#BumpThis: Terri’s “Non-Stop”

July 17, 2019

There’s so much music out there that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to stay up with their favourite artists or what’s new and hot right now. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a daily series that features the one song you need to listen to, every day. Don’t say we never did anything for you.


Over the last year or so, Terri has gradually settled into his role as the Robin to Afropop’s Batman. That position has come to mean many things. Like our favourite DC characters, Nigerian musicians who take on the role of mentors for the talent they’ve discovered don’t pass on the baton. The best they can often offer is a platform, or maybe some stylistic influence.

Since Wizkid found him via a viral remake of one of his popular hits, Terri has gradually refined his act. Yet one can’t help but taste some familiar if undesirable flavours from his mentor’s kitchen. As one culture commentator recently wrote, Terri has repeatedly been the victim of bad timing and inconsistency with his releases. If you’re wondering where it comes from, Wizkid has been postponed the release of his new single “Joro” four times and counting.

The latest timing mishap is what has caused “Nonstop”, Terri’s latest single to get lost in the tidal wave of Beyonce’s “The Lion King: The Gift”. But the kid is nothing if not a potential Afropop hitmaker and on his newest release, all the familiar signs are reinforced.

He glides in rhythm with a delightfully consistent beat by producer, KillerTunes who has crafted some of the biggest songs of 2019. Ceeza Milli provides additional vocals as Terri takes on tropes about living life to the fullest and showing his women the good life.

If Terri will manage to prove anything with “Nonstop”, it is that he’s no flash in the pan. His people just need to get their act together.
