Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

Seyi Shay is a very unique artist in the Nigerian music industry, and that has been a good thing most times, other times not so great. Before her hit single, Murda, last year, the name Seyi Shay was very well known but not many could say why they knew...
falz stores that touch review
Falz the badt guy had his single, Karashika buzzing for most of the year, carrying his momentum from 2014 well into 2015. Once word hit that he was releasing an album this year, everyone was curios to see just what Falz would have up his sleeves for his sophomore...
As I was looking for a great way to start this article, I realized there was just no way to begin it, without referencing the awesome talent that is Wande Coal. Since the days of Mo'hits, Wande has always been a standout star, and was the only Mo'hits member to...
reminisce baba hafusa
It is commonplace, here in Western Nigeria, for parents to be addressed by attaching ‘Baba’ or ‘Mama’ to the name of one of their progenies, e.g Baba Hafusa. Such names evoke respect as they tell us that the person in question is responsible for, at least, the child by...
chocolate city ticbn album review
Call this the biggest merger in Nigerian music and I won’t disagree with you. When the announcement was made by Chocolate city that Loopy music was going to be officially merged with it, to form one mega record label of some sorts, some eyebrows were raised. Issues of promotions,...

In every year there's a slew of wedding songs released, and 2014 is no different. Earlier in the year we put out a post for the top 5 wedding songs for 2014, and now that the year is over we are putting out the top wedding song released in...
The Chairman album experience, for me, started with the release of the track list. The ingenuity and quality of thought that went into ordering the track list, more than any other factor, helped put me in a better frame of mind to receive the body of work. True to form,...
Artiste: Yemi Alade Album Title: King Of Queens Yemi Alade presents her debut album after successes from her recent singles Tangerine and Johnny, Yemi Alade titles this compilation “King of Queens” and it is an attempt to show her recent rise to fame, and her new found status on the Nigerian...
After releasing about one half of what would be his sophomore album piecemeal, over several months; Wizkid decided the time was right to bless us with the remainder of the pudding. Although I lost appetite a long time ago, courtesy demands that when the Star Boy calls you to...
I must say that the predictably banal title of P-square’s sixth studio album did little to heighten my expectation as I copped the album. However, after a thorough appraisal, here’s my candid thought on this work. The Double Trouble album couldn’t have started, for me, on a more unimpressive note...
Some weeks ago I was privileged to get an invite to 2face's private album listening party for Ascension. I was only too grateful to honour the event. After the event, I didn't have a good feeling, but surely, one- frequently interrupted- listen by DJ Willie O wasn't enough to...
Yes I know, I know. It's been forever. I really have no excuse really. Busy busy schedule, lack of focus, and all other things but ultimately no excuse really. Now that I've apologized, you have no choice but to forgive me. Yea? Anyways today I'll be jumping on two joints...
The self proclaimed Man Of The Year, Phyno finally released his debut album, No Guts No Glory, with as much anticipation as there has been in Naija hip-hop and for good reason. His singles Man Of The Year, Ghost Mode and Parcel were proper lead singles to pack enough...
