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.

WurlD — “Ghost Town”

It’s been less than a month since WurlD released the party-starting “Love Nobody”, his first single of 2020, and he is already back with a brand new track, the even better “Ghost Town”.

On the track, WurlD sings about fighting to overcome his struggles. While Spax’s production work is astonishing, it’s WurlD’s incredible voice that truly makes “Ghost Town” soar.

Tekno — “Sudden”

Following the recent release of “Kata”, one of Tekno’s strongest and most infectious love songs in a while, the afropop star is back with a socio-political track, “Sudden”.

Produced by Spax, “Sudden” finds Tekno calling out our greedy and ineffectual leaders. It’s another solid track from the singer, reaffirming that he has truly gotten his groove back.

D-Truce, 3rty & TylerRiddim — “Omoge”

D-Truce, one of the most exciting young rappers working today, continues to impress on everything he does. His latest effort, “Omoge”, done in collaboration with 3rty and TylerRiddim, is no exception.

On the stunningly produced track, which focuses on the ups and downs of love, all three stars deliver. While D-Truce is expectedly fantastic, it’s 3rty that ends up leaving the strongest impression.
