After teasing us with an image on social media, bearing the pictures of artists like Davido, Wizkid, Banky W, Reminisce and Tekno on a chess board, we now realize that it is the cover art for CDQ‘s “Fine Boys”.
Sodiq Abubaker Yusuf aka CDQ is a Nigerian street-flavored rapper. The indigenous artiste, CDQ started his music career professionally in 2008 as a back-up singer for Da Grin.
He later started rapping in English language with M.I. In 2012, he contested and won a rap battle at the weekly Industry Nite and soon signed a record deal with Masterkraft General Records.
The Masterkraft-produced song brought CDQ‘s career to limelight and earned him two nomination spots at the 2015 Nigeria Entertainment Awards and a nomination in the Best Street-Hop Artist category at The Headies 2015.
In anticipation of his debut studio album “Quality”, CDQ made notable collaborations with artistes like Wizkid on “Nowo E Soke”, as a lead single off the album. The music video for the song was directed by Unlimited L.A and went on to win the Best Afro Hip Hop Video category at the 2016 edition of the Nigeria Music Video Awards.
On 11 November 2016, he launched his own record label No Struggle No Success (N.S.N.S) Entertainment. On 1 Feb 2017, he dropped his first official single under the platform titled “Say Baba” which was produced by Jay Pizzle and has gone on to make several more collaborations.
“Fine Boyz” is a certified potential chart topper and is guaranteed to get you off your seats and dancing into the new week.
