Talented South African singer-songwriter Tellaman has announced the release of a new single.
Described as an Afro love song the track, CROSS MY HEART produced by Select_Play, features rising star Alpha P, best known for his King of the Wolves EP and unique blend of vocal driven trap. Though he is still new on the scene Alpha P has an unforced confidence that surrounds him, drawing in his listeners attention.
Without giving much away, singer, songwriter and producer Tellaman says the single –which he co-wrote with Alpha P and crowned Yung – celebrates love and the people we love, describing it as “true, honest and one of best songs I’ve ever created”. CROSS MY HEART was directed and filmed by Naya Effects on the popular water sports beach of Tarkwa Bay Nigeria during his trip to Lagos in November where he performed at The sixth annual All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA).
There is no doubt in Tellaman’s mind that he was meant to make music and, if he had to choose a different career, he believes he would still be working in the industry. “I’d be a mixing/mastering engineer. It is something I fell in love with before I even became a performing artist. I just love the process of finding problems, fixing them, and helping other musicians improve their sound.”
While he hardly ever takes times off from making music, he does make an effort to pursue other interests. “I’ve always loved film and photography, so that’s something I have been working on and trying to improve,” he says.
Tellaman is renowned for his versatility, universal sound and relatable lyrics, and CROSS MY HEART FT. ALPHA P, like the rest of his music, promises to impress.

Idahams Drops Remix to “Shima” Featuring Seyi Shay and Peruzzi
In the last year, we have seen Nigerian singer, songwriter and producer Idahams grow into the Lover man that girls adore, following his last project ‘Man on Fire EP’. Now he is back with a remix to his Valentine ballad ‘Shima’ featuring Seyi Shay and Peruzzi.
Produced by Idahams himself, “Shima Remix” maintains the message of the original song about a young lover who is skeptical about showing his true emotion to his love interest while Peruzzi was more demanding and expressive about what he wanted from his love interest. Seyi Shay at the other end, takes on the Bonnie & Clyde vibe as she stands by her partner, while holding back so she is not taken for granted in the long run.
Speaking on the choice of collaboration Idahams says, “As a producer as well as a singer it gives me a little edge to view music a bit differently. So I thought Shima deserved a remix that will have a male expression and a female response. So I spoke with my team and we agreed that Seyi Shay and Perruzi will give it that touch. We then sent it to them and they loved it and see how beautiful they came through on it.”
