Background[edit]

Flavour began recording Uplifted after debuting his first album, N'abania. The album is composed of contemporary highlife and a blend of hip hop, reggae and R&B sounds. The songs on the album were written in Igbo, English, and Pidgin.[2] While recording Uplifted, Flavour believed it would break the national and cultural barriers that often diminishes the value of Music in Africa. The album was a huge success on the continent of Africa, particularly in Nigeria, South Africa, and Botswana.[3]

Promotion[edit]

Flavour promoted the album via his Twitter and Facebook accounts. He uploaded a Behind the Scenes Video of "Oyi Remix" onto his YouTube page.

Singles[edit]

"Oyi (I Dey Catch Cold)" was released as a single from the album. According to the music video's synopsis, it is "a love song about how lonely he gets when he's not with the woman of his dreams. Flavour on this track has proven that he is not only specialized in high life music but can also sing songs that can touch the heart of decent and beautiful women." Official Music Video on YouTube

"Adamma" was released as another single from the album. There were two music videos released for "Adamma". According to the first music video's synopsis, "Adamma is a kind of song dedicated to the woman of your dreams, the kind of woman you'd want to spend the rest of your life with. Here Flavour is saying that his woman is the one that everybody out there wants to be with, very beautiful, appealing to the parents, an African beauty. Adamma is a dance track that will keep you to your feet dancing." The second music video was shot in South Africa by Godfather Productions; it was uploaded onto YouTube on October 6, 2011. According to the video's synopsis, "Flavour sheds more light on the track "Adamma". The song talks about the African woman, her beauty and the attention she gets which is very evident in the video, thanks to the well ENDOWED lady in focus. The king of high life is doing bigger things as he serves his millions of fan the remake video for Adamma." The second Official Music Video on YouTube
