Fiokee, Simi& Oxlade Decry Errant Lovers On ‘Koni Koni’

Masterful guitarist Fiokee has recruited Simi and Oxlade for his new single ‘Koni Koni’. This comes months after he teamed up with his longtime friend and collaborator DJ Coublon and Teni for the multiple versioned ‘Osan’.

Produced also by the capable duo of Fiokee and DJ Coublon, ‘Koni Koni’ tells an all too familiar tale of a being in a relationship with an erring lover, and the mental and emotional stress that comes with loving such person. There are times when we give our all to our partners but this affection and commitment aren’t replicated. In fact, men were hilariously recounting hurtful tales of their experiences with erring female partners just a few days ago on Twitter. This makes this song feel like a soundtrack to that sporadic tirade.

As usual, Simi and Oxlade come through with soothing yet thrilling vocal performances as they lament to their erring lovers the folly of their ways. Fiokee wonderfully litters the record with his strutting guitar riffs.

Davido & Oxlade Join Skip Marley To Remix The H.E.R-Assisted ‘Slow Down’

Last year, Skip Marley the grandson of the reggae legend Bob Marley, broke his relative silence and teamed up with one of R&B most promising star, H.E.R on ‘Slow Down’. And ever since it’s release, the song has enjoyed cultural and commercial success, recently making Skip the first Jamaican-born singer to hit the number one spot on the Billboard Adult R&B chart, do so. The song has also inspired a couple of remixes, the latest featuring two generations of Afrobeats stars, Davido and Oxlade.

Davido opens the remix with an impassioned verse detailing how a love interest is so pressed on coming over to spend the quarantine with him. But Davido isn’t in a hurry; he wants to know if she’s really down for commitments, and not just him being an itch for her to scratch.

Oxlade then comes through with a scene-stealing verse to wrap the record, fully ready for some with rousing moments with his woman. It’s so beautiful to watch how Davido and Oxlade do not compromise their style and delivery just to cater to an international audience. No doubt, they brought this record home that you could even swear you’re listening to an afrobeats record.

Enjoy this stirring remix above.

Oxlade, Etuk Ubong premiere new projects on PGM Radio (Quarantine Edition)

Welcome to another edition of The PGM Radio Show. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had an online session, with members of the club joining in via Zoom and Instagram Live. It was an unforgettable experience.

We had two amazing acts on the show; first, we had Etuk Ubong, trumpeter and composer of international repute in the ‘building’. We talked about his new album, titled ‘Africa Today’ slated for release later in June this year. He also gave us an exclusive listen to the first single of his album titled Purpose Of Creation which explores themes of injustice and spirituality while blending a mix of afrobeat, highlife, and jazz to create a wonderful symphony. A type of sound he calls ‘Earth music’.

Next, we had a listen to one of the most beautiful albums out this year. Oxygene! By talented act; Oxlade. This body of work which boasts of amazing songs such as O2, weakness and away promises to be on the charts for a long while.

From all of us at The PGM Club, we continue to admonish you to stay indoors, wear face marks if you absolutely need to go out, wash and sanitize your hands. Together we will fight this pandemic to a standstill.

Oxlade’s Debut EP “Oxygene” Is Almost Here

One of Nigeria’s most gifted singers on the rise, Oxlade is finally set to release his debut EP titled “Oxygene.” This young singer who has been the toast of the town since ever since his rise to prominence last year is finally taking his game beyond killer features and sizzling singles to provide his teeming fans with a body of work. Oxlade isn’t there yet but it’s almost certain that he’s one of the heirs to the Afropop throne if there’s any.

Earlier today, the singer unveiled the album art and the tracklist for the EP alongside a message for his fans. “Hello World, after the many collaborations and sprinkles of singles, I am ready to put out my first project titled “Oxygene” named cause music is the air I breathe, S/O to my team @TroniqMusic. Now let me take you “Away” with the first single,” he shared on Twitter.

This new EP is set to be released next Friday, March 27 and as his debut and introductory release, it contains just six tracks. Interestingly, “Oxygene” is almost entirely an Oxlade affair as it features only one guest, Moelogo. Production-wise however, he flys on the wings of Echo, Lush, Nosa Apollo, Dera and Spax.

Spax who has successfully evaded the spotlight of the media for a while now also handles most of the engineering of the tape, while also teaming up with Godfrey O Eguakun to executive produce the EP.

Surprisingly, this project features no pre-released tracks as all six tracks are previously unheard sparkling new numbers. The project is, however, to be led by ‘Away’ which is now available across all streaming platforms. You can now pre-save the album on apple music above.

Alpha Counts Down To Christmas With ’12 Days’

One of the most gifted rap acts on the rise, Alpha Ojini has released his first post-“Chvmeleon” record, a Christmas themed number titled ‘12 Days‘. Just over a month ago, Alpha released his stellar 14-track sophomore album “Chvmeleon” to good reviews, and it featured appearances from M.I Abaga, Ghost (SDC), Paybac, Blaqbonez, Psycho YP, Ycee, Bella Alubo, Oxlade, Goodgirl LA and Kemi Smallz.

Across this self-produced cut described as a “Christmas tale,” Alpha underscores the spirit of the celebration which is centred around giving and showing love to family, friends and others around us. Aptly released twelve days before Christmas,  the multi-gifted rapper urges share love, give out and enjoy the holiday season as well as we can even we don’t have much.

This is no doubt a Christmas song that most of us can relate to, one told from the perspective of a Nigerian hustler in a tongue common to all. Merry Christmas in advance and remember to spread love always. Enjoy the record here.

Alpha Ojini Is Bringing Along M.I Abaga, Ghost, GoodGirl LA, Ycee, Oxlade And More On “Chvmeleon”

Even if you do not know Alpha Ojini by name, you must have come across his work one way or another. Remember that sweet-toned “Focus” voice tag you hear at the end of most of your favourite 2019 rap songs? Yeah, that’s Alpha’s tagline for his sound engineering outfit.

A bundle of talents, Alpha is also a producer and a rapper – and he’s absolutely great at both. In fact, he was recently nominated in the Best Rap Single category of the 2019 Headies for his joint with Payper Corleone, ‘Sacrifices‘, one of the highlights off Payper’s stellar tape, “Fly Gangstar From The 90s.”

And now, it’s even more good news from Alpha as he announces the release of his sophomore album, “Chvmeleon,” which has been in the works since December last year. This is would be a follow-up to his well-received debut, “Half Price” that housed standouts like ‘Ocean Boy‘, ‘Ludo‘ and the cheeky ‘Yahooboy Muzik‘.

According to his recent tweet, this new album is scheduled for release on Friday, November 1st and it boasts a mouth-watering round of features, with appearances from some of the best wordsmiths in the game at the moment. On this self-produced project, Alpha is bringing along an a-team of M.I Abaga, Ghost (SDC), Paybac, Blaqbonez, Psycho YP, Ycee, Bella Alubo, Oxlade, Goodgirl LA and Kemi Smallz.

Now, tell me you’re not excited?

The Video for Blaqbonez’s ‘Mamiwota’ Featuring Oxlade is Finally Here

Just a couple of days after releasing the dust-raising ‘Best Rapper In Africa‘ freestyle, Blaqbonez has finally shared the visuals to ‘Mamiwota” featuring Oxlade. This is of course a standout cut off Blaqbonez’s debut album “Bad Boy Blaq“, which wrapped up the LAMB August rollout from Chocolate City last year.

Directed by TG Omori, the video finds Blaqbonez and his lover having wild fun while grocery shopping. Later in the video, a love-struck Oxlade is led on by Blaq’s girl to his own peril as he ends up getting suckerpunched, jumped and robbed by Blaq  (a move that’s reminiscent of Lil Wayne and Kendrick Lamar‘s 2018 joint, ‘Mona Lisa‘). The video ends with Blaqbonez and his girl running off with their spoil, Bonnie and Clyde style.
