Rising soulful singer Ilaye has released a new single titled ‘Metaphors‘, a solid follow-up to her well-received December release, ‘Binoculars‘. This record was premiered on The PGM Show with Douglas Jekan, Shedy Kay, Mercy Ajisafe and Fresh L.
According to Ilaye, ‘Metaphors‘ is about a girl who is finding it quite difficult to express her affection to someone she admires. She then attempts to get her thoughts and feelings across to him using metaphors.
Produced by Tejiri, this single is bound to you to win you over to Ilaye’s camp. Her soothing angelic voice makes the record so easy to sink into, as she describes love with such imagery that isn’t so common in these spaces
‘Metaphors‘ definitely comes highly recommended from us at The Push Good Music Club. Listen, enjoy and share.

About three years ago, Felix George had a brush with death. On June 10, 2017, the emerging singer, better known as Zamby, was involved in a ghastly motor accident that’s forever etched in his memory. Turning his lemons into a syrupy lemon juice, the experience has since pumped him with a new drive and a fresh outlook to life. But after several let downs and false starts in trying to break out in the industry, Zamby felt so small. Inconsequential. Intimidated. This led to a recent deep and stimulating conversation with his mum which has since reignited that drive in him. It is all this and more that he brings to bear on his cover of Roddy Rich’s highly successful single, ‘Die Young’.
Zamby’s ‘Die Young’ plays both as a victory lap as well as a manifesto of his impending success. Over the all too familiar instrumental, Zamby delievers his smooth assertive verses, declaring “I can never die young ’cause I got GOD”. He reassures himself that he’s destined for greatness and even though things might not be going as planned now, he has no choice that to press on till he gets what he craves.

Ever since the release of his debut mixtape VIV, talented producer, singer and songwriter Remy Baggins has featured heavily on our radar.
In this time, he has built up an impressive collection of diverse features and production credits that have imprinted his distinct sound on us. Simply put as both a producer and artist, he excels in experimenting with multiple genres and blending melodies to create an impressive signature sound.
So, when we heard that he was releasing a new EP, titled Eigengrau, we were so excited we asked for an advance copy and now we are pleased to present to you our review.
Eigengrau is a deeply personal project, one that Remy says he recorded at a time when he was depressed and confused about his next career and life choices with the latter serving as the theme to the project’s opening track “Tell Me”. Sounding like the soundtrack of a deep movie monologue, Remy expresses his frustrations about his growth in the music industry and also as a person. The track is the darkest reflection of the project’s theme and it serves as a not so subtle precursor for what comes next in “Why?”
“Why?” is one of the EP’s standout track. It sees Remy experimenting with a smooth blend of Afro-Pop and South African House with an intriguing storyline about a stalking ex. This is what good music sounds like with relatable lyrics and a wonderful melodious vibe on the instrumentals.
Next up is “Paranoid” which is kinda like a complement or inverse of “Why?” with Remy the one stalking a lover or ex. The track is slower and more laid back but the delivery is subtle and superb. In keeping with the project’s theme the song is somewhat reflective and sounds inspired by true events. Another stand out track.
On “Maybe…” co-written by the super talented Efe Oraka, Remy is back full and centered on his struggles but with a more upbeat, up tempo vibe. It’s at this moment that Remy begins to look past his pain and the track is yet another vibe on a project packed full of gems.
But perhaps more than any other, “STAYWOKE” is a reflection of Remy’s experimental style with him rapping over a heavy trap infused beat. Fully emerged from the darkness in “Tell Me”, Remy’s fighting back with fury but at the same he has created an anthem for the up and coming underdog.
In our opinion, this is the project’s stand out track.
Closing out with a very “trippy ass outro”, what is clear at the end of this project is that Remy definitely isn’t afraid to experiment with his production and song writing. He’s also progressed from VIV and his sound and songs are a lot more concise. The progress he’s making as a creator is evident and Eigengrau is already one of our favorite projects in what has been a stellar year for alternative Nigerian music.
We at the PGM club, highly recommend that you take the time out to listen to this project and we eagerly await Remy’s future projects.

You’ve listened to Efe Oraka’s The Nigerian Dream and you’ve had time to think. It’s now time for you to act. Hip-Hop artist is not taking any excuses with the release of his latest single Our Tomorrow.
Hip-Hop artist Profound has been around for a hot minute with quite the string of successful singles and an equally successful EP Daddy Knows Best (2015). Early this year he released Peng Tingz and Coba Me (featuring Jefferey Benson) and last month he dropped his tribute to the girl of his dreams No Time. Our Tomorrow brings out Profound’s more conscious side with the artist crying foul on the lazy-Nigerian-youth notion and raising the clarion call for youth to get their PVCs and exercise their voting rights as the first step to reshaping our tomorrow.
The PGM Club is happy to see artists like Profound release more conscious content, doing their part in pushing the conversation and paradigm of change.Post Views: 332
