Buju Secures Burna’s Midas Touch On ‘Lenu’ Remix

About three weeks after the initial announcement, one of Nigeria’s most promising acts, Buju, has released the long-teased remix of ‘Lenu’ featuring Burna Boy. This comes alongside the official announcement of his signing with the African Giant-led imprint, Spaceship Records. This would be Buju’s second release in 2020, coming just a couple of months after his ‘Mind Games’ team-up with Ejoya music.

Spiced with a very catchy sing-along hook, ‘Lenu’ was one of the records that propelled Buju to the limelight in his breakout year, 2019. Now coming through with a remix vocally backed by the hitman, Burna Boy, this club-friendly jam looks like a very good effort to usher him into the next level of his already promising career.

The accompanying visuals is a high school-themed video directed by the current go-to guy for top-notch visuals, TG Omori. Across the video, Buju goes about his day in school with an air that screams fly school kid. Burna Boy in his part plays the role of the big brother who helps boost his school rep coming to pick him up in a super cool convertible Rolls Royce. Buju is later seen mouthing his verse in a beautiful white house with Sia-styled models.

Just a few weeks back, Buju had a brief fall from grace when a leaked dm unveiled the vile side of the young singer’s personality. But with this thrilling Spaceship-debut, he might just be easing his way back to the hearts of music lovers.

GMK & Tomi Thomas’ ‘Lagos (Everyday)’ Is An Ode To Gidi’s Hustle Spirit

A few weeks ago, the acclaimed alte playmaker GMK reunited Sugarbana and Prettyboy DO on his year opening record, ‘Strong and Solid’. To follow it up, GMK has teamed up with his friend and frequent collaborator Tomi Thomas to release their new joint to unsuspecting fans. Dropped to help people get through these times, the duo has dished out a beautiful ode to our celebrated city titled ‘Lagos (Everyday)’.

‘Lagos (Everyday)’ is a meditation on the dominant hustle culture which the city it is titled after houses. This is one of the outstanding traits that separates Lagos from several others across the country. And even though the city is Nigeria’s financial capital, poverty is very much extensive even in the midst of plenty.

To give the listeners a first-hand feel of this culture, the song is littered with soundbites of Lagosians going about their daily grind on the streets of Lagos. The city isn’t exactly kind to those waiting for handouts, so everyone has to hustle for their bread regardless of its legality.

No doubt, GMK and Tomi Thomas did so well to soundtrack all that with this laid back and infectious record. And as expected the record finds GMK on the boards while Tomi Thomas and his guitar cruise smoothly over the mellow beat.

Given the frequency of GMK’s releases this year, it might be safe to start looking out for a new project from the producer, but until then enjoy this new record that comes highly recommended from us at the PGM Club.

Kwesi Arthur Assists Nonso Amadi’s New Single ‘Comfortable’

We are officially in the final stages of the rollout for one of the most anticipated projects of 2019. Nonso Amadi has joined forces with Ghanaian rapper, Kwesi Arthur to release a new single titled ‘Comfortable‘. This would be his last single before the release of the June-bound “Free” EP.

Comfortable‘ is a chilled and laid-back single in which Nonso Amadi warns his one-night stands not to catch feelings and fall in love with him because he is only here for the night. Kwesi Arthur also comes through with a solid verse and a polished flow that adds a new flavour to the record.

Free” would be Nonso Amadi’s sophomore solo EP, coming four years after the release of his debut, “Alone”. Alongside ‘Comfortable‘, this new 5-track EP is suspected to contain other pre-released singles like ‘Emergency‘ and ‘No Crime‘.

Amaarae Teams Up With Wande Coal On New Single ‘Spend Some Time’

Super gifted Ghanaian-American singer Amaarae has joined forces with Nigerian vocalist, Wande Coal on her new single titledSpend Some Time. This song is jointly produced by Obed and Rvdical The Kid. Rvdical The Kid also works with Mikemillz to mix and master the record.

Spend Some Time‘ comes after a long self-imposed hiatus from the Warrior Princess since the release of her critically acclaimed “Passionfruit Summers” EP. Although, it’s important to note that in this gap, she has appeared as a featured guest on a number of records. One of her most memorable performance is on Santi‘s ‘Rapid Fire‘. The 2018 smash hit in which she delievers a striking and memorable verse that left many craving for more.

On this Wande Coal-assisted mid-tempo record, the soft-voiced singer calls for her absent lover to spend some more time regardless of the conditions. With her amiable vocals,  her warmth shines through the record as her mastery as a lyricist is also on full display.

Wande Coal also delievers a beautiful performance and closes the record with a scintillating chant that is reminiscent of his delivery on ‘So Mi So‘. On the record, the two display deeply fascinating and seamless chemistry that sets the record on the straight path to radio success.

The David Nichol-Sey directed dark-themed video finds a lonely Amaarae on a red-sheeted bed, craving her absent lover. She then steps into the club to enjoy the night with her friends who are clearly excited to have her around.

Spend Some Time‘ is easy to sink to and therefore comes highly recommended from us at the PGM Club. Check out a snippet below.

Santi Releases Debut Album “Mandy & The Jungle”

The wait is finally over! Santi has released his highly-anticipated debut album titled “Mandy & The Jungle“. This comes three years after his acclaimed EP “Suzie’s Funeral“, which placed Santi in the radar of many as one of those to hold the helm of the industry in a few years.

Mandy & The Jungle” is a 16-track full-length project that includes pre-released singles like ‘Sparky‘, ‘Freaky‘ and the monster-hit ‘Rapid Fire‘.

This highly collaborative project features Tay Iwar, Nonso Amadi, Shane Eagle, Dram, Kris Irie, Bridge, Amaarae, Seki, Tomi Agape, Kida Kudz and Godlink. Also, its production is mainly handled by fellow Monster Boys – GMK and Genio Bambino with assists from Odunsi (The Engine), Le Mav, Higo, Doz, James Isibor, 1Takennandos and Barst.

Just like his previous projects, this album is a themed one.  In fact, this is centred around Mandy (a fictional character), who Santi describes as “a girl who has no idea the power that lies inside her

Further speaking about the album, he reveals that “Over the past two years, I learnt more about expressing myself and translating that feeling into sound and visuals. Music has always been about the feeling for me, what it does to you, what it makes you remember, and most importantly where it takes you to. I decided to create a universe, combining everything that has ever influenced or inspired me.”

The songs are a soundtrack to this universe, and I hope when you listen to ‘Mandy & The Jungle’, you will make the best memories with them so that each time you feel like escaping, reminiscing or feeling, these songs are here to take you to your own universe.” He continued.

So cop this album, and follow Mandy on her journey in the jungle.
