11 months ago

Nigerian rapper, songwriter, and performing artist Sodiq Abubakar Yusuf, who is also known as CDQ shares his third studio album "Vibes and Lifestyle"

Continuing his dedication to Indigenous raps on his fourth release, CDQ infuses electronic production and rhythmic instrumentation with his signature relatable lyrics. With a spontaneous vibe, the rapper folds Yoruba rhymes into engaging storylines. He reunites with Masterkraft on “Bahamas” while adding cross-regional appeal with Tanzanian singer Ben Pol featuring on the melodic “Omoka.”

The album features Wande Coal, Masterkraft, Cross IV, WETLY, Cross IV, Ben Pol, Jaywillz, and Hameen.
