After what many fans have called a long delay, the much anticipated video for the comeback artistes of the decade, the Black Reverendz, has finally hit the airwaves.
It would be recalled that an attempt was made to steal their latest effort, “Won ti Gboro”, sometime in September 2014, even before it was officially released.
It was reported at that time that there were moves by a certain popular artiste and his producer friend to steal the song, quickly do a remix, and beat the original owners to the market with their version.
The artiste had heard the song in the studio and was impressed, but was not happy with the fact that the Black Revrendz were boasting that the new single would shoot them to the top of the industry soon as it is released.
“They made attempt to steal the master, but for the fact that the (Black) Revrendz are liked by a lot of their colleagues who see them as opening the door to the current era in Nigeria’s music industry, so the conspiracy was immediately reported to the artistes who alerted their producer and quickly took steps to protect it,” the source had said.
The much anticipated video finally hit the airwaves as it was released online on Wednesday.
“Won ti Gboro” is a welcome back song.  It talks about the good old days when they were right at the top of the pack in the nation’s music industry, assuring fans that they are back and set to claim that pride of place.
The video was directed by Wudi Away (Woodland Production).
The video locations include African Shrine, and the streets of Ajegunle, where they shot the “welcome back” part of the song.
The song features the hugely talented Sound Sultan, and was produced by “DA PIANO”.
It would be recalled that the duo of Adams and Wesley took the industry by storm with their 90s hit single, “Ayangba Girlz” which topped every available chart with at the time.
In 2001, Hip-Hop magazine called them the “Kings of the Stage,” and “Ayangba Girlz” won the prestigious Fame Music Award, FMA’s song of the year 2001, beating Lagbaja, and the Plantashun Boys to clinch the award. They had earlier won the Best Indigenous Rap group in the first ever Hip Hop Society Award in 2000.
Although the duo showed signs of a successful team whose limit was the sky, but just when the entertainment community expected them to step up their game to higher heights, Black Revrendz went into oblivion.
Their second album was due for release in 2003 but there were issues with the record label and when it couldn’t be resolved the both parties went their separate ways.
The group couldn’t however release the album with another label because they had naively signed a 10-yer contract that expired in 2008. By this time, Wesley had set up an audio studio and was also working with an NGO, while Shobb2 went into promotion and also acted in a couple of movies.
By the time the contract expired (2008), and after bagging a degree in Education Psychology from the University of Lagos, Adams Shaibu appeared as ‘One Black Revrend’ with the single, “Skele” for which track he shot a fantastic video but for unknown reasons, the single was not promoted.
But now, after over 10 years and signed to MJG Intercontinental Records, USA, the Black Reverendz are set to hit the streets, clubs and airwaves with their new party jumper.
