Praiz has been causing problems for the ladies since he broke into the scene about 5-6 years ago, and after much anticipation, and multiple singles later, he’s set to drop his album, Rich and Famous which is titled after his hit single with the same name.

The album will be a double album, split by RnB and AfroPop. One titled The Rich, and the other The Famous. The project will have appearances from Patoranking, Bez, Chidinma amongt others, and will have the previously released singles Sweet Potato, Mercy, and Oshe.

Just like we stated earlier in the year, it’s one of the albums to look forward to in 2014. It comes towards the end of the year, but it’s here regardless.

Look out for it. Praiz Rich and Famous on December 14th, 2014. in his words “One of the dopest album ur gonna hear this year!!! Get ready 14.12.14 #Rich&FamousAlbum#nextlevel#goodmusic#epic#classics”

Lets Live Together_HOAYS Banner

What can be better than the final premiere of the ‘Half of a Yellow Sun movie’? Nothing! Except it is followed with the video for the theme song by Kush which features Chimamanda , Flavour and Morell and wait for it, appearances by most of  your favourite Nigerian top celebrities ! Chimamanda’s part is her second ever feature after featuring in Beyonce’s ‘Flawless’.

The reality style video features appearances by Sir Victor Uwaifo, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Genevieve Nnaji, 2face Idibia, Wole Soyinka, Onyeka Onwenu and DJ Jimmy Jatt. Others include Naeto C, Chidinma,  Oc Ukeje, Dammy Krane and Praiz.

“Let’s Live Together” is the first single from the forthcoming official movie soundtrack album. The 4 minute track is a remake of the highly popular song released in 2002 by KUSH. This 2014 remake features Lara George and Emem Ema of KUSH, as well as renowned artist Flavour, Morrell and in addition, a special feature by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning writer and author of the novel “Half Of A Yellow Sun”which inspired the film.

The movie is a love story set during the Civil War and depicts the circumstances at the time, including the divisions and distrust amongst Nigerians that led to coups, violence and the desire for Biafra. The song urges us, in these present times, to live together as one, irrespective of our differences in tribe, tongue, and religion. The main message of “Let’s Live Together” is that our diversity is in fact a source of strength.

“Let’s Live Together” is a heartfelt appeal to Nigerians to live together in peace and unity and a reminder that there is strength in our diversity as a people.

praiz-mercy

Praiz wastes no time right? Barely 48 hours after he dropped his single, Mercy, he’s dropped this new video for the single.

Directed by Patrick Elis, the video will definitely keep you glued to your screens for about 4 minutes as the X3M Music act woos his love interest with help from KCEE, Vector, Pheel, Iyanya, Sean Tizzle, Timaya, Sammy, Simi and others.

praiz sweet potato

Praiz drops a hot new joint to kick off the week, and it’s titled Sweet Potato. It features Chidinma so you know the two did a bit of magic on this.

Praiz’s album Rich & Famous is set to drop later this year under the X3M music imprint and with the fans he’s won over the years you’ll expect the anticipation to be at a high level.

Check on it. Praiz Sweet Potato!

praiz-oshe

Check out the fresh video to Praiz’s latest single, Oshe featuring the legend, Awilo Longomba.

The single has received mixed reviews from fans as it’s not the Praiz many have grown accustomed to, but it’s hard to argue when the tune is this nice sounding, and the video this fresh.

Check on it, and put on the Makossa dancing shoes (if you need shoes at all)

As with the past couple of years(2012, 2013) we’re going to delve into giving you the albums and projects from artists that are the most anticipated going into 2014 or rather those you should look forward to.

2013 gave us a nice collection of albums, some expected, some unexpected, some lived up to expectations, and others not so much. 2014 is no different, but we’ll attempt to bring this to you based on what we know going into the new year.

chidinma-EKILE

Chidinma – TBA

We have gotten confirmation from her label execs that yes there will be an album from Ms Kedike in 2014, and you have to say hers is probably one of the most anticipated for any female artist in Nigeria. She’s had a couple of very solid singles over the past year including Oh Baby, Kite, Jollie, and Bless My Hustle which features Phyno. With the buzz she has going, one has to say a lot of us are definitely looking forward to her album.

 

DAMMY-KRANE ON STAGE.,.,.,

Dammy Krane – TBA

From all accounts we were supposed to get an album from Dammy Krane in 2013 but somehow that didn’t work out. However he did drop one of the hotter jams of 2013 in Xteristics, and in addition to that released Lobatan & Gratitude. You gotta feel that if he doesn’t drop something this year we just might get tired of anticipating… unless of course he drops another hot jam.

 

YUNG L(1)

Endia & Yung L – TBA

I have both of them because we might get a joint GRIP Musik project or solo projects from one or both of them this year. Nothing has been set in stone as far as I know, but I get the feeling we’ll get to enjoy a very solid project from the GRIP Musik camp this year. MA2G maybe? It’s only almost 4 years late. Chopstix has been blazing beats all of 2013, Endia’s name has been buzzing since his single 48 and Yung L’s Red Rose is still on fire. It’s about that time yea?

 

MI
MI

MI Abaga – The Chairman

From all accounts MI Abaga had a relatively quiet 2013, with Ice Prince taking center stage in Chocolate City, but that doesn’t mean he’s fading. You know MI will always do something exceptional when it counts. Even though his last single Chairman didn’t really move the meter as some had expected it to do, you have to put it there that you shouldn’t underestimate MI and his 3rd album that is slated to be released this year, The Chairman, is still one to look forward to.

 

phenom 2

Phenom – Best Rapper Alive (B.R.A) [Mixtape]

Phenom’s B.R.A was supposed to be released late 2013, and actually as of december it was still expected at the tail end of the year. As we all know that didn’t happen so you know it’s definitely going to happen this year. Phenom, the KnightHouse general has been one of the promising acts to look out for since he burst into the scene. This is the year his project drops and it’s one that could potentially define the way his career will carry on from there.

phyno

Phyno – TBA

If I had to guess I’d say he’d title it Man Of The Year, but his camp has refused to confirm any album titles yet. But really it doesn’t matter what the album is called, you get the feeling it’s gonna be packing some major heat. His singles Man Of Year and Parcel have put him on the hottest act to watch list in 2014, so it’s natural that his project will be highly anticipated.

 

Praiz

Praiz – Rich & Famous

Finally! This will be the year we get an album from Praiz. I know we said that last year but this (as with last year) we are getting confirmation from his camp, and we’ve been told to be on the look out for a few surprises. Praiz arguably has the best singing voice in Nigeria. Even tho his last single Oshe which featured Awilo didn’t really thrill his core fans, you have to still put it out there that there’ll be a lot of folks waiting for his project. Including me :)

 

...

Ruby (Self Titled)

Ruby has the potential to surprise a lot of people this year, and with word that she’ll be putting out a self-titled EP, 2014 could be the break out year for the songstress. Her previous singles, Okay and Down have been doing pretty well and have gathered her a substantial fan base. For the talents Ruby possesses and the solid team we know she has behind her, expect this EP to be very solid. Even if it’s not mainstream afro-pop.

 

HorploadWorks_SeanTizzle_3

Sean Tizzle – The Journey

Sean Tizzle had an outstanding 2013, and it ended with him grabbing the Next Rated award at the Headies Awards 2013. His singles Sho Lee, Mama Eh and International Badman have been in steady rotation for pretty much all of 2013, and you have to figure that his album The Journey, will be one to look out for this year. If we are to go with history this could make him a bonafide star.

 

skales

Skales – TBA

So Skales just might be losing his buzz a little bit as we’ve seen single after single after single come and go, but still no album. Once again word on the street is that we’ll get to see an album this year, but just like 2012, and 2013, expecting to drop an album and actually dropping an album are 2 different things. With WizKid also dropping an album this year, it could go bad for Skales once again this year. However if this album does drop this year, it’ll be a long time coming and one that will definitely be one to listen to.

 

wande-coal-las-gidi-2

Wande Coal – Black Diamond

Wande Coal is finally out of the shadows of Mo-Hits and Mavin Records and now floats his own label, Black Diamond. His recent singles The Kick, Baby Face and Amorawa have been doing pretty well, even though he hasn’t quite hit his Mushin To Mo-hits form, but everyone knows the talent is there. As much as this album will be anticipated, everyone will be curious to see how it all comes out without one of his major mentors in music, Don Jazzy.

 

WIZKID (1)

WizKid – TBA

Star Boy! He just might be the artist of 2013 in terms of his impact to music, and many fans were extremely disappointed when his album scheduled for June, 2013 was postponed till this year. His singles Jaiye Jaiye, Drop and On Top Your Matter are arguably some of the hottest singles of 2013, and everyone knows WizKid rarely falls hand, so you know his 2nd album due out this year will be one that every music fan will want. Plus we might see even more international collaborations.

 

Yemi Alade

Yemi Alade – Miss Johnny or King Yemi Alade

Yemi Alade has the potential to be the top female entertainer by time 2014 is over and done with, and that is for real. Now we just have to wait and see if that potential actualizes, but you have to say so far so good. Her single Johnny has been a serious buzz since its release. Word from the label is that the album is definitely dropping this year. Titles are rumored to be Miss Johnny or King Yemi Alade, but no one has confirmed. Well even if the name is Moi-Moi music it’ll still be one I’ll definitely look forward to and so should you.

 

yung6ix

Yung6ix – 6’O Clock

This the year for Yung6ix. Just like Skales, you can only buzz very well for so long without dropping a major project before fans start to lose interest. A lot of his issues have been chucked up to the label, but you get the feeling that’s all about to end. His album is said to feature the likes of M.I, Olamide, Erigga and Yemi Alade amongst others, so you know it’s going to be a heavy dose of hip-hop with a south-south flavor. Definitely one to look out for this year.

 

Notable Mentions:

IllBliss – TBA

JayWon – Product of an Environment

Seyi Shay (Not 100% sure an album will drop this year)

Orezi

Harrysong aka Mr Songz
