Award-winning Afro-soul singer and songwriter, Aramide has released a new single – her first of the year- ‘Baba Abule‘, in a seemingly unlikely collaboration with the self-acclaimed Alaga Ibile, Reminisce.
This is a folk record that finds Aramide warding off advances from her persistent admirer, Baba Abule. On the other hand, Reminisce in his verse plays the role of the promiscuous Baba Abule, trying to woo the songstress, letting her know the perks of her returning his affection. Produced by SizzlePro, ‘Baba Abule‘ is rich in instrumentation particularly soft percussions and strutting rock guitar.
Enjoy the single above.

Amidst her few and far between releases, Tems has done well to leave a lasting impression. It has taken her just two singles and guest spots on a couple of projects to convince us that she is one of the most talented singers in the country rising through the ranks. Many could even swear by the old gods and the new that she is the future of Afro-Soul and R&B. And she is now back to take it a step further with her new firey single titled ‘Try Me‘.
A follow up to her year-opening stunner, ‘Looku Looku‘, this single find Tems teaming up with Remy Baggins on the production with additional vocals from Dami Oniru.
Over a simple and laidback beat that lays a good ground for her thrilling vocals to shine, a spirited Tems is on a mission to set herself and her Rebel Gang free from oppression as she continuously asks why her subjugator keeps pushing her to the wall. On Twitter, she explained that this new single is a breakout anthem for the oppressed, underrated and understated who have been suppressed from use and abuse.
With a powerful sing-along-hook, this song is so infectious such that’d get you in the zone right from your first listen. If there was ever any doubt about Tems skill as a dazzling vocalist and songwriter, ‘Try Me‘ puts that to rest.
Suffice to say that this song comes highly recommended from us at the PGM Club. Enjoy.Post Views: 1,467

The alté movement has been a strong force in shaping the Nigerian music, art, and fashion spaces for the past couple of years. From Odunsi the Engine to Santi, Wavy The Creator, Lady Donli, and many others, the movement has been a strong force in shaping and redefining how Nigerian music is perceived all over the world. But “alté”, owes a lot of its roots to DRB Lasgidi, a collective made up of Teezee, Fresh L, and the serial feature-killer, BOJ.
Today, the trio releases their long-awaited debut album, “Pioneers.” and reaffirms their pertinent role in the founding of the culture-shifting movement.
Speaking about the album in a recent interview with Native mag, they express that “as you develop yourself as a person, and if you care about your craft and what you’re doing, you realise that there are some certain things you need to do to get things done. Life happens and you become forced to take things more seriously. When you get to adulthood, you have to be forced to translate your passion into bar.”
As leaders of the new school, they bring along an all-star àlte cast of Santi, Tems, Lady Donli, Prettyboy D-O, Wani, and more on the 12-track album. The project also features an appearance from street generalissimo, Olamide who guested on ‘Shomo’ one of the lead singles off the album.
The album is credited with production works from an array of skilled producers such as Pheelz, Adey, Genio, Higo, and the Beatmeister himself, GMK.
One thing that strikes you as you try to give “Pioneers” a spin is its eccentric cover art. The Basquiat-esque album art titled Midnight Friends is designed by Nigerian visual artist Anedu Edozien. A perfect fit for the iconic album, it portrays the community, style, creativity, and the rebelliousness of Lagos youth culture.
This album comes highly recommended from us at The PGM Club.Post Views: 399
