Rising Nigerian singer/songwriter MisterKay blends Afropop with R&B stylings in his new double single offering titled TOAST which serves as the final offering for the year. The two-song release is made up of “Diego” and “Dirty Diana,” two songs that show MisterKay’s versatile approach to music blending different genres to suit his mood.
“Diego” tells a story of an artistic photographer who praises the artsy figure and rhythmic movement of his muse. The production by Master Maison is a superb mix of atmospheric textures, thick basslines, and a drum groove that fits the singer’s playful melodic runs and low tone delivery. The second record “Dirty Diana,” details a love story filled with the emotional tug of war and toxicity over a moody and hypnotic backdrop provided by Master Maison. He delivers a gripping impassioned performance with his distinct husky vocals and with a knack for painting vivid pictures, he takes us deep into the mix while taking steps to rectify the situation and hopefully create the perfect love he so yearns for.
