Lagos based Afro hip hop duo Skuki has dropped a remix of a previously released single to commemorate the 2013 Lagos Countdown. Titled ''Happy New Year'' the new single along with the obligatory video, hit the airwaves on Sunday 1 December 2014. Speaking on this development, Skuki said: ''The single is perhaps the most appropriate song for the new year 2014 and we intend to perform it at the Lagos Countdown''.
The second edition of the Lagos countdown programme holding at Bar Beach, Victoria Island, would begin on December 7 and end January 1, 2014. The Managing Director of Lagos State Signage and Advertisement Agency (LASAA), Mr. George Noah said this year’s event would be bigger and better. ''We welcome initiatives such as the Skuki single remix as a means of making this year's countdown a memorable one'' Noah added.
Skuki is made of two brothers: Tumininu Laolu-Oguniyi and Atewologun Laolu-Ogunniyi. Their debut single, "Fire," stayed on the Africa Edition of the Channel O Top 10 Chart for four months and was number one for four consecutive weeks. Their singles "Stamina" featuring "MoÇheddah" and "Banger" featuring "DJ Zeez" have brought them awards and prominence.
Skuki has a way of building and creating vivid images from their songs, there by taking it way beyond the music and inspiring their fans every step of the way. Skuki came out with another monster hit for 2013 B.A.D an acronym for ‘BEAUTIFUL AND DIFFERENT’.
