Ghanaian Afrobeats artist Gibrilville presents the Kamhabit-directed music video for his new single “Kilodey”, produced by Nigerian beatsmith Jay Synth, who produced Teni’s 2018 hit “Case”. Born in Accra, Ghana, Gibril a.k.a. Gibril Da African survived a traumatic birth, a near-fatal blood transfusion and civil wars in Togo and Nigeria before moving to the US in 2000, honing his craft during travels throughout the country before settling in Brooklyn. Gibril has collaborated with M1 of deadprez (stream “Streets Of Africa”), Blitz The Ambassador (stream “Ghetto Youths”), and has several releases under his belt including 2015’s Foreign Exchange Hustler (watch the music video). “‘Kilodey is a Yoruba word from Nigeria that means ‘why,'” Gibril says about his new single. “The song is a love story about a guy trying to date a girl, and she is playing hard to get.” “Kilodey” will appear on Good Things Manifest & Bad Things Defect, Gibril’s forthcoming album featuring appearances from Wanlov, Tek and Kwaw Kese, coming soon on Foreign Exchange Records.
