I must admit that it’s interesting to see how well artists from every genre of Nigerian music are doing, especially in recent time that the demand for the Afrobeats sound has proliferated.
As our music is entering into popular places all over the world, our acts are improving at their crafts. This is noticeable when you pay attention to the score of songs being released.
We have pieced together a list of songs you should listen to this week.
Gentility – Melvitto feat. Wande Coal
Wande blesses us yet again. Doing justice to Melvitto‘s spiritual instrumental, Wande Coal sings “Gentility ko n se stupidity”. The King of Afropop proves his dexterity.
Mo Le Jo – Barry Jhay
Barry Jhay continues his quest to put fuji in a new light. The young singer sings on a normal tempo, delivering lyrics meant to motivate the listener.
Maayaa – Juls feat Tiggs Da Author & Santi
UK-based Ghanaian producer Juls teams up with Alte act Santi and British-Tanzanian artist Tiggs Da Author which yields a subtle Highlife sound.
Lavida – D’Prince feat. Rema
Rema‘s sound is beginning to resonate with a huge audience and D’Prince taps into the fountain of rich sounds to flesh out a banging tune.
Lenge Lenge – Patoranking
Adapting Fela‘s call and response style, Patoranking brings us a sweet song Lenge Lenge where he describes a certain type of woman and his attraction toward her.
