WurlD, Walshy Fire & Shizzi Drop The Afro Soul Summer Jam 'Show You Off'

Nigeria meets the Caribbean in WurlD, Walshy Fire (Major Lazer) & Shizzi's breezy summer track "Show You Off."

Nigerian-American singer WurlD is sharing his new 'afro soul' single “Show You Off," a collaboration with Major Lazer's Walshy Fire and producer Shizzi.


The breezy track pairs some “Ojuelegba"-style melodies with a bouncing bass line and beat work that straddles both the Caribbean and African sides of the Atlantic.

Walshy Fire's been at the forefront of this new hybrid of afrobeats and Caribbean sounds through collaborations with the likes of Wizkid & Runtown and his 'Afro Soca' parties. He's currently working on finishing up an Afro-Caribbean EP called Global Citizen.

In “Show You Off" Walshy shares production duties with Nigerian beat maker Shizzi, the man behind “Skelewu," “Dami Duro," “Show You The Money" and many other massive Nigerian hits.

Hear the new "Show You Off" collaboration below.
