Palmwine season is once again upon us! Iconic Nigerian hip-hop duo, Show Dem Camp have announced the release of the next entry in the Palmwine Music series, titled “The Palmwine Express.” Scheduled for release next week Friday, December 13, this comes about 12 months after their year opening tape “These Buhari Times,” one many swear is the best Nigerian rap project of 2019.
Show Dem Camp kicked off the Palmwine Music series in 2017 with a 6-track EP that featured appearances from Odunsi (The Engine), BOJ, Funbi, Ladipoe and Ajebutter 22. Following the success of that tape, they kicked off their annual Palmwine Music Festival that same year. In 2018, the duo released the second instalment of the series, a 10-track project this time, with an expansive guest list that includes Nonso Amadi, Moelogo, Tomi Agape, Worlasi, Flash, Burna Boy, and Falana. Frequent collaborators, BOJ, Ajebutter 22 and Ladipoe also reappeared on “Palmwine Music 2.” And now, to the delight of many, the third instalment of one of the most successful Nigerian rap series is almost here.
Yesterday, Ghost and Tec took to their social media pages to announce the project as well as unveil its cover art and release date.”Our new project…The Palmwine Express arrives December 13th. Who’s onboard ” they posted alongside the cover art on Instagram.

Watch this space for any more information on the coming project.
Ajebutter 22, Falz and BOJ have released the first visuals off their joint 5-track EP, “Make E No Cause Fight 2.” The unveiled video is for ‘Ronaldo‘, which was initially slated to be the lead single off the just-released project.
Directed by The Alien, the comical video presents a day in the life of the biggest ballers in a fictional town called Oko.
The video opens with Falz, a barber, working at his shop and quite entertaining his customers. We also get a glimpse of Ajebutter 22 and BOJ going about the day’s work at their mechanic workshop. At an appointed time, they all freshen up and step into their outfit. They then pepper the whole neighbourhood with their hysterical drip. Fully unlocking their baller mode, they have fun with friends at the hood party, entertained by stuntmen and jesters. Enjoy the video below.
As promised, Ajebutter 22, BOJ and Falz have released their joint EP, “Make E No Cause Fight 2,” after a full week of teasers.
Earlier this week, BOJ and Ajebutter 22 took to their social media pages to announce the release of the sequel to their stellar 2018 5-track EP “Make E No Cause Fight.” But this time, they are also taking on a new member, the Headies Rap Album of the Year winner, Falz. He has also confirmed the news that he is now the third wheel in the coming EP scheduled for release on Friday, November 29.
Like it’s prequel, this new EP contains just five tracks, featuring only one guest apperance from the alaga himself, Reminisce. Listen to the project here.
Ajebutter 22 and frequent collaborator, BOJ have taken to their social media pages to announce the follow-up to their stellar 2018 joint “Make E No Cause Fight” EP.

And this time, the pair have taken up a new teammate; the 2019 Rap Album of the Year winner, Falz.

With records like ‘24‘, ‘Tungba‘ and ‘Yawa‘, the 5-track EP “Make E No Cause Fight” was one of the most enjoyable projects of last year even though it didn’t generate as much buzz as it deserved. We already know the Butter-and-BOJ combo to be a very capable one but now that they are teaming up with one of the most versatile rappers in these parts, our fingers are definitely crossed for Friday’s sequel.
As promised, Bella Alubo has released her new EP, “Summer’s Over” today, November 1. This is a follow-up to her “re-Bella” EP released to good reviews in 2018 with ‘Aiya‘ and ‘Ask Bolaji‘ as highlights.
This new EP contains eight tracks and two bonuses, both remixes to the TUC-produced ‘Agbani‘: a dance-centred record released in celebration of her birthday in August. This highly collaborative project features appearances from Mr Eazi, Zlatan, Ajebutter 22, Fresh L, T’neeya, Ezi Emela, Poe, Tengo John and Ko-jo cue.
Across the 10 tracks, “Summer’s Over” enjoys brilliant production from Que Beat, Syn X, Blaise Beatz, Guilty Beatz, Tuan Malik, and TUC.
Enjoy the album here and tell us what you think.
Admits the deafning noise as surrounding the trending Best Rapper In Africa conversation, Chocolate City boss, M.I Abaga has finally unveiled the visuals for ‘Playlist‘, one of the standouts off his “Rendevous” project. Coming over a year after its initial release, this video comes to the delight of fans that have been demanding the visuals for their favourite songs off the tape. This makes the Nonso Amadi-assisted ‘Playlist‘ the second video off the highly collaborative project following the visuals of ‘Lekki‘ with Falz and Ajebutter 22 released in October last year.
The UA-directed visuals finds a romantic M.I and his woman cruising around the city of Lagos. The video opens her visibly lonely and bored, trying to listen to the sultry record on TV and radio. She immediately brightens up as the rapper texts her to rendezvous, losing herself to the music as she readies herself for their outing. They eventually link up and have a good time.
Enjoy the video above.
Alte pioneer, BOJ has teased a follow-up project to his 2018 joint EP “Make E No Cause Fight” with friend and longtime collaborator, Ajebutter 22. This news comes to the delight of fans as many have expressed their anticipation of a sequel to the well-received 5-track EP that housed records like ‘Tungba‘, ‘Yawa‘ and ‘24‘.
BOJ took to his Twitter yesterday, May 29, to confirm the rumours of the untitled EP in the works with Ajebutter. “New Boj x Butter ep loading” he posted, alongside a black and white picture of the pair performing live on stage which Ajebutter retweeted.

Ever since the release of the joint EP last year, each of the pair has been busy churning out sizzling singles among which includes the raving ‘Awolowo‘ and ‘Lagos Love‘ which have been gaining much traction on the airwaves.
We are keeping our fingers crossed as we await more information on the anticipated upcoming project.
Ajebutter22 has unveiled the visuals for his raving romantic single, ‘Lagos Love‘. This is Ajebutter’s first single since the release of his joint EP “Make E No Cause Fight” with friend and longtime collaborator, BOJ.
This is also Ajebutter’s first solo release since his well-received sophomore 2017 album, “What Happens In Lagos“, which housed hits like ‘Bad Gang‘ and ‘Ghana Bounce‘ featuring Mr Eazi and Eugy.
In ‘Lagos Love‘, Ajebutter 22’s gruff and sensual voice is on full display over the scintillating and laid back Spax production. Throughout the record, he uses Lagos-centred elements and experiences to detail his romance with his lover.
The Prodigeezy-directed video matches the song’s elegance as it finds Ajebutter, his sweetheart and friends having fun around the city of Lagos. It also features cameo appearances from new gen acts like Blaqbonez, Tems and Dami Oniru.
Enjoy the beautiful video and share.
We’ve heard a ton of hits from Studio Magic and Ajebutter 22 and we’ve generally come to expect a hit whenever these guys come together.
After the facelift for Ghana Bounce, Studio Magic and Ajebutter 22 have dropped another one and it’s called Standard Guy produced by Studio Magic’s Platinum Toxx. The song has Ajebutter’s signature laid-back vocals over a mixture of equally calm instrumentals and heavy 808 bounce.
Nothing less than a jam.
