The very much anticipated video for the hit song “If U Don’t Know” by CocoIce has finally been released.
The video which is been produced by the young and talented director Aina Mathew aka Matt Max will surely blow your mind as it’s something totally different and fresh.
Prolific song writer, recording artiste and a performer Mojisola Serah Sowole aka “CocoIce” is a maverick in the rap music world. This rhymester delved into the rap game by rapping and miming songs of popular international rap star such as Heavy D, 2pac, Nas, Puff Daddy, Mase, Missy Elliot, Erick Sermon and Lil kim. She’s not only an ordinary rapper but a lyricist who knows how to play around with words, metaphors and idioms as she has been exhibited in her songs.
She has done a lot of freelance recording with producers /artiste such as Jo’Kaynie, OJB Jezreel, Xtac, Black Solo, Free style amongst many others.
In 2009, she met with the late legend DaGrin, with his assistance; CocoIce was able to hone her Yoruba rap skills thereby allowing her to express her lyrics in a way she feels comfortable with and at the same time embracing her much rich culture and dialect. This was like an added advantage for her because Nigerians now appreciate songs rendered in artistes’ mother tongue.
The song “If U Don’t Know” is a remake of the late rap star, DaGrin’s hit song “Pon Pon Pon” and according to CocoIce, the song was made as her own little way of paying tribute to the late rap star.
CocoIce has shared the stage with top acts like Mode 9, Sage, Late Dagrin, Minjin, T. Code, etc.
