Kizz Daniel is back with his second release of the year, ‘Lie’. Lie is a song in response to an anonymous lady to know his love was true and he had only good intentions for her. A jam? You tell us!

Zlatan ft Buju – Alubarika

Zlatan and Buju is not the combo you would normally expect but it surprisingly works. Streets meet late as the duo sing about hustling and grace. Buju’s run in 2021 is unbelievable. He is featured on hits, his songs constantly make the charts.

Yemi Alade – Ogogoro

In anticipation of her upcoming album due August 13th, 2021, Mama Africa as she is popularly called, has released Ogogoro, a song about Enjoyment. Yemi is really on a row as she will be accompanying her album release with a world tour. We love to see it.

Naira Marley – Drug test

Naira Marley is back in his element! His recent releases are reminiscent of 2019 when he was arrested by Nigerian Police and proceeded to give us the biggest hits of his career. With Koleyewon, I’m coming and now Drug test, Naira Marley is a man in form.

Niniola – Too Sweet

Niniola really owned house music and made it her own in Nigeria. The Amapiano sound, a variation of afro house music has been trending for a while now and more artists are incorporating this sound. On her last album, she wanted to prove to the industry that her vocal prowess is in impeccable so she gave a lot of singing. But on her next album, she promises Amapiano, Too Sweet is just a little taste of what is expected to come.

Rudeboy – RudyKillus

Rude Boy has finally released his much anticipated solo album, 4 years after he split from the duo that he and his brother started in 1999, P Square. The project has 12 tracks with no features and is heavily produced by one of the most respected in the game, Chris Stringz.

Dremo ft Patoranking – Wonder

In a world with many questions and not enough answers, Dremo gives us more things to think about in “Wonder,” his latest single featuring Patoranking. Dremo is one of the most exciting rappers in Nigeria, wonder is another song that helps him cement that status.

Need Me – Gyakie

Another love song from this talented Ghanian artist. ‘Need Me’ goes out to people that are willing to sacrifice everything for the people they love. This song is powerful, it’s a song for the heart and the message that is being sent out is that “love is a beautiful thing, and if you happen to find love, enjoy the most out of it”. “I’m very excited about this release because it’s been a year since I dropped music and I know my fans have been yearning for it. It’s finally here and I believe it’s going to be another global wave!
