IYKZ is a rising British-Nigerian artist who’s joined forces with Maleek Berry for new single ‘They Know (Wan Mo)’. The track is written and produced by both IYKZ and Maleek taking influence from the growing Afro-Bashment movement.
‘They Know (Wan Mo)’ is already a hit on streaming platforms gaining almost 150,000 streams on Spotify since its release. Speaking on the record, IYKZ says:
‘Wan Mo’ means ‘they know’ in the Nigerian Yoruba language. I’m Igbo but Maleek is Yoruba, so we blend both dialects throughout the record.’
The tracks success also extends to radio with notable support from renowned UK radio DJs Twin B and DJ Target on BBC Radio 1Xtra and Jay London on Capital XTRA.
With the single off to a strong start, IYKZ is keeping the momentum going with the release of the music video directed by Meji Alabi for JM Films. The monochromatic visuals provide the perfect backdrop for the gritty, hard-hitting street anthem, which also pays homage to the two rappers’ Nigerian heritage. This is not the first time Maleek has collaborated with IYKZ , he describe working with IYKZ as ‘Magical’.
‘They Know (Wan Mo)’ is available to buy and stream everywhere. This new release from IYKZ is a patriotic street anthem and one of several new single the artist will be releasing over the coming months.
