Bris B’s first release of the year is a sensual one called Supa Sigh.
The mid-tempo Higo-produced track is filled with sex jokes for days. The complete rawness of the song may be a little overwhelming for some, but the combination of that unfiltered-ness and Higo’s production creates a fun song.
Listen to Supa Sigh here.

For the past few days, Mavin Records rapper, Ladipoe has been teasing a weekly bar fest series tagged the #RevivalSunday and now, he has officially kicked it off with the first week’s entry, ‘Providence‘. Rapping over a Johnson IP and London-produced beat, the wordsmith’s mastery as a lyricist is on full display as he delievers neck-snapping bars and a pack of quotables enwrapped in a stirring flow.
Ladipoe goes about all this with a seamless ease that it looks like he’s just having fun with the beat yet doing something that exhumes dexterity and technical skill that can only be acquired after age-long practice and constantly beating at one’s craft. Earlier this year, Ladipoe crowned himself the Leader of the Revival in his #LOTR freestyle and now, he is making good on that claim.
Towards the end, he interpolates Prettyboy D-O‘s energetic street anthem, ‘Dey Go Hear Wehh‘ which is loosely directed at naysayers and nonbelievers.

Oma Mahmud wants us to have tough conversations. Conversations we often shy away from especially through our escapist music about the allures and pull of luxury and excesses in a country that has become the poverty capital of the world. Over his next string of releases, the eccentric act, Oma Mahmud, seeks to undertake an enquiry into the state of the nation. And he kicks things right off with a Lady Donli assist on ‘Jalo‘, the first single from his next album aptly titled, “State of the Nation.”
‘Jalo‘ is also his first official release since his last album “Rockstvr,” an 11-track project released earlier this year, that guests new wave acts like DJ Yin, Prettyboy D-O, Damayo, Yung L and more.
On the self-produced record, Oma Mahmud and Lady Donli are united in crooning over the appalling socio-political state of the nation as well as the migration-centred orientation of its youths. Many have sadly given up on the deteriorating country and see migration to the West as the only viable shot at a better life. In plain street lingo, everyone simply wants to ‘japa‘.
However, the pair are sceptical of this exodus-is-a-must mindset – “Who go remain for we country o, if to say me and you we dey plan to go?” Mahmud rhetorically asks as he opens the record.
Sonically, ‘Jalo‘ is an afrobeat record highly rich in instrumentation, particularly with its heavy bassline and guitar loops. With a call-and-response chorus common in the message-laden genre, both acts come through with their reflective and pensive verses without being overbearing. The song is co-written by Ayomide Olufawo who also contributed background vocals to the beautiful record.
Enjoy the record and let us know if you agree with Oma Mahmud and Lady Donli.Post Views: 359

Popular UK rapper Octavian has fielded two Nigerian rising stars on his latest effort titled ‘Poison’. For years now, Santi has been the frontman of the culture-shifting alte movement, championing a horde of young and vibrant acts coming out of Nigeria. Obongjayar is also a UK-based Nigerian rapper whose latest EP “Which Way Is Forward?” secured an impressive 7.8 rating on Pitchfork. The revered music review platform further claims the project sonically “sits somewhere between the mystic expansionism of Kamasi Washington and the colloquial, upbeat grooves of the Dur-Dur Band.”
Produced by the Take A Daytrip duo of Mo Bamba and Panini, ‘Poison’ has an overwhelming afro-beats vibe that jumps right at you from the first few seconds. This is confirmed in a press release, revealing that the song was inspired by Octavian recent visit to Nigeria. The song itself is an open submission to love. “You’re my poison…Baby, love me till I overdose” the chorus sings.
