MIXTAPE: DJ Ritzy (@DdjRitzy) – AIM [Akwa Ibom Indigenous Mixtape]
As a follow up to her #OGGMixtape dropped earlier in the year, Akwa Ibom’s Foremost and Finest Female Disk Jockey, DJ Ritzy returns with another banger titled ‘Akwa Ibom Indigenous Mix’ #AIMbyDJRitzy ; a compilation of Akwa Ibom Hit Songs across generations and genres. When the ‘naija hip hop revolution’ began, and spread across the country, it took years before a good number of Akwa Ibom talents had the courage to thread that path of doing music in their mother tongue. As Akwa Ibom State celebrates her 29th year of creation, ‘daughter of the soil’ DJ Ritzy drops the mix to celebrate the state and these gifted patriotic musicians, while felicitating with millions of Akwa Ibom people at home and abroad.
As you listen to the mix, you are about to embark on a journey into the world of contemporary high life tunes which made waves in the 90s/ early 2000 and she creatively blends them with indigenous hip hop songs of the new millennium, all done in Ibibio, the official Akwa Ibom dialect. Don’t fail to share with family and friends. Happy #AkwaIbomAt29. Follow her on Twitter and Instagram
