Maka – Precious Stone | New Music


Acclaimed, Lagos based soul singer Maka is back in the forefront with her first single for the year, the warm and humble dedication entitled “Precious Stone”.


Coming off the back of Mother’s Day, the record is a passionate tribute to all mothers who regardless of the challenges they face still pull through to give their children the life they richly deserve. Produced by Producer and DJ Teck-Zilla of Str8Buttah Productions, it’s been inspired by Maka’s own mother whose name Ojiugo means ‘Precious Stone’ in the Igbo language.


Teck-Zilla trades his staple Hip-Hop beats for a reflective, moving, horn-driven backdrop, over which Maka delivers a rousing performance that starts off mellow and rises to a crescendo as she reaches deep into her emotions. She talks about her childhood in a single parent home, the ups and downs but most importantly how her mother has continued to support her dream regardless of all the challenges they face.


Maka has and continues to be considered by many as an artist to watch out for, with her Jazz/Soul fusion tantalising the palettes of many a music fan. Having shared stages with artists like Bez, Simi and Mi Casa among others, Maka is a burgeoning artist that definitely commands your attention.
