Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

I know I haven't done this in more than a week, but forgive me. WizKid - Joy This tune is a different speed for WizKid, and is somewhat a not so typical WizKid joint, but it works. For starters lyrically, it’s one of WizKid’s better joints (that doesn’t say too much) as...
Producer Sarz has a knack for coming up with crazy beats that will get you moving your body even when you don’t want to. His latest work, Shoknorris does that and then some. There’s really no need to discuss the beat of the song as it’s fire from start 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...
Efe Michael Ejeba better addressed with the mononym EFE was about the most talked about Nigerian youth in the last five months courtesy of reality TV show Big Brother Naija. For as long as the show lasted his name was on the lips of millions of Nigerian youths and must surprisingly some "elders" who you would...
phyno connect
Am I the only one that heard Olamide's Story For The Gods when this song (Phyno - Connect) started off? No? Well once I got over that I was able to listen to the song well. This is completely different from what we're used to getting from Phyno. I guess...
yemi alade knack am
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...
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...
While the Kardashians have been fighting to break the internet with their clinically enhanced bodies, an MC’s fight for greatness have fallen short of legendary to the claim of a living figure who sometimes endorse or at times, deny his sanctification of an assumed protege laying claims to his...
burna boy soke
Burna Boy dropped this joint a few days ago, and to a bit of a surprise to his fans. Listening to the song, Soke, it's feels like this was an experiment gone wrong, or a rushed idea. Either way, the song gets very monotonous, it sounds somewhat generic, and doesn't...
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...
We're back once again on this sunday to pick 2 songs released in the past week to review. It was kinda difficult seeing that a LOT of track were released this past week, but we can only 2, and so I had to pick 2. So here goes. Gunzz - Broken...
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...
ALBUM: TABULA RASA ARTISTE: BRYMO Tabula Rasa is a Latin term which means “Clean Slate”, a metaphoric phrase for a fresh start, and Brymo has desperately been in need of a fresh start following the recent troubles his career has faced. After the release of his last album, Merchant, Dealers and...
timaya sanko remix with destra
It's review time, and right now we're jumping on Timaya's Sanko Remix which features Soca queen, Destra. With remixes it's always hit and miss. Some remixes end up being dope, and some are just unnecessary and wack. This one right here falls on the dope side of things. The song, Sanko...
Happy Monday people! We're kicking off the last week in November with a review of Davido's new song, Owo Ni Koko (Dance Like Jackson). Let's get into it. On the first listen quite honestly I was kinda confused as to where to place this song. One on hand it sounded...
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...
