Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

Arguable on of the most anticipated rap albums Everbody Loves IcePrince is finally here. Judging from the success of his smash hit single “Oleku”, we need no jazz man to tell us how much pressure was on the J-town MC to deliver a solid piece of work. After listening to the...
Bracket released their album Cupid Stories with mixed reviews from fans following the 2 singles that were released prior to the album. The first single Muah Muah received mixed reviews from fans and seemed to put the duo in a weird spot but the follow up single Me &...
Ask anyone in the music industry and DJ Klem is a name that commands major respect among his peers. His work on production is top notch and so when it comes to his album, you can expect that you'll be getting good music... very good music.AfroFunkyDiscoSoul as the name...
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...
I must say this. I was one of those that didn’t really have much of an opinion on J-Berg. I had heard one track from him “Wan Test Us” but besides that I hadn’t heard much from this cat and so couldn’t make a call on what I thought...
 Darey dropped his new album, cleverly called Double Dare as it was a double disc album with two parts. One named Heart and the other, Beat. Heart consisted of the slow jams and romantic ballads while Beat had the up-tempo, party jams and had most of the singles that...
Sometime last week, during a great hip hop week in Nigerian Music, Super C Season was dropped on us. This was the sophomore album by rapper/singer, Naeto-C popularly known as the only MC with an Msc. I for one, knew he had an album coming out but did not...
Listening to JahBless it's pretty difficult to place him in one genre of music. On some joints, it's traditional, on some others it's reggae, and on a few it's more african hip-hop. All this ends up being a positive since it displays  his versatility, and musical bravery.JahBless dropped his...
"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...
Christine's anticipated album "Life Under Construction" was finally released on the last day of 2010 and the album is solid if I can say so myself. Although I personally feel it didn't get the massive publicity it probably deserves, I do think it will creep into our systems eventually.The...
If you haven't heard of Kahli Abdu then you must've been living under a rock for the past couple of years. Kahli Abdu is one of the finest MCs in Naija, and is a real representer of J-Town, the unofficial home of Hip-Hop in Nigeria.He is one of the...
So the long awaited, eagerly anticipated, much hyped MI2 album has finally dropped! You should have seen the madness on twitter pre and post droppage(?) of the album... Heard #MI2 even trended worldwide on twitter (at #8)...  Maybe there is an MI2 movie coming out, don’t know, but it...
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...
First of all I’d like to say that Asa is not your everyday Naija artist. I don’t need to explain the uniqueness of her style or the depth of her lyrics. So I won’t. I can tell you however that ‘Beautiful Imperfection’ did not fall hand at all. First thing...
Boyz are not smiling... Babes are not smiling. It's all BANS, all Day. We've not been smiling since earlier this year when Terry Tha Rapman officially annouced he'll be releasing his album, Boyz Are Not Smiling.The album features a nice variety of folks ranging from the real hip-hop folks...
