BN Exclusive: Bez’s ‘Super Sun’ is here! – And You Get To Hear it First!

Posted on Thursday, July 21st, 2011 at 10:05 AM

Bez is good music. And we’re unashamed to say we love his sound and what he churns out at every turn. It’s been a long time coming since we first heard Zuciya Daya and Stop Pretending. Super Sun is due out on Sunday, the 24th of July, and it will be ushered in with a live concert for a very small crowd at the swanky SS Lounge, Victoria Island. Tickets for the event will be available for sale at N5, 000 at selected outlets and event partners.

 

The 15 track Super Sun album was entirely produced by the enigmatic Cobhams Asuquo, with the exception of the track “I Know” co-produced by phenom, IBK. This album captures the rare and un-distilled essence of Bez.

Super Sun was a collaborative labor of love. Seven of the songs were mixed by five-time Grammy nominated mixing engineer, Ryan West. Ryan is best known for chart-busting hip hop and R&B mixes for Rihanna, Eminem, Jay Z, T.I., Usher and many more. Nicolas Mollard, a noted French guitarist and member of Asa’s band, played guitar on the song “Technically”. Joan Ekpai, one of the few female recording and mixing engineers in Nigeria, and Olaitan Dada assisted Cobhams on the other songs. With contributions such as these, it goes without saying that the Super Sun album is a musical tapestry woven with skill, heart, and love.

      @freespirit “Naija’s own John Legend”? abeg relax bo! U guys and over-hype sef *hiss*

      Anyway, this is really a 12-track album minus d live tracks n the remix and its ok,not great. Its ok cos the production is fantastic, Bez can sing and play the guitar (wish there were more tracks where that was emphasized like Zuchi daya), and the song writing is good. Its not great tho cos there aren’t enuf songs that quite permeate and touch my soul(and the soul of other nigerians-not you bigot) like zuchi daya did or “i know”-i.e. the sound is great but the music in totality is just ok. Best songs tho are i know, zuchi daya, stop pretending,the good the bad and the ugly. Good effort Bez,pray that u only grow from here but this is just my honest opinion.looking forward to getting my copy!

      Oya let d yaps flow!

    • C. Abbey July 21, 2011 at 5:44 PM

      “I’ll be the Super sun”?? Really guys? That has to be the worst song on the album and its a bad intro for me-too corny! “Super Sun”???? Abeg wetin be that?The other songs are cool tho, good effort!

    • C. Abbey July 21, 2011 at 5:49 PM

      forgot to say- The good,the bad and the Ugly is a jam! It might sound somehow but try incorporate small naija into the music bro-not by going the timaya way but with what u sing about and some language(pidgin or your local dialect) here and there that people can relate to. There’s already one John Legend- you are BEZ! Stand out bro…good effort again!

    • C.O July 21, 2011 at 7:28 PM

      I love Bez, I’m such a huge fan I can wait for the debut!!!!

    • MrB July 21, 2011 at 8:08 PM

      Bez has killed me! This is beyond phenomenal, this is beyond master class, this in it’s most conservative description is ETHEREAL! I want the hard copy, signed, sealed and delivered. Please Mr Idakula accept this unofficial grammy.

    • Kaka July 21, 2011 at 8:12 PM

      I enjoyed the music. BTW I think he sounds more like Kem than John Legend.

    • eloho July 21, 2011 at 9:41 PM

      BEZ!!!! So proud of him!

    • becca July 22, 2011 at 10:01 AM

      Can’t wait to get the album! Will definitely be at his album launch, yay!

    • kay July 22, 2011 at 6:15 PM

      i listen to this song everyday and always have tears in my eyes. cant wait for the album. i still want more U BEZ

    • cathy July 23, 2011 at 2:14 PM

    • ugowoundo July 23, 2011 at 9:17 PM

      i’m not a big fan…………NEXT PLZ!!

      • nobaz July 28, 2011 at 9:37 PM

        hater!

    • Toryxhe Tite October 14, 2011 at 12:55 PM

      Wow! This album rocks 4 real!!!!

    • millie February 6, 2012 at 4:49 PM

      Bez is fantastic and sensational…. i love his genre of music, i was wowed wen i heard zuciya daya and watched him on maga no need pay. you have to be a highly intellectual person to understand bez and his kind of his music. If you aint feeling this album yet, then that’s your loss. not his.
