Popular rapper and pop culture icon, Reminisce hosted members of the media and close industry friends to an exclusive listening session of his soon to be released album, El Hadj, at an exquisite event hosted by Ehiz of MTV at the Lotus, Victoria Island, Lagos, on Thursday, 25th August, 2016.

The album listening event which was powered by mobile phone giant, Samsung, and supported by Orijin, had in attendance some of the finest minds from various sections of the media.

The highlight of the night was the feat achieved by playing the entire album via a Samsung Galaxy S7 connected to Samsung Level Box Pro speakers, which served as sound support. The Galaxy S7, launched earlier this year, features unique audio capabilities, and delivered on this, treating the audience to crystal clear sound throughout the listening.

Another notable highlight of the night was the elegantly dressed Orijin Ladies, attired in beautiful Orijin Ankara prints, who ensured that everyone present had enough Orijin cocktails and drinks.

Remilekun Safaru, who is better known by his stage name, Reminisce, is a brand ambassador for Samsung, as well as Orijin, a product of Diageo Nigeria PLC.

Speaking to the media, Reminisce, said: “The journey has been a beautiful one, from the launch of Book of Rap Stories in 2012, to the launch of Alaga Ibile in 2013, Baba Hafusa in 2015, and now El Hadj. All I can say is a very big thank you to my supporters all over the world and to my corporate partners Samsung and Diageo who have always been there to support me all the way.”

He added that the album is a carefully constructed body of work, which explores more introspective themes that focus on destiny, deity, love and street credibility.

With ElHadj, Reminisce’s versatility as a veteran rapper, fuji artist and afrobeat maestro comes out strongly. Reminisce consummates his art via a masterfully crafted album showcasing artistic development and his maturity as a recording artiste.

The album, which has 16 tracks and a bonus track, is spiced with the production skills of producers such as, Sarz, Sossick, TMXO, TSpize, Camo Blaiz, Tyce, Jomane & PBanks. It also features collaborations with music heavyweights such as 2Baba; Mr Eazi; Solidstar; Olamide; Seriki; 9ice; Sojay and fast rising hip hop star, Ola Dips.

El Hadj is now available for pre-order on ITunes  and will also be available on all major traditional and digital platforms from the 29th of August 2016.

The event which was held at the Lotus, Victoria Island, Lagos, was hosted by Ehiz, MTV video-jockey.
