One of the fastest-rising music acts to come onto the Afro-Fusion scene, with his unmistakable tone and dexterous lyrical delivery, singer, songwriter and producer Lojay has teamed up with fellow Lagos native, the prolific and internationally renowned, super-producer Sarz on their brand-new single ‘Tonongo’ (released via Sony Music Entertainment and Metallic Music).
Showcasing Lojay’s sublime vocals alongside Sarz’s slick production which blends contemporary Afrobeats with urgent Hip-Hop and sensual R&B sounds – and has established him as the go-to producer for heavyweight acts in Nigeria and across the globe such as Wizkid, Burna Boy, Skepta, Drake and Beyoncé) – ‘Tonongo’ is assisted by a must-see visual inspired by Lojay’s own experience of falling in love with a dancer.  The single is taken from a forthcoming collaborative EP from the dynamic duo.

Speaking on ‘Tonongo’, Lojay said:

“’Tonongo’ is about expressing the depth of emotion that lies beyond the surface. The single was inspired by the atmosphere of a strip club – moody and dark – a fitting ode to the dancer the song was written about. I enjoy the duality of the song. It ended up making itself and that’s the beauty of it, the beauty of music. It’s so spiritual. I’m just a vessel. I hope people relate to it and find beauty in it.”

With a musical style largely indicative of his Yoruba roots, Lojay’s previous releases included ‘Ariel’ in 2019 and 2020’s ‘Ogogoro’. The upcoming EP was borne out of Lojay’s determination to persevere through his own dark times during the start of the pandemic last year. Already a huge Sarz fan, after some reflection he decided to reach out for an introduction which led to a face to face meeting between the two acts.  Despite Lojay hoping to collaborate on one song, Sarz decided that they would work on an EP together and a 3 month-long boot-camp in Lagos ensued. Helmed by the explosive ‘Tonongo’ and its hypnotic visual, the upcoming EP is a reflection on heartbreak and vulnerability, with a sonic journey that will not only make you get up and move but will redefine the parameters of Afro-Fusion sounds and aesthetics.

Lojay & Sarz - Lv N Attn (ft. Wizkid) (prod. Sarz)

Champagne stripper, Real gold digger
She need Mulla, big bag biller
Waist on wicked, laps grown thicker (Oh my girl)
One night lover, blood and fire
Turn my balance to small boy dollar
Bum bum cover my oblangata o jesu

You win the ass cheek ballon d’or
Put all your soul into it
You make the thing go Tonongo, Tonongo,
Tonongo, Tonongo.

Body lepa and orobo
The way you ride is fluid
You make the thing go Tonongo, Tonongo,
Tonongo, Tonongo.

No be say she demand your love, Oh no
Kitty like a flamingo
Comment tu t’appelle, do you live in jalingo
Kanipe, I no want to let you go
Tele you to finito

If you be my Leia, will I be your Han Solo.
Met her at the club and hesitated to judge
Whine to the bass, to the bottle of scotch
Scramble my head and she do it on soft o girlie o
Girl you make it easy to fall in love
Cause you got the qualities I need on lock
Social sinner to fashion killer o Jesu

You win the ass cheek ballon d’or
Put all your soul into it
You make the thing go Tonongo, Tonongo,
Tonongo, Tonongo.

Body lepa and orobo
The way you ride is fluid
You make the thing go Tonongo, Tonongo,
Tonongo, Tonongo.
