Join Johnny Drille In His Search On ‘Finding Efe’

Nigerian alternative sensation, Johnny Drille has released a new single, titled ‘Finding Efe‘, his third single in 2019, after opening the year with the dual release of ‘Forever’ and ‘Shine’ which many cant seem to get enough of. He also made an appearance on Ladipoe‘s latest single ‘Jaiye‘ which has been gaining traction on the airwaves.

This single is actually the product of a real life experience, which Johnny Drille shared on his Twitter about two days ago, about a girl he met briefly in Benin but he missed out on his chance to get her contact.

On this new self-produced record, Johnny Drille is a shy secret admirer who timidly missed out on his chance to express himself to Efe (as implied by the title) and has therefore been looking for her ever since. He has made several futile efforts just to reach out to her and this song seems to be his last hope of reaching out to her. As expected with Johnny Drille’s songs, this record is highly rich in instrumentation and a vivid imagery.

The video opens with Johnny Drille, a photographer, packing his bags and getting in his ride for a long search for his crush. He goes around with a Polaroid picture in hand trying to locate Efe. The beautiful video is directed by Timmy Davies.

Kida Kudz Presents New Trippy Tune ‘Jiggy Bop’

UK-based Nigerian act, Kida Kudz has released a new jam titled ‘Jiggy Bop’ which was earlier  premiered on Beat 1 Radio with Julie Adenuga. Over a very trippy but minimalist instrumental a relaxed and reflective  Kida Kudz just delivers a performance that makes this record sound different from what he has been putting out lately.

 

The song opens with a piercing but soothing flute riff which remains the dominaierring sound throughout the record, such that it sticks in your head right from your first listen.  Enjoy this slow jam.

This is also the official single of her long-awaited debut studio album which is scheduled to be released later this year.  

 

In this single, the acts help us to project our addiction to the legal tender that most of us spend our entire lives trying to accumulate and spend. Lady Donli helps us to admit the addiction which seems to be the most viral all over the world. This song has one message. This life is one so enjoy it as much as you can.

 

Lady Donli has proven herself over the years to be one of the acts to watch out for, given the consistency of the premium quality of her releases filled with her social awareness and well-rounded artistry. She is currently reviving mentorship from Mr. Eazi and other musical professionals under Mr. Eazi’s Empawa Africa. This song officially kicks off the countdown to release of her debut full-length project titled ‘ENJOY YOUR LIFE‘.  The album is set for release in the 3rd quarter of 2019.

Looku Looku – Tems

Last year, Tems popped on the radar; a very hard-to-ignore presence with her single Mr RebelHer distinct vocals put her on our watchlist. The singer finished last year with a flourish featuring on The Collectiv3’s second compilation Live. Create. Repeat. and amazing live performances including the Aux Live Concert.

Tems’ new single Looku Looku produced by Oddio is another very emotive track. Looku Looku  is a dedication to the discontent man: ‘what are you always looking for outside when I’m right here?’ after which she voices her need for his attention and validation.

We’re definitely looking forward to more from this amazingly talented woman.

Here For You – AUSTIIN ft Tieno

Hip-Hop/Soul Singer, AUSTIIN, is a budding Nigerian recording artist, songwriter and producer.

His initial releases include tracks Trouble (featuring Buju and Essienwhich he only has credits for as a producer.

His debut Single Here For You (featuring Tieno) was released in December 2017 and it quickly became a fan fave.

AUSTIIN has been consistent with his craft in 2018 releasing Thrills, originally a prelude to his 2019 project titled WRATH OF AUGUST. The track was produced and engineered by producer and frequent collaborator, Trill Xoe.

Thrills sees AUSTIIN stay true to his experimental trap sound as he delivers dreamy vocals over Xoe’s harrowing chords and hard-hitting subs. The dolorous shadow cast over the entire track by the production is the perfect backdrop for AUSTIIN’s emotive tale-telling of the struggle to make it in his city, Lagos. He sings of his plan to “make a milli off a sick deal” and how far he is willing to go to get through the struggle and achieve success in a difficult terrain.

Thrills is yet another testament to his remarkable chemistry with Trill Xoe.
