Once again welcome to October, last month September was pretty dull, the music industry was in a bit of a slumber. A few things are worthy of note during that month. First was the release of Reekado Banks much awaited debut album “Spotlight”. Unofficial reports of Wizkid signing a multi-million dollar deal with Sony Music. Also, Davido and MC Galaxy respectively had their songs “Skelewu” and “Sekem” feature on Walt Disney movie titled Queen of Kwate. Still talking Davido, the singer who is signed to Sony Music has made a return to the music scene with his EP, S.O.M (Son Of Mercy). Anyways, as usual lots of songs were birth in their numbers. Quickly I will countdown all the most memorable hits from the month of September.
Now the countdown
• Orezi – Call The Police
Thumps up on this one Orezi, aka Mr Raggamofin, I dey look that Raggamofin name one kind sha. That aside, just before September came to a close Orezi blessed his fans with this massive dancehall tune on the countdown. If you have not gotten that song yet on your playlist, you have to, your megabytes will not be wasted trust me. Orezi came with his A-game to match Mystro’s sleek production.
• Davido – Gbagbe Oshi
Oh ye fans of Davido, your guy is back. Davido and Shizzi make magic and Gbagbe Oshi is the sh*t, you gonna like. This is instant banger is lifted off his S.O.M project; this shows OBO has not lost touch on how to make a Nigerian hit. You should play this on a good sound system, please don’t use some wack speakers that will be so petty.
• Korede Bello – Do Like That
Okay, Korede Bello makes the countdown register with his Altims’ produced track Do Like That. Though the track might seem like a sister to his 2015 hit “Romantic”. The baba of jerry curls showed he is a bad boy – winks* – on this one. With lines like “baby feed me don’t be stingy”…”You bend like sey you wan greet your mummy”. Cop it, play it for bae, it’s a winner.
• Reekado Banks – Problem
Problem is a stand out track from Reekado Banks debut album, a song that adores the female butt. The singer acknowledges the female’s behind is a “stumbling block” even spiritual men have lost faith. The lyrics are sparse enough to let the thumping beats sink in the message, and also trigger an unsuspecting nod from the listener. Kudos to Babyfresh on this one.
• Sean Tizzle – Hit n Run
Sean Tizzle decides to stage a comeback with Hit n Run after a bit of break. Hit n Run is a typical R&B song featuring buzzing Canadian singer Tory Lanez. We never saw this collabo coming until it hit us. A pretty decent effort by Sean Tizzle, the song has been gaining alotta buzz from Nigeria and beyond. Ladies and Gentlemen I recommend this for your listening pleasure.
• P-Square – Bank Alert
Singing duo of Peter and Paul Okoye, ended their social media tantrum, family squabble and got into the studio to make some music. After studying the new music trend, they crafted out “Bank Alert”. 1 million views in 5 days for “Bank Alert” video is an open record for any Nigerian music video to surpass. This tune is a palliative in this recession. Play it, feel good as you anticipate your bank alert.
• Joe El – Do Good
Kennis Music finest Joe El dropped a pretty nice feel good song produced by Solshyne & Fiokee. The music is well crafted, conscious and yet very groovy. As Nigeria hits 56 as a country we all need to “Do Good”. Do yourself some good by listening to this jam.
Give Them: Chocolate City Music act Koker came back to give them some more fire. Koker is doing what he knows how to do best with “Give Them”.
