Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

Jidenna Chief Dont Run
Jidenna’s creative impulse and charismatic classic man status with much loyalty to the two-piece suit has been soaring across continents. If he were a new sensation or a rookie in the game, we would have said he is the next best thing, but his hit singles had made it...
According to Idowu Koyenikan ,“At the end, someone or something always gives up. It's either you give up and quit or the obstacle or failure gives up and makes way for your success to come through". This quote can be related to Patoranking's journey in the music industry from...
Gold is considered to be the color of success and triumph. It is associated with abundance, value and elegance. The psychology of this color implies affluence, material wealth and extravagance. Simply put, Gold is beautiful (a known fact)and Mr Gold has been able to channel his creativity into a golden...
The recognition and respect of the great legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti, in the 8th second of the video is commendable. It’s like pouring libation on ancestral ground. Double thumbs up to Director Q for cinematic graphics. Dremo’s flow is fiery, after all he says, he’s ‘straight out of hell...
If anybody is still uncool about the little window given to Wizkid in Drake’s ‘One Dance’ citing the opportunity as a disrespect of his artistic prowess, let the latest hit Shabba put everything to rest. The star-studded song didn’t fall short of expectations as all the artists came with...
lindsey abudei album
If you aren't familiar with Nigerian songstress Lindsey Abudei, you'd be excused... for now anyways. Her music most times flies under the radar, and her personality is not one that always screams "look at me". However, her music, when given the proper attention, is pure magic. But for many fans...
While the Kardashians have been fighting to break the internet with their clinically enhanced bodies, an MC’s fight for greatness have fallen short of legendary to the claim of a living figure who sometimes endorse or at times, deny his sanctification of an assumed protege laying claims to his...
The tone was set once we heard "Another gbedu wey dey bust brain". And that's exactly what this one is. Gbedu wey dey bust brain.Following the huge success of his last single, Oluwa Ni, it only made sense that Reekado Banks linked back up with in house producer, Altims. And...
d'prince show me
It almost feels like musical groundhog day. A new tune comes from D'Prince and gets fans excited, but we're left disappointed once again with the same old generic sounds, lyrics, and chorus. It's amazing that we keep clicking play again and again.I listened to this track over and over,...
kiss daniel new era
If you were underestimating what Kiss Daniel would put out in the form of an album, then you're not alone. Kiss Daniel (real name Daniel Anidugbe) probably surprised a lot of peeps with his new album, New Era. Now let's get into the specifics.The album kicks off with a...
d'banj breaking news
D’Banj is an intelligent artist despite the negative criticism he received for leaving Don Jazzy and the famous Mo Hits Crew. But if you’re not here for the money then quit the game is a popular phrase artists across every genre have used to justify his/her business driven ambition....
Ajebutter22 - Bad Gang Ft. Falz
Who could be the most suitable candidate to be featured in a “Bad Gang” song other than the bahdt guy himself? This isn’t about Falz, but lately, he’s been featured on some conscious songs and he delivers through his signatory rotten English - to borrow Ken-Saro Wiwa’s phrase -...
ycee su mi
The first time we really got something of note from Ycee was his 2015 hit, Jagaban (the remix of which featured Olamide). Since then it's non stop dropping of joints; from singles to covers, Ycee has used the last 10 months very very well. So when we got word that his mixtape will...
Timaya M.O.N.E.Y
Timaya is probably the most consistently good musician in Nigeria over the past decade, and there's a reason he's been in the game for a long time. At any point in time, he might not be the biggest star, but he's always up there with the big leagues, and...
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...
Who ever thought Cobhams Asuquo would jump on a conscious rap song? You guessed it. Nobody. The multi-talented artist known for the seriousness of his themes, songwriting skills and the bevy of A-lists artists he’s been known to work with decided to scoop something for not only the streets,...
