nigeria underrated artists
There is no better way to spit this out, but some very talented Nigerian artistes have been blatantly underrated and it hurts. Again, it's may be a little difficult to place, the reason why their talents and hardwork doesn't meet with commensurate recognition and applause. From time to time...
adekunle gold and olamide
Definitely,  Olamide has been one huge inspiration to many Nigerian youths out there. His story is the type that makes you believe that almost anything is achievable if you go after it with grit and fervour. Everyone likes to hear that sort of "Started from the bottom now we...

By all accounts it's been a relatively quiet year for a lot of hip-hop acts in Nigeria. The likes of SDC, MI, Kahli Abdu, Terry Tha Rapman haven't put out much of material this past year, and it's left room for some of the new comers to really do their....

We're right at the end of the year, and a really good time to look back at the albums that completely rocked in 2015. It's been a strange and lopsided year actually with majority of the good albums coming later in the year. We counted over 30 albums that were...
