Praiz

Leading Nigerian DJ, DJ Neptune has endorsed Praiz sophomore album titled King.

Speaking on why he endorsed the 16-track album which features Olamide, Timaya, Phyno and other musicians, DJ Neptune said Praiz cant definitely can’t go wrong with the album.

“He is a great guy, amazing vocals. I know definitely he can’t go wrong with this album. This is his second album, and he is proving himself over and over again,” DJ Neptune said in an interview.

The King album was born out of self-awareness, according to Praiz.

 “I named it the King album because I went to a point of self-awareness. I am a very modest person. I didn’t really place value on what I was able to do, my abilities. I went passed that stage, and I got to a point of self-awareness. I have realised who I truly am, and I named the album the King album.”

Go and get this album. It’s an amazing body of work, it is one of the best project you will ever listen to this year, and till I release another album, trust me.
