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.
M.anifest — “Big Mad” ft. Simi
Following a rather memorable appearance on “Another Day” — a fan favourite off Burna Boy’s acclaimed album, African Giant — Ghanaian rapper, M.anifest teams up with another beloved Nigerian star, Simi, for his brand new single, “Big Mad”.
On the impressive track, M.anifest raps about trying to win back the love of a woman he admittedly treated pretty horribly. On the standout chorus and bridge, Simi steals the show as the scorned lover, adamantly refusing to accept his flimsy apology.
Chidinma — “Nobody’s Fool”
Imoh Umoren’s upcoming biopic, The Herbert Macaulay Affair is one of the most anticipated Nollywood movies of the year. To drum up even more anticipation for its impending October 25 release, Umoren has shared the official soundtrack, Chidinma’s “Nobody’s Fool”.
On the powerful track, Chidinma sings about fighting for her sanity, as she refuses to lose herself to a toxic situation. One of the most accomplished vocalists in Nigeria, Chidinma’s seemingly limitless voice is a perfect match for the beautifully cinematic song.
