This year has not been the best to be honest. We are just three months in and it almost feels like it has lasted a lifetime. But even as we are currently dealing with the perils of one of the worst pandemics in recent history, D-Truce is leading us to be grateful for life.
In his just-released Malobi and Kulupsy-assisted single ‘Grateful’, D-Truce is in a full introspective and reflective mood. Over the hip-hop and reggae fused production, he takes us down memory lane, serving pointers on things he’s most thankful for.
This is D-Truce’s first offering since his team-up with Bella Alubo in their 2019 love duet, ‘For You’. A short and sweet affair, ‘Grateful’ which covers a Khalid song is one tune to fall back upon through this crisis.

After a very eventful 2016 which has seen her go on tour and showcase herself around the world, the soulful singer for the first time wanted to create a song that forced her to reach deep in her self & her emotions. Airbrush enjoyed a strong reception when it first hit the airwaves due to a leak in 2015, many important people came out to show their appreciation for this soulful ballard that has become one of Seyi Shay’s famous works in her glittering career.
The video which takes a very emotional setting depicts how nothing is really perfect, it might be all smiles on the outside but there is always a reality on the inside which isn’t always pretty. Seyi Shay was recently quoted when she said; “I have realised that nothing is perfect be it relationships, friendships or careers.” this explains where she was coming from with this song.
Airbrush was produced by Drew Scott (aka Druski of the Chartbreaker Music Group) and the video can currently be viewed on YouTube (link below). Seyi Shay continues her rise to the top of the pecking order as she continues to wave Africa’s flag highest wherever she goes.

The queen is back! After months of anticipation, excitement regarding her Universal Music deal, and a string of dazzling guest spots on bangers all year long, Tiwa Savage has finally treated us to her first official single of the year. And it’s well worth the wait.
After teasing the single for almost a week now, Tiwa has unveiled her Pheelz-produced UMG debut titled ‘49-99‘, a mid-tempo afro-pop record with Afrobeat elements, particularly rich in instrumentation with scintillating underlining strings.
On the record, Tiwa Savage expresses her desires for the good things of life amidst the rife and turmoil in a country some are quick to refer to as a failed state. She is focused on securing the bag to afford herself the luxury designers and fast cars, “Mo fe ra Versace, Mo fe ra Bugatti” she reveals.
At a listening party was also held in London, on Wednesday, September 4, she explained the symbolism behind the cryptic title of the much-teased single. “It’s a phrase that was coined by the godfather of afrobeats, Fela Kuti. It means, ‘49 sitting, 99 standing.’ Errm, suffering and smiling. For those who are not Nigerian, we have these transit buses which we call a ‘molue’ and it has 49 seats.
“So instead of it to have 49 people to commute to work and back, you have 49 people sitting and double that standing, hanging… That’s just a reflection of the economy and the imbalance with the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. So the song, even when you first listen to it – it’s a great record – it’s one you can Zanku to and dance to.”
“….I wanted my first global single to have a message that we are suffering and smiling and music is a powerful tool. And I wanted a title which could be a conversation starter like 49 people sitting and 99 people standing… like we’re suffering and smiling.” She continued.
The brilliantly-directed video opens with Tiwa Savage as the queen of the underworld, as it quickly switches to Tiwa hustling as a fashion designer. At the end of the video, she can be seen enjoying herself at the table of pervacious ‘big men’ whom she had hypnotised with her moves.
