With just a few hours remaining to “Enjoy Your Life,” Lady Donli has unveiled the tracklist for her highly anticipated debut album. This comes with an accompanying declaration that sets the mental tone for the album scheduled for release tomorrow.

For the 15-track project, Lady Donli brings along a super team of Tems, Benjiflow, Somadina, Amaarae, Vanjess, Tomi Thomas, Solis and the Cavemen.

Forget all you knew about me” she warns in the accompanying declaration. She further revealed that the Donli we are going to be hearing on this tape is a reformed one that has been shaped by her experiences, feelings and a genuine desire to understand and perfect her craft.

“Enjoy Your Life” is, therefore, presenting a new Donli, one that is fueled by her desire to create a timeless piece that reflects herself and her culture.

Executive produced by herself and The Cavemen, the album is singlehandedly engineered by the grandmaster GMK, save for ‘Around‘ which was mixed by Tay Iwar.

Kida Kudz Taps Wiley For New Single ‘Bounce’

Kida Kudz is showing no signs of slowing down. Just a few days ago, the Disturbing London signee released ‘Moon Walk‘ and while we’ve still not gotten over the bop and he is already serving us a new monster jam titled ‘Bounce’.

On this record teams up with the East London rapper, Wiley to create yet another club banger that could get you in your worst behaviour. In the accompanying video, Kida Kida is found in a sexy car wash with the hot models cheerfully obliging his requests to ‘make it bounce’.

The raunchy video is directed by Capone and Guise.

A Defiant Tems Is Ready To Break Free In ‘Try Me’

Amidst her few and far between releases, Tems has done well to leave a lasting impression. It has taken her just two singles and guest spots on a couple of projects to convince us that she is one of the most talented singers in the country rising through the ranks. Many could even swear by the old gods and the new that she is the future of Afro-Soul and R&B. And she is now back to take it a step further with her new firey single titled ‘Try Me‘.

A follow up to her year-opening stunner, ‘Looku Looku‘, this single find Tems teaming up with Remy Baggins on the production with additional vocals from Dami Oniru.

Over a simple and laidback beat that lays a good ground for her thrilling vocals to shine, a spirited Tems is on a mission to set herself and her Rebel Gang free from oppression as she continuously asks why her subjugator keeps pushing her to the wall.  On Twitter, she explained that this new single is a breakout anthem for the oppressed, underrated and understated who have been suppressed from use and abuse.

With a powerful sing-along-hook, this song is so infectious such that’d get you in the zone right from your first listen. If there was ever any doubt about Tems skill as a dazzling vocalist and songwriter, ‘Try Me‘ puts that to rest.

Suffice to say that this song comes highly recommended from us at the PGM Club. Enjoy.

Zamir Is Blunt And Vicious On ‘Anti’ With Ycee

Zamir has teamed up with Ycee for his new single titled ‘Anti‘. This is Zamir’s first release since his year-opening Kida Kudz-assisted jam, ‘Jan 1st‘.

The new Tochi Bedford-produced single is no doubt one of the hardest hip-hop records out of Nigeria at the moment. It has this dark and intense feel to it with trippy keys and hard-hitting kicks.  Zamir sets the record straight that he’s anti-social and just wants his space and circle as tight as it can get. “I don’t like people, yeah I know” he declares as he opens the record.

In his verse, Zamir also recounts his musical journey and his emergence in the music industry. Ycee’s verse finds the ANBT Ceo delivering one of his best feature performances this year with a polished flow and airtight delivery.

Directed by Ademola Falomo, the video finds the wild and free pair chilling in the neighbourhood amidst bike and car stunts.

Listen To Mich Straaw’s New Three-Track EP “Untitled”

Barely two months after the release of his well-received debut album “255“, Mich Straaw is back with a new project, “Untitled.” Last week, the soul sensation treated us to the first single off the EP, ‘Smile Bright Pass That (LA Sun)‘ and now, we are being served the entire project.

On this body of work, Mich Straaw steps back from the boards as the production of the project is solely handled by Top Chief – who is a chef and a music producer.

A couple of weeks back, Mich Straaw premiered the tape on the PGM Radio Show with Douglas Jekan and Zed-Eye. When asked why this EP is coming so close to the release of his previous body of work, Mich responded that “I just wanted something that would be easy to listen to. The 255 album was for the world. This one is more for like Naija here. It gives me mainland vibes.”

Containing just three songs, Mich sees the project as a stream, flowing directly from the beginning to the end with the second track serving as a mild interlude.

The critically acclaimed 12-track project housed standout records like ‘Ocean Boy‘, ‘Yahoo boy Muzik‘ and the title track, ‘Half Price‘. This new self-produced celebratory freestyle is titled ‘Madagascar’.

On the two-minutes long freestyle, Alpha is relaxed and assertive as he puts his gifts as a lyricist on full display. He is enjoying himself on the chilled but bouncy beat and even has a few words for detractors who would have to something to say about this effort. He briefly also takes us on a personal journey that led him to music towards the end of his verse.

Earlier this month, the super-gifted rapper, producer and sound engineer announced his sophomore album, “CHVMELEON”, scheduled for release later this year- titled after what he thinks to be his spirit animal. And this stunning display of skill is no doubt a sure appetizer for the coming project.
