Nigerian MC Poe enters a 'New Era' with his solo effort and video shot by Shakes.
<p>Nigeria's <strong><a href="https://twitter.com/LadiPoe" target="_blank">Poe</a></strong> first caught our attention when he played the assist with a verse on <strong>SDC's</strong> "Feel Alright" (one of our <a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/2013/12/23/nigerian-songs-2013-best-top-list/" target="_blank">Top Tracks of 2013</a>). Immediately setting himself apart with a chill cadence and impressive wordplay, Poe has been riding solo as of late, taking the glory for himself with "New Era." Poe's brand of witty introspection is backed by a <strong>Charlie X-</strong>helmed beat borrowing off a sample of <strong><a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/2013/11/25/naeto-c-finish-work/" target="_blank">Naeto C</a></strong>'s "<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nCKLvkpjWE" target="_blank">Ten Over Ten</a>." Watch <strong>Shakes</strong>' art-heavy video below. "New Era" will feature on Poe's upcoming <em>T.A.P (Talk about Poe).</em></p><p><span style="display:block;position:relative;padding-top:56.25%;" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="69993198bed851b603d98618eabf54cb"><iframe type="lazy-iframe" data-runner-src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/xwJmgRnDMKw?rel=0" width="100%" height="auto" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%;"></iframe></span></p>
