Prosperity Movement

On July 14, 2015, the world was greeted by the rhythms from an artful compilation of Reggae-Urban World fusion with the release of ‘Prosperity Movement’, a beautifully crafted EP from the record label of the same name. Prosperity Movement was made for the urban traveler. From Oakland, California, to the rest of the world, WolfHawkJaguar and Osunfemi Wanbi Njeri travel through the beauty, love and prosperity of our urban world culture. Their album features five lyrical compilations that fuse Reggae, Orisa, Hip Hop, and Rhythm and Blues. With songs like ‘Ile’ (Hold Tight), ‘Sounds of My Heart’, ‘House of the Rising Sun’, ‘Real Africans’, and ‘Movement’, the Prosperity Movement EP contains thoughtful lyrics and comes across as a breath of fresh air in today’s burgeoning Bay Area music scene. 

‘Ile’ is a Yoruba word meaning house. Our house is comprised of family, friends, and like minded individuals tuned into what’s going on in the world. ‘Ile’ calls for strength and unity in these perils times. Prosperity Movement believes this, too, shall pass with constant elevation of I, YOU, WE to claim our victory. The universe helps those that help themselves. Hold tight Ile, Asè.

WolfHawkJaguar is preparing to release his critically acclaimed film/album ‘Search For The Everlasting Coconut Tree’, fresh off the April 2015 performance and film screening at Harvard University for the Spiritual Soundscape Conference. The film chronicles the journey of musician and mentor WolfHawkJaguar on his quest from Oakland, California to Ile Ife, Nigeria to find answers to some of life’s burning questions. He journeys with his crew, The Band of Hunters, to perform at The Orisa World Congress, and gets the chance to connect with something larger than self. Meanwhile, Osunfemi Wanbi Njeri will release her highly anticipated EP ‘Warrior Woman’ this fall. Heavily influenced by music greats like Stevie Wonder, Lauryn Hill, and India Arie, Osunfemi Wanbi Njeri creates music that uplifts, inspires and moves the people. Her first EP, ‘From Oakland With Love’, was released in 2013 under her previous name, ‘Isoké Custom Designs’.
