Ice Prince Drops The Visuals For 'Mutumina'

Watch Nigerian star and Chocolate City Ice Prince's snow-filled visuals for "Mutumina," off his recent Trash Can EP.


Fresh off his performance and panel appearance at our SXSW Sounds From Africa events, Nigerian star Ice Prince drops the music video for "Mutumina." The single comes from the Chocolate City Music signee's recent 6-track Trash Can EP, a collection of songs that didn't make it onto his album. The visuals for "Mutumina" juggle snow-filled winter scenes, static-filled performances and all-around slow-motion dancing backed by Ice Prince's rhymes and an addictive TMXO beat. If you missed them, check out our SXSWest Africa portraits of Ice Prince, Sarkodie, R2Bees, Samini and more in Austin, Texas last week. Also, revisit Ice Prince's recent collaboration with Phyno and Olamide on "Get Some Money." Watch the music video for "Mutumina" and stream the Trash Can EP below.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
