#BumpThis: Mayorkun’s “Up To Something”, YCee’s “Wahala Dey” & Niniola’s “Omo Rapala”

November 1, 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.


Mayorkun — “Up To Something”

Since his breakout a few years ago, DMW superstar, Mayorkun hasn’t dropped a single bad song, and his latest effort “Up To Something” — a worthy follow-up to the Kizz Daniel-assisted “True” — continues his rather impressive winning streak.

On the SperoachBeatz-produced track, Mayorkun sings about appreciating the beauty of his lover. While the song treads well-worn territory — a woman who is seemingly unaware of her inherent beauty — the inventive production work and Mayorkun’s killer delivery help make it all feel fresh.

YCee — “Wahala Dey”

YCee is gearing up to drop his debut album, YCee vs Zaheer, and he’s been getting fans hyped with some solid singles. Following “Dakun” and “Mo Salah”, he’s now come through with the fantastic “Wahala Dey”, which he swears will be the last single before the project drops.

On the love song, YCee sings about a stunning woman that he’s willing to do anything to be with. Throughout the song, he makes multiple grand declarations, from swearing to maintain this energy for the entirety of their relationship, to promising to deal with anyone who messes with her.

Niniola — “Omo Rapala”

There aren’t many pairings in Nigerian music that are as effective as Niniola and Sarz. After blessing us with a ton of bangers over the past two years — from “Maradona” to “Bana” — they are back with another afro-house party-starter, “Omo Rapala”.

On the fantastically produced track, Niniola tries to convince listeners to forget everything that’s bothering them and just dance. With how infectious the single is, it’s an instruction that’s easy to follow. All that’s left now is a viral dance to go along with it.
