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.

Fireboy DML — “ELI”

Following the success of his first single of 2020, the impressive “New York City Girl”, Fireboy DML is back with the even stronger “ELI” — an infectious reminder of the rising star’s enviable range. 

Kida Kudz — “Buga” ft. Falz & Joey B

Kida Kudz is one of the most consistent newcomers in the game, both in terms of quantity and quality. With his latest effort, “Buga”, featuring Falz and Joey B, he’s added another banger to his discography.

Pop Smoke — “Enjoy Yourself” ft. Burna Boy

Remixes are rarely as good as the original, but Burna Boy didn’t get the memo. On the remix of Pop Smoke’s “Enjoy Yourself” — off the deluxe version of his posthumous album — the afro-fusion star elevates the song. 

Tolani — “Badman”

While Tolani seems incapable of making a bad song, her latest single, “Badman” is all about her affinity for bad men. It’s another solid track from the fantastic singer, proving yet again that she deserves our attention.
