Michigan State, USA based Nigerian artistes Chinedu Nchekwube (Spinner) and Sesugh Ubwa (Swizzy), together known as “SOS”, lead a new wave of Afro music hits coming from the Midwest region of the United States of America. The group was formed after three Nigerian students studying in Calvin College, Michigan, USA, bonded over a Calvin African A-cappella practice session in 2012.
Subsequently, “SOS” gained popularity in their University and beyond after few event appearances and the release of their debut Single “Biakene” and a music video titled “Dance for Me”. Their music is currently getting raves and great reviews in the US, so much the singing duo has been invited to attend the upcoming Core DJs Conference in Atlanta, Hot 107.9 Atlanta Annual “Birthday Bash” June 19 -22 and also feature on WRFG 89.3FM Atlanta, Georgia, a deal made possible by the CEO of their management company Mr. Bishop Adejube of Bishop Entertainment Consult LLC.
When asked about his company’s working relationship with “SOS”, this is what Mr. Bishop has to say “The Atlanta Hip Hop culture has made a major impact not only in the country but throughout the world. This year marks the 24th Core DJs Conference and 20th year of the largest Hip Hop showcase in the Southeast, the “Birthday Bash”. “Birthday Bash 20” will be an epic experience with a phenomenal line up of performances including Future, Ludacris, Wale, Mike Will Presents, Migo’s, K Camp, DJ Drama and more, so to have “SOS” duo coming through to be part of history is epic and we ain’t taking no chances
About The Song “Biakene”
Biakene is a persuasive way of saying “come” in Igbo language. The inspiration for the song came when one female friend of the group interrupted a studio session and Spinner called her back into the studio in Igbo.
Suddenly, the SOS crew made jokes out of the situation and thereafter, formed a song from it!
