VIDEO: Waconzy Blasts Davido, Olamide, Timaya on Channels TV

Interviews Videos

Waconzy always sounds “excited” when he does interviews. Yesterday, he stirred up some controversy on the Channels TV show Rubbin’ Minds by throwing shades at “little kids” making “noisy music”; mentioning names like Olamide, Davido, even his Port Harcourt brother Timaya.

The “Iworiwo” singer also goes on to (attempt to) shake off his “one hit wonder” tag. This interview is sure to get people talking.

Davido reacted immediately after the interview with a subliminal tweet aimed at Waconzy:

The 10 Most Gifted Rappers in Nigeria

Article Features

It is safe to say that the Hip-Hop scene in Nigeria is beginning to take form and may soon become a viable and more commercial genre in the Nigerian music scene; only time will tell.

In the past year, summer of 2012 to summer of 2013, a handful of rappers have dropped music consistently or have released a body of work such as a mixtape or full length album to stay relevant in the hiphop scene. Because not all rappers are made the same, we gathered all the material from these relevant rap artists and listened diligently. During this process we judged each EMCEE on skill, from wordplay ability, delivery style, catchy and versatile flow, lyrical potency, punch line, rhyming not just to rhyme, and story telling.

Here is the list of The 10 Most Gifted Rappers in Nigeria.

10mostgifted

 

10. Reminisce

Reminisce is a very skilful rapper when it comes to his local dialect, Yoruba, and pretty decent when spittin’ in the English language. His street appeal and commercial success have made him very relevant whenever rap is mentioned in Nigeria. His versatility, catchy phrases describing his thoughts tend to usually solicit a rewind to verify that you heard right while listening to his music. He displayed this perfectly in “Government (Ijoba)” featuring Olamide and Endia.

 9. Naeto C

Naeto C came in the game and took rap to an unprecedented commercial level with Kini Big Deal and his debut album. You can also tell that apart from being a rapper, he is a music composer who focuses on building the structure of his songs. Naeto also tends to pay special attention to details from his very catchy hooks to his bars.  He displays all these on Tony Montana, I gentle O, Can You Do It and even his older tracks.

8. Vector

Other than his work ethic, Vector‘s strength is his word play ability. He tends to put words together to make meaning and then goes ahead and uses that meaning to explain a point. So for the most part, he uses inference as opposed to laying down lyrics that will paint a clear picture. It’s almost like, sometimes he wants his audience to do some work in order to figure out the point he tries to make.  In addition, Vector keeps a strong flow for the most part and delivers the right voice tone/inflection to each beat/instrumental and music context.

7. Ice Prince

Panshak Zamani unofficially holds the current title for “most commercial rap artist”, but still makes the list for a couple of  reasons; his canny ability to coin catchy rap lines and hooks in his commercial songs such as “Aboki” and his fierce delivery that commands attention when we listen to his hard core rap freestyles such as “Truth”. Like it or not, it requires real skills to go commercial as a rapper and still switch it up when required.

6. ShowDemCamp (SDC)

The duo Ghost and Tec are true rappers of this time. When they rap, they tend not to emphasize their punchlines or wordplay so as not to compromise the big picture. Instead, they use their wordplay as tools to stay on topic and to paint a very clear scenario or story. Ghost spits the lyrical fiya and Tec delivers catchy flows, but together they are able to rap without compromising or mumbling words just to rhyme. SDC’s ultimate focus in most of their verses is to deliver a  full story or use descriptions to make a point that you will see play out in your head as you listen, and they still manage to make each line rhyme. They also tend to be big on rapping about their experiences and lifestyle.

5. SiNZU

No one is touching Sinzu when it comes to maintaining the same level of delivery on any kind of beat or song; party, conscious, gangster, local… you name it. He is as versatile as they come. Most of us know that Sinzu grew up partly in Ogba, Lagos and Los Angeles California.  His strength is his impeccable delivery (flow, bars and words) when he does any type of track. So when he is rappin’ with a down South or  an L.A type flow, he does it properly and is still able to switch to Naija street type flow within the same 16 bars. Sinzu is also big on infusing humour into his music which keeps his listeners very entertained.

4. M.I

Since M.I Abaga dropped his debut album in 2008, rap music has never been the same. He single-handedly upped the standards of Naija rap music. With M.I, his voice coupled with his skill (strong flow, punch lines, story telling ability and uncommon and unexpected joining of words to make meaning which is popularly known as wordplay) make him a master at rapping. On LOST, the 1st single of his iLLegal Music 2 mixtape, instead of just saying some folks are taking the piss, he put words together and delivered these lines ‘these dicks made a quick move to zipper down a piss take‘ … You can hear more from the aformentioned mixtape… Don’t be fooled by Chairman.

3. Phyno

When you rap in a native African language (Igbo) and you are able to deliver it in a polished manner that gets even those who don’t understand the words that are coming out of your mouth to not only listen, but wish that they understood your language so that they can experience the entirety of what you are spittin, then you are on your way to greatness. This is one of Phyno‘s core strengths and it is obvious that he has won the hearts of most music lovers in Nigeria to where his name has to be mentioned whenever rap music is the topic of discussion. His style can easily be exported and liked outside Nigeria.

2. Olamide

Other than his apparent work ethic which is evident in the rate at which he releases music, Olamide’s nonchalant, street flavored and playful delivery of words which surprisingly, typically make sense and rhymes, tend to draw most of us to listen to him; so he has taken care of the attraction factor where most people actually feel the need to listen to his verses all the way through. Digging deeper to his lyrics both in English and Yoruba, Olamide is not much of a storyteller but he is able to make a clear point with strong metaphors, which are difficult to rhyme in Yoruba, and out of this world comparisons that are guaranteed to crack you up.

1. ModeNine

Whether he knows it or not, ModeNine, who we can all agree is the GrandFather of true lyricism in Nigerian hiphop, has the ability and skill to go commercial. This fierce emcee can do anything with words from punch lines, to clear and vivid story telling, to using metaphors that will make you put a puzzle together in his verses. ModeNine’s flow is extra fluid and floats exactly to the beat; he spits his lyrics right within the confines of whatever beat he is dealt in an effortless manner. For all his fans praying he goes commercial, there is hope because he can if he decides to.

Worthy Mentions

1. Phenom

Phenom‘s potential is obvious; all you have to do is listen to his TKG freestyle where he switches flows at will whenever the beat switched. He also delivered on all songs he featured on including Maleek Berry’s New Bounce ft Wizkid.

2. Boogey

Boogey is a fast rapper so you have to listen fast so you can follow him when he skilfully delivers his bars. The kid can rap very well and it appears that ModeNine and M.I agree and respect his skill level enough to feature him on their Occupy The Throne and iLLegal Music 2 mixtapes respectively.

3. Ikechukwu

Ikechukwu also known as Killz remains relevant in Nigerian rap music today. Killz is going the commercial route with an Igbo angle and we all check for his new joints whenever they get released.

4. IllBliss

Ibo Boy iLLBliss who dropped his new album in December of 2012 raps with a calm flow without too much force and delivers his bars in a regular talking tone which fits his size and demeanor. BOSS-type delivery, its no wonder he named his most recent album OGA BOSS.

5. Jesse Jagz

Jargo as most of us know him, has turned all the way spiritual and can rap his lungs off. In his most recent album, he spits long bars on most of the songs to a point that you actually realize that he has been rapping for a while. Above his ability to rap for long at one go, Jesse Jagz also tends to speak lots of sense; personal and social-wise in his music.

The 10 Hottest Artists in Nigeria

Article Features

Within the time span of Summer 2012 and Summer 2013, several new artists have made their entrance into the music scene. Some have made a lot of noise with their music, but only a handful of artists really had us putting their songs on repeat, making noise when a song came on and made serious impact between the aforementioned time period.

The list below is a True, undiluted run down of the Artists that shaped, defined and led music among Nigerian consumers in the past year.

10hot

10. Burna Boy

Like To Party is a testament that you can catch a hit record without following the typical music format that rules the airwaves in Nigeria. Burna Boy appeared to have come from nowhere after “Like To Party” became an overwhelming hit all over Lagos and most parts of Nigeria, but the reality is that he has been dropping music since 2011 and finally caught his biggest hit in 2012. Burna then went on to deliver a quality video for not just his first single off the L.I.F.E album but for his other strong and widely accepted singles such as Tonight and Run My Race which were produced by Aristokrat in-house producer LeriQ.

9. Timaya

The Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa is still very relevant in the grand scheme of things. After replacing his in-house producer K-Solo with Young D, his sound became more full of youthful energy and translated seamlessly among the more modern audience consuming Nigerian music today. After releasing what most of us call a banger in his “Shake your Bum Bum” single in 2012, it was a required song that had to play at least twice at any given night. Then he went drop other extra catchy singles titled “Sexy Ladies”., “Club on Fire”, “Malonogede” and solid party album UPGRADE.

8. Ice Prince

After the huge success of Oleku, and the launch of Ice Prince‘s debut album in 2011; the critics felt like it was a fluke. However, Ice silenced them with Aboki and a number of fierce freestyles. When it comes to most sought after rappers in Nigeria or Nigerian music around the world, Ice Prince definitely leads the pack and has been able to package his flow and hooks properly for commercial success. He also confirms that he is the ‘best rapper singer surely’ on TRUTH; a recent freestyle he released earlier in 2013.

7. Olamide

Truth be told, Olamide has been putting in quality work since Young Erikina. However, it appears that he started flooding the streets with music in 2012 even before his album dropped and after the success of Ilefo ILLuminati and First Of All, Olamide continues to drop heat until this day from Rayban Abacha to the more popular , Durosoke and Baddo Love.

6. Iyanya

Although Iyanya was all over the gossip sites due to his many unsuccessful relationships, Iyanya definitely dominated Nigerian music for a good period in 2012. His Kukere single took him to a level he had never been before so he and his MMM group team took full advantage by dropping another overwhelming single, “Ur Waist” ft Emma Nyra which kept him up there with both feet rooted deep. In addition, he recently added more fans to his base after touring the USA and UK during the Spring of 2013. It is agreed among many top promoters and DJs in the States that Iyanya’s USA tour has been the most successful among most Nigerian contemporary artist tours in the past 5 years.

 5. 2face Idibia

The most loved and respected artist in the Nigerian music industry, 2face Idibia did his rounds last year and killed the airwaves with his hit single Ihe Neme off his most recent studio album Away and Beyond. He then went quiet in the beginning of 2013 to prepare and participate in his wedding and honeymoon. Happy Married Life, Sir!

4. Wizkid

The StarBoy himself who has a well of talent and unnatural work ethic when it comes to things of music, stayed very relevant all through 2012 with the massive single Azonto and a plethora of good songs he has dropped with his new Starboy producers Legendury Beats and Maleek Berry. Although his name was mixed up among rumored conflict with EME, the label he is still signed to, he has managed to continue to drop hits and stay very relevant even on the international scene after dropping notable tracks like Drop It ft Wale and Blown Away with Angel.

3. Davido

If you ask most club and party goers what the hit of 2013 is so far, majority of them will probably say Gobe. Davido blew everyone away with the 1st single off his 2nd studio album and continues to drop strong singles such ask Kalo Konnect and One of A Kind. His most recent single Skelewu which dropped barely over a week ago is already on its way to claiming National Hit status. Davido has proven that he is a force to be reckoned with in the industry and continues to disappoint the naysayers.

2. D’banj

Who God has blessed, no man can curse; that is D’banj‘s story. Although he has not dropped any overwhelmingly engaging track in 2013; he killed everything with Oliver Twist in 2012 from going mainstream in the UK, to getting a Malibu worldwide placement deal for Oliver Twist song. D’banj continues to be one of the most relevant and distinct artists in the continent of Africa. D’banj is a true entertainer and anything he says, drops or headlines (in terms of shows/concerts) usually attracts a huge amount of people because we know that we will be entertained.

1. P Square

The Twin Kings of Africa!!! The Okoye twins are in a league all by themselves and continue to maintain their winning position. They brought us the massive Beautiful Onye and Chop My Money remix both last year and destabilized every huge plan any artist in the continent had of dominating the music scene. P-Square then went on to drop the killer visuals for Alingo and in 2013 delivered another widely accepted single and video Personally.

P-Square Personally occupies the #1 Spot on the ”10 Hottest Artists in Nigeria” list as carefully and objectively selected by the notjustOk Team.

Worthy Mentions

1. Banky W

The EME boss decided to go back into the studio after playing executive role in grooming Wizkid and Skales as solo artists. Mr W blessed us with 2 strong singles Yes/No and Good Good Loving and displayed to us the true essence of R&B with his 3rd studio album, R&BW.

2. May D

After the P Square and May D separation, May D  dropped the visuals for another solid single, Gat Me High after which he released So Many Tinz produced by Fliptyce before releasing his debut album on his newly formed Confam Records in 2013.

3. KCEE

KCEE, who had dropped 2 singles Okpekete and Give it to Me ft Flavour which were attempts at scoring a hit single, pleasantly surprised us all after Limpopo was released in 2013. He successfully gave fans what will probably end up being one of the top 3 songs of 2013, and followed it up with his new single Okoso.

4. Tiwa Savage

Ms. Tiwa Savage who recently got engaged and scored a well deserved Pepsi endorsement deal in 2012, remains relevant in the music scene and finally released her highly anticipated debut album, Once Upon A Time in 2013. “Eminado” (featuring Don Jazzy) is quickly becoming a fan favourite.

5. Flavour

Flavour is like the Rock Star of Nigeria who has been touring the world for majority of 2013 from his concerts in Australia, sold out show in Burkina Faso, USA Tour and a Cameroon tour coming soon. He also dropped some powerful singles like Ada Ada, Shake and Chinny Baby.

Well, there you have it. Do you agree with our list? Have your say below.

Duncan Mighty – Blow Am ft. Olamide

Features Music

Duncan Mighty and Olamide are powerhouses in their respective regions of dominance. Together they come up with a sweet song titled “Blow Am”. Nice rhythmic song. Put it on repeat.

“Young Wealth Records presents a brand new music by Duncan Mighty titled Blow Am featuring Olamide. The track features the Port Harcourt 1st son on a laid back beat merged with the pacey lyrics of the rave of the moment Olamide. Guaranteed to keep you hitting the replay button for sure.

Listen & Enjoy!”

Olamide ft Iyanya – Take It Inside

Music

New music from Olamide, as usual. This one is titled “Take It Inside” and it features another hotshot artiste Iyanya. It sounds like a song done during the Mo’hits era, with the Don-Jazzy-esque adlibs in the background.

Sweet tune.
