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...
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...
Burna Boy has made a big name with his unique style in nigerian music that is rarely replicated. It's rare to hear of a new Burna Boy tune and not see many fans excited. His new tune, Check and Balance starts off on a promising note with a nice beat...
Christine's anticipated album "Life Under Construction" was finally released on the last day of 2010 and the album is solid if I can say so myself. Although I personally feel it didn't get the massive publicity it probably deserves, I do think it will creep into our systems eventually. The...
Quite honestly I haven't paid much attention to Lady Donli, but while browsing through the music pages and listening to new songs this one instantly caught my attention. The first thing that struck me about the song was the easy going and soothing beat. Lady Donli's flow style is unique,...
"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...
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...

Let's get into it before the day runs out. Olamide – Ko Duro Be ft. Viktor & DJ Enimoney Olamide has been one of the hottest names in entertainment over the past year, and for all the good reasons. Ko Duro Be sees him feature his YBNL soldiers Viktor and DJ Enimoney,...
L.I.F.E (Leaving an Impact for Eternity) BURNA BOY RECORD LABEL: Aristokrat Records YEAR: 2013 When an artiste consistently drops three hit singles back to back, his forthcoming album becomes the most anticipated album of the year. The suspense for the release of this album was over on the 10th of august 2013 when...
So the long awaited, eagerly anticipated, much hyped MI2 album has finally dropped! You should have seen the madness on twitter pre and post droppage(?) of the album... Heard #MI2 even trended worldwide on twitter (at #8)...  Maybe there is an MI2 movie coming out, don’t know, but it...
Artiste: Di'ja  Song: Wan Chop  Mavin Records princess Di'ja is slowly making her comeback, the new song "Wan Chop" is her second single this year. Di'ja throws an open invitation in the song to her 'lover' to 'come chop'. She begins by calling out "where you baby eh", "come here baby eh"....

Since his official exit from Chocolate City, it has been a low key ride for one of Nigeria’s biggest rapper Ice Prince....
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...
We're back in a new year people, and that means some new songs to enjoy, and for me, to review. We're starting with Burna Boy's recent release, Rockstar. On first I was thoroughly excited for a couple of reasons, 1. It was a very different sound especially from Burna Boy,...
It's understandable that Kiss Daniel will want to drop a remix of his single with some heavy weights, but does it always work? It works in some instances (Shoki remix) but in others it doesn't add too much value.
