The EP is the artist’s first 2018 project and it’s a vibe. Mango Juice & Bad Decisions provides just the right amount of nostalgia with samplings of songs like Sisquo’s Thong Song (00 Nostalgia), Nelly and Kelly’s Dilemma and Cardi B’s Ring (In 2 Ü) and others. The project is another one that explores the woes of a complicated relationship and shows off Ayüü’s versatility as a singer/rapper. The EP enlists production from Higo, Jaylon, Benny Que and DOZ and additional talent from Psycho YP and Andrè Wolff.
Ayüü describes Mango Juice & Bad Decisions as his ‘best work thus far’ and we think you should listen to it.

Just last week, Afro-soul sensation, Muyiwa Akhigbe shared photos of himself cooking something up in a makeshift studio with Bankyondbeatz –one of the prolific producers championing the new wave – and the result of that session is here already. Having worked with the likes of Ninola, Reminisce, BOJ and a cross-section of new-gen acts, Bankyondbeatz taps Muyiwa for his latest release titled ‘Bamilo‘, which directly translates to ‘come with me’.
On this soothing love number, a besotted Muyiwa appeals to his love interest to yield to his advances and go with him. As smooth as ever, the sweet-voiced singer details exactly how she makes him feel and admits his desperation to be with her.
As expected, Bankyondbeatz came through on the production end of the record, lacing the instrumental with strutting guitar riffs and soft but scintillating talking drum rhythms in the background.

Jinmi Abuduls is slowly positioning himself as one of the key voices of his generation. With every release, the young singer-songwriter seems to win over unbelievers to his camp and his latest single is not an exception. Over the weekend, Jinmi released a new single ‘Aya’ produced by TMXO and engineered by Alpha Ojini.
Over soft percussions and a stifling bassline, Jinmi opens the record with a Jon Bellion-esque adulation of his woman. The track then transitions to a very soothing and melodious love number, coated in an incrementally-rich ambience. Benrix’s soul-stirring strings slowly crawl right under your skin as Jinmi’s lyrics place the picture of your love interest in your mind-eye as you sing along.

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: 339
