Soundgod Runtown,dropped new release ‘If E happen for Lagos’ a few hours ago. It is an ode to Nigeria’s metropolitan city, Eko. ‘If E happen for Lagos’ elucidates the regular happenings in Lagos city. The connections and networking needed to thrive, the sharpness and alertness without which one cannot survive, the party scene, the inefficiency of its government.

The recently engaged artist was one of the artists center stage of the recent #EndSARS protests. He released ‘Kini Issue’ from his forthcoming album, ‘Body Riddim’ ft Darkovibes, ‘Angel of my life’ (remake) with Paul Play and worked in collaboration with Landonsyl for ‘Iyawo Mi’ earlier this year. Known for churning out mad tunes ,the artist does not disappoint on ‘If e no happen for Lagos’.

‘If E happen  for Lagos ‘ is rife with instrumentals lending it a rich, deep flavour. The song seeps in slowly and before you can say Jack, you’ve replayed it over ten times. This drums are on brand for an Afrofusion tune and even the trumpet avails us a smooth, intimate journey through the busy streets of Lagos. Produced by Mystro. Trumpet played by Yega.

Remy Baggins takes up role of wicked playboy in his new single ‘Sample’

For the lovers of Good Music, New music Sample is out from Remy Baggins. Sample is for the pretty, hot chicks that the man dem are moving to but only for a quick, passionate fling rather than long term commitment. The flirty playboy has no shame in announcing his desire to engage in a one night rendevous. He is interested in nothing more than delivering his banana,as stated in the song, rather than being held down. Indeed, the singer is not here for a long time but a good time.

The beat of the song is fire and the song shows the versality of the singer switching between various genres of music, deviating from his usual rap style. The song was produced, mixed and mastered by Remy Baggins himself. The vernacular lyrics adds gusto to the artist’s basal desire to sample his beautiful muse. The genre of the song is Afropop-Ampiano.

Previous works of the singer includes; ; VIV (2016), eigengrau (2017), YLLW (with Eri Ife, 2018), HENTAI (2019), SAKURA(2020). We at The PGM Club highly recommend this song. Click here to listen

Omah lay and Tems,arrested and charged to court in Uganda for flouting Covid-19 guidelines

Nigerian singers, Stanley Omah Didia known better as Omah lay and Temilade Opeyin alias Tems with her manager, Muyiwa Awomiyi have been arrested and charged to court by the Katwe Police on charges of Negligently doing acts likely to spread an infectious disease C/S 171 of the penal code in Uganda.

In a viral tweet yesterday from the Police’s official Twitter handle, they announced the arrest and it’s reason being a concert which flouted the country’s Covid-19 guidelines;

@Patrickonyango1 “Three people have been arrested in connection to the unauthorised concert that was held last night in Ddungu Resort in Munyonyo, Kampala City”.
https://t.co/YQwXDElQbC

Those arrested are Ivan Ddungu, the manager of the place where the concert was held, Omah Lay the musician and Prim Kasana, Events Manager, who contracted Omah Lay to sing.

An hour ago, the police went on to elucidate that earlier plans to have the artists released on bond have been withdrawn by the DPP( Director of Public Prosecution) and they, plus four ugandans will be remanded until Wednesday 16/12/2020.

Ivan Ddungu, manager of the event center, had posted yesterday on Facebook that they had clearance from the police and even security for  the concert provided by members of the Ugandan police force. While the artists and event planners erred as Corona is a public health matter and governments need to do all in their power to protect their citizens, the grouse for many Nigerians seem to be that Ugandan artists at the concert weren’t arrested only foreign ones. If at all artists and not show organizers are to be arrested, isn’t it fair for all artists to be rounded up. Is this justice or extreme high handedness to exude power?
