Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

Happy Monday people, and happy new week to everyone especially those in the US and Canada who had a long weekend. It's back to reality here. This week we'll be reviewing 2 remixes. One from Selebobo, one of the hottest producers in the game right now, and the other...
If you asked me sometime in the beginning of the year, I would have said that Mo’CheddaH is the next hottest female Naija (oops, sorry Auntie Dora) artist. Ask me now and I’ll simply remove the ‘Next’. Mo’CheddaH is the quintessential versatile artist. She can sing and rap (in straight...
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....

Kiss Daniel had been riding off the high of his 2014 hit, Woju, but we were all waiting for what the follow up single would be, and then came, Laye. Kiss Daniel might have found a winning formula with DJ Coublon, and the two again combine pretty well on this...
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...
Is there anything Mavin Records aren't doing well these days? It seems the crew is not resting on their loins with massive success of Dorobucci, but instead capitalizing on their to push out some of the individual acts on the label. Reekado Bank's latest single Chop Am is one that...

How does one describe good music eloquently? It probably is the hardest thing to do for me. I have heard people equate it to mind blowing sex. I have also heard people equate it to exquisite cuisine. However way one defines it, one thing remains certain, it is undeniable....
No need to reintroduce this column, here's the idea. Mela - Call On Me That moment you hit play on a song you haven't heard of or heard of the artist and you actually like. This is one of those songs. I haven't heard of Mela before, and hitting play was...
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...
It's understandable that Kiss Daniel will want to drop a remix of his single with some heavy weights, but does it always work? It works in some instances (Shoki remix) but in others it doesn't add too much value.
First of all, i don't write reviews except it's really worth it. Davido's album was very much-anticipated, and before it dropped, a few tracks leaked which made his fans skeptical about his freshman album. I was one of the few people who got the album before it got...
"What Is Utunu?" Those are the first words we hear as we are introduced to Lynxx’s debut album – This is Lynxx. The first track “Where you belong” samples Anita Baker’s “Sweet Love”. The song is a mellow song that is not indicative of the tone of the album because...
Rapper Eva Alordiah presents her second EP, titled "Eva, The EP", as a teaser to her upcoming album "1960", set to be released early next year. Eva has been working hard lately, and her recent singles: Deaf, War Coming, and the Deaf remix featuring Olamide and Sarkodie are setting...
