Last year, Tems popped on the radar; a very hard-to-ignore presence with her single Mr Rebel. Her distinct vocals put her on our watchlist. The singer finished last year with a flourish featuring on The Collectiv3’s second compilation Live. Create. Repeat. and amazing live performances including the Aux Live Concert.
Tems’ new single Looku Looku produced by Oddio is another very emotive track. Looku Looku is a dedication to the discontent man: ‘what are you always looking for outside when I’m right here?’ after which she voices her need for his attention and validation.
We’re definitely looking forward to more from this amazingly talented woman.

On a hot November evening in 2012, I was listening to MI’s debut album, the classic Talk About It, and after playing the Short Black Boy skit by L.Boogie, I decided to google him out of curiosity. In the search results, I stumbled on Artificial Intelligence a mixtape by a young lyricist known as Boogey. Suffice to say that it was one of the best accidental finds of music in my life.
Artificial Intelligence was the perfect introduction to Boogey’s witty & satirical lyricism and his ability to create intricate storylines in his verses. His playful lyrics when analyzed deeply hold multiple meanings based on the audience’s perception.
Fast forward 4 years and Boogey has blessed the Nigerian Hip Hop scene with 2 more solo mixtapes, a collaborative album and two weeks ago he dropped his much-anticipated 4th solo mixtape, Incognito.
Compared to Boogey’s previous projects, Incognito takes a darker tone. Boogey’s playful side is almost nonexistent. This mixtape comes from a place of pain, driven by the frustrations of a battle weary General of Nigerian Hip Hop.
The tape’s opening four tracks are all about spelling out Boogey’s displeasure with the Nigerian music scene and women that have broken his heart and used him. “Devil beans” perfectly encapsulates this. On it Boogey perfectly lays out his frustrations, the pain in his voice accompanying the intelligent storytelling.
“The Boy” and “The King” livens up the mood a bit but Boogey still retains that dark edge.
On “People Always Leave”, a cover of LA carvinal’s Seven steps to Nowhere, and “Celebrate”, featuring Lady Donli, he takes on abandonment, by both the music industry and in failed relationships. He demands the attention that his craft deserves and the love and honesty that he seeks in relationships.
“Last words” sees Boogey team up with Cat Mayel on an Odunsi produced beat to create what I consider the standout track. His angst peaks with suicidal thoughts, a vivid description of ending it all.
Incognito closes out with “Resurrection” and “Bring it Back”. Notable mentions must go to AT, Phlow and Zee for amazing verses.
Incognito shows how much progress Boogey has made in the last 4 years. His story lines are more mature and his mindset in darker and more reflective. Wearing his struggles on his sleeves and weaving them into stories in his verses.
The tape also brings to the forefront how underappreciated Rap music still is in the Nigerian music circles.
We at thepgmclub.com definitely recommend that you give this body of work a listen.Post Views: 297

After that amazing feature singing on Lady Donli’s single Games earlier in the year, singer/rapper GJ The Caesar is out with what he calls his debut release.
The artist released the song BDE (Big Dick Energy) featuring André Wolff and U. and we think it’s a great one, but GJ obviously regards Monopoly as the chosen one. The rapper is obviously using this track as an awesome introduction to his music with this one and we’re definitely on the lookout for more.Post Views: 535
