Ric Hassani, Nigerian reggae singer, has put out ‘The Prince I Became’, his second studio album.
The 17-track body of work, released on Friday as scheduled, comes after his 2016 album ‘The African Gentleman.’
The project includes collaborative tracks with the likes of Nicky Jam, Sauti Sol, Zoro, Frank Edwards among others.
In 2017, Hassani had told TheCable Lifestyle that a lot of his fans comprised of men.
“It’s two ways. Honestly, some men want to be the nicest guys. Some men want to say the nicest things. But they don’t know what to say and how to say it. Let my song help them. You know what I mean?” the singer had said.
“On the side of the females, if they don’t have any man to say these things to them, let my song say it to them. That’s why a lot of people tell me that they always replay my song. To remain in that bubble.
“They tell me ‘Let me just be inside this Ric Hassani song now to just make myself feel that I’m in love, loved – like I’m in a relationship even if I’m not in one’. The funny thing is: most of my fans are guys.”
At the 2016 edition of the All Africa Music Awards, Hassani was nominated in three categories. He would also receive two nominations at The Headies 2016, including ‘Best Alternative Song’ for his track ‘Gentleman’.
In December 2018, his Falz and Olamide-assisted ‘Believe’ won Best Collaboration at the Galaxy Music Awards.
