Nigerian rapper Gino is making a comeback, known as the guy who changed the game with one video - the video for his first single “No be God?” was shot in 2005 and was acclaimed the best thing to happen to the Nigerian music Industry when it was aired, and gathered a lot of attention from all around because of its story line and depiction of street life.
A business man and CEO of MO’BB Records, Gino was born and raised in Lagos. The quintessential Gino is usually laid back rap and witty lines – sometimes gangsta, sometimes coming soul touching. He is also an accomplished singer/songwriter/ghostwriter. His style of music is a blend of Rap, R&B, Reggae, and African. He loves to experiment.
After releasing his last single that hit the air in 2005, Gino is stepping back into the scene and he has just shot a music video to accompany his big return. The video is for the song NO BE TODAY.
The song was produced by Sossick (the same producer for the late legend - Dagrin) and the video was shot at locations in Lagos and Benin City, even though it looks like it was shot in New York. Gino was noticed and featured on Jay-Z’s diary on MTVbase and his music video was played to show that rap in the U.S wasn't much different from what he saw on his trip to Nigeria.
In recording his album, Gino put together most of his experiences on the mean streets of Lagos and Benin, his relationship with God, Women, Money from songs he had written over the years. Question now is……Is he gon eva fall off?
Enjoy his new 'No Be Today' with killing punchlines like: "Jack dey dull with all work and no pay, You don't know jack - you dey dull if you use work play"
"Now if you don't make dollars, you don't make sense. They say I shouldn't make sense if I wanna make dollars... see am a role model, so I gat to make sense, I don't wanna raise dullards"...
