Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

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...
davido dodo
Davido has been buzzing all year around for all his different singles, and features and for good reason to. His soon to be released album, The Baddest, is the most anticipated of 2016. Once this tune, DODO, dropped yesterday, I gave it a little bit of time for the initial...
I bet you guys have been waiting for the album review for versus. I hope the latter, "Bashorun Gaa" was good. After subsequent listens of "Versus" an album which 9ice featured various artistes on all tracks, here is a detailed review of the 18 track album. 1. 9ice vs 2face...

Happy Monday people, and Happy New Month to those of us that didn't wake up till Sunday :). This week we're back once again jumping on review for songs from Lynxxx and Mavin records newest diva, Di'Ja. No long story... let's get into it. Lynxxx - Leave Story Lynxxx has put...
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....
chocolate city ticbn album review
Call this the biggest merger in Nigerian music and I won’t disagree with you. When the announcement was made by Chocolate city that Loopy music was going to be officially merged with it, to form one mega record label of some sorts, some eyebrows were raised. Issues of promotions,...
The tone was set once we heard "Another gbedu wey dey bust brain". And that's exactly what this one is. Gbedu wey dey bust brain. Following the huge success of his last single, Oluwa Ni, it only made sense that Reekado Banks linked back up with in house producer, Altims. And...
Happy Friday people! This week I'll be hoping on tunes from 2 artists on opposite spectrum of the popularity scale, but nonetheless still talented acts. Let's not get into too much story. Fuse ODG - Dangerous Love ft. Sean Paul MOBO award winner, Fuse ODG has been arguably one of Africa's biggest...
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,...
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...
Runtown is set to drop his debut album, Ghetto University and decided to release this single, Wahali to lead up to the album release. He's had a nice number of hits over the past 2 years including Gallardo, Domot and Baby Answer so I was expecting the good trend...
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...
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,...
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...
