Uplifted is the second studio album by Nigerian singer Flavour N'abania. It was released on July 20, 2010, by Obaino Music and 2nite Entertainment. The album features guest appearances from Jay Dey, Oloye, Stormrex, Waga Gee, Asemstone, M-Jay, V.I.P and Elense.[1] It was supported by four singles: "Nwa Baby" (Ashawo Remix), "Oyi (I Dey Catch Cold)", "Adamma" and "Odiro Easy".

Background[edit]

Flavour started recording the album after releasing his debut LP, N'abania (2005). He produced three songs on the album; "Oyi (I Dey Catch Cold)", "Chinedum", and the techno-infused "Kjumanj". Uplifted explores the genres of highlife, hip hop, reggae, dancehall, calypso and R&B. The album was recorded in Igbo, English, and Nigerian 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 well received in Nigeria, South Africa, and Botswana.[3]

Singles[edit]

"Oyi (I Dey Catch Cold)" was released as the album's second single. The dance track "Adamma" was released as the third single from the album. There were two music videos released for "Adamma". The second video was shot in South Africa by Godfather Productions; it was uploaded onto YouTube on October 6, 2011.

Critical reception[edit]

Onyinye Muomah said the artists featured on the album were subpar, but positively stated that Flavour "manages to shine while incorporating new genres to his original kind of music".[4]
