“Purpleville” – Duncan Daniels

Duncan Daniels paints a beautifully melodic mural of his Nigerian roots in “Purpleville.” You can feel Daniels’ hypnotic, passionate energy all throughout this afropop-laced song. Daniels takes us listeners on a lyrical journey, weaving verses that dance between nostalgia and celebration. With a swagger predating the Instagram era, Duncan demands respect for his journey, showing off and showing out how he authentically feels in his vocals. The Ara Muzicc Choir adds a soulful layer, harmonizing with Duncan’s narrative. “Purpleville” transcends music; it’s a sonic memoir, a proclamation of evolution, and a celebration of Port Harcourt’s indomitable spirit. Duncan Daniels throws his hands in the sky, daring the world to feel the vibrant pulse of Purpleville.
