Eja Nlá Unleashes “Castaway”: A Sonic Fusion of NYC Swagger and Lagos Vibes
In a musical revelation that hit the streets today, Eja Nlá, the Nigerian artist with New York City roots, has dropped his latest track, “Castaway.” With this new song, he takes his fans on a musical journey that seamlessly blends the gritty swagger of NYC with the infectious beats of Lagos, specifically Ikorodu.
With over two years in the game, Eja Nlá has honed a sound that captures the essence of both worlds – the relentless energy of a New Yorker and the rhythmic vibe of a Lagosian. Today, on the streets where it all began, he makes a statement with “Castaway.”
Raised in the heart of the Big Apple, Eja Nlá’s journey started in a Christian home in Brooklyn, where singing with the children’s choir was a Sunday ritual. Fast forward to today, and Eja Nlá drops a track that speaks to the power of music, transcending dialects and summoning emotions buried deep within.
As Eja Nlá puts it, “From songs of endearment to songs of empowerment, staying true to one’s craft is the real deal.” And now, the spotlight is on “Castaway,” a track born during a time of self-discovery, reflecting the highs and lows of life.
In his own words, “Castaway is about seeing what you want and going for it, never fold. Always remember time is the biggest snitch on the block. I can love you today and you violate me tomorrow. It’s life.”
