As our fav rapper would say 'Boyz are not smiling', we are not smiling over the fact that 2Baba is releasing the same album twice (haba!).
We are most unhappy that he has the guts to sell the album for =N= 1,000 (with the pretty quality production and product delivery too, ok we are smiling about all the freebies sha). We are definitely not happy as regards his previous escapades and controversies with all those women not that its our business (oooh!!! wait, IT IS our business). We even had our guy Razor Blee G make a spoof about it, its hilarious!!!
Mix an angry smiley, a super-fresh tee and a veteran rap alter ego known as 'Joe Spasm' and what you've got is "Boys Are Not Smiling".
It was a lovely weekend in Gidi town; devoid of traffic and gifted with 'oh so lovely' weather. What better way could I have reviewed Beautiful Imperfection than loading it on my ipod and taking a loooooong drive to a party in VGC. With my tank filled up and my belly empty (standard bachelor sturvs), I put in my earphones and let the music seep in slowly. Why Can't We Be.... Haaaaapy... Woooo Hoooo...
We've had our eyes on this soulful diva (Naira) for a while, its amazing how she has matured; she has carved a niche for herself with her genre which she tags 'Urban-Soul' and her latest album is evidence of her passion. It's a joy to hear her drop those lines, they would definitely get you thinking; she leads you into a world of lyricism, charisma and energy experienced like no other.
This one was HIGHLY anticipated! Mo'Cheddah warmed her way into Nigerian hearts with the release of her "If You Want Me" single where she featured Othello. She's been hailed by many as naija's music heiress and has been featured by leading brands Henessy and MTV Base. 'Nuf said, press play... The album is a whooping 15 tracks! 3 cleverly disguised interludes, but 15 tracks all the same...
Falz aka 'Falz The Bahd Guyz' one of our fav rappers had us cracking up(still does) when he released his debut hit single 'Shakara'. We had it on replay, non-stop, all day for almost a week. All our expectations were crowned when he released his debut mixtape titled 'Shakara' last year december and we were basking in the euphoria of the bahdguyz.
Though a newcomer in the most aggressive and competetive market in nigeria (or even the whole world), Saeon (Pronounced 'cy-on') is undoubtably one of the hottest female sensations bound to hit the music industry. Its what we call a bad case of multi-talented, she spits flaming lyrics and is also blessed with mad vocals; a combination that gives her sound both subtlelty and the 'oomf' that captures the listener.
Tiwa's been on our radar since I heard her voice on her song titled 'Middle Passage'. It was such a soulful song; with deep meaning; the music was piercing through my very being. I could relate to the song then because the song basically described where 'we' were at that point in time.
