enlists the services of AKA and Emtee in his latest single. The single, which is titled "Iced Out," sees the three superstars talking about their jewelry and money, with L.E.S crooning, "Balenciagas on my feet, you know I'm getting mine/ 'Cause you know my jewelry colder than the winter time."


The song is highly likely to grown on you after a few listens, but compared to similar collaborations by L.E.S and AKA, it lacks the x-factor that made songs such as "Heaven" and "Real Stuff" the classics they are.

Either way, it's great hearing Emtee collaborating more with artists outside of Ambitiouz Entertainment and ATM, and hearing these three artists on one song is a pleasure.

These Women Are Breaking Boundaries In Nigeria's Creative Spaces

We speak to five women about their work and contributions to Nigerian society & creative spaces, despite their patriarchal nature.

"African women in general need to know that it's ok for them to be the way they are–to see the way they are as a strength, and to be liberated from fear and from silence" —Wangarĩ Muta Maathai

These words prompt one to think about how terrible a job the media does in sharing the stories of African women. As journalists, our work is based on telling African stories, and the gap of female stories is a very apparent one that needs filling. It's important to have an environment that appreciates fearless and unapologetic women chasing their dreams and breaking the boundaries before them.

We caught up with Toketemu Ohwovoriole, a multimedia storyteller & journalist; Solis, a singer, songwriter, poet, & muse; Lauretta Yemoja, a beauty artist and rapper/singer; Tiwa Pearl, a dancer and creative; and Oyinkansola Dada, an art curator and founder of art gallery Polartics, to talk about their careers.
