Daily Nation Newspaper - - Entertainment News - By TER­ENCE MISELO

POP­U­LAR Zam­bian house mu­sic DJ and pro­ducer El Mukuka has re­leased an of­fi­cial remix for the song “IRE” by Nige­rian singer-song­writer Adekunle Gold. Ar­guably one of the best con­tem­po­rary Nige­rian artistes, Adekunle Gold is one of EL Mukuka’s fol­lowed and cher­ished mu­si­cians the rea­son he has made his ‘’IRE” song his first re­lease for 2019. “The be­gin­ning of the year marks the per­fect mo­ment for me to re­mind my fans about the beauty of life with a rich and up­lift­ing remix that fuses my sig­na­ture trop­i­cal sound with high­life mu­sic and the pow­er­ful Adekunle Gold lyrics,” Mukuka says. “IRE” is his first col­lab­o­ra­tion with a Nige­rian artiste and pays homage to Adekunle Gold’s mean­ing­ful mes­sage with a mu­sic video show­ing that true hap­pi­ness lies within and can be found right “at home”. El Mukuka and Adekunle Gold do not just share the same life phi­los­o­phy, which is ex­em­pli­fied not only in this song but through­out Adekunle Gold’s much-ac­claimed al­bum “About 30” and most of El Mukuka’s work, they also share the same mu­si­cal vi­sion. “The goal for both my­self and Adekunle Gold is to make African mu­sic pop­u­lar across the globe and cre­ate time­less songs,” says EL Mukuka. The artiste has earned a place in the in­ter­na­tional house scene with var­i­ous iTunes, Spo­tify and ter­res­trial ra­dio chart rank­ings in Spain, Ar­gentina, Es­to­nia and Zam­bia as well as mil­lions of streams world­wide. He has per­formed at some of the big­gest fes­ti­vals in Sub-Sa­ha­ran Africa while also shar­ing the stage with A-List African and in­ter­na­tional acts such as Black Cof­fee, Mi Casa, Gold­fish, Alok and Stim­ming. As a beloved celebrity in Zam­bia, he en­dorses dif­fer­ent lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional brands, and is the face of the premium Bel­gian beer Stella Ar­tois.
