Award-winning rapper Ice Prince’s single Make Up Your Mind is just what Africa needs for the springtime.
The rapper and hip-hop star – whose real name is Panshak Zamani – featured singer, songwriter and producer Tekno on the single.
Tekno also featured on Beyonce’s album The Lion King: The Gift on the track Don’t Jealous Me.
Produced by Stunna the two artists came together to create an authentic African piece that will appeal to a global audience.
Ice Prince chemistry
Ice Prince says he and Tekno have amazing chemistry so collaborating was inevitable.
“Over the years, myself and Tekno have collaborated on a few records and it’s always amazing chemistry when we are in the studio together,” he says.
“I am a big fan of Tekno’s artistry, and he also shows me the same love so it’s always a good vibe when we link up.
“Magic always happens when we do and we just felt it’s about that time again.”
The rapper also released the music video for the single directed by TG Omori. The director and cinematographer has directed music videos for Burna Boy, D’banj, Fireboy and Wizkid.
The music video itself is avant garde, colourful and bright.
“We just wanted to have fun with the video but at the same time show off some African beauty and style,” Ice Prince says.
“A lot of credit goes to the director TG Omori and the stylist Sneaker Boy. We literally just put our heads together and the mood board came to life.”
