Thutmose Enlists Rema for New Single 'Love In the Morning'

The Nigerian artists link up for a standout track from Brooklyn-based rapper Thutmose's new EP.

Buzzing Brooklyn-based, Nigerian rapper Thutmose links up with none other than Rema on his new single, "Love In the Morning."

The song is a standout from Thutmose's new EP Don't Wake Me, which dropped on Tuesday as a folllow-up to his 2018 debut album Man on Fire. "Love In the Morning," is a mellow and melodic track that sees Thutmose and Rema singing their devotion to their love interests.

The London-shot video is in line with the song's romantic theme, and sees the two artists performing the track in various ambient settings. The video was directed by Thutmose along with Femi Ladi.


Lagos-born Thutmose is a rising rapper who caught traction following a well-received freestyle over Kendrick Lamar's 'Humble." Since then he's toured with Billie Eilish and will embark on his own European tour this November. You can check out the dates, here.

Michaela Coel Joins the 'Black Panther' Sequel Cast

The upcoming film, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is shaping up.

The sequel to the Oscar-winning Black Panther is only due to debut in July of 2022, but the production is well on its way.

The latest news out of the camp is that Michaela Coel, of I May Destroy You and Chewing Gum fame, has officially joined the cast of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Her character details are still under wraps but according to Variety, Coel has already joined director Ryan Coogler at Atlanta's Pinewood Studios, where production started in late June.

Coel joins original cast members Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong'o, Florence Kasumba, and Angela Bassett all reprising their roles. Following the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman, Marvel reportedly chose not to recast the role of T'Challa.

"It's clearly very emotional without Chad," Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige mentions. "But everyone is also very excited to bring the world of Wakanda back to the public and back to the fans. We're going to do it in a way that would make Chad proud."

Michaela Coel's highly-lauded 2020 series I May Destroy You — which she wrote, directed, produced and stared in — received four Emmy nominations.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is scheduled for wide release on July 8, 2022.
