Reekado Bank - Pull Up
Looking back at the growth of Reekado Banks from ‘Dorobucci’ to ‘Like’,  if you have been paying attention you'll acknowledge that the boy has grown from a small boy that Don Jazzy signed to a biggie man. He has continued to impress with his music even in the face...

Yemi Alade has to be one of the most hardworking female artistes in the industry. The effort she puts in to push her craft speaks volumes and to be frank she is also reaping the fruits of her labour. I personally admire her consistency in putting out new music...
Aside the fact that the new tune "Joromi," is relating on so many grounds, X3M Music act, Simi and AJE Film Works have simply granted us another perfect video which is brilliantly colorful, and with less cast involved.Simi tells a story that is common but with multiple occurrences. Either from gentlemen...
Before this time of the year in recent years past YBNL helmsman Olamide would have already scored a major hit for himself. Some of his major hits in the past two years like Lagos Boy, Shakiti Bobo, Who U Epp, all came in before August  of 2015 and 2016. However,...

falz simi chemistry

Yay! We're all excited that P-Square, after months of "inhouse fighting" and "breaking up", have reunited and dropped a new single for the fans. And they'll be dropping a new video shortly also. What's not to love right? Africa's biggest duo have put aside their differences, and gone back...
reminisce album elhadj
The 'Kako Bi Chicken'crooner turned Alaga Ibile who then became Baba Hafusa took us on a trip to Mecca. His personal Mecca as you may call it, but it's worth the ride. Without a doubt, Reminisce has been one of the most consistent rappers we have at the moment....
