After aiming for a global market with his chart-topping single ‘Nalingi’ Congolese rapper Manu WorldStar is back yet with another attempt. The rapper has released a new single ‘Choko’ off his soon-to-be-released album “Molimo”.
Last year, he released an EP, “Young African Story” which was a blend of hip-hop and afrobeats. It was also led by his breakout single ‘Nalingi’ which went gold. Now, he celebrates another milestone with the build-up to the release of his debut album, “Molim”, which is already available for pre-order.
“I felt this body of work defines and reflects the deepest desires and thoughts that come not from my mind, but from my spirit,” he says about the album.
‘Choko’ is an ode to pursuing your dreams relentlessly he says, “I want Choko to feed everyone’s souls just like how it fed mine” he adds.

One interesting thing about the Nigerian music space is that it’s an industry tightly packed with young talented acts with so much to prove. And one artist whose name has been on everyone’s lips this past week is the Port Harcourt singer, Omah Lay. Ever since he released his debut and introductory EP, “Get Layd”, the youngster seems to have gotten cosigns from most of the big players in the industry. Commercially, the EP is also doing very well. A quick scan of the Apple Music Nigeria chart finds Omah Lay securing four spots out of the top ten. He also comfortably sits m on the number one and two spots with ‘Bad Influence’ and ‘You’.
We got our first taste of his fluid melodies when he got introduced to us with ‘You’ on February 14. His overbearing confidence on the single made him sound like one whose raw talents have been silently forged into shining diamonds. Omah Lay came ready.
One of the gains of this brilliantly executed EP is that in less than a week of its release, Omah Lay has got the ears of the people. He has swiftly positioned himself to be one of the country’s most promising singers on the rise. Alongside the charts, he has also vaulted himself to mainstream consciousness. And with a run of subsequent quality releases, Omah Lay is not far from being a household name.
Rookie of the year? Next Rated? Who knows?
But one thing is certain: he’d be one of the success stories Afrobeats has to tell at the end of the year. With “Get Layd”, Omah Lay has pulled off what many only wish for; having the people’s undivided attention right from your debut. Enjoy the EP above.Post Views: 377

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.

Edwin Madu – Dwin, The Stoic is a poet, singer, songwriter and 1/3 of the ‘Experimental Rock’ band Ignis Brothers (along with Ruth Zakari and Lamide Aranmolate).
In July, Dwin released his debut album Heavy Heart. The project is a multi-genre LP and honestly, this is the playlist for the times you can’t get a text back. The genres go from Folk to Soft Rock and we listen to Dwin artfully use this debut to draw attention to his voice – so raw and filled with emotion. Heavy Heart was exclusively produced by 3rty and features Paybac, Gido, Vader theBarelyAnyHook, Davina Oriakhi, Jamal Swiss and Nnayimovich (The Stoic’s alter ego). The album has the rollout singles Happy Song and Are You The One? and Ignis Brothers’ debut single Braveheart. For all the fun it may bring to being in the feels of not getting a text back, Heavy Heart is introspective and makes one think, exploring concepts from spirituality to love and heartbreak. The album’s lead single Happy Song is ironically unhappy telling the story of a lover’s loss brought to life in TheGrandVezir’s stop-motion animation video.
Heavy Heart is an amazing debut and this writer is looking forward to crying more tears.Post Views: 791
