Siki is a rising artiste from Port Harcourt, Nigeria. His track “Ride or Die” is a groovy composition that will make you either bop your head or stomp your feet. “Ride or Die” perfectly captures the trending sound in Nigeria, with Siki’s fresh and unique vocals floating over the melodic mid-tempo tune.
It’s a style that can be compared to that of Joeboy, another emerging Nigerian artiste. Nonetheless, Siki seems to have made this sound his own on “Ride or Die.” The production is smooth and vibrant as Siki’s vocals blend perfectly with the instrumentation.
Lyrically, the song is focused on an individual who pleads with their love interest not to abandon what they have together. It’s a smashing tune from the up and coming music star.
A CONVERSATION WITH SIKI
Tim: How long have you been an artiste?
Siki: I’ve been an artist for 3 years now
Tim: Who or what inspired you to be an artiste?
Siki: I didn’t really take music session but after the release of my first song and how it was widely accepted in school, I got inspired to do more. Ric Hassani and my mom inspire me to do music and be a better artist
Tim: Do you write songs or play any instruments?
Siki: I write all my songs and I also play the guitar
Tim: What’s the origin of Ride or Die? What’s the inspiration behind the song?
Siki: So a lot of my songs are inspired by the things happening around. They’re not really self experienced but are created from things I hear and others life experiences. Ride or die is just a story of a guy assuring the girl he loves to stay with him
Tim: What plans do you have at the moment? Any EPs or LPs we should be expecting?
Siki: I’ve a full EP being worked on. It’s also done. I also have a video for ride or die
Tim: Lovely stuff. Finally, what’s the purpose of your music? What do you want people to feel when listening to your songs?
Siki: Most of the music I write is love related and inspiring too. My music should make people feel good and inspired, that they can achieve whatever they put their mind on doing. I expect them to be captivated by my voice and in the process get the messaged being passed
With “Ride or Die” as evidence, I think it’s safe to say, “expect great things from Siki!”
