Stunnah Gee ‘International Girl’ impact date 8th December

The long-awaited club banger from AfroBeats all-star Stunnah Gee entitled International Girl is now available! The track has the slick production style and distinctive vocals fans have come to know and love from Stunnah Gee. International Girl features a glossy, fun music video aimed at empowered women of all cultures. Produced by the talented and prolific producer P2j, the song centres around Stunnah’s description of a special lady in his life; being a goddess in his view, with her best features originating from cultures around the globe.

“I’m inspired by women in general, but I wanted to appreciate ladies from all around the world. What is different from anything I’ve done before is that this song has a very international-pop feel. It’s a different sound, it’s a different style. I can’t wait for my fans to hear it!” Stunnah Gee

Despite the success of his previous hit single Dengeme (Remix) featuring BET award nominee & Sony signed afrobeat legend Davido, Stunnah Gee’s follow up single International Girl looks set to eclipse Dengeme’s impact and establish Stunnah Gee as an global star. International Girl adopts an internationally accessible direction, blending AfroBeats, pop, moombahton with a touch of reggae. Stunnah Gee is best known by the music he released over the last 3 years which criss-crosses the African continent and cuts through the music genre that is now known as AfroBeats.

Stunnah Gee, also known as Felix Olajide Omolafe, takes inspiration from a unique blend of western influences and legendary west African musical heavyweights such as Fela Kuti, Fuse ODG & William Oneyearbor. Stunnah Gee briefly relocated to Nigeria in 2015 and quickly became part of the new wave of Afrobeat stars. However, he became frustrated by the lack of available structured pathways to commercial success and returned to the UK with a vision. He wants to share his music and shape the afrobeat music industry to ensure new talent doesn’t go unheard in the future.
