If you hear anyone say again that Hip-Hop in Nigeria is dead, refer them to Right Before The Fame by rapper/songwriter/producer/videographer Joey Decorum.
This young man made waves while still studying at the University of Lagos in 2015 with his single Photophobic with rapper Ziggy2G. Making music for a minute, Joey released his debut EP aptly titled Right Before The Fame early this year and this writer is sorry she’s just bringing it to you. The EP got heat when it came out for fan faves Rec001 featuringMyEx, So Wavy and WMW (Right Before The Fame). This EP is completely self-written and produced by DJ Kraizee, KachyVibes, The Sheriff, the other throne and Synesthetic with special assistance from Vaedar, qvxdri, thelookTM and WNDRFL.
The EP tells stories of heartbreak and hurt and also of an artist that will reach the pinnacle. This is an EP you should buy.

Chubstar entertainment’s headline act and music connoisseur ‘Zirra’ releases his brand new single ‘Agbada’ where he features Chocolate city’s Mr Do Something ‘Koker’.
The ‘Reinhard Tega’ produced track showcases Zirra’s versatility as an artiste. The afro-pop fusion track is also the first official release of the highly anticipated EP under the stage name ‘Zirra’ from the already accustomed ‘TimmyT.
The track is a great re-introduction into the scene with the promise of even more electrifying and body pumping tunes from the young artiste.

Ever since the release of his debut mixtape VIV, talented producer, singer and songwriter Remy Baggins has featured heavily on our radar.
In this time, he has built up an impressive collection of diverse features and production credits that have imprinted his distinct sound on us. Simply put as both a producer and artist, he excels in experimenting with multiple genres and blending melodies to create an impressive signature sound.
So, when we heard that he was releasing a new EP, titled Eigengrau, we were so excited we asked for an advance copy and now we are pleased to present to you our review.
Eigengrau is a deeply personal project, one that Remy says he recorded at a time when he was depressed and confused about his next career and life choices with the latter serving as the theme to the project’s opening track “Tell Me”. Sounding like the soundtrack of a deep movie monologue, Remy expresses his frustrations about his growth in the music industry and also as a person. The track is the darkest reflection of the project’s theme and it serves as a not so subtle precursor for what comes next in “Why?”
“Why?” is one of the EP’s standout track. It sees Remy experimenting with a smooth blend of Afro-Pop and South African House with an intriguing storyline about a stalking ex. This is what good music sounds like with relatable lyrics and a wonderful melodious vibe on the instrumentals.
Next up is “Paranoid” which is kinda like a complement or inverse of “Why?” with Remy the one stalking a lover or ex. The track is slower and more laid back but the delivery is subtle and superb. In keeping with the project’s theme the song is somewhat reflective and sounds inspired by true events. Another stand out track.
On “Maybe…” co-written by the super talented Efe Oraka, Remy is back full and centered on his struggles but with a more upbeat, up tempo vibe. It’s at this moment that Remy begins to look past his pain and the track is yet another vibe on a project packed full of gems.
But perhaps more than any other, “STAYWOKE” is a reflection of Remy’s experimental style with him rapping over a heavy trap infused beat. Fully emerged from the darkness in “Tell Me”, Remy’s fighting back with fury but at the same he has created an anthem for the up and coming underdog.
In our opinion, this is the project’s stand out track.
Closing out with a very “trippy ass outro”, what is clear at the end of this project is that Remy definitely isn’t afraid to experiment with his production and song writing. He’s also progressed from VIV and his sound and songs are a lot more concise. The progress he’s making as a creator is evident and Eigengrau is already one of our favorite projects in what has been a stellar year for alternative Nigerian music.
We at the PGM club, highly recommend that you take the time out to listen to this project and we eagerly await Remy’s future projects.
