#BumpThis: Bella Alubo’s “Kolombi”, Larry Gaaga’s “Lekwa” & Mr Eazi’s “Call Waiting”

November 4, 2019

There’s so much new music being released that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to wade through the trash to find the gems. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a Friday series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.


Bella Alubo — “Kolombi” ft. Mr Eazi

Last Friday, the versatile Bella Alubo dropped her star-studded EP, Summer’s Over. While the entire project is overflowing with impressively written and confidently performed bops, it’s the Mr Eazi-assisted “Kolombi” that stands out the most. 

On the sultry, GuiltyBeatz-produced banger, Bella shines, singing about a partner she has immense sexual chemistry with. Mr Eazi is expectedly fantastic on the track, delivering what might just be his strongest guest work this year.

Larry Gaaga — “Lekwa” ft. Reekado Banks

One of the most unexpected hitmakers of the past two years, Larry Gaaga just dropped the soundtrack album for Living In Bondage: Breaking Free, and the catchiest track off the project is easily the Reekado Banks-aided “Lekwa” 

Larry Gaaga is known for bringing out the best in the artists he collaborates with, and “Lekwa” is certainly no different. Reekado Banks, who sings about how much he loves his woman, sounds absolutely incredible on the heartwarming banger.

Mr Eazi, King Promise — “Call Waiting” ft. Joey B

Mr Eazi has been on a hot streak all year, both as a solo and a featured act. For his latest effort, “Call Waiting”, he teams up with two Ghanaian heavyweights, King Promise and Joey B, and the result is another infectious gem from the banku star.

On the track, which is all about being in love, King Promise definitely emerges as the MVP. Granted, Mr Eazi is very impressive on the song, but King Promise elevates the entire thing. The only negative is that the talented Joey B isn’t given enough to do.
