#BumpThis: Rema’s “Woman” & NSG’s “Lupita”

July 3, 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.


Rema — “Woman”

Rema was one of 2019’s greatest discoveries, and with every new single he’s put out since then, the pint-sized star proves his rise to superstardom was no fluke. His latest effort, the instantly likeable “Woman” is no different. 

Seemingly capable of tackling any genre, from trap to afropop, “Woman” finds Rema gliding atop a killer afro-house beat. Even when his lyrics feel all over the place, his boundless charisma makes it all work.

NSG — “Lupita”

It’s never too late to discover a gem. That’s exactly how I felt when I heard NSG’s fantastic “Lupita” (weeks after its release). A standout off the afro-bashment group’s solid mixtape, Roots, the track feels like an instant classic.

Sampling Foxy Brown’s “Get Me Home”, the breezy song finds the group extolling the beauty of black women, with cheeky references to stunning dark-skinned stars like the titular Lupita Nyong’o and Eva Opio.
