Overview of Top Naija Songs of the Week: Burna Boy – Rema – Bigiano – 9ice – Zoro
The music grind never stops, which means every week, we’ll definitely see brand new releases from some of our favorite artists, as well as new cats looking to catch their big break. It’s the same all over the world, and Nigeria is no exception.
Last week saw new videos from Burna Boy, Blaqbonez, and Bigiano (yes, THE Bigiano). We also got a mega international collaboration from Rema, 6LACK, Tion Wayne & Manny Norte. Song releases include 9ice, Wale Turner, Zoro, Oxlade, Charass, Rayce, and more!
Check out 13 of last week’s best releases below.
Burna Boy‘s “Odogwu” has drawn mixed reactions from Nigerian music fans since its release. With such heavy Igbo-laced visuals, one can expect the buzz to pick up in the coming weeks.
Capital Xtra’s Manny Norté, a foremost radio DJ, presenter and producer, pulled together Rema (Nigeria), 6LACK (U.S.A) & Tion Wayne (United Kingdom) for a solid Tri-Nation collaboration.
The outcome is such a big Dub!
Afro Dancehall act, Ketchup served up visuals to “Tripping“; a song off the SKILAHMATIC album. You can’t practice Social Distancing while listening to this joint. You gotta bump n grind.
THE Bigiano of Shayo fame makes a strong comeback with a fresh bop tagged “Go Crazy“. He’s clearly still got it!
The self-acclaimed Nigerian Adele finally dropped this cut after teasing it on social media.
Is it just me, or does this kinda sorta have a Rema feel to it? A jam still!
Bella Alubo recruits Ezi Emela straight outta the UK Afro-Urban scene for this Afro Soul cut. The joint is off Bella’s “Summer’s Over” EP.
#Random: Ezi recently announced she was quitting music. I wonder if this signals a change of heart.
