With the emergence of Afro-European wave, Breezy ideygoke hopes to be at the forefront of it all with eccentric EP, ‘I-Dey’. A fusion of musical influences including rap and R&B maintained a central theme of Afrobeat. The four-track EP centred around the theme of love is narrated from 4 different perspectives, presented with cool-headed lyricism mainly in English but doesn’t shy away from also incorporating Irish and Yoruba.
iDeyGoke kicks off the project with ‘Snakey Lover’ a tale about being on the receiving end of scorned love leading one to re-focusing on one’s happiness and what is important in life, featuring Irish singer-songwriter Tolü Makay. The saga continues with ‘MIA’ (Money in the APP) a depiction of a love/hate relationship with technology. Followed by ‘Ransom’ a tale about being lured in by a lover who takes over your whole life. From feeling like you are on top of your own world into falling right back into being a hostage as someone took your love for ransom. The project ends on a high note with ‘Bag A Man’ the moment where love comes full circle. Although previously hesitant you still know what it is you want. Looking to fall in love with someone who won’t bring you drama and turn your world upside down. Somehow that love is infectious that you get caught up in it and someone does Bag A Man.
iDeyGoke shared “This project in a way is a quick flash of an idea to understand what it’s like to be me. This is a 15 mins introduction to who I am. As an Afro-Irish individual who has gone out looking for love. ‘I Dey’ – Means I am in pidgin English and is also another way of interpreting a part of my surname Adegoke.”
