NEW ACTS

New acts are popping up every week and it’s our mission to unveil them as it happens. 

Martyn Chika Introduces His Coming Trilogy With His “Paper Planes” EP

Burgeoning rapper Martyn Chika, is re-introducing himself to the Nigerian audience with his newly released EP “Paper Planes”. Surprisingly, this release is just a 6-track teaser off his upcoming trilogy project of the same title. 

The “Paper Planes” trilogy which is scheduled for release in the next few months will be a 3-part project with a total of 21 songs.

Entirely produced by Evan Beatz, this project is a diverse body of work that tells a coming-of-age-story of the 25-year-old Lagos based rapper. With a vivid storytelling, the self-ascribed ‘Lyrical Lion’ gives the listeners a quick tour around his creative mind and history across the six tracks. 

According to Chika,  “the songs on the trilogy are based on experiences and ideas I’ve had for a long time, but I’ve been unable to properly share. The Paper Planes Trilogy is about finally letting them go into the world. It’s very diverse and shows different aspects of my personality, so I really think that there’s something for everyone on the project.”

Bringing along his clean delivery, lyrical depth, and impressive rhythmic abilities, Martyn hopes to make his mark and leave a good first impression with this project.

Listen to the project above and let us know what you think. 

BankyOnDBeatz & Muyiwa Akhigbe drop ‘Hold You Down’ with Boom General

Still in the season of love, BankyOnDBeatz and Muyiwa Akhigbe are back with their third Afro-futurist team up titled ‘Hold You Down’. And on this record they bring along a guest, Boom General as they expand their freshly crafted sound to new frontiers.

Last year, the pair joined forces to craft a new sound which they introduced us to with ‘Outta My System’. They took it a step further with the well-received ‘Better’ and now they introduce us to another facet of the nascent and mutating sound.

Over the scintillating BankyOnDBeatz’ production, Muyiwa reassures his lover of his affection, letting her know he’s always got her back.

Boom General in the closing verse comes through with a scene-stealing feature coming through with his patios-laced verse wrapped in an airtight delivery. He finds a home in this dancehall influenced sound and he takes it home leaving a solid impression on first-time listeners.

The pair has made a promise of an adventurous sonic experience and with this new release, ‘Hold You Down’ they are making good on that promise.

Listen to the record here.

What’s new in Music this week? That’s the question we aim to answer. 

Mo’Believe Unveils Tracklist For Coming “Big Daddy Mo” EP

Just a couple of weeks back, Urban-Folklore singer Mo’Believe shared the devastating news that he had lost all his studio-equipment to a fire outbreak. Before that, the singer had been gearing up for the release of his much-teased EP, “Big Daddy Mo.” And much to our delight, the resolute singer isn’t letting that setback hinder the release of the project.

Just a few days ago, the singer shared the release date and tracklist of the coming project via his social media pages. According to the post, the 6-track EP which only guests Priceless AY would be released on Friday, March 6.

‘Big Daddy Mo,” his sophomore EP would come just two years after his well-received introductory release, “Ariwo Eko.”

Earlier in January, Mo’Believe gave us ‘Energy 2020’ which we thought to be the first taste of the coming EP. Although a very short and sweet affair, Mo delivers his 2020 manifesto over a fast-paced Audiomonkey-produced beat, spiced with African percussions.

Mo started the year with dreams, prayers and aspirations like the rest of us. And across this declarative track, he speaks them into existence and urges us to do the same.

Efe Oraka Joins Forces With M.I Abaga on ‘Zion’

Last week, Efe Oraka released her first single of 2020 featuring one of Nigeria’s most decorated rappers, M.I Abaga. This record titled ‘Zion’ is also one of the lead singles off her soon-to-be-released debut EP, “Magic.”

The first thing that gets you about the record is it’s beautiful cartoonish cover art. Then Efe’s stunning vocals come right after to blow you away completely over the soft-hitting DOZ-Tay Iwar production.  With beautiful writing, Efe turns her pain into poetry as she croons about the recent ordeals with her erring lover.

Intoxicated by sparkling affection, this lover made initial promises that he’s finding so hard to keep now and Efe Oraka is struggling to keep up with his inconsistencies. “I’m tired of trying….I’m so sick of trying” an obviously spent Efe sings. 

In a gruff and sexy voice, M.I comes to wrap up the song with an impressive verse that leads you straight to the repeat button.

Enjoy the record above.

The Nollywood-inspired video was premiered a few hours ago on The FADER and it lends it voice to the growing discuss on the sex for grades topic in Nigerian Universities.

Speaking about the message-laden visual, the director Shaun Kalu says, “the most telling, being the intention to show that we (the younger generation) are well aware of societal and cultural issues — especially for women. I’m more than willing to inculcate that into the art.”

Crayon Is Bound To Win Over Unbelievers With ‘Kpano’

When Mavin newbie Crayon released his debut and introductory “Cray Cray” EP, a lot of people didn’t know what to make of it. Undoubtedly, the boy had talent but many just couldn’t help seeing him in the shadow of Mavin’s golden boy, Rema.

Crayon was officially unveiled on Mavins’ Don Jazzy-led posse cut, ‘All is in Order’ that got people asking questions. A couple of weeks after, he also laid down a solid hook for Ladipoe’s fling with Afropop, ‘Based on Kpa’. 

But with ‘So Fine’ a standout cut off his EP, Crayon laid every doubt to rest about his talent delivering a soothing yet body-moving love number that radiates confidence rarely found in up and coming acts. And with a label with far-reaching tentacles like Mavin, Crayon’s name was everywhere yet the project recorded a middling success. 

Now, the singer has regrouped and is bent on winning over unbelievers with his first post-“Cray Cray” single, ‘Kpano’. 

Like most releases in this streaming-led climate, ‘Kpano’ is a very short but sweet affair, running just over two minutes of magic. On this stunner, the young singer needs no assists as he sounds super-charged crooning about his love interest over a heavily packed Ozedikus beat headed straight for the clubs.l

Steaming with overwhelming crossover potential, this might just be the spark Crayon needs to propel him to mainstream consciousness and perhaps dominance.

Enjoy the record above.
