I know some of you are probably thinking, "what can I possibly learn from that wack guy, Vic O?" Well there's quite a bit you can learn. Aside all the killing of beats and giving it to fans to eat, Vic O found a way to stay pretty popular...
We at Jaguda try to be positive most times. We hear and see a lot of crap music and videos, and just keep unlooking. You know... let it not be like we are trouble makers, but every so often we're inspired beyond the regular unlooking mode by some straight...
First there was Dorobucci, then came Oga Titus, followed by Jantamanta and most recently, Mungo Park. What do all these songs have in common apart from the fact that they were all released by Mavin records artistes? You could call them ‘corny’ and you won’t be wrong.Don Jazzy is...
top nigerian songs 2016
Dozens of Nigerian songs are released everyday, and we know it can be crazy trying to decipher what songs to listen to, and which ones to trash. Data and space are not cheap jare so no need to being overly generous with it. In 2016 alone we estimate over...
Where do you place your favourite rapper; is he or she rapping or yapping? We are not going to delve into origins or who owns what and what type of rap(s) there is, but we will first agree that rap means rhythmically applied poetry (RAP). With that out the...
kpangolo music
You can call it kpangolo music, jollof music, disposable, microwave, or timkpa music. We all know what you're referring to. The type of songs that are released, promoted, and killed in about 6 months. If there's a really good one the lifespan might get to 9 months, but that's...
who you epp
Ever since Olamide dropped his track Who You Epp, and announced his freestyle contest, the hip-hop world in Nigeria has been buzzing seriously. It almost seems like everyone is dropping a verse or two on the sick beat produced by Shizzi. From those trying to win the contest, to the...
In the past few years the term crossover has been used repeatedly by Nigerian artists on interviews and on their social media space. This crossover is used to describe the transition of a Nigerian musician to become an International/American artiste. In crossing over the Nigerian music will not only...
When Folarin Falana aka Falz named his album Stories That Touch, many didn’t see the pulse behind it, but with the recent release of Soldier video, he is once again whipping up sentiments from even the stone-hearted. It is one of the most democratic videos ever to be shot...
For every big artist in Nigeria there are possibly a million other unknown aspiring Nigerian musicians. From the thousands of students in different universities both in Nigeria and abroad trying to either be like Kiss Daniel or Davido to the upcoming guys in different ghettos trying also to break...
falz soldier video
Falz's video for his album cut, Soldier hit the net earlier today, and if the country's reaction is anything like ours then that video will be on repeat for a very long time. It's almost like watching a short movie that's long enough to really tell a story, but short...
nigerian hip-hop
I’ll never forget the moment I actually fell in love with hip-hop. It was that fateful day when I was home from school, watching Yo! MTV Raps on our newly installed ABG cable box in Jos, and Warren G & Nate Dogg’s 'Regulate' came on. It was the first hip-hop...
Yemi Alade is set to release her highly anticapted sophomore album Mama Africa, and she has made the big proclaimation in the album title. Big shoes to live up to.The album tracklist is out already, and the project which will be released on March 26th, 2016 is already available...
video
I think it's safe to say that Rihann's Work video which features Drake has been the most talked about video for the past week. There really any other video worth talking about right now, and sorry for those who dropped their videos on the same day.Anyhoo, after watching the...
With Peter Okoye of P-Square going on a rant about wanting to part ways with his brother, Jude Okoye (who has managed him), we figured it's a good time to strike different musicians who at some point or another parted ways with their family members who managed them.It's definitely...
The question rouses the rhetoric: Which of our artists is ready for the Grammy? Femi Kuti’s musical prowess and energy is undeniably a force that cuts through industries, and his longevity is very well worth noting also. His sound creativity - the Afrobeat, cannot be disputed and hence his...
