Wani Appreciates Insistent Fans With His First Drop Of 2020, ‘All My Ladies’

Just a few days after announcing and celebrating his deal with Apple’s artist services company, Platoon, one of Nigeria’s most promising acts on the rise, Wani has released a new single titled ‘Áll My Ladies’. Wani had opened the year dishing out killer-feature appearances on Prettyboy DO’s love number, ‘Mentally’ as well as DRB LAsgidi’s ‘I Swear’ off their much-celebrated and long-awaited debut album “Pioneers”. Now, the Nigerian-American singer is here to remind us of his jaw-dropping talents that made us fall in love with him in the first place almost 11 months since his last single, ‘No Love/ Fast Life’ featuring DO and Minz. 

This new single ‘All My Ladies’ is produced by Adey who lays out a thrilling and eclectic mid-tempo tune on which Wani takes his fans and lovers through his journey in music. The record builds upon well-diced samples from Ryan Bowser’s ‘Áhh’, Diana King’s ‘Shy Guy’ as well as national monster hit ‘Shako Mo’ by the Remedyies. Wani also dedicates this record to his unrelenting fans, particularly the ladies.

With the follow up to his well-received debut EP, “Lagos City”, ‘All My Ladies’ serves a promise of more music to come. It aims to reassure the fans that have been holding out their hands for music from the promising star since the beginning of the year, while also promising them many more on the way. As he offers in the new record, “if you got love show me don’t wait till when I get on.”

Enjoy The Video For BOJ’s ‘Abracadabra’ With Davido & Mr Eazi

After joining Teezee and Fresh L to release the long-awaited DRB Lasigi album, “Pioneers”, Alte royalty BOJ is back with a new single. This comes about four months since his last solo effort, ‘Assignment’, the heartwarming record where BOJ reveals he doesn’t just want to be a passive partner as he is fully vested in whatever he has with his women. Just like an eager fresh student in the first weeks of resumption, he repeatedly demands an assignment, wanting to work through his love interest and all he demands is her permission or consent.

For this new single titled ‘Abacradabra’, BOJ brings an Afrobeats all-star team, bringing Davido and Mr Eazi for this highly infectious track. BOJ himself comes with the hook that eases itself into your soul with his sensual gruff vocals. Davido and Mr Eazi then come up with brilliant verses well-tailored for this dancehall-equse jam.

The accompanying video directed by Ademola Falomo opens BOJ trying to woo his love interest in a desert setting. As the superstars take turns to deliver their sugar tongued verses, the setting continues to change with BOJ, Davido and Mr Eazi all having fun.

Alpha P Is Love-Struck In New Single ‘Quarantine’

When we look back at 2020 in the years to come, we’d all remember how the world stopped and bowed to the pressure of the Coronavirus pandemic. This virus has affected life as we know it today, altering the ways we socially interact, engage in economic activities and the way we go about our daily lives generally. However, everything isn’t so grimy. The government-imposed lockdown offered a period for people to slow down, catch up with themselves, reflect, and particularly for artists it provided ample time to create. This period has also directly influenced creation as exemplified with recent releases from Koffee, Maleek Berry, Teni and now the UMG wonderkid, Alpha P.

Alpha P who many of us got to meet last year with his stunning debut 5-track “King Of The Wolves” EP has now released a very short but sweet track titled ‘Quarantine’. This record is a chilled breezy tune that finds Alpha P crooning about his thrilling romance with his woman. The affections of a love-struck Alpha P knows no bounds as he promises to be there for his lover regardless of the hurdles. “If you get quarantined today, I’ll be there staring at your face,” he promises.

Projects Still Expected To Drop In 2020

Despite the drastic Coronavirus pandemic and the impending lockdown, 2020 has been a good year for Nigerian music. Even though the ways in which we engage and interact with the music was reduced to down to strictly earphones and speakers, Nigerian acts continued to serve us some of the best music we’ve had in a while, exploring several palettes of sounds and themes. We have been blessed with so much music from new and familiar acts, even registering a massive breakout with Omah Lay’s “Bad Influence”. Other high profile releases Burna Boy’s “Twice as Tall”, Patoranking’s “Three”, Adekunle Gold’s “Afropop”, as well as Fireboy and Tiwa Savage’s “Apollo” and “Celia” respectively.

But even though we just have just over three months left in this gruelling year, we still have loads of amazing music to look up to. Some of these are projects we’ve have been anticipating for a long time like Wizkid’s Made In Lagos.  Others are those we never knew were even in the works until their creators sparked up our interest with recent announcements. 

Wizkid – Made In Lagos

This project is one that fans and general music lovers have been looking in the sky and stretching their hands out for. Since its initial announcement on  February 18, 2020, Wizkid has been dangling this carrot in front of us for over two years now. A move which has left many frustrated. Some have even given up on the arrival of the project, adopting the ‘if it comes it comes’ model of anticipation. 

But right now, it appears “Made In Lagos” will be on our music players very soon, with Wizkid revamping interest with juicy teasers. The much-teased project is expected to feature guest contributions from Skepta, Ella Mai, Tems, Damian Marley as well as Burna Boy with whom he has been publicly handing around these days.

Davido – A Better Time

Following the immense commercial success that “A Good Time” recorded, amassing over a billion streams, Davido has promised a worthy sequel rightly titled “A Better Time”. And according to the initial announcement, we are supposed to have had the album as far back as July, but … we understand. 

With the release of his latest single ‘Fem’ which was loaded with a heavy statement for detractors, it appears the journey to Davido’s third studio album has already begun. Word also has it that the project would feature appearances from Tiwa Savage and Nicki Minaj. But knowing Davido and his affinity for collaborations, we perceive that we’d be getting an update on the guest list in the coming days.

Tems – Yet To Be Announced

Tems has been of the best gifts 2019 gave to us. Many were (re)introduced to her amazing talents with her stunning debut ‘Mr Rebel’ which served a breath of fresh air to the pacy percussive sound that dominated the music space at the time. She brilliantly followed this up with ‘Looku Looku’ which was reaffirmed what people had come to know from its predecessor. By the time she released her liberating and empowering anthem, ‘Try Me’ Tems had won the elites and streets over. She even made appearances on the biggest shows in the year-ending series of concerts off the back of this culturally and commercially triumphant record. 

And although this year appears to be relatively silent from the singer save for her surprise single ‘These Days’ and teams up with Khalid, Davido, Odunsi and more, it appears we are still in for a treat. A few days ago, she announced on her live session on Instagram that she has her debut and introductory EP coming before the end of the month.  

Simi – Restless II EP 

Simi appears to be having the best of times. Over the past year, she has gotten married to her sweetheart, released her third studio album “Omo Charlie Champagne”, gotten independent, released one of the biggest 2020 records, and also welcomed her new child. Just a few hours ago also, she announced her new deal with United Kingdom-based A&R company, Platoon alongside her coming project “Restless II”. This announcement has thrown the fans of the singer into an orgy of celebration, highly anticipating the release of this coming project with it first single ‘No Longer Beneficial’ dropping this Friday, Septemeber 18.

Listen To Olú’s New EP “Feels”

In our regular fashion, we at the PGM Club are dedicated to discovering some of the most talented artists that are keen on producing good music and are worthy of our undivided attention. Over the weekend, one of such acts Olú released a new project titled “Feels”. This comes two years after her last released project, the “Language” EP which featured Femi Johnson as the lone feature.

This new EP contains just seven tracks spanning a total run time of about 22 minutes. And all through the journey of this amazing body of work, you are given a new insight into her exceptional artistry as guided by her soothing vocals and brilliant songwriting. You are also wholly immersed in her mind and being, and to make this experience as pristine as it could be, it features no guests.

Enjoy the project here and let us know what you think.

Enjoy The Video For Fasina & Tim Lyre’s ‘Just Linked’ With Mojo And LK

Just a while ago, LK and Mojo reintroduced us to the Chop Life Crew through the drill-heavy tune ‘CLC Step’. This is a record that has inspired a dance-move and is fast gaining traction on the airwaves. And just a couple of weeks after, they link up with Fasina and Tim Lyre on the latter’s’ record ‘Just Linked’. This is the lead single off their joint 3-track project “3 Strains”.

Mojo has been on a killing spree, leaving scene-stealing performances on almost every track he’s been on for a while now. And his verse on ‘Just Linked’ is no exception. The acts go on rapping about their interesting encounters across the city through this chilled psychedelic jam.

The accompanying video finds both Fasina and Tim Lyre in coloured suits in the studio making music in a setting that takes us back in time. Fasina then wakes up in another time zone in a date. Mojo on his part delievers his verse on alternating between a cruise if the streets and a styling session. Tim Lyre is then found in a photoshoot, before taking us back to the studio where they all have a good time making music. The video is directed by Fasina.

 

Bella Alubo Finds Herself In Some Gangster Love In ‘Gbolahan’

Bella Alubo, one of the most gifted acts on the rise has released a new single ‘Gbolahan’, her first official single of the year. This comes about four months after she lent her voice to the “Kele•le” project with ‘Loneliest Girl Of The World’ whose proceeds would be donated for COVID-19 aid in the country through RED HOT. This new single also serves as the lead single for Bela’s next project “Popstar” which is expected to drop before the year runs out in her regular fashion of yearly releases.

‘Gbolahan’ is a chilled afrobeats tune that sounds like a love letter to Bella’s love interest who we know to be Gbolahan. Fusing her sultry vocals with Afrobeats cadences, she details her romance with this guy. But thankfully, the feelings are mutual as he is so in love with her, he wants to show her off “want me to meet your boys, want them to see us together/ you want me in your ride/ want us to leave here together,” she relays.

The record produced and engineered by Tuan Malik is sure to get you hooked upon your first listen as it is a record that finds Bella at her finest pop element.
