ISAH The Prince is a Nigerian born rapper, performing artiste, record producer and entrepreneur. His sound is characterized by a blend of Hip-Hop, R&B, Soul and Afro-Pop with bold lyricism and clever wordplay. ISAH uses unique elements (instrumentation, traditional vocal samples), raw emotion and personal experiences to pass his thoughtful messages across to listeners citing JAY Z, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Sade, Whitney Houston, Prince & Michael Jackson as major influences on his musical sound.
In 2019, ISAH released his debut album Purple Heart which was produced solely by Suté Iwar and featured several artists like Dami Oniru, AYLØ, Ogranya, Suté Iwar and others. Flower Child/Hibiscus was a standout track making it into Apple Music’s Alté Cruise playlist, garnering over 100,000 streams across all platforms and receiving some radio play. ISAH headlined his first show A Purple Celebration at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja with 200 guests in attendance.
In 2020, ISAH had a busy year as he released an EP titled Purple Journal (which spawned the single Toxic that made it to Apple Music’s New Music Daily playlist), a short film; Flower Child and 3 commercial mixtapes; SARDAUNA Vol. 1 Maktub, Life Happens & The Bigger Picture; with Life Happens being listed amongst the Top Rap Albums of 2020 by Pulse Nigeria.
In November 2021, ISAH released his second studio album NEW BLACK ELITE which is deemed as the required evolution and elevation of the African/Black consciousness expressed through art. The album is a multi-dimensional creative experience consisting of multiple forms of art merged into one (chiefly music, film, art, poetry and fashion).
I am driven by a desire to create works of art that elevate the African perspective, that enables us Africans to rise above the beliefs that hold us back as a people in order to build a unified Africa. My mission is to spread truth through creative storytelling by using different creative outlets to inspire the next generation to aim at being their highest possible selves - ISAH The Prince
