Maka’s ‘Waiting For You’ Is A Daring Declaration Of Love

Over the weekend, Maka gave us a taste of her post-“It’s Not You, It’s Me” material. Teaming up with seasoned hip-hop producer Xblaze, Maka released ‘Waiting For You’,  her first 2020 single.

On ‘Waiting For You’, Maka tells the tale of a romance waiting to happen over head-bopping 808 drum riffs and vaporwave synths. With her soulful vocals, she draws you into a world of a woman unapologetic about her feelings. Her love interest appears to be timid and she, therefore, takes the initiative and openly declares her affection for him. “I just need your love,” she submits.

With this single, Maka show that can be confident without being angry and militant. “By embodying her full self as an assertive woman in a world that wants women to remain silent while men do all the chasing, Maka’s bold declaration of love simultaneously reads as individual and universal”

Listen to the single above.

Boogey And PayBac Team Up Again Under Their Moniker, The Lost & Found To Release Sophomore Album “Alternate Ending”

The hip-hop duo,  The Lost & Found, made up of two of Nigeria’s finest wordsmiths, Boogey and PayBac, has released its sophomore album titled “Alternative Ending“. This album comes just three years after the release of their acclaimed 2016 debut album “Face Off” which got almost everyone in the hip-hop world talking and left them in awe of their amazing talent.

These two acts have proven themselves to be among the most prolific and hardest working rappers around, churning out project after project, while working alongside other skilled producers and industry colleagues.

Just last year, Boogey released his solo debut album “Nouveau Niveau” and “Never Enough” EP with producer Charlie X. Paybac on the other hand also released his debut album “Biggest Tree” as well as “Autopilot“, his collaborative EP with Charlie X to favourable reviews.

This album. “Alternate Ending” contains 13 tracks and features a wide range of artists. For this project, they recruit the efforts of Danladi, Mon Lee, Lyn, Aramide, Jazzz, Maka and Monki Bznzz. The pair appeared together on all but two records on the album. As Paybac delievers a solo performance on the ninth track “The Boogeyman”, while Boogey finds himself as a lone soldier on the tenth track “Paybac Time”. Both tracks are produced and engineered by SizzlePRO.

Just like their debut “Face Off”, the pair finds themselves in the able hands of Chalie X, Sizzle Pro and Black Intelligence as they maintain a steady production team in their second effort.

November Isn’t Over According To Eri Ife

Singer/Songwriter Eri Ife made a major impression earlier in the year with YLLW, his joint EP with ace producer/singer/rapper Remy Baggins. The EP was a major introduction to the Lagos scene for this artist.

The singer just released a three-track compilation to mark the beginning of November. The project features Artists Maka and BarelyAnyHook and is produced by Remy Baggins and Sir Bastien.

November is three songs to get you deep in your feelings in styles that aren’t typical of Eri Ife. The exploration is great to hear and the production is stellar.
