Nigerian music reviews by the best music critics in the country

While the Kardashians have been fighting to break the internet with their clinically enhanced bodies, an MC’s fight for greatness have fallen short of legendary to the claim of a living figure who sometimes endorse or at times, deny his sanctification of an assumed protege laying claims to his...
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...
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,...
kiss daniel new era
If you were underestimating what Kiss Daniel would put out in the form of an album, then you're not alone. Kiss Daniel (real name Daniel Anidugbe) probably surprised a lot of peeps with his new album, New Era. Now let's get into the specifics.The album kicks off with a...
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...
