Teni Craves Super Powers In New Single ‘Power Rangers’

Over the weekend, the 2018 breakout star and award-winning Afropop sensation, Teni released a new single ‘Power Rangers‘ as well as its accompanying video. This is an impressive follow up to her last effort, ‘Sugar Mummy‘ which didn’t exactly make a dent in the industry despite its hilarious video.

Produced by Jaysynth Beats, ‘Power Rangers‘ is a mid-tempo Afropop record with scintillating guitar riffs centred around love.

On the record, Teni battles for the affection of a love interest who has other admirers. The self-acclaimed Makanaki is a twelve-year-old again as she wishes she had superpowers to help her surpass several obstacles just to be with her sweetheart. No doubt, this is a radio-friendly record that’s easy to sink to.

Enjoy the single and the Tokah McBaror-directed video.

Zamir And YCee Are Blunt And Vicious On New Record ‘Anti’

Zamir has teamed up with YCee for his new single titled ‘Anti‘. This is Zamir’s first release since his year-opening Kida Kudz-assisted jam, ‘Jan 1st‘.

The new Tochi Bedford-produced single is no doubt one of the hardest hip-hop records out of Nigeria at the moment. It has this dark and intense feel to it with trippy keys and hard-hitting kicks.  Zamir sets the record straight that he’s anti-social and just wants his space and circle as tight as it can get. “I don’t like people, yeah I know” he declares as he opens the record.

In his verse, Zamir also recounts his musical journey and his emergence in the music industry. YCee’s verse finds the new CEO delivering one of his best-featured performances this year with a polished flow and airtight delivery.

The video which Zamir has teased on his social media pages is expected to be released very soon so watch this space for it.

Johnny Drille Appreciates His Dad In New Single ‘Papa’

The sweet-singing Johnny Drille isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. All through the year, the Mavin Records signee has been steady with his releases as well as freestyles which he shares periodically on his social media pages. Now, Johnny Drille is back with another self-produced record titled ‘Papa‘ a few weeks after the release of ‘Finding Efe‘. This, therefore, makes it Johnny’s

As implied by the title, the song finds the folk singer appreciating his dad and crooning about his spirituality spurred and serviced by his father. Backed mainly by stifling strings and solemn keys, Johnny Drille opens the record by recounting the fatherly advice he was given when he was much younger to have his life guided and guarded by faith and prayers. He then describes how his father keeps in touch with him regularly and reminds him not to let go of his spirituality in the strange land he currently finds himself.

His story may sound familiar to most Nigerian youths born into Christain homes thus making the record a highly relatable one. His vocals are calm, soothing, and at a point powerful, filling the record with so many emotions that can melt the heart and even move some to tears.

I’ve waited so long to put this song out. Fathers don’t ever get as much appreciation as they deserve. It is my most personal song yet and I hope you connect with it on some level” he wrote on Twitter.
