eLDee, Naeto C, M.I and Sound Sultan proclaim their pride in Nigeria with launch of 'Rep 4 Nigeria'.

Naija’s music elite are celebrating Nigeria’s 50th anniversary of independence with the release of Rep 4 Nigeria - a stunning new urban anthem which celebrates the proud spirit of modern Nigeria.
Penned by Nigerian rapper and producer, Eldee, Rep 4 Nigeria is an original composition that features contemporary stars Naeto C, M.I and Sound Sultan.

Commissioned by MTV base (DStv Channel 322) as part of the celebrations for Nigerian independence, Rep 4 Nigeria is a call for young Nigerians to 'rep' their country and their area with pride. Each of the artists involved wrote their own verse, with R&B artist and ‘Naija Ninja’ Sound Sultan writing and performing the infectiously
catchy ‘hook’ and chorus.


The music video for Rep 4 Nigeria was directed by video ace Clarence Peters and filmed on location in Lagos, featuring Eldee, Naeto C, M.I and Sound Sultan. The music video will premiere on MTV base (DStv
Channel 322) on Monday 4 October before going on exclusive, A-list rotation on MTV base, guaranteeing at least 30 spins a week for the stirring track.

Commented Alex Okosi, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, MTV Networks Africa, “MTV Networks Africa is thrilled to be the catalyst in the creation of Rep 4 Nigeria, a poignant and inspirational track that shows Nigerian artists affirming their pride and optimism in the 50th anniversary of their nation.”

Music fans can watch the music video of Rep 4 Nigeria or download the track free of charge at www.mtvbase.com from 4 October 2010.

"repping Naija" for life and they are ashamed of their true Naija accent? (except for sound sultan of course) who are they trying to kid? don't they know being naija is inside out and not outside in? don't they know that kids look up to them and if all they do is to dish out crappy accents then kids would do the same there by creating a boot-leg of accent society?
oh please they should shut up and rep 4 naija in their mannerisms then they can come talk to me.
