Award-winning Nigerian disc jockey and producer DJ NEPTUNE today announces his second album, Greatness 2.0, coming Nov. 26 via Neptune Records/emPawa Africa. The project features a heavyweight roster of African music superstars including Mr Eazi, Patoranking, Yemi Alade, Stonebwoy, Joeboy, Zlatan, Omah Lay, Simi and many, many more.
A legend in Nigeria’s music scene, DJ NEPTUNE has been called Africa’s answer to DJ Khaled for his ability to bring the continent’s top names together in musical harmony. Greatness: The Album, his 2018 debut, pulled from his extensive contacts and years of experience as one of Nigeria’s top club DJs and radio personalities to create a star-studded compilation with features from Burna Boy, Davido, Mr Eazi, Kizz Daniel and Olamide, to name a few.
Greatness 2.0, dropping through DJ NEPTUNE’s own Neptune Records in partnership with Mr Eazi’s emPawa Africa, is a survey of the sounds and genres currently running Africa, from Afrobeats to Amapiano and Asakaa, Ghana’s thrilling new take on drill.
“With this project, I wanted to create something that people of different age brackets, and fans of different genres of music, can connect with,” DJ NEPTUNE says. “I’ve been able to conquer my market in Nigeria, and now this is me moving out of my homebase and spreading my wings across other regions of Africa.”
In addition to the recent drop ‘Gaza' featuring Patoranking, the album also boasts ‘Nobody' featuring Mr Eazi and Joeboy, the #1 single of 2020 in Nigeria. ‘Nobody' topped Apple Music’s singles chart in eight countries, racking up over 135 million streams and becoming 2020’s third most shared song on Triller. The original track’s success led to the release of Nobody: The Extended Playlist (Worldwide Remixes), a remix album featuring collaborations with artists from around the world.
