Nigerian singer, Skales has released his long-anticipated studio body of work titled, ‘Sweet Distractions‘ (album).

Housing fourteen Afro tunes, the project features African music heavyweights, , Stonebwoy, Zlatan, and so on.

The songs on Skales’s Sweet Distractions fit into three broad categories: revived rapper credentials; animated relationship travails; and the contemporary zest of South Africa’s amapiano.

Better known as a crooner, Skales beginnings as a rapper dictate proceedings on “As Always”, “Katapot” and on album opener “Hope, Freedom and Love”, on which he recounts his mother’s succumbing to a stroke, as well as career slights, drug use, relationship strife and money worries: “It still hurts, I hate the world so much man/Thank God I don’t own no nuke”.



Over woozy synths, emphatic kick drums and roving pianos, Skales finds good synergy “Pants on Fire” with fellow Nigerian artist Blaqbonez who, himself, started out as a rapper, but later embraced the melodious advantage of his singing voice.

“Heart in a casket/I’m done with that love shit” sings Blaqbonez with steely resolve to repair a deep hurt. On more than one occasion, Skales proves to be a dab hand at amapiano.

Skales is about to do justice with his latest album, ‘Sweet Distractions’ – enjoy below!!!
