ShowDemCamp – Clone Wars V the Algorithm

The best duo out of Nigeria right now! Show Dem Camp have slowly cemented their name in the Nigerian music industry with their unbelievable chemistry, catchy lines, smooth beats, and knack for features. The Duo has released the 5th project in their ‘Clone Wars’ series and it features a mix of established artists and upcoming acts. Reminisce, Ladipoe, Mojo, Shalom Dubas, Jesse Jagz, Tomi Thomas, Tomi Owo, Ogranya, Moss, and Alpha Ojini all bless the project with verses.

Omah Lay – Understand

Arguably 2020’s break-out star, Omah Lay is back with his first single of 2021. This sound is a different vibe from his usual. Someone might have broken the man’s heart as he’s reflective of his stance on romance and gets very emotional in his lyrics. Yet he still manages to package it in a melody that gets your head bumping.

Reminisce ft Westsyde – Hello E

Reminisce is building up to the release of his new album. He follows up his earlier release, featuring Olamide, with a more upbeat vibe. If you’re looking for a song to get you pumped before a night out, then this is the one for you!

Bella Shmurda – High Tension 2.0

Hot boy Bella has been flying the flag for street music ever since he popped onto the scene. He’s been on a hot streak since 2021 and he follows it up with the release of his second project, High Tension 2.0.

The Cavemen – Selense

The Cavemen couldn’t have expected their 2020 album ‘ROOTS’. Before the project, the duo was more famous for providing backup vocals and instrumentals for upcoming acts. Their decision to be on the front page and put out their own work was one of the best decisions they could have made. Selense is their first single of 2021.

Boj ft Zamir & Amaarae – Money & Laughter

When you have two champions of alté music on a track then you can expect something special. Boj has really mastered this niche that he and his peers have cornered for a few years now, and Amaarae is simply killing everything she’s featured on.

Adekunle Gold ft Lucky Daye – Sinner

And if you are single while listening to my new single Sinner, don’t forget, AG baby will always be your baby.” Adekunle Gold wrote in a message to his fans. He teams up with American singer Lucky Daye for this beautiful and heartfelt love song.

Phyno – Bia

A champion for the people from the Eastern part of Nigeria, Phyno stays repping the Igbo people with his music. He’s staying on-brand with his first release of 2021 and his fans will certainly be delighted about this one.

Dr. Dolor ft Buju – Baba N’la

Oh boy! Buju is on a hot run in 2021. Everything he touches just seems to bang and this one is no different. Dr. Dolor will hope that Buju’s magic touch pushes this song to the top of the charts.

Aramide ft Boy Breed – Down for You

Co-produced by the highly talented Type A and SizzlePro, ‘Down for You’ is Afro-soul singer, Aramide’s comeback jam and it features identical brothers Boybreed.
