Burna Boy – “Way Too Big”
Burna’s critically acclaimed album “Twice As Tall” is still making waves across the globe and this track off the album speaks for itself. Burna is way too big, cool, and smart to be moving with some acts and exchanging words or proving his worth. “Because I’m way too big, way too big to be fucking with you, And be moving with you, mmm, Because I’m way too smart, way too smart to be falling in your trap” This track would certainly lift your spirits.

Following the success of his previous release titled “Aya Mi”, Wakanda Jollof crooner, Olakira released both the audio and visuals of “In My Maserati,” an infectious track inspired by his love for the luxury vehicle brand.

Word on the street is that Davido hopped on the remix of this track and now fans can’t stop listening to this track.

Shhh, Mapariwo (Don’t Shout)! Just when we thought we couldn’t handle the still buzzing “Caro” which features his label boss, Naira Marley, Zinoleesky came through with another banger. The Marlian Music multitalented singer and songwriter teamed up with producer, Trips to tell the tale of an affair that is meant to be made secret.

Ajebo Hustlers – “Barawo”
Popular music duo, Ajebo Hustlers came through with this track titled “Barawo” which is the Hausa word for thief. Produced by multi-talented music producer/singer, 1da Banton, and off their forthcoming EP “Timeless” the track seeks to end the jungle justice killing in Nigeria and Sub-Saharan Africa. It was released in remembrance of victims of the famous Aluu 4 in 2012 and also educates that the insane barbaric act is a stark reminder of what will happen when the rule of law fails and the culkture3 of impunity remains a norm.
Tiwa Savage – “Ole” ft Naira Marley
For those that have been craving for a Naira Marley and Tiwa Savage collaboration, this is it! The track sees both singers call out someone who is a thief. They threatened to deal with a partner who failed to pay up. The outro of the track also takes a swipe at the illegal spending and mismanagement of funds in Nigeria, basically corruption. The track has a powerful message, catchy lyrics, and a danceable beat.
Adekunle Gold – “Sabina”
Released off his “Afro Pop Volume One” album, the track sees Gold pining for a second chance from “Sabina“. Adekunle begs her to take him back and give him one more chance because he just realized that he played himself like a Nintendo game. Even if this track cries around the topic of unrequited love, its still a jamming bop. “Sabina, Sabina, Sabina, Let me fight for you, Sabina, Sabina, Sabina, Don’t give up on me now, Sabina, Sabina, Sabina, I want to fight for you, Sabina, Sabina, Sabina” Listen and enjoy!
