Aristokrat Records presents their new Kaduna-born signee, Kamar, a highly-skilled drummer, pianist and singer. Kamar was first heard on the scene as a contestant on MTN Project Fame and more recently on Pucado‘s new single “Impostor“.
Well, This is Kamar‘s very very impressive debut single, “It’s Friday”. A song in which he fuses the old school ‘do wop’ and classic afro-pop sounds in honour of the most beloved day of the week, Friday! Listen & Groove :D

The last time we heard the soft-crooning skater boy Kamar, it was on fellow Aristokrat Records label mate Pucado‘s tale of a being a layer, “Imposter”.

Here, he’s on his own again and he’s softly singing to his “Darling Darling” in his native tongue of Hausa, with a few spatters of English here and there. And, we all know how sweet some Hausa sounds.

Looks like the folks at Aristokrat Records want to take over the market in 2014. The signed acts are churning out fantastic songs back-to-back and there’s only one way to go from here. Up!

“Darling Darling” is yet another great song, this time from Kamar Tachio. Hausa hasn’t sounded this good since Jeremiah Gyang. - Notjustok.com


Home to rave of the moment (and revealer of underpants) Burna Boy, Nigerian music label Aristokrat Records is looking to strike gold once again, this time through fledgling singer Kamar Tachio. Born in Kaduna, northern Nigeria, Kamar brings more to the table than just a smooth voice. The MTN Project Fame alumnus is a massively talented multi-instrumentalist — drums, keyboard and guitar — a remarkable advantage on a Nigerian music scene where charlatans with very little depth become overnight celebrities.

Kamar debuted with It's Friday, a feel-good single produced by the phenomenal LeriQ. Riding the crests of a jangly instrumental tinged with elements of traditional Hausa music, Kamar channels the vocal-based R&B style of doo-wop and impresses all the way.

On Darling Darling, his brand new follow-up to It's Friday, Kamar revisits his nothern Nigerian background blending Hausa and English lyrics delivered in his easygoing vocal style to create a native-sounding love song worth several listens. Once again, LeriQ helms production. Stream/download the new single here. - AFRicanmag.com
