In the whimsical realm of wonder, where Afrobeat, Afro swing, and Amapianao melodies intertwine, a remarkable tale unfolds. Enter Tommy Tomad, a singer and songwriter hailing from the enchanting town of Louth. He stands at the forefront of a musical revolution, championing a wondrous sub-genre known as Afro Rng (rhythm and groove), alongside his faithful crew, TFCLIQUE. Together, they weave a spellbinding tapestry of sound.

Reflecting on the mystical creative process, Tommy Tomad whimsically shared, "We embarked on a whimsical recording camp, where days melded into dreams. A gathering of my artist and producer friends filled the air with creativity. Soundchef, the musical sorcerer, conjured a bewitching beat, which caught my fancy. 'Maltina' sprouted from a freestyle, a captivating melody that clung to our hearts, and we surrendered to its magical flow. Then, Json appeared like a musical sprite, adding a kaleidoscope of melodies to our enchanting brew."
