However beginning in 2017, they discovered a manner round that to interrupt their glass ceiling. They started to make music for the center with content material dipped in ‘wash,’ (love songs), a coronary heart of gold and the embodiment of Hip-Hop. Though completely rapping in English, they’d the potential to enchantment to common Nigerians.
Led by the mercurial Spax, they discovered a sound that is completely constructed on African people music lower from the ‘chill and unwind cloth’ and termed it ‘palmwine music.’ Though they nonetheless stay very area of interest, they now have a sub-mainstream enchantment and following. The individuals who love Present Dem Camp do not simply love them, they dwell that love and cherish the chance of seeing them.
Typically in 2018, Tec and Ghost got here to Pulse Nigeria for an interview to advertise Palmwine Music II. As they had been within the studio, sure girls pointed fingers as they handed by the studio that had a clear glass barricade. On their manner out, an worker of Ringier Nigeria who was on the rooftop scream the strains, “It is as much as you, I am so prepared…”
She was smiling and was engrossed in her act as she clutched her chest and smile. On the finish, she waved and requested if a Palmwine Fest could be held in December 2018. The occasion held and by 2019, the fan base continues to develop.
On December 29, 2019, Present Dem Camp held the third version of Palmwine Fest at Muri Okunola Park, Victoria Island, Lagos. They had been aided by their colleagues like Tems, YCee, Vector tha Viper, Ajebutter22, BOJ, Moelogo, Nonso Amadi, LADIPOE, Tomi Thomas, ZAMIR and so forth. Additionally they boasted an intensive vary of opening acts.
Whereas the occasion itself struggled with boring patches that didn’t convey enjoyment for the typical music lover, the Present Dem Camp heads had the time of their lives. Whereas talking with Adeyemi Adesanya, an attendee who can also be an on-air persona, he advised me that, ” had fun. SDC can by no means disappoint me… That Tems although; chai!!!”

The group and development of the present may positively have been higher, however moments like when Ajebutter and BOJ got here on are what Palmwine Fest is absolutely about – the enjoyment of music and the appreciation of followers/music lovers.
