I'm starting with Ajebutter22's What Happens In Lagos - the sound is beautiful so far (I'm only two tracks in, ok by the time I'm done with this post, I've heard the whole album once. It's really nice. )
I really badly liked his first album too - Anytime Soon.
Quiz. Who was 1 of the 1st ever to make house music pop in Nigeria? To do vibey sing rap? To make funny English/Yoruba songs? pic.twitter.com/E7ZdT1AJSt— BELLA 🦁👑 (@BellaAlubo) November 23, 2017
Next up (alphabetically) is BOJ's Magic album which I've sort of heard half of before and which is definitely very good as well.
Falz is super-popular because he is not only a solid rapper-musician but also a top-notch comedian-actor-personality. Ekiti kete!
I wish them
more collaborations and bigger accomplishments.
Let's form Voltron y'all.
There's still more:
Niniola's This Is Me. (Ekiti again. We rock.) I think she's doing a show like everyday from now till Christmas lol, her energy is incredible. #Maradona #AbsoluteStar #Workout
Check out #OfficialNiniola
Olamide's Lagos Na Wa.
Continuing his #YBNL group's tradition, here's the megasupermusicstar's annual stealthy album drop plus fabulous year-end concert. He's moving the live concert to the Stadium (Surulere) this year. (That's good - I don't deal in Eko Hotel events, to be honest. They're usually rowdy and just silly - they start arbitrarily late, many hours late, and I don't understand sit-down show-off concerts with red-carpets celebrities and worst of all things, they're indoors, and expensive, and probably better experienced on TV, and I would just not do that to myself.)
I don't ask anything of Olamide because he already completely did everything you could ask four years ago with album #3 (or 2, depending on if you count Rapsodi as #1, from before Yahoo Boy No Laptop and the ensuing fame) Baddest Guy Ever Liveth. So I get the Olamide/YBNL album every year, it's usually good. It may be that he's gone for a new sound with this one - I'm curious to hear it.
Aramide's Suitcase album and of A-Q's Blessed Forever, when free downloads or street sales become available for these two, I suppose. I know they both do very good work - Aramide's soul/alternative/guitar sound and A-Q's storyteller rap.
