Midnight Movie is Shunaji's debut EP. As a film aficionada, cinema was one of Shunaji's main inspirations in the making. Born in Lagos, raised in Rome and now based in London, Shunaji boasts that most rare, vital quality in an MC: a distinctive, ear-pricking sense of flow. With different idioms in the mix adding an unique flavor. Midnight Movie represents the potential for marginalised voices to become part of, if not representatives for, the mainstream.
The EP is really one of the highlights lately finding our way through jungle of great independent music being made worldwide. It aspires to evoke a cinematic dimension, bringing listeners on a journey alongside Shunaji's lyrics. "Welcome" is a a bittersweet intro to the film and "Red Honey", the lead single, being the climax. Hip hop grooves, unlimited flow, and here we are. Welcome to Shunaji's Midnight Movie.
The EP is available for purchase. More than that, keep your eyes peeled towards this artist.
