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...
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...
WizKid just might be the biggest young star of the past year, and for good reason. His singles have been explosive, and anytime he features on a song it's almost a guaranteed hit. To whom much is given, much is expected, and with all the love wizkid has gotten...
This week we review new songs from some of the  leaders of the new generation of music in Nigeria. Yemi Alade and Orezi are well on the road to stardom, and are putting in their work to make sure they leave a serious mark in the industry before it's...
Happy Friday people! This week I'll be hoping on tunes from 2 artists on opposite spectrum of the popularity scale, but nonetheless still talented acts. Let's not get into too much story. Fuse ODG - Dangerous Love ft. Sean Paul MOBO award winner, Fuse ODG has been arguably one of Africa's biggest...
So I saw the title of this song, and I was like huh? But I think AQ is pretty nice on a good day so I decided to give it a listen, but after listening I'm still left scratching my head like "was this really necessary?" First off, what's the...
Kcee – Bureau De Changer
Sigh! *takes a moment to think to self*. Ok let's continue.... I gave myself a week to try to ingest and digest this new song from Kcee but I don't think I've fully grasped or understood what it's all about. Kcee has had a good number of mega hits, (Pull...
reminisce asalamalekun
Man! This joint is serious on a whole new level. First thoughts on the first listen of this new joint, Asalamelekun (Peace Be Onto You) by Reminisce. He really breaks in 2016 on a very high note (we'll ignore Angelina that dropped earlier). First thing that hits you on this joint is...
It was quite a good "W" experience we have had for four years isn't it? If you ask me, it was a very good one. I have waited for his next album for two years. You know that feeling when your favorite nigerian R&B drops a single, and you...
It's another week, and time to review two tunes from the previous week. Today we'll reviewing songs from Chidinma and Patoranking. Let's get to it shall we? Chidinma - Kulikache Chidinma has become one of the hottest female artist in Nigeria over the past couple of years, and anytime she drops...
chidinma
Before this song dropped, I was already licking my lips. Chidinma Ms Kedike and MI Abaga on a track together certainly sounded like something very much to look forward to. But then when the song dropped, and I listened, I was very let down to be honest. First off, the...
It's been about 3 weeks right? Yes once again I apologize for not bringing another round of review your way. Blame it on my trip to Brazil, and all the world cup shenanigans. It was fun so this apology is with a smiling face. Anywhoo I'm back and reviewing 2...
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....
Legendury Beatz and WizKid teaming up is not anything new per say, but anytime they team up they often bring something special to the table. On their new track, Oje, the brothers from Legendury Beatz do what they're very well known for, and that is put out a hot beat....
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...
Seyi Shay reached new heights with her single Murda, and now she's being mentioned with the best of the best in Nigeria. With that comes the big task of following the single up with one close to the same level. The new single, Crazy is not quite up to where...
