Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

Happy Monday my people! I'm switching up the review style starting this week, and will be reviewing each song in its own individual post. I'll still be posting 2 review but they'll be seperate posts on the same day. Why? It gives you guys the opportunity to vote on...
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,...
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...
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,...
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...
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...
FIRE OF ZAMANI ICE PRINCE RECORD LABEL: CHOCOLATE CITY YEAR: 2013   IcePrince is the most sellable Nigerian rapper at the moment. The only person that can wear an Agbada with sneakers and still look super dapper. The best rapper in Africa considering the recent BET Awards as the Best International Act: Africa. After...
After I listened to the album for the first time, my first reaction was “Wow. I didn’t feel the need to skip any songs.” Albums like that don’t come too often these days – in Nigeria and outside of Nigeria. Even the so called “hit albums” always have that...
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...
You knew I wouldn't pass the chance to review this new song from Reekado Banks. Not with all the drama from the headies and all, and add the fact that Lil Kesh dropped his single not too long ago. Yep, Oluwa Ni from Reekado Banks was definitely on our...
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...
Aribaba: So we decided we'd take a bit of time to listen to the most anticipated mixtape of the past year, Illegal Music 2. As much as I thought MI kept posting us like DHL on this, I still waited for mixtape, and went to download when it dropped....
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...
ALBUM: TABULA RASA ARTISTE: BRYMO Tabula Rasa is a Latin term which means “Clean Slate”, a metaphoric phrase for a fresh start, and Brymo has desperately been in need of a fresh start following the recent troubles his career has faced. After the release of his last album, Merchant, Dealers and...
Iyanya teams up with Oritse Femi for this tune that's a little bit of a different style from what we're used to Iyanya. The production is not anything so new in terms of innovation but works well especially with OritseFemi complementing it.. Lyrically it's not as bad as I expected...
If singles are a pointer to what to expect in an album, and I think they are, then "Pray for you" certainly pointed to a beautiful album. And for 4 years I waited for it. Let's see if "OPEN DOORS" kept the promise. A Star (produced by Nosa & Eddie...
