Davido – Nwa Baby
Definitely the number one song in Nigeria and Africa right now. A crowd-pleasing love song as good as any, “Nwa Baby” celebrates a resilient relationship (especially if “Assurance” was a tale of early bliss in a relationship).
Patoranking – Heal D World
“Let’s send love to every length and breath, let’s show love while we still alive, not in death” pleads Patoranking over sweeping orchestral arrangements and a celestial choir which carries his message of self-worth and empathy among mankind as a remedy for the world’s ills.
Lova Lova – Tiwa Savage ft. Duncan Mighty
An excellent guest verse by Duncan Mighty brings good value to this duet with Tiwa Savage, whose honeyed singing voice and ever astute songwriting are easily some of the best in afropop.
Mayorkun – Posh
Award-winning music star Mayorkun aims to conquer once again with his latest single “Posh”. An audacious number produced by NorthBoi, featuring all the elements of a massive afro-pop smash and a provoking performance fated to get the party started.
Olamide – Motigbana
Olamide’s latest single, “Motigbana,” is a satisfying revival of galala done with an ever engaging stank and swag.
Tekno – Choko
Brilliant song-making (and song-titling) about requiting love from Tekno, artist who rather than tinker with different styles, continues to refine his unique stitching of simplified lyrics and playful and memorable melodies.
Yemi Alade – Oh My Gosh
A pair of affecting avowals to a lover. “Elele” ably combines a proven and confident singing voice with treated vocals, while the production on “On My Gosh,” which rides the “soco wave,” is bang on trend.
Simi – I Dun Care
Delicate vocal beauty carries nonchalance about sticking to a love interest against popular opinion in Simi’s “I Dun Care.”
M.I Abaga – Do You Know Who You Are
“You cannot build each other up, how can you build an economy? How you think is how you are, it’s just basic neurology” goes M.I on the salient song on his most salient album, A Study on Self Worth: Yxng Dxnzl, released last week and aided by the ethereal beauty in Tay Iwar’s singing voice.
Mr. P – Wookie Wookie ft. Nyanda
With his last number Ebeano still buzzing, Mr. P puts out a new number titled “Wookie Wookie” featuring South African vocalist, Nyanda.
Mr. P of the defunct P-Square group keeps making big moves everytime. The P-Classic Records boss never stops thrilling his fans as he puts out the dancehall banger titled “Wookie Wookie”
