Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

Harrysong dropped this new tune last week titled, Ma Meh, and well... we decided to give it a review. Harrysong has done well for himself with getting tunes that get their share of spins at clubs, and parties, and I can understand sticking to the same winning formula, but after...
It's a new year, and we're back with our weekly series Two To Review. I promise to be much more consistent this year, and if I slack you can call me out on it. Cobhams Asuquo - Ordinary People Cobhams is known as one of the best producers in Nigeria, and...
The first thing that struck me about this song,  Olu Maintain - Cinderella, was the sample of Peacock's Highlife Band's Eddie Quansa. It seems like everyone is grabbing something from the song all of a sudden. It sets a very familiar tone for the song, but after that initial feel...
The recognition and respect of the great legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti, in the 8th second of the video is commendable. It’s like pouring libation on ancestral ground. Double thumbs up to Director Q for cinematic graphics. Dremo’s flow is fiery, after all he says, he’s ‘straight out of hell...
Iyanya and D'Tunes reunited after not working together for a couple of years and released 2 singles, Nothing Mega and Sukumma. In today's review though, we'll be hitting up the first of the pair, Nothing Mega. The first thing that struck me about this tune on first listen was the...
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...
Rapper Eva Alordiah presents her second EP, titled "Eva, The EP", as a teaser to her upcoming album "1960", set to be released early next year. Eva has been working hard lately, and her recent singles: Deaf, War Coming, and the Deaf remix featuring Olamide and Sarkodie are setting...
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...
falz stores that touch review
Falz the badt guy had his single, Karashika buzzing for most of the year, carrying his momentum from 2014 well into 2015. Once word hit that he was releasing an album this year, everyone was curios to see just what Falz would have up his sleeves for his sophomore...
I was not one of the first people to get the Ministry of Corruption mixtape by Kahli Abdu when it came out, but after I got it and listened to it, I knew we were dealing with a rare artist and when word came out of a new mixtape...
naeto c atide
Naeto C teamed up with Maleek Berry for this new joint, Atide, and my initial thought after listening was "Hmmm... Naeto C has found his touch again." And really that's a good thing. At the onset the beat kinda sounds like that of Kiss Daniel's Laye, but we'll forgive that since...
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,...

After releasing about one half of what would be his sophomore album piecemeal, over several months; Wizkid decided the time was right to bless us with the remainder of the pudding. Although I lost appetite a long time ago, courtesy demands that when the Star Boy calls you to...
Aribaba: So we decided we'd take a bit of time to listen to the most anticipated mixtape of the past year, Illegal Music 2. As much as I thought MI kept posting us like DHL on this, I still waited for mixtape, and went to download when it dropped....
Vector came back with a bang, dropping 2 singles back to back (Shiga and Redefined) before dropping his mixtape, #A7. It's the sort of thing that makes you believe that he was really putting in some work when he was on his hiatus. Now I'll raise my hand say, I...
