They are already a well-established name back home in Nigeria
but De Indispensables will also be known in the UK before long. The duo, who
blend Reggae and Hip Hop with cool African vibes, is about to invade Britain’s
airwaves with the infectious Afro-Reggae tune “Sweet Mama.”
De Indispensables are already gathering momentum in Nigeria. Already they have
performed and recorded with MOBO-winning rapper and Choice FM DJ Phoebe One.
Nigeria’s Radio Palmwine has named them as one of the most exciting new acts to
emerge in 2005, an accolade made even greater when they were voted into the
station’s top ten by its listeners. They have also appeared on MNet TV’s South
Al Channel and Channel O alongside other top Nigeria urban acts and DJs and have
been featured in two of Nigeria’s national newspapers.Now, in a first taste of UK and European interest, De Indispensables were the
subject of a documentary on the international black culture channel BEN TV (on
Sky Digital, Telewest etc.) in November 2005.
The single Sweet Mama, which also features J.Boy, shows De Indispensables
indulging the Afro Reggae end of their spectrum. Its lilting buoyant melody and
cool vocal harmonies will delight fans well beyond Reggae and Urban circles. To
follow will be their debut UK album release, currently scheduled for April 2006,
which will demonstrate the diversity and sheer maturity in their writing and
