#BumpThis: DMW’s “Mafa Mafa” & Oxlade’s “Weakness”

March 27, 2020

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.


DMW — “Mafa Mafa” ft. Davido, The Flowolf, Peruzzi & Dremo

At least once a year, Davido’s star-making label, DMW assembles a bunch of its strongest players to deliver a definitive banger. For 2020, that track is the Nakademus-produced “Mafa Mafa”.

On party-starter, which sounds like it could be a Naira Marley hit, everyone involved comes correct. While Davido surprises by impressively switching up his flow, it’s Dremo that ends up stealing the entire show.

Oxlade — “Weakness”

Oxlade, a rising star seemingly incapable of dropping a mediocre track, just released his debut project, Oxygen. While all its 6 tracks are expectedly stellar, the obvious standout is definitely “Weakness”.

On the song, Oxlade sings about a blatantly toxic relationship. While he admits to knowing that the object of his affections is no good for him, he also shows no interest in leaving.
