Sometimes when you hear a song for the first time, you just know. This is the case with Port Harcourt-based, Nigerian-raised artist Prinx Emmanuel‘s unconventional 2021 debut single “Tah“. It isn’t about knowing that Prinx Emmanuel is the next big thing, or that this track is a hit single, but there is a weight to this song that feels like the beginning of something important.
He has been putting out music at a prolific rate, and doesn’t sacrifice quality. If you’re a new fan, you’re in luck. There’s no shortage of music in his constantly growing discography, and while the standouts might reel you in, it’s the deep cuts that will keep you hooked. His previously released singles “Brother Nwachukwu” and “God No Go Shame Us” forecast Prinx Emmanuel’s continued ability to innovate and surprise.
Judging by this one he’s done, he’s in no rush. His reluctant attitude toward fame, eye for elevated visuals, and understated authenticity characterize an artist bound for cultural significance and art anchored by instinct. That’s the kind of thing you can’t manufacture or force if you try, not that Prinx Emmanuel would want to anyway.
After watching this video, you’ll also think you should change Bobby Rak‘s name to Bob Iraq as he likes to make videos that are sure to blow your mind away.
