Best New Music: Olamide - Joeboy - Kuami Eugene - Bella Shmurda - Darey

Best New Music is our weekly roundup of songs to listen to. It's been a hectic past week in Nigeria, with the #EndSARS protests spreading across the country and in the diaspora. In the midst of the outcry, some excellent music was released. Check out our selection below.


Olamide ft. Omah Lay - Infinity

Olamide dropped his latest album - Carpe Diem - over the weekend, and instantly dominated all the streaming charts. At the time of posting this, the Omah Lay-assisted "Infinity" is the #1 record on Apple Music's Top 100 Nigeria.



Bella Shmurda ft. Zlatan - Cash App

The buzz surrounding this single was heavy, even before it dropped. Now that it's out, it's easy to see why. Though I suspect NBC and EFCC might have a thing or 2 to say in the coming months.


Chike ft. Mayorkun - If You No Love

Chike wowed everyone with his album - Boo of the Booless - at the start of the year. He aims to consolidate that with the release of one of the buzz singles off the project, "If You No Love" featuring Mayorkun.

Joeboy - Lonely

Whenever you hear "Jo...Joeboy pon deck", you already know it's a bop!

Joeboy has carved a beautiful niche for himself as the loverboy of the industry. Listen to "Lonely" below.


DJ Jimmy Jatt - Worry Me ft. Buju, 2baba

It's a merger of generations as Uncle Jimmy features 2baba and Buju, one of the new-school prospects in the game. Gotta love the "Zaro Kome" sample, a 2000s hit by Adaz.


Umu Obiligbo x Victor AD - On God

Indigenous/Traditional Igbo singers, Umu Obiligbo team up with Victor AD for a very positive song tagged "On God."

Darey - Show Me Love ft. Teni

Veteran R&B star, Darey just dropped a new EP titled "Way Home." One of the stand-out tracks has to be "Show Me Love" featuring Teni.

Be sure to listen to the whole EP.


Phyno - Never

With his protege, Cheque enjoy a breakthrough season with "Zoom", Penthauze boss dished out a brand new song tagged "Never".

B Red - Kingdom Come ft. 2baba

DMW act, B Red finally released The Jordan Album over the weekend. One of the stand-out tracks is the 2baba feature titled "Kingdom Come." It's a pretty enjoyable project.

Ghanaian Artist of the Year, Kuami Eugene just dropped his sophomore album - Son of Africa - over the weekend. The concurrently released single is "Show Body" featuring Falz.

DolapoTheVibe - Tension ft. Barry Jhay

US-based Afrobeats act, DolapoTheVibe is one of my personal favorite new acts. Her talent is on full display in her latest EP - Unanticipated.

Listen to "Tension" featuring Barry Jhay.


Juls - Mmayewa ft. Twitch 4Eva, Quamina MP

Juls recruits two highly promising Ghanaian acts, Twitch 4Eva and Quamina MP on his latest record "Mmayewa."


Robin Joe - Fejiro

If you're a Johnny Drille fan, and you've been wondering if anybody else can make that sort of music in Nigeria, look no further. Robin Joe is that guy! Watch "Fejiro" below.
