Slam Returns with Sweeter

ALMOST a decade after he took the Nigerian music industry by storm, Udoka Oguamanam popular known as Slam, is back with a new song titled ‘Sweeter.’

The singer came into limelight with the critically acclaimed single Ibu Chineke released on the Kennis Music label. The dancehall crooner also had other hit-topping tunes such as Dreaming About You and Party On.


In Sweeter, Slam who is known for the pop and R & B sounds featured Rhymzo, a reggae maestro and together they created a delightful dancehall tune. In characteristic Slam style, it is a masterful blend of high energy, rich lyrics and top quality production that will keep audiences on the dance floor.

Sweeter is based on a true life experience. According to the Slam: “I want everybody to always be true to that special someone because when all else goes you will realize that that person is sweeter than anything you ever had. This is a major hit among other hit songs that I will be releasing soon. I am also looking to have a couple of great collaborations as well.”

Following the successful launch of three albums, Slam left Nigeria at the height of his music career in 2005 to pursue a Masters degree in Marketing in the United Kingdom. He later explained that he never entirely left music during the period as he occasionally played in clubs around the UK and even Holland.

“After my studies in the UK, I decided to develop other aspects of myself, though I was still involved in a lot of music projects behind the scenes. For instance, I produced sound tracks for top Nollywood movies such as I’ll Take My Chances by Emem Isong; Holding Hope which featured Uche Jumbo; Kiss and Tell by Monalisa Chinda; Okon In Lagos by Uduak Isong Oguamanam and many more,” he said.
