Let me ask this question. Is there anybody who is vaguely interested in Nigerian music, who doesn’t know Olamide Adedeji, the self-styled baddo? All the way from Eni Duro, First Of All, Turn Up, Durosoke, to Goons Mi, Skelemba, Melo Melo and Bobo. No, there wouldn’t be any, I...
 Someone was allegedly reported to have tweeted “Recession is just a word”, a few weeks back. While the veracity of that tweet is in question, financial experts can better breakdown that term RECESSION, and it is not just a fancy lexicon. That word typifies “hard times”, paucity of cash,...

Can you imagine popular Nigerian artistes like sultry Tiwa Savage as a banker, hilarious Falz as a seasoned Barrister or maybe think of Eldee as a prolific architect? Besides being famous for their music and arts, some very popular Nigerian artistes hold various university degrees that bear sharp contrast...
Tekno
Tekno is an unapologetic serial radio assassin, since his highly successful hit “Duro”. Like a very menacing terrorist, he launches well orchestrated assaults at intervals on the airwaves wrecking serious havoc. Assuming you earned a badge with a little tick embedded for being a hit maker, am sure Tekno...

It baffles me when very respectable Nigerian artistes who have made a name for themselves resort to cheap copy work to score a hit. Could it be the absence of creativity, poor copyright laws or outright laxity? Some Nigerian artistes  throw out songs which eerily reminds us of a...

nigerian hip-hop

The 2000’s began with a bang. The turn of the century was characterized by mass hysteria, conspiracy theories, doomsday predictions and the in-coming of a throng of fresh, original music from musicians who would go on to make their mark on the music scene and history. It was the heart...
“Ahem hum”, if your MILF crush is Tiwa Savage don’t worry she wasn’t born in the 90’s. Ojére, age is just a number sha, isn’t it? There’s no crime if you prefer older woman like Nick Cannon or Aston Kutcher.Aside being a melodious singer with great display of energy,...

nollywood music
