illi News/10015444

CHICAGO - April 23, 2019 - illiNews -- Singer and songwriter Peter Jericho released a video for his latest single "Influential" ft. Jabal. Influential is a up tempo dance anthem that celebrates the accomplishments and apparent influence that Africans and African Americans have on the world. Peter and Jabal lace the verses and chorus with a commanding blend of french, english and pidgin chants starting with  "attention, tout le monde" (attention everyone). The video was shot in Houston Texas.

Dj ATM, the Cameroonian producer from Germany & Grammy Award winning producer Toxic, cooked up the track which combines traditional African music inspired by American hip hop, dance and soul. "Influential" may be easily identified as Afrobeats, the fastest growing music genre fueled from Lagos, Nigeria.

Peter has a unique style of his own. He was born to a Cameroonian family in Illinois, and also lived in different parts of Africa including Senegal and Cameroon for 11 years. Growing up on Chicago's westside but grounded in African tradition, Peter had an opportunity to experience life and culture from both perspectives. "I have influences from from gospel and American music along with traditional African music like Makossa and Bikutsi and with that wide range of sound I constructed something I can call my own" says peter on his musical style.
