“Cruising Outwest: The podcast” is a podcast run by two friends in two countries.
We record virtually and discuss music and pop cultures that are related to the African diaspora as a whole.
S2E7: God dey share talent ft. Chuka Obi
This week we sat down with who we’d like to describe as an all-round creative - Chuka Obi, also known as DaSuki to those who are familiar with his music. Chuka has been involved in the branding of different companies including Pepsi, Johnnie Walker, Guiness and more. We talk about his work on Burna Boy’s Twice as tall, the Grammy win that came with it, advertising in Nigeria, his top Nigerian rappers, and more. We also learn about his journey as a creative and his most notable advert.
Chuka, a.k.a DaSuki also talks to us about his music journey and his recently released album, “Blackgodzilla” - a feel good, golden age vibe, which is named after the producers of the project: Black Intelligence, Illgod & amphibious, and TeckZilla. All the tracks are cleverly themed after the numbers they represent on the track list.
S2E6: I Fly, But I Still Dey Streets ft. Moelogo
On this episode we are joined by the amazing singer/songwriter, Moelogo. We discuss his journey as an artist existing in both the Nigerian and British industry, his love for songwriting and his recent win at The Headies (making him the first Nigerian in diaspora to win at The Headies). We also discuss his upcoming EP titled ‘I’, coming out in May.

S2E5: "Nigerian Hip-Hop is ...."
In this episode, KP and Tobi celebrate the Grammy wins of Burna boy and Wizkid while giving shoutouts to other winners like Megan The Stallion, Beyonce and more. They also talk about Piers Morgan’s response to the Harry and Megan interview, Nigeria’s music recording certification (RCNigeria) and more. We went back and forth with each other because a certain someone said that “Nigerian Hip-Hop is m*d.”
S2E4: "Cruising Outwest Vs The Headies"
In our latest episode, KP shared his recent COVID scare. They shared their thoughts on the NBC banning Ric Hassani’s song, “Thunder fire you”, alongside commentary on the entrance of Spotify into Nigeria and Stan Culture in relation to Laycon. They also got into the 14th Headies award show, calling them out on what might have been the worst headies yet. The gang also turned fashion police, comically stating that “it must be cold in Laygurzz”, since the guests were wearing winter jackets.
S2E3: Valentine Came, Where Was Your Boyfriend?
The original gang is back. In this episode, we speak on Valentine’s day and people’s shenanigans while playing the game “say it or shot it”.
