Mamacita was produced by Nigeria’s own Masterkraft and since its release, it has been trending on Audiomack and has been added to some of Apple music’s biggest playlists such as Today’s Hits (Apple Music Pop), Amapiano Lifestyle (Apple Music Dance), Naija Hits (Apple Music African), and many more.
“There is an artwork in Masterkraft’s studio of an African woman, we saw that artwork which brought Mamacita in my head. That artwork inspired the whole song. It was a fantasy about this strong African woman who could come change my life and bring some balance to it. When you listen to the lyrics you will understand the role Mamacita is playing in the life of Afro Cyborg. Mamacita is helping Afro Cyborg to discover another part of himself which is that of strength. That’s the power of Mamacita…” – Mr Dutch
Afro Cyborg is the fictional discovery of Mr Dutch and the title to his upcoming debut project. Afro Cyborg is discovering the different side of you, the fictional part of you that simply says you can do and become whatever you want to be. The video was directed by Nigerian director, Aje and he was able to bring a snippet of the Afro Cyborg vision to life.
“I want people to see themselves in a different form, I want people to understand that some part of us is yet to be discovered and only with the right energy, the right vibe, right place and the right time will we be shown this super magnificent part of us. The mechanism of bringing out the powerful strong African Man and Woman is what the video showcases and the magical powers we all have to change our life…” – Mr Dutch
