Alapomeji’s ZARA does it again: Drops hot new single titled “Mommi Mi”. Shoots video for "The Flyest".
Lagos, Nigeria – Alapomeji Recording Artist Zara is keeping busy these days with her new single “Mommi Mi” officially out and the video for the ground-breaking single "The Flyest" in the works. “Mommi Mi”, the latest single promises to be a fan favorite with a banging beat, metaphorical lyrics, and smooth delivery.
The inspiration for the track Mommi Mi according to Zara, came from wanting to do a song that praises that special someone who inspires us. Upon listening to the beat the first thing that came into mind was “I get it from my momma”, so she was inspired to create an anthem for everyone, honoring the special people who have inspired us, and also making it one for all the enjoy and dance to regardless of their age or gender. At a time where female musicians are “bringing it” in the Nigerian music industry, Zara is without a doubt carving a place for herself as a force to be reckoned with. Her unique style mixes a lot of hip hop, dancehall and oozes sensuality while still keeping it "naija".
“Mommi Mi is not just a club banger or a feel good song” said Toni Payne-Akande, Zara’s manager. “It is a song with a deeper meaning that most people can relate to, most of us have someone we look up to, that person doesn’t have to be our biological mother, it could be someone you admire, that person can be seen as your Mommi Mi”, she said.
"The Flyest" video, shot in Los Angeles, California, promises to be one of the best videos of 2009 with a concept straight out of an unwritten African fairy tale. “The concept for "The Flyest" video is very different, we decided we needed to think outside the box and we found the perfect director and team to give us that. We are trying to stay away from things that are too cliché, so expect the unexpected” said Payne-Akande.
Mommi Mi was written by Zara with intro vocals done by Kid Konnect. It was produced by Dj Teffler for JuvyTek Entertainment and mixed by Brandon Lackey of Mania Music Group.
