Hear us out: Asake is the fashion icon of our generation, and this is a hill we’re willing to die on.
The lack of celebrity pictures from The Headies Awards 2022 has been very suspect. It took some GMail-account-protection level of commitment, and some bribery, but we finally have some.
What if we told you we don’t agree with #headiesaward2022’s Next Rated or Street Hop award? Here are some of our hot takes from the show.
You can’t tell us Asake wasn’t talking about sex when he sang, “Dem never see me coming” or “No dey waste time, me I wan fire bazooka.” We know these things.
If Tiwa Savage’s “Somebody’s Son” is a gospel song, then you can’t convince us that the other songs on this list aren’t gospel songs too. Shoutout to Tiwa “Cece Winans” Savage.
Remember the guy that sang “Hapuya Lyk That” back in 2007? Well, @Morachiofficial is back. And here’s what we also think about new music from @TiwaSavage, Zinoleesky, @aylodotsol and @DJ_TUNEZ in our #BumpThis playlist:
If there’s anything we’ve learnt from this Kizz Daniel drama, it’s that Nigerian artists need to fix up. If not, it’ll end in hot tears.
Who had a bigger song between Mavin Record’s Overloading and Mo Hits’ Pere? Let’s find out:
Before Jealous, Peru or Playboy, @fireboydml was just a regular guy living in Abeokuta. Here’s how he went from unknown singer to one of the biggest Afrobeats stars of our generation:
No one knows @youngskales music like Skales. He talks to us about his favourite Skales song, the song he didn’t want to drop, the collab he randomly made on a jet and the song he feels all of you are sleeping on.
From @Pheelz to @YoungJonn, almost all our favourite producers have become singers. Whose transition shocked you the most and why? Here’s our list:
Where two or more Nigerian aunties/mummies are gathered, just know that Kizz Daniel’s Buga is playing. @KizzDaniel, free our parents abeg.
What if we told you Banky W wasn’t the one who discovered Wizkid? Here’s all we learnt from Netflix’s new documentary, #AfrobeatsTheBackstory
If you were in secondary school when @davido dropped his first album or when @DONJAZZY launched @MAVINRECORDS with “Solar Plexus”, then please your wedding should not pass this year.
Ever wondered why Naira Marley has Nigerians in a chokehold? Hold on, let’s get into it.
Nigerian Gen Zs like to form hard guys, but like breakfast, heartbreak must reach everybody in the end. What’s your go to Nigerian breakup song?
Nigerians are talking about the songs that made them fall in love with Nigerian music. What song did the trick for you?
Looking to drop the next big song? Well, these are the artists you should be calling right now.
Don’t say we didn’t give you expo.
Wizkid’s Essence not getting a Record of the Year nomination is proof that the Grammys are still restrictive and backwards. But come to think of it, do you really need the Grammys to succeed as an artist?
From @asakemusik and @Olamide’s Omo Ope to @skiibii and @davido’s Baddest Boy (Remix), these are the biggest Nigerian songs to drop in the first quarter of 2022.
Who did we miss?
If you remember the lyrics to Weird MC’s Ijoya or Soty’s Malaria, we strongly advise that you start considering marriage because time is clearly not on your side.
Remember when 9ice said he’ll bring home a Grammy, and Burna Boy also said he’ll stay relevant like Blackberry charger? These lyrics did not age well at all.
We hope with these few points of ours, we will be able to convince and not confuse you that Lojay’s Monalisa is better than Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. Thank you.
From Asa and Tiwa Savage to Tems and Ayra Starr, we worked with @TurntableCharts to highlight some of the records our favourite women in music have broken over the years. Omo, we’re actually shooketh because of this list! Women >>>> #IWD2022
Fela might’ve started a movement with Afrobeat, but let’s not forget women like the Lijadu Sisters and Salawa Abeni who kicked ass back in the day. It’s officially Women’s History Month and we have no choice but to stan these iconic queens. Who did we miss?
Can you imagine a group with Blaqbonez, Ayra Starr and Rema? We can. These musicians sound good solo, but these combos would be mad! Which other musicians do you want to see in a group together?
Here's a rabbit hole of stories to lose yourself in:
