Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

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...
d'prince show me
It almost feels like musical groundhog day. A new tune comes from D'Prince and gets fans excited, but we're left disappointed once again with the same old generic sounds, lyrics, and chorus. It's amazing that we keep clicking play again and again. I listened to this track over and over,...
This week we working on 2 joints from artists that have had their share of hits over the past couple of years, Mo'Cheddah and Maleek Berry. The review is coming a day late but no vex; Blame it all on the world cup and the shenanigans that followed. Let's get...
When I initially heard that Falz, Olamide and Davido hopped on a track together my antennas went up. Then I heard the creative title (Bahd, Baddo, Baddest), and I got even more excited, but then after listening to the track I was left rather unimpressed. It's not like it's...
According to Idowu Koyenikan ,“At the end, someone or something always gives up. It's either you give up and quit or the obstacle or failure gives up and makes way for your success to come through". This quote can be related to Patoranking's journey in the music industry from...
Kcee – Bureau De Changer
Sigh! *takes a moment to think to self*. Ok let's continue.... I gave myself a week to try to ingest and digest this new song from Kcee but I don't think I've fully grasped or understood what it's all about. Kcee has had a good number of mega hits, (Pull...
One of the surprise albums this year, the EME compilation album, Empire Mates State of Mind kind of came as a surprise as most of us were expecting a Banky W album or one from Skales, but nonetheless, no one was complaining. Most of us were actually pretty excited. The...
"What Is Utunu?" Those are the first words we hear as we are introduced to Lynxx’s debut album – This is Lynxx. The first track “Where you belong” samples Anita Baker’s “Sweet Love”. The song is a mellow song that is not indicative of the tone of the album because...
Artiste: Yemi Alade Album Title: King Of Queens Yemi Alade presents her debut album after successes from her recent singles Tangerine and Johnny, Yemi Alade titles this compilation “King of Queens” and it is an attempt to show her recent rise to fame, and her new found status on the Nigerian...
First of all I’d like to say that Asa is not your everyday Naija artist. I don’t need to explain the uniqueness of her style or the depth of her lyrics. So I won’t. I can tell you however that ‘Beautiful Imperfection’ did not fall hand at all. First thing...
For the First Time, A Different Genre of Music in Nigeria Made History. Claps....... Over the Years I have listened to different albums, only few artistes try to be DIFFERENT and stay different. Nigerian Music today is embodied with the same type of music, recycled beats and everyone is sounding...
I must say this. I was one of those that didn’t really have much of an opinion on J-Berg. I had heard one track from him “Wan Test Us” but besides that I hadn’t heard much from this cat and so couldn’t make a call on what I thought...
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...
Happy Easter people! This past friday was good Friday and the beginning of Easter Weeekend and because of all the festivities and enjoyment, I wasn't able to jump in and do a review. Better late than never right? Today we're jumping on tunes from Kcee and a hot rapper from...
In every year there's a slew of wedding songs released, and 2014 is no different. Earlier in the year we put out a post for the top 5 wedding songs for 2014, and now that the year is over we are putting out the top wedding song released in...
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...
