FEW weeks after dropping Turn It Up, their latest album into the Nigerian and international markets, the hip-hop crooning trio of Majeed, Saal and Slez, who together make up the rave group, X-project, are currently on an Xmas musical tour.
In a Yuletide chat with us, the Sierra-Naija acts, disclosed that they would be on a nationwide tour, starting on Xmas day after, kickstarting the West African leg, which would begin and end in Sierra Leone.
Speaking further, the leader of the group, Majeed, posited that the tour, which began in Lagos, was basically to promote their newest effort, a 13-tracker with a bonus track.
â€œWe are using this opportunity to wish all our fans, both here and abroad, a Merry Xmas and a fun filled New Year. Turn It Up, is basically for our fans and we decided to release it this period, because this is the season of love, and its about giving and sharing. And this tour would further help to bring us closer to our fans who have been yearning to hear from us musically, in the last two years. We love them all and cannot do without them.â€
Turn It Up was produced by some of the best hands in the industry, including Puffy T. OJB, Chris Okoro and MJ Nastie.
All the wave making songs were mixed by the talented trio of Papa Joe, Foster Zino and Chris Okoro and technically recorded at the hi-tech SKP Studio 1 plus. It was later taken to Koln, Germany where it was mastered by Stefan Heger at Fisheye music studio.
Xproject collaborated with popular entertainers like MI, Daddy Showkey, Pasuma, Azadus, OJB and radio presenter, Yaw, in the new album. Released under Sam Kargbo- led SKP label, it is being marketed and distributed by CD Warehouse.
The full album, including the hit singles, The way you wayne, Bosenlo, Too much money and Get down, are currently enjoying massive rotation and rave reviews on the airways. Amazingly too, a total of 11 music videos, were shot by Godfada Production, who was flown in with his full crew, from South Africa, thus making them the first group to achieve the historic fear, in the annals of the Nigerian music industry.
