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...
grammy awards nigeria

MI Abaga just announced that he'll be dropping Illegal Music 3 this month, as well as another tape, Young Denzel. We decided that this will be a good time to reflect on the best songs MI Abaga has blessed us with.But in all honestly, selecting just 17, and finding...

These few months have been a hell of a buzz for me after I "visited" Cassper Nyovest in South Africa and the upcoming artistes all over Africa with my previous articles, 'Open Letter to Cassper Nyovest' and '7 Needs of Upcoming Artistes in Africa', respectively. I missed my flight...
Despite the daily increase in number and affordability to work with music persons in the African music industry, it's no surprise that upcoming artistes who have surfaced through music media have not been satisfactory to listeners and themselves. It's either they have poor quality products or couldn't find their...

Dear Cassper,It was over 2 weeks after the release of your 'refiloe' album before I got to hear it. I was unable to buy the album because of the local district I found myself in for this last few months of 2015. I haven't seen the album in this...
