Fever – Wizkid

On Independence Day, Wizkid dropped two hit songs Master Groove and Fever amid all the recent drama.  They were the Pop star’s first official releases this year as teasers off his upcoming album Made In Lagos.

 The singer has been in the headlines a lot this final quarter of the year for both good and bad reasons, most recently defending his Best Male West Africa title and winning the Video of The Year (for Soco) award at the recently concluded AFRIMMA. The singer had also recently been called out on social media by the mother of his first child for being a “social media dad” and the just-released Meji Alabi-directed video for his single Fever is sure to stir up more controversy. The video for the up-tempo Afro-Pop track is colorful and stars Tiwa Savage as Star Boy’s love interest (sparking up more interest in their relationship: a PR stunt, a statement or both?) creating a very sexy vibe. Since its release this morning, the video has received a myriad of reactions with most fans trolling Wizkid (with his less-than-stellar fatherhood) and Tiwa’s ex-husband Teebillz (for his relationships with Wiz and Tiwa) and others comparing the video to Davido’s Assurance

Tiwa’s appearance in this particular video at this time was definitely intentional; Wizkid and Tiwa have been attacked a lot on social media this year for an alleged love affair (particularly since Wiz posted pictures of Tiwa on his Instagram page on her birthday in February). Her appearance may just be a publicity stunt – which fans will find hard to believe because the pheromones literally jump at you as you watch the video – but it definitely makes a bold statement akin to throwing the middle finger. The video is very sexy and in this writer’s opinion is in no way a ripoff of Assurance (with or without the controversy surrounding it), as it is a less stiff interpretation of when money enter, love is sweeter.

With Fever, Wizkid and Meji Alabi masterfully pulled a Kardashian and created a hit video with just enough controversy to keep tongues wagging. You should see it.

TY Bello – COLD (review)

TY Bello releases COLD, a song that serves as a gentle reminder, a subtle nudge, and a quiet wake up call to social and civic responsibility. It carries in its rhythm, the honest pangs of the much-needed political revival the nation needs at the moment simply because we move on too quickly.

Wurld & Sarz release debut single “Trobul”

Anticipation has been brewing ever since the afro soul hit maker, singer-songwriter and recording artist, WurlD, put out the hit single “Show You Off”, which was a huge fan favorite.  Moreover, word on th streets is that he has also teamed up with ace producer Sarz – who is the brains behind the global hit, “Come Closer”on a collaborative project called Trobul.

This collaborative album was born out of an electrifying chemistry between the two musical heavyweights, and an insatiable appetite for a progressive world sound.

Trobul which is the first single of their collaborative project was given to us to premiere exclusively on the PGM Radio Show and to no surprise, fans loved it. 

With Sarz’s unique and inventive way of making beats, coupled with WurlD’s songwriting and infectious vocals, Trobul is sure to further cement these two powerhouses as leaders in the progressive afro soundscape; a space inhabited by a new generation of creatives pushing boundaries of world music with unique sound and style

The project is set to be released in the summer of 2018.
