The Big Hash releases fitting visuals for his latest song "Amnesia."

The Big Hash Shares Visuals for ‘Amnesia’ and Releases New Song from Upcoming EP

Watch The Big Hash's music video for 'Amnesia' and his new song 'My Way' from upcoming EP.

To celebrate his 20th birthday yesterday while on lockdown, The Big Hash released visuals for his latest single "Amnesia."


The visuals, which were directed by ArtByTK, show a melancholic Hash crooning to a backdrop of the twilight in the horizon in an effluent residential area. He can also be seen indoors in what looks like a spooky abandoned building.

The visuals are fitting for a song in which he is talking to a woman who has changed on him. The song is somber in both mood and form.


To make sure his birthday felt like a special day, the young rapper from Pretoria shared "My Way" a song from his upcoming EP Life + Times II and one that features his main produced 808x. The EP will be a sequel to The Big Hash's popular EP Life + Times of a Teenage Influence which was released in 2018.

The Big Hash had a great 2019 as he released the critically acclaimed mixtape Young, which came with some of the rapper's finest songs yet.

The Big Hash touched 2020 running as he has already two singles and a music video. "Again" was released last month. Hash stated earlier this year that fans should expect tones of music from him. He recently tweeted he will be exploring more R&B singing in his music, which explains the songs he has released thus far.

Watch the music video for "Amnesia" and stream "My Way" on SoundCloud.

Reekado Banks Recalls The Carnage of The #EndSARS Protests In Single 'Ozumba Mbadiwe'

The Nigerian singer pays his respects to those lost during last year's #EndSARS protests.

Nigerian singer and songwriter Reekado Banks is back with a track that is as socially important as it is a banger. It seems fitting for the singer's first solo release of the year to be a tribute to his fellow countrypeople fighting for a country that they all wish to live in. The 27-year-old Afrobeats crooner has returned with endearing track 'Ozumba Mbadiwe', honoring the one-year anniversary of the #EndSARS protests that saw the Nigerian government authorize an onslaught of attacks on Nigerian citizens for their anti-government demonstrations.

The protests took the world by storm, additionally because the Nigerian government insists that none of the police brutality happened. In an attempt to gaslight the globe, Nigerian officials have come out to hoards to deny any and all accusations of unlawfully killing peaceful protesters. Banks mentions the absurd denials in the track, singing "October 20, 2020 something happened with the government, they think say we forget," in the second verse. Reekado's reflective lyrics blend smoothly and are supported by the upbeat, effortless Afrobeat rhythm.

In another reflective shoutout to his home, 'Ozumba Mbadiwe' is named after a popular expressway on Lagos Island that leads to the infamous Lekki Toll Gate where protesters were shot at, traumatized, and murdered. Although packed with conscious references, the P.Priime produced track is a perfect amalgamation of the talents that Reekado Banks has to offer; a wispy opening verse, a hook to kill, and an ethereal aura to mark this as a song as a hit. On "Ozumba Mbadiwe," all the elements align for Reekado's signature unsinkable sound to take flight.
