Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

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...
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...
saeon de be cypher
Saeon dropped the cypher version of her single De Be, and reminded everyone in Nigerian hip-hop how it should be done. Featuring an all star cast of A.T, Poe, Eva, Ozone, Tesh Carter and Ycee, this version of De Be is what any real hip-hop fan would love. The production...
Apologies are in order for missing my weekly review last sunday. Blame it on excess ogogoro and my born day. This week we're jumping on the hip-hop band wagon strictly and going with joints from 2 of the most promising hip-hop acts in Nigeria. Yep I'm talking Phenom, The KnightHouse...
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...
Yes, I know this is delayed. Sorry people. But better late than never right, so let's get into it (a whole 3 days late). This week we're reviewing songs with similar styles, but both from well known artists in Nigeria, Seyi Shay & May D. Make we begin. Seyi Shay -...
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 like to refer to Reminisce as your favorite rapper's favorite rapper. Most people you ask have Reminisce as one of their favorite rappers in Nigeria. The new joint, SKiLASHii, dropped with the anticipation for his 3rd album very high. The first thing that hits about this tune is the beat....
Iyanya linked up with Tanzanian super star, Diamond Platnumz for this new tune, Nakupenda. It translates to I Love U in swahili.
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...
  Artiste – Iyanya Album: Desire Features – Tekno, Flavour, May D, Emma Nyra, Yung L, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Vector & D’banj Producers –Tee Y Mix, D’tunes, Mr. Chido & GospelOndaBeat Label – Made Men Music Group (2013)   CAUTION: You might hear the word/name ‘Ronaldo’ in every song on this album, do not be offended....
I didn't need to listen to this album to change my thoughts about Brymo. You know that feeling when you don't have to skip a track? That's what Son of Kapenta is all about. What a Great album and major props to Brymo for doing serious justice to his...
New series on deck! Two To Review is a new column I'm starting to begin reviewing & rating music that has been released over the past 7 days. In today's blogging world, every song is tagged as a "smash" or "dope" and if we're really being honest with ourselves,...
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...
It's that time of the year once again, and a chance to look back and reflect on the year that has been. Youtube just released a list of the most viewed music videos in Nigeria for the year 2014, and it pretty shows the hit songs we all expected...
ycee su mi
The first time we really got something of note from Ycee was his 2015 hit, Jagaban (the remix of which featured Olamide). Since then it's non stop dropping of joints; from singles to covers, Ycee has used the last 10 months very very well. So when we got word that his mixtape will...
