Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

d'banj breaking news
D’Banj is an intelligent artist despite the negative criticism he received for leaving Don Jazzy and the famous Mo Hits Crew. But if you’re not here for the money then quit the game is a popular phrase artists across every genre have used to justify his/her business driven ambition....
Ajebutter22 - Bad Gang Ft. Falz
Who could be the most suitable candidate to be featured in a “Bad Gang” song other than the bahdt guy himself? This isn’t about Falz, but lately, he’s been featured on some conscious songs and he delivers through his signatory rotten English - to borrow Ken-Saro Wiwa’s phrase -...
ycee su mi
The first time we really got something of note from Ycee was his 2015 hit, Jagaban (the remix of which featured Olamide). Since then it's non stop dropping of joints; from singles to covers, Ycee has used the last 10 months very very well. So when we got word that his mixtape will...
Timaya M.O.N.E.Y
Timaya is probably the most consistently good musician in Nigeria over the past decade, and there's a reason he's been in the game for a long time. At any point in time, he might not be the biggest star, but he's always up there with the big leagues, and...
We at Jaguda try to be positive most times. We hear and see a lot of crap music and videos, and just keep unlooking. You know... let it not be like we are trouble makers, but every so often we're inspired beyond the regular unlooking mode by some straight...
Who ever thought Cobhams Asuquo would jump on a conscious rap song? You guessed it. Nobody. The multi-talented artist known for the seriousness of his themes, songwriting skills and the bevy of A-lists artists he’s been known to work with decided to scoop something for not only the streets,...
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...
reminisce asalamalekun
Man! This joint is serious on a whole new level. First thoughts on the first listen of this new joint, Asalamelekun (Peace Be Onto You) by Reminisce. He really breaks in 2016 on a very high note (we'll ignore Angelina that dropped earlier).First thing that hits you on this joint is...
The rising expectations that came with the release of MI’s third free mixtape - the first ever in the game, is the dream of both an unsigned hype and an upcoming artist. It’s a feat to be emulated and respected across many levels. MI’s versatility and consistency marks him...
After all the fuss surrounding the introduction of Paul Okoye's first female artist Lucy, and the "package" she introduced herself in, the expectations for her debut records were set pretty high. So whenI finally got to listen to the record, I was... well... just read.Now the song was set...
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...

You can say that although 2baba (2face) is a legend in the game, he's been missing a solid hit for the best part of a year. You know how it is when someone is a legend, you don't want to write them off quite yet, and for good reason.In...
Skales, Young D and South African rapper, Da Les teamed up to drop a new joint, Gum Body. Now on the surface you might not think it's the sexiest lineup, but once you hit play the song hits you with something fresh almost instantly.Even though I can’t claim to have heard a lot...
You knew I wouldn't pass the chance to review this new song from Reekado Banks. Not with all the drama from the headies and all, and add the fact that Lil Kesh dropped his single not too long ago. Yep, Oluwa Ni from Reekado Banks was definitely on our...
saeon de be cypher
Saeon dropped the cypher version of her single De Be, and reminded everyone in Nigerian hip-hop how it should be done. Featuring an all star cast of A.T, Poe, Eva, Ozone, Tesh Carter and Ycee, this version of De Be is what any real hip-hop fan would love.The production...
