The journey that led to the release of this album has been an eye opener for me, I have learnt so much over these years…

Learnt to deal with my shortcomings and embrace my victories, basically love life and appreciate all that comes with it. I’ve learnt to see from different perspectives of life, and this helped me appreciate my heritage, who I am and the role I play. And I’ve embodied all that experience and knowledge in this album!!!“

Joey B drops new song ‘Cold’ alongside its visuals with Sarkodie with Cameo apperances from King Promise, Dee Money and a host of many others. This is coming after dropping sensational 9 track album ‘Lava feels’. The only problem with this song is that it ends too quick but it is pure two mins of heat. The song might be titled ‘Cold’ but it is literally Fire. From hot lyrics to powerful renditions, Joey B and Sarkodie prove why they are owning the Ghanian rap space. ‘Cold’ is about grinding through icey streets while navigating harsh elements. Plus there were deadly punches to Aisha Modi of Peace FM…

“Innit, no label I did it.

When you hear Krept say roof

We no dey miss no dealings

Too many enemies

Coz too many frenemies

If I leave this world

I go to Mars

Mene me pen mene me bars

We no go blend we go no pass

Aim For the mula we dey shoot for the stars…”

With an all men cast draped in White shirts, the video is a feast for the eyes. The song was produced by veteran Dj Krept and its Video directed by Yaw Phanta. Click here to watch.

Visuals for Omo Ghetto’s soundtrack; Askamaya Anthem drops

As the Nigerian music industry continues to grow and evolve, music in the Nigerian movie space also continues to grow with it. Once upon a time, not a lot of thought and attention were paid to soundtracks that accompanied movies but all that is rapidly changing. Not only has the quality of soundtracks improved,  artists have now gone ahead to create soundtrack albums for their visual content. A favourite is Basketmouth’s “Yabasi” which was such a huge hit.

Top actress Funke Akindele has released the video to her movie “Omo ghetto The saga’s” original soundtrack titled “Askamaya Anthem”. The video consists of Funke Akindele herself, Chioma Akpotha, Eniola Badmus and Bimbo Thomas, all expressing their badassery with sick punchlines.

The video was directed by Funke’s husband JJC skillz and is an excellent teaser as to what happens in the movie. To watch this, click here

DRB LasGidi just dropped the video for their smash single ‘Trouble’ featuring ’Tems’. 

Alte scene pioneers DRB — Boj, Fresh L and Teezee, who co-founded The Native — explore futuristic scenes and vibes in their new music video for “Trouble”. Taken from their 2020 album Pioneers (which boasts features from the likes of Lady Donli, Cruel Santino and Odunsi The Engine), the single features killer Nigerian singer-songwriter Tems, who also stars in the video.
In collaboration with Jameson’s Seen & Heard campaign, DRB delivers a smooth take on this video to create an Action/Mystery based flick with all stars in attendance.
 
“To us it depicts a dystopian universal version of Nigeria,” DRB says. “We wanted to cross-reference stuff from classic Nollywood, movies like The Billionaire’s Club, and mix that up with stuff like The Matrix. We loved the juxtaposition of how those two worlds collide, and that’s what DRB is all about — mixing up all the stuff we know culturally and putting it together. The video was directed by the brilliant Ademola Falomo who we’ve worked with before. He’s worked with a lot of new exciting artists including Rema and TEMS, so it was a great experience for us to work with him again. He really executed the vision: a dystopian Nigeria with a twist of Nollywood action vibes.”
 
This stellar video was directed by Ademola Falomo and produced by Ladder, Lex and Booker.

This comes about four months since his last solo effort, ‘Assignment’, the heartwarming record where BOJ reveals he doesn’t just want to be a passive partner as he is fully vested in whatever he has with his women.

BOJ himself comes with the hook that eases itself into your soul with his sensual gruff vocals. Davido and Mr Eazi then come up with brilliant verses well-tailored for this dancehall-equse jam.

The accompanying video directed by Ademola Falomo opens BOJ trying to woo his love interest in a desert setting. As the superstars take turns to deliver their sugar tongued verses, the setting continues to change with BOJ, Davido and Mr Eazi all having fun.
