Nenagh musician celebrates love
Nemagh musician Bubba Shakespeare and Meath producer FOB have teamed up to bring you an upbeat Pop/Garage/Rap track titled ‘Celebrate Love’.
Designed to bring some positive vibes in a time where it feels much needed, this is Bubba (Cian Morris)'s first single release of 2021. After a period of examination of the ‘Shadow Self’ and the role of the modern man, Bubba decided it was time to fall in love with his light and embrace it.
‘Celebrate Love’ is a masculine expression of femininity; in other words it’s a man celebrating emotion and healthy sexual desire with lyrics such as - “Love is the way, Love is the key, Love is the joy that we all want to be’’ - and “I love to get it on, love to make you... I love to speak in tongues”.
Bubba believes there is nothing wrong with healthy desire. After all, none of us would be here without it. Written as a message of love rather than a derogatory one, ‘Celebrate Love’ is upbeat, catchy and designed to make you move.
A pioneering singer/rapper who started out in his hometown in 2005, Bubba says he was born to add value and show you why you are class! He moved from Nenagh to Cork in 2009 and has been a staple in the Cork hip-hop scene for over a decade.
Bubba is known for promoting rap ‘as Gaeilge’ and the Irish Examiner noted how he “takes pride in performing in his own accent”. A Broadsheet.ie review referred to the Nenagh artist “taking cues from Plato”.
Bubba spent his time in Cork developing his craft, performing extensively and tending to his inner garden. In 2019 he released an EP titled ‘Understanding My Shadow’.
This represents a lifetime of growth, not only as an artist but as a man. He overcame addiction, stared suicide in the face and turned that poison into medicine by channeling these struggles through his art.
‘Celebrate Love’ is the next chapter. Bubba is an established front man in the Irish cover scene, host for The Labtv Ireland Facebook page and YouTube channel, and a stand-up comedian, having won the Comedy Cavern Comedian of The Year title in 2017.
Bubba is also a playwright, having performed ‘Understanding My Shadow (The Play)’ at First Fortnight. His musical influences include The Streets, Eminem, Akala, Lil Dicky, MGK, JyellowL and Kojaque.
You can find Bubba on Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon, and many more where ‘Celebrate Love’ is now available to listen to.
