Soul-searching and refreshingly fresh, "Fast Lane" by Afro-Fusionist and Pan-African music artiste, Zizzy warms the heart with this soulful music composed to bring relief to distressed minds. Speaking to a young generation currently living in fast lanes, Zizzy connects to her listener's emotions with a well coordinated semi-acoustic melodious tune which captivates and serenades ones soul hypnotically.
Zizzy (real name: Vanessa Obiakor) is a mind-blowing singer/songwriter from Nigeria who also happens to be half Asian. Her global appeal which radiates strongly in her music, style and fashion, are breathtaking, inspiring and beautiful. Zizzy's sounds cut across various genres of music. Her ability to fuse varying genres of music together is ingenious. Zizzy is a world-star! Her interpretation of music is soulful, heartfelt and connects deeply with a younger and slightly older generation of music listeners who over the years have come to appreciate African music, art and culture.
Zizzy is the epitome of an empowered African woman. She is a certified member of the global Pan-African MOVEMENT of Music Unites Africa and a role model to young African girls and youth across Africa. "Fast Lane" is her first official music release in 5 years. Zizzy isn't new to the continental and global music scene. She's spent most of her sabbatical away from music experiencing life and rediscovering her love and passion for creating real music. Her ability to unite people together with her music is what makes this great rising talent such a remarkable prospect moving forward with the progression and globalization of Pan-African music.
In "Fast Lane", Zizzy talks about living a wild life filled with a care-free attitude and how destructive such a life can be. She uses her personal experiences to draw-in her listeners with a heartfelt performance and composition. The official video for "Fast Lane" which was shot in Lagos, Nigeria will be released worldwide in January 2017. Soulful-Melodic-Beautiful are but a few words that best describe this stunning artiste and her music.
There's a whole lot more amazing music coming out of Zizzy. Rumor has it that she's preparing to grace her loyal fans with a brand new single for a very dope and enlightening/healing song. We however won't spoil the surprise just yet, but we will say this; Zizzy is a gush of wind and a breath of fresh air in a stale and polluted music industry. Her refusal to follow the crowd has earned her great respect among music moguls here in Africa and across the global music industry.
