On her own – without the muscle of a promotional or publicity campaign – Nigerian-American singer-songwriter-poet Offiong Bassey let her captivating self-titled debut album trickle out earlier this year, which surprised by debuting on the CMJ New World Music chart at #2 and vaulted up to #4 on the SoulTracks album chart. Last month, the Boston Globe ran a full-page color feature that helped Bassey sellout her first concert at her hometown’s famed Scullers Jazz Club. The Boston Strong Nigerian’s Moonlit Media Group label will give the cross-cultural cornucopia of Afro-Peruvian, Nigerian Ekombi, R&B, jazz, gospel, funk, soul and hip hop songs that she wrote and co-produced an official release date — February 4th — that will be boosted by a marketing campaign.
