Nigerian-Bohemian act, Stiques who also goes by the name ‘Stiques the god’ is a multi-talented creative. Born in Kaduna, the singer, songwriter, producer, audio engineer, and sound design artist has always sought to project his culture through his music. And his latest effort, ‘Sani Abacha’ is no different.
Sonically, the record fuses African and Western elements, melding trap music with EDM, laced with African percussions. Rapping majorly in Hausa and occasionally code mixing with English, Stiques gives an ode to one of Nigeria’s most memorable and notorious Head of State General Sani Abacha after whom the track is titled. Towards the end of the record, the voice of the late General can be heard in a soundbite of his maiden nationwide broadcast of November 17th, 1993.

Veteran rapper Modenine is back and this time he has enlisted soul singer ‘Maka‘ who recently released her debut EP –The Truth– for his newly released single “No Matter What“.
Laced with nothing short of good production, good & somewhat honest flows coupled with a flawless chorus; No Matter What is far from an average hip-hop joint.
Modenine Featuring Maka is Produced by Black Intelligence and is the second single off the INSULIN album soulful and insightful.
here are the lyrics ……………….
Verse 1 (Modenine)
Legendary mode , that’s what I’m blessed to be
But they trying ta force me out like a refugee ( I’m falling )
Aint nobody rescue me
And I DonT give a rats booty bout a brand begging me to judge or rap for free I’m all about my P ( gimmie the money )
I know you really want the death of me
I’m Tupac middle finger out the SUV
Sooner or later you’ll be kissing on my effigy
I’m magical with words the more you look the less you see
You no be G.O.D so who the F you be
The industry got me pressed to Pee
Its getting difficult to hold it when they bugging giving less to me
It makes no sense to me
The shows are next to free
And now you devil worshipers are trying to pester me
I believe in God you can control my destiny
So quit trying to stifle my release like a vasectomy
Chorus ( Maka )
It feels like I’m 6 feet under water
And that’s just when I gotta let go
Cos I know that no matter what
No matter what 2X
I’ll still stay afloat
Verse 2,( Modenine )
It was all good just a week ago
Now its all sour time for me to ether foes
Stomping ground flow
I’m about to lift a soul
Battle to the last breath ,never beef us bro
Or pay the reapers tow for hating on the Vam – pire
Forever young , the black peter pan
Wish me well otherwise you better delete your plans
Man ah man ah not real
Man ah man ah hologram
Who you dey follow yarn trip and get ganged up
Sulking cos I didn’t follow back … Man up
You’re the type to clam up when you get ran up
Pushing for a fair fight
Gimmie them Air Nikes
IG F-boys will kill for a mere like
I’m dancing rings around them , they thinking my boots are Ali’s
I rap hard tripping new groups of barbies
My CD they do buy ( dey Dubai ) from here to Abu Dhabi
And i will stay a float
No I won’t drown
