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 most influential 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 “Only Fan,” singles include “Gaza” featuring Patoranking and “Nobody” featuring Mr Eazi and Joeboy, the #1 single of 2020 in Nigeria .
