Show Dem Camp is out with their first project of the year These Buhari Times. By now, SDC fans are familiar with their table-shaking Clone Wars projects and as the fourth instalment, These Buhari Times is no different.
The LP explores issues from internet fraud, lazy Nigerian youth-ing, fair weather friendships to toxic masculinity. The Spax-produced project, mixed and mastered by AudioGrease Monkey features Ladipoe, Vector, Tems, Cina Soul, Sir Dauda, M.I, Phlow, Dap The Contract and Rotex.

Last week, Adekunle Gold sent a heartfelt newsletter, sharing a hilarious come-up story of him sliding into Don Jazzy’s DMs for opportunities as a budding graphics artist. This was an attempt to inspire his fans to take charge of their dreams and continue to bank on themselves. Adekunle Gold isn’t that ‘struggling’ graphics artist anymore. He is now one of Nigeria’s brightest music stars. Yet, he is still on a never-ending path of self-discovery, a redefining journey of his art and his brand. And he is very happy to take us along on this thrilling voyage.
AG’s swift evolution into a popstar is almost complete. You can easily tell from his recent pop-leaning releases as well as his interesting fashion choices. He is substituting his signature traditional African sound for something more pop-centric, trendy and synth-led. This is almost a 360 from the AG we all met in 2016.
In a fast-changing game where its golden rule says “evolve or die,” you can simply tell that Gold isn’t ready to be a victim of natural selection. And guess what? We are enjoying every bit of it!
Today, May 1, Adekunle Gold continues the compelling journey to his coming album “Afropop” with a new single titled ‘Something Different’. This new offering is the story of a romance that should have been. A classic case of unrequited love. Despite the feelings they shared, they simply wanted different things. The noble Adekunle Gold wanted a relationship rooted in love. His love interest, on the other hand, wants something more transactional. A romance helmed by financial security. “No money, no honey,” she insists.
In all its lament-laced storytelling, ‘Something Different’ still comes across as soothing and melodious. This all thanks to AG’s candied vocals and BlaiseBeatz’s soft but dazzling production, well-spiced with soul-stirring guitar and horn riffs.
Enjoy this new offering from Adekunle Gold and tell us what you think.

It’s always amazing to see how far Tems has come over the past year. With just three singles under her belt as well as a handful of features, she already sits as of Nigeria’s most promising stars. The soul-stirring singer stole the heart of Nigerians with her ode to an erring lover ‘Mr Rebel’ and ‘Looku Looku’ which made many keep tabs on her progress. She then followed this up with her empowering anthem ‘Try Me’ that vaulted her to a new level of mainstream awareness. By the end of 2019, Tems was already a household name. And ever since ‘Try Me’, she has been on a streak of stellar guest appearances with SDC, Lady Donli, Odunsi and most recently Khalid on ‘Know Your Worth’ with Davido.
Well, the 2-time Headies winner is back with a surprise release, one she describes as “a gift to the gang.” Titled ‘These Days’, this 2020 debut finds her going back to her introspective self, reflecting on her love story which hasn’t exactly been a trip to Disneyland. As she sings “I Knew, you knew that you were never humble,” you can tell she saw the signs from afar but ignored it and now she’s paying the price. “And these days are made from the pain/ These nights are not full of stars,” she sings in the chorus.
But all hope is not lost. Things are just sour, not rotten. There’s still a shot at redemption. “Can you please make up your mind yeah/ cause you’re running out of options” she warns. Tems wants reassurances, but a half-assed one as she demands “tell me that you’ll feel again/ You’ll be with me to the grave.”
Enjoy this single produced by RVdical The Kid and engineered by Omeiza above.
