AfroCandy Artwork

Judith Mazagwu more commonly known as AfroCandy is a Nigerian talent who cannot be contained to one medium, with credits for acting, directing, modelling and as you will see today, she is also a singer-songwriter. Born in the Ikeduru Local government area of Imo State, her focus isn’t only on creative pursuits, in addition to starring in films such as Dwelling in Darkness and Sorrow, Dangerous Sisters, The Real Player and End Of The Game and being the founder and CEO of Invisible Twins Productions LLC she also has an an associate degree in Office Administration and a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management. Today I will be reviewing her debut single ‘Somebody Help Me’ which was released back in 2009.

‘Somebody Help Me’ has a tight synth toned, bassy intro, that has a whole lot of energy behind it, leading right into some awesome vocals, AfroCandy’s voice works really well, she is clear, her voice is strong and she is supported brilliantly by the harmonies from the backing vocals. I’m a sucker for a catchy tune and I know for a fact that this will be stuck in my head for the next few weeks. Especially for a first track by the artist this is a really impressive entry, it’s very raw and real, and it has a lot of personality behind it.

So that’s what I thought of AfroCandy’s single ‘Somebody Help Me’ and if you want to check that out for yourself then head on over to Soundcloud. While you’re at it make sure and support the artist by following them on Facebook and Twitter.
