Watch The Video For Dapo Tuburna And Mayorkun’s ‘See Finish’

About a month ago, fast-rising singer Dapo Tuburna teamed up with DMW star Mayorkun to release ‘See Finish’, his first single since ‘Penthouse’ with trap sensation Psycho YP and former label mate, Ycee. Produced by Quebeat, the track meditates on over-familiarity. It finds both acts dishing out guidelines to prevent ‘see finish’ and demystification which would strip you of your respect. “No let them see you finish,” they ultimately submit.

And just earlier today, Dapo Tuburna has unveiled a very colourful video to accompany the raving single, directed by Bash Em. Enjoy the video above.

 

Mayorkun Fields A Super Team Of M.I, Vector, Sinzu & Ycee On ‘Geng’ Naija Remix

Mayorkun scored a big one with ‘Geng’. Released to kick off the year, the song has been one of the most successful Nigerian songs in the past couple months. The song also generated it’s viral moment when it dropped with several acts jumping on the beat to deliver their covers. This cultural moment has now morphed into a four-track EP the DMW star titles “Geng Remix.” This compilation includes remixes from different geographic zones featuring an all-star cast of Kwesi Arthur, Ms.Banks, Ricky Rick and others.

For the Naija remix, Mayorkun taps some of the best rappers we have around, feilding a super team of Sinzu, Ycee, Vector and M.I. Over the all too familiar Quebeat-production, Sinzu opened the floor with a fire verse which we had initially heard on Twitter. Sinzu rides the beat like a wave with a bullish delivery that set the bar high for the other rappers coming behind. Ycee followed up with his cheeky verse enwrapped in multiple flows. Vector, however, did not live up to the hype, coming through with a lukewarm verse while M.I came out guns blazing at detractors to close the record.

Enjoy this record above and let us know who you think killed it.

Ajebutter 22 & Mayorkun Are All About That Reciprocal Energy On ‘Ginger You’

Ever since Ajebutter 22 revealed he had quit his 9-to-5 leaving enough room for him to focus on his music, we have been waiting for a new release from the rapper. And almost without warning, Ajebutter has joined forces with Mayorkun – who already has a 2020 hit to his name – for his 2020 debut, ‘Ginger You’. This comes just a couple of months after his collaborative tape, “Make E No Cause Fight 2” with friends and frequent collaborators, BOJ and Falz.

This Zanku-ready anthem is produced by the eccentric producer, Spax. Undoubtedly, this sizzling record testifies a great deal to Spax’s range as a producer.

Mayorkun on the other hand is on hook duty and he does so well to deliver one that’d get you hooked upon your first listen. As usual, Ajebutter comes through with his cool, calm and collected flow that coats his cheesy and goofy bars.

On ‘Ginger You’, Ajebutter 22 and Mayorkun are ready to give you that love and energy, but only one condition: it must be reciprocal. Anything less and you have no deal. 

Enjoy the record above.
