Nitefreak, &friends makes Tomorrowland Music debut with “Ike Onu”

African producer Nitefreak has officially released “Ike Onu,” a joint work featuring key vocal collaborator Phina Asa and Afro-house collective &friends. Marking the Zimbabwe native’s debut single under Tomorrowland’s record imprint, “Ike Onu,” meaning “Stronger Together” in the native African language of lgbo, is a smooth and soulful addition to Nitefreak’s five-year-spanning music catalog. Sharing on the lyrics of the track, Phina Asa explains,

“The idea behind this song was that I thought about the world today, and how it doesn’t look how it used to.  It’s getting more challenging  and complex, and in life we can’t thrive on our own without any help.  We need people to support us, push us, hold us accountable, and help us grow.

Nitefreak’s latest plays as a testament to the DJ’s status as one of the key leaders of the Afro Progressive House movement. Watch the official music video for “Ike Onu,” by Nitefreak, &friends, and Phina Asa, below.
