Midnight PlayList - the sweetest albums

Just now? 
Fire of Zamani, by Ice Prince 
and then
Open Doors, by Nosa

But I could easily add
Merchants, Dealers, and Slaves, by Brymo
Anytime Soon, by Ajebutter22

So lucky, so lucky to have all this embarrassment of riches, really, because there's also Baddo and the best album ever; The Girls like J'Odie, Ibiyemi, Asa, Nneka; Yoruba brother 9ice and Igbo brother Flavour; from-up-on-high Jesse-consciousness, and that's just the start of my list of slow-tempo options.  Bezzz, oh my God, My Baby

Baddest Guy Ever Liveth - by Olamide aka Baddo.

CNN - by 9ice
Blessed - by Flavour
Jagz Nation Vol 1 (Thy Nation Come) - by Jesse Jagz
Super Sun - by Bez.

I forgot to mention the majors -
Tuface / 2Face aka TuBaba :)
Darey. His albums are precious.
BankyW is "the king of R and B" except when he dabbles in other genres.
Darey is "the king of R and B" too, so he claims. He has tremendous classical musical talent but finds various ways to clothe it in pop so he can eat lol. His typical works range from soul to hiphop so I suppose he could be classed an R and B artist?
R and B has two kings here I guess :)
