Ever since ‘Awolowo‘ dropped a few weeks ago, it has been one of the hottest releases in 2019, steady dominating the airwaves and generating frenzy both on and offline. For the record, the acclaimed hook-killer, BOJ recruited a Ghanian all-star rap team of Kewsi Arthur, Darkovibes & Joey B who delivered such impressive performances that still has fans debating who had the best verse yet.
Well, BOJ has finally yielded to the call for a Naija version of the Alte-meets-hip-hop record. Fielding some of the biggest names in the Niaja rap scene, BOJ enlists a team of Falz, Ycee and Fresh L for the ‘Awolowo‘ Naija Remix. And as you know, Naija no dey carry last. The rappers came through with remarkable verses and polished flows that breathes a new life to the dazzling production from GMK. This ‘Awolowo‘ remix also features additional vocals from Zamir and Joey B.

This may come as a late post, but that is also because we couldn’t fully understand the meaning & purpose of the project Virtuoso.
So we asked a few internal questions; Does the project sound good? Hell yeah!
Does it sound fresh? Hell yeah!
So, we reached out to Genio and asked him a few questions;
What is the purpose of this album?
Why did you put it out now?
“I decided to put it out now because I felt it was the right time to come out as Genio Bambino because a lot of people don’t know I have changed my name and have not noticed the growth and changes I have been through.”
What inspired the collaborations?
Who is Genio Bambino?
“Genio Bambino is the youngest monster boy. He raps, sings, writes and produces. I was kinda feeling myself when I gave myself the name because it means “Boy Genius” in Italian and that’s how I feel.”
After all these questions were answered, we asked ourselves (internally) the last question;
Will we recommend it to others?
We certainly will! And we also hope you get to listen to it and perhaps share it with your friends.

Pulling off a debut project that will make history books is hard. Making music that is inter-generational is even harder, but Odunsi has done it. The singer’s debut album premiered on the PGM Live radio show last Wednesday, an amazing private listening party on Thursday and the official public release on all platforms finally came through on Friday.
rare. is Odunsi’s first debut and it’s taken this vanguard two years to come through with this project. While some fans were mad that it’s taken their fave so long to put out a compilation, one listen to this superstar quality debut and you’ll understand why. The project samples the Funk/Disco sounds of the 70s/80s and some spins on 90s Hip-Hop and this has to be the best spin on the sounds produced this year and with such a superb blend of sound, you can’t really hate Odunsi’s music. With rare. we see Odunsi take sole charge of his brand aesthetic, adding to the redefinition of what it is to be an African artist in this age.
The album boasts features from mainstream and New School heavyweights: Runtown, Davido, Nasty C, Zamir, Tay Iwar, Lady Donli, Santi, Duendita, Amaarae, Hamzaa, Solis and 234Jaydaa. All the tracks on rare. are produced by Odunsi (save for Alté Cruise which was produced by Yinoluu, Take Me There produced by Le Mav and Outcast produced by Genio Bambino) with help from GMK, DJ Yin, Nosapollo, and Davido.Post Views: 312
By Victor Aderibigbe — 6 months agoMuyiwa Akhigbe, a gifted soul singer who now doubles as a rapper has teamed up with rising lyricist, Rhye Ali and producer, Trill Xoe to create and release a new joint EP titled “Conversations“. This project which is actually Muyiwa’s sophomore EP is a highly experimental one for the act as he leaves his comfort zone to create a thematic hip-hop project with a skilled rapper.
True to its name, the 9-track EP opens with a recorded phone conversation in which Muyiwa reaches out to his partner-in-crime Rhye and convinces him to work with him on this project. This, however, is just the first of five conversations in the project, each one recorded over the instrumental of the following record. Through these conversations and records, these artists present a soulful realness and detailing to their realities as youths and young creatives in this country.
This is, therefore, a highly relatable project as the pair rap and discusses topics and themes that every twenty-something in this city should familiar with. As mentioned earlier, this EP is solely produced by Trill Xoe and engineered by David Rotimi. Enjoy.Post Views: 333
