When the sons and grandson of the progenitor of Afrobeat come together to perform for Global Citizen Live, there is only one song that is perfect for the occasion. Water No Get Enemy by Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
The only way Crown of Clay could have been any better was for Olamide to have a verse on it. As a matter of fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Pheelz or someone else either leaks or release a version featuring Olamide in the future.
I hope this masterpiece gets discovered and appreciated by Blacks and Africans all over the world.
Some days should be reserved for rendering praises to God. Today is one of such days, and Awa gbe O ga is our song of choice.
Off the collaborative project by T.Y. Bello and Tope Alabi, The Spirit of Light, this song is an attempt at describing a section of the endlessness of God’s majesty.
When will we be blessed with a Johnny Drille and Asa collaboration? And how long do we have to wait before getting Asa on the I Said What I Said Podcast with FK and Jollz?
In the meantime, all I can do is hope the lockdown on events gets lifted soon enough so we can start looking forward to experiencing Asa live, and in-person again.
Imagine the amount of damages we could have avoided if we had the right guide all through our journey.
If you wait until your moment of weakness, exhaustion, confusion, or lack, before seeking for the Ultimate Guide, there are some irreparable damages, or at least scars, that you might have suffered already.
I can’t remember the first time I heard Nicki Minaj’s Pills N Potions, but I can still remember how I felt when I heard it.
As a matter of fact, that feeling comes back afresh each time I hear it.
What is this ado about Joy Oladokun’s voice?
You are only asking that because you have not heard her sing. Honestly, there is nothing and no one I can compare her voice to.
There is no attempt to compete with the dancing ability of Michael Jackson. Instead, just like the song, a relaxed Lagos vibe is the feel.
Someone who isn’t energetic or exactly a dancer won’t feel out of place listening to or dancing along. I know a seventy years old Michael Jackson would enjoy dancing to this.
The message in monsters you made might have gone over people’s heads. But I know when “the youth, or the next people coming after us” come to “continue” as prophesied by the man quoted at the beginning, “monsters you made” will be one of their rallying anthems.
With this song, I hope you have not lost your sense of wonder. I hope you can approach His presence and marvel at His splendor.
I believe you will approach the throne of grace, and find strength for times like this.
At this point, if any political party runs with the promise of fixing every shock absorber in Nigeria, they have my vote. In fact, I will campaign for them.
In 2021, just like in every year that preceded it, a lot of things will be competing and demanding for your attention, but you get to decide all that matters to you.
I have decided that Christ is number one for me. He comes before everything else.
The recent Stingy Men Association wave that swept through Nigerian social media also swept in a couple of songs that buttressed their points. Funny Identity was one of such.
Constantly abiding in God’s word, in His grace, in His will, brings peace into our life that is incomparable.
A peace you can’t find elsewhere, that the world did not give, and it cannot take away.
After experiencing multiple heartbreaks, there is a tendency to seal up your heart to love, ensuring you never get hurt again. But what happens when the “right one” comes along? Can they cut through the barriers and get you bleeding love?
When Vector released King Kong in late 2014, many remixes and covers were released. The best of the bunch for me was Queen Kong by Pryse and Eva Alordiah.
This was the song that introduced me to Mo Eazy. He is an awesome rapper, on par with any rapper in Nigeria or across the seas. I’ll dare anyone to listen to the song and say otherwise.
(Those who just had their hearts shattered are excused though.)
On ShukuBamBam, Phenom starts out strong. Characterizing himself to the fictional King Kong. No one is stronger. Very few can match his appetite for havoc and domination. And that is an apt description of Phenom’s rap prowess.
Ebe by Sola Allyson is a song of prayer. A psalm of prayer that I believe we all need to render to God before we proceed with this year.
Ginger is inarguably the best song on Wizkid’s Made In Lagos album.
Thankfully, Wizkid and Burna Boy were generous enough to bless this song with a video.
There is a hack to life that can only be gotten when you turn your eyes upon Jesus. When you shut out the world and look to Him. Absolutely Trusting, absolutely dependent, absolutely invested, and totally given over to Him.
Other than the fact that the opening line is more suicidal than wishful thinking, Billionaire by Teni is one of the best songs to come out of Nigeria in the last decade.
Koroba by Tiwa Savage is the best musical depiction of the concave, convoluted and warped mindset of most Nigerians.
At its release, there was a lot of postulation that the song was an open lauding, endorsement, and encouragement of prostitution.
I first heard Triumphant on Olamide’s album, Carpe Diem. For now, I must state, Olamide is awesome at making albums. He has singles that may not be up to his usual standard, but when it comes to albums, He is top-tier only.
Today, a lot of people are resuming work for the year. I believe Wetin We Gain by Victor AD is a great song to get back into work mode.
And when I wish you a happy financial new year, you would do well to wish me the same.
All I want is to live in grace. For my life to be an expression of the extravagance, that is when God chooses one to be a manifestation of His wonders.
I have never thought myself to be a culprit in Christ’s death. I know I made a gain from his death and resurrection, but I never wondered what role I played in his death.
There are over a thousand and one songs that one could start the year 2021 with, but in my opinion, Ayo by Simi is the best out there.
How best do you describe that feeling when the love is past its sell-by date? That is exactly what Tiana Major9 does on same space.
At this point, it must be acknowledged that Olamide is great at making hits and albums. “Who You Epp” is not an exception.
