Niinety9 – Bodied Soul (EP)
Emechebe Chukwunomnso- popularly known as Ninety9 is a fast-rising Nigerian singer/songwriter from Anambra state, Nigeria. Falling in love with music at the tender age of 14, the AfroSoul and AfroPop artist.
In 2019, he released his debut project ‘NINETY9′. A project that gained over 100,000 plays across multiple streaming platforms, proof of his recognized talent. Niinety9 teased there is an EP on the way and further announced releasing the first single off the EP, Indecisive.
He traverses the simple yet delicate phase of “Love”, searching to understand the nitty-gritty of it. Fusing Afro-soul with buttered lyricism and alluring harmonies, Niintey9 delivers a stimulating body of work. The first track “Indecisive” is a love story that is both-sided and shows the full vulnerability of a man to a woman giving off mixed emotions and uncertainty about their relationship, while the last track ‘Bad Trips” is about connecting with inner feelings, reminiscing, and taking accountability.
Deftly melding R&B and Afrosoul, Bodied Soul melodically captures Niinety9’s penchant for rhythmic fusion. Exploring the emotions associated with journeying through love, the crooner relays experiences of commitment, betrayal and forgiveness. Sandwiched between the uncertainties of “Indecisive” and romantic misadventures of “Bad Trips”, the summery “Everything” and sultry, Olupellar-featuring “For You” declare an unyielding allegiance to romance.
