Both parents flocked to their own Instagram sites earlier this week to wish their daughter a happy birthday.
They’ve completed the picture by releasing this birthday song. Hopefully, this will become the new standard music at birthday parties.
7. Mr Eazi – Rotate
Mr Eazi, the Nigerian multihyphenate behind “Pour Me Water,” “Skin Tight” (with Efya), and “Leg Over,” plays with Afro-Reggae and delivers Rotate (freestyle).
This freestyle, created by OteeBeatz, is a nice Dancehall groove with a gorgeous tune and appealing lyrics.
Mr Eazi is a worldwide superstar from Nigeria and the creator of emPawa Africa, whereas Popcaan is a worldwide dancehall superstar from Jamaica who released his first two albums on Mixpak and is now continuing his dominance with OVO Sound.
They are advancing a long-simmering cross-continental debate between afro-pop and dancehall, which continues to provide diamonds. Mixpak label president Dre Skull–known for his songwriting and production work with Popcaan, Vybz Kartel, Drake, Wizkid, Jorja Smith, Davido, and others–unites this sensibility.
He recently collaborated with Popcaan, Jamaica’s favorite dancehall performer, and Dre Skull, an American record producer, on the new song “Sekkle & Bop.”
Dre Skull’s “Sekkle & Bop” is a bashment riddim that has always resonated on dancefloors throughout the world. It serves as the framework for Mr Eazi and Popcaan to take charge, with a soundsystem-ready bass end and an earworming flute melody. Both vocalists ride the riddim with their trademark charm and ease, easily switching flows that conjure up vintage dancehall classics, dominating dancers, and steadily increasing the energy.
8. Mizzle ft Oxlade – Smile for you
Mizzle, a Nigerian music producer and Empawa Records registered musician, collaborates with Oxlade on a new hit song named “Smile For You.”
The song is available for purchase and streaming on all digital retailers, and Mizzle collaborating with Oxlade was a brilliant decision since we can see that Oxlade usually adds this sort of flavor to songs to make them extremely attractive to the ears.
Anifowoshe Temitayo Micheal created the song. It’s his first single of the year, and it’s a follow-up to his previous hit, “The Beast Is Born.”
9. Chidinma – This Love
Chidinma Ekile, a gospel musician, has released a new video for her current hit “This Love.”
This comes only a few hours after Eezee Concepts music ministry and record label published the audio for this incredible song.
It’s her second video after joining the gospel music industry as a music minister with Eezee Concepts Global Ministry and Label.
“Jehovah Overdo,” her debut video, was published on the day she was ordained as a gospel music minister.
She maintains her delivery, as this is only the second of many to come from her, even as an EP in the gospel genre is in the works.
GR33NIX directed this video, which was recorded at Eezee Concepts’ studios in Lagos, Nigeria.
10. Justin Skye ft Rema – Twisted Fantasy
Justine Skye, an American singer, has released the official video for her track “Twisted Fantasy,” which features Rema from Nigeria.
The song was recorded in the United States, and Rema crossed another career milestone by being featured by an international talent.
This lovely melody was based on the themes of love and fantasy. It was a smash hit and ruled the charts for days after its debut.
However, even as Rema prepares to visit the United States, Justin Skye revives the song’s atmosphere by releasing the video for the song.
The duo’s connection in this video is astonishing and difficult to dispel, and the vocalist took the time to thank Rema for traveling to the United States.
This list of the top 10 Nigerian music includes new sounds released last week and compiled by Soundcity TV Africa.
