Vector has returns after successful release of “Crossroads”to bless our ears and minds with this new project dubbed “The African Mind” EP directed by AISOSA and produced and Rotex.
The project which premiered on 11th June 2020 touches on everything African as Vector analyses what the average African faces regardless of age, gender, and status. Vector speaks from a place of critical thinking, stating the obvious and constantly reiterating what the people complain and fight for every day.
In the first track “Rape“, he expresses his concern as to how society expects people who have been abused maltreated and violated as they keep quiet. The project further emphasises not only His mind but about rape, he talks about Africans and their deafening silence about the ills of the society paints an image of a tired human, someone who has seen it all and constantly seeks change.
