Bankulli is a name that needs no introduction as he has been along the corridors of the music scene even as a talent manager. In the month of April, earlier this year, he released his viral spiritual tune tagged “Gbemiro” which also hosted the vocal dexterity of renowned singer, WurlD. It is tagged as an Afro-sensational which was produced by producer, singer and song writer, Nonso Amadi. “Gbemiro” which means to lift and uphold is a Yoruba word culled into a spiritual song that comes with a special and strong message alongside prayers. The single became an instant favorite on social media as it extended a feeling of hope and continued blessings amid a global pandemic.
The manager/music influencer is notable for his work with Mo’ Hits Records, D’banj, Kanye West, and Jay Z, and to his most recent collaborations with Beyoncé on Lion King: The Gift. Bankulli has returned bigger and better and this time collaborates with French-based Congolese singer, Hiro on the remix of the Afrospiritual, “Gbemiro.”
Hiro comes in with a fresh vibe adorning the amazing Yoruba-inclined piece with his vocals laced with French. Hiro’s contribution brought a different vibe to the offering and it’s so inviting. Born Abisagboola Oluseun John, Bankulli is a singer and songwriter born in Lagos and his work as a talent manager has increased his influence across both Afrobeats and Afropop across the world. His name has gone global already and there’s no telling the limit for this talent right here.
