IYKZ + Maleek Berry – They Know (Wan Mo) | Music Video
Rising north London rapper, IYKZ, is back with brand-new single, “They Know (Wan Mo)”, a collaboration with fellow Londoner, Maleek Berry.
Written and produced by IYKZ and Maleek, the single is part of the growing Afro Bashment genre and is already a hit on streaming platforms, with almost 150,000 streams on Spotify alone since being released independently only a few weeks ago.
With the single off to a strong start, IYKZ is keeping the momentum going with the release of the music video, directed by Meji Alabi (Zak Abel, Maleek Berry, Sneakbo) for JM Films.
Shot in an underground warehouse in Hackney, East London, the monochromatic visuals provide the perfect backdrop for the gritty, hard-hitting street anthem, which also pays homage to the two rappers’ Nigerian heritage.
Speaking on the record, IYKZ says, “‘Wan mo’ means ‘they know’ in the Nigerian Yoruba language. I’m Igbo but Maleek is Yoruba, so we blend both dialects throughout the record. It’s a patriotic street anthem. We want our voices to be heard”.
“They Know (Wan Mo)” is available to buy and stream now on all major music platforms, and is one of several new singles IYKZ will be releasing over the coming months.
