Despite spending most of her adult years in the United States, singer and songwriter Olayinka Ehi was born and raised in Nigeria. A burgeoning R&B-alternative act, Olayinka’s sound is very much influenced by her African culture; evident in the way she weaves pidgin and English in her lyrics as well as the African percussive elements often embedded in her sound.
An example of this is her 2018 release, ‘Jeje‘. On this penultimate track off her debut EP, “Story“, Olayinka hops on an airtight Afropop sound which sports a strutting a guitar lick. Across the record, she enjoins her listeners to feel the groove and move their bodies softly to the rhythm. Over the 4-track EP, she flutters across genres, even exploring EDM on the project’s closer, ‘B.G.S.N‘.
Olayinka Ehi initially ensnared us in 2016 when she was thrust in the public eye with her emotive cover of the late Nina Simone‘s definitive record, ‘Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood‘. Coming 53 years after its initial release, Olayinka uses her rendition to highlight society’s repulsion to a spirited and opinionated black woman. And ever since, she has been fairly consistent with her releases coming through with ‘Like I Do‘, ‘Feel‘ and ‘If You‘ in 2017. The next year saw the release of her well-received debut EP “Story“. And picking off where she left off in 2018, she has dished out two offerings this year with ‘No Love This Summer‘ being her latest. Released in July, ‘No Love This Summer‘ finds the singer ready to fully enjoy her summer with no commitments and no relationship-induced drama. It closes with an amusing soundbite of friends making plans to enjoy a wild and free girls-only summer.
For Olayinka Ehi, however, music isn’t all just about entertainment. She uses her gift and its perks as a tool to drive real-life changes in our society. Generally, her’s songs are centred around love and life. But with highly sinkable melodies, her songs are also usually laced with underling messages that articulate some of the women-specific struggles. In a recent interview with Voyage LA, she revealed how she used her EP rollout to help raise funds to build an all-girls school in Tanzanian.
“I am very big on female empowerment and I believe that education plays a huge role in that. When I released my first EP, I dedicated the event to raise funds for an all-girls school being build in Tanzania. We were able to raise more than 2000$ online and at the event. The school is planned to open in 2020. I plan to start up my own non-profit to continue events like this where I link my music to global awareness.” Olayinka discloses in the interview.
We at the PGM Club are very excited about Olayinka Ehi and her music. Check out her EP above and let us know what you think.Post Views: 849

Remember in 2017 when BarelyAnyHook dropped a sizzling freestyle for Nigerian-American rapper Jidenna when the latter was promoting “The Chief” in Lagos? The burgeoning rapper has since swiftly positioned himself as one of the most creative and eccentric wordsmiths in the country. Although he hasn’t attained mainstream popularity just yet, BarelyAnyHook is fast developing a cult following via his near-ceaseless releases.
Anyone that has been following the rapper’s journey for a minute must have noticed his affinity for Jidenna’s music. Asides the viral freestyle video, he has also gone one to cover standout selections off Jidenna’s sturdy discography. Now, BarleyAnyHook has compiled these covers into an EP he calls “NNA, JIDE.” This project, dedicated to the Grammy-nominated rapper contains just five tracks with a total runtime of 16 minutes.
This is BarleyAnyHook’s first body of work since his 2019 collaborative “Barely Big Enough” EP with respected producer and DJ, Bigfootinyourface.

Just a few hours after announcing that his album is ready, rising talent David Meli is giving us a taste to the coming project. The singer has released two new singles titled ‘Headswell’ and ‘Big Body’ which features no guests.
‘Headswell’ is a mid-tempo Afropop record that’s so easy to sink and rock that waist to. The singer is drunk in love and he sings this adulation to this lover that sets his soul on fire.
On ‘Big Body’, a more uptempo jam, Meli is a devout body worshipper, urging his muse to take it softly on him as she drives him crazy with her body. No doubt, this is an anthem straight for the clubs and the house parties you might be attending this weekend.
If these records tell us one thing, it’s that David Meli isn’t here to play. He serenades over the beats with the swagger of a blown Afropop star. And going by the consistent quality of his releases, it’s just a matter of time before he attains that status.
These singles come highly recommended from us at the PGM Club.Post Views: 375
