Three months after their initial team-up on their soothing love record,’Bamilo‘, Muyiwa Akhigbe and BankyOnDBeatz have joined forces on a new number titled ‘Outta My System’. Earlier this year, he also dropped a stellar joint EP with Rhye Ali titled “Conversations.”
With this new record, Muyiwa Akhigbe attempts to introduce his branded afro-futurist sound. Produced by BankOnDBeatz, ‘Outta My System‘ is reminiscent of Daft Punk’s futurist sonic aesthetic prevalent on ‘Motherboard‘.
This is a sad tale of a love turned sour. The romance has run its course and an exhausted Muyiwa is done having it. He calls it quits as all he wants now is to move and get over his jilted lover.
Listen to the record above and let us know what you think.

Enter Forever Tired – stylized as FOREVATIRED – a collective of young Nigerian artists formed in September 2017 led by Kyyd. The 15-man group includes rappers and vocalists, producers, photographers, videographers, graphic artists and muralists. The group collectively says ‘the idea of Forevatired has always been appealing—a large group of very talented friends working together to form a rap/alternative/soft rock band, all aged from their late teens to their early twenties, they have combined their separate skills to create and produce art that would stand out in its own unique way’.
They recently released their debut EP At The End Of Summer. Their latest single No Land In Any Direction written and performed by the group’s female lead vocalist Seo explores the theme of social anxiety. She says the inspiration for the song is drawn from ‘the insecurities, bitterness and frustrations that come with the human experience and social interaction and the feeling of being trapped having to satisfy the desires of the flesh, as well as the feeling of hopelessness, hence the name “No Land…’. Seo’s vocals are very soft and smooth on this one and it leaves an almost hypnotic effect on its listener, drawing one into the music.Post Views: 598

Just over a year after their team-up on ‘Sweet’ in 2018, burgeoning act WundaB has reunited MOJO and AYLØ on his new comeback single. This new record ‘Claro’ would be WundaB’s first official single since he guested K.I.N.G and Doro on his 2017 single ‘Ting’.
Released over the weekend, ‘Claro’ is one of the most chilled and relaxing songs you can listen to today. Over a very laidback synth-laced dancehall production by WundaB, AYLØ offers a tingling hook. Crooning in diluted patios, he uses the claro as a metaphor of how he wants his woman. MOJO, on the other hand, delievers his verse in the way he knows best: code-mixing Yoruba, English and pidgin. Across his sweet 16, he drops goofy pick-up lines, trying to win over his love interest with his braggadocio.

After a pretty much silent 2019 save for his ‘Fly’ duet with Davina Oriakhi, Jamal Swiss is opening the not-so-new year with ‘Lifestyle’, a record fun-loving twenty-somethings would sink easily to. Produced by Jay Blakez, the record finds Jamal Swiss playing alongside one of Nigeria’s most vibrant acts on the rise, Remy Baggins.
Jamal teased the record a couple of days ago on Twitter by dropping a steaming snippet that left us stretching our hands for the real thing. And now that it’s here, we just can’t get enough.
On this record one thing is sure, Jamal and Remy sure know how to have a good time. But they’re probably quite bored with it as they are looking to take on new chop-life partners.
‘Lifestyle’ could easily have passed for a cute love song but love isn’t what they promise. They just want to give you a peek into their amazing hedonistic lifestyles and probably hope you stick around after that. And if not, they move to their next catch.
Jamal’s muse is an Abuja-based Lagos newbie who also likes to party. But one thing is missing; adequate knowledge of the hotspots around the city where the real party’s at. But Jamal is a willing and capable tour guide hoping to give her that welcome package we all secretly wish for.
In his part, Remy plays the Lagos big boy with deep pockets. He has the means and is, of course, ready to splurge on this new love interest. But her the flashiest things, treat her to the fanciest places and give her the time of her life.Post Views: 436
