The Fast rising artist, Bimbi Philips made an interesting performance at the Olamide Live In Concert YBNLConcertUK2016 held October 9, 2016 at The Apollo. Bimbi Philips, who’s currently riding on a high wave with the release of his hottest single ‘Lamba’, with an impressive downloads on the Lamba audio and over 400 thousand views for his video less than 7 days. Bimbi Philips whipped out his magic, as he performed his hit sound “Lamba” on stage alongside the YBNL soldiers Baddosneh, Adekunle Gold, Lil Kesh and Viktoh. With a crowd of over 5000 people constantly cheering during his performance, theres no doubt that Bimbi will soon be taking the world by storm sooner than later.
It’s finally here!
As promised, Bimbi has dropped his new single ‘Lamba’ and we believe this beautifully fused mix of Afrobeats and House music is sure to be the banger that will keep us warm in the summer months. Having mentioned in June that he was looking to work with more renowned producers, Bimbi has certainly bagged the big one here by working with the Hit-Maker (Dj Coublon) responsible for hits like Kiss Daniel’s ‘Woju’ and Technomiles ‘Duro’.
Its amazing that in less than 24 hours from the time of the Audio being released, it has had over 15k downloads from the Nigeria entertainment platform ‘Notjustok’. Bimbi also hints that plans are already in motion to have the video shot and he’s hoping for a late September/ early October Premier with a very strong hint about the video in the artwork of his ‘Lamba’ single. Can you guess what it is?!…
Its been almost 4 Months since the release of Bimbi’s debut single and all we can say is WOW! Not only did the music reach MTV Base Africa, but it has also been remixed by a famous DJ from the BBC. From the success of ‘It’s Bimbi’, the man reflects and feels that he has more to offer.
Bimbi Stated. “I fly out to Naija next month and I will be working with some top Producers to take my unique sound to the next level”. He went further as to give some hints as to the level to which he aims to take his music and nothing will get in his way!
‘It’s Bimbi’ was a track written to introduce Bimbi Philips and his new style of production to a worldwide audience. It was a project of much excitement for him especially when it was drawn to his attention that his first ever single was trending on Twitter in Nigeria. Coming off that success, Bimbi also hoped to achieve the same feat with the UK audience which, to some degree was achieved when UK’s very own renowned BBC Radio DJ TS7 requested to remix Bimbi’s hit single.
Bimbi is very much inspired by the sounds of Fela Kuti and captivated by the candidness of Kanye West. Bimbi has spent years experimenting and getting to grips with the different textures and tones that make up his compelling voice and believes that the time is now for him to put out that substance the world is yet to fully experience.
