Talk – Falz
Falz’s new album, ‘Moral Instruction‘ is still generating a lot of conversation. One music video that was released as a teaser ahead of the full album release was ‘Talk’, and it soon began to trend, becoming one of the most popular music videos in January.
‘Talk’ is a conscious song that draws attention to the many issues which Nigeria has struggled with.
Oyi – 2Baba feat. Hi Idibia
2Baba’s ‘Oyi’ has a very beautiful beach-themed video, released on the very first day of the year.
It is one of 2baba’s newest projects. The rhythmic reggae-influenced piece is replete with proverbs, some of which are in his native Idoma and Pidgin English.
Promise – Simi & Adekinle Gold
‘Promise‘ is the first song by the duo after getting married earlier in the month. In the song they make their marriage vows to each other.
The video captures moments from their exclusive wedding and has sparked speculations of a possible album together.
God Alone – Tolu Odukoya-Ijogun
‘God Alone’ is a song of worship to God in spite of what life throws at us. It is done by Tolu, first daughter of Pastors Taiwo and Bimbo Odukoya of the Fountain of Life Church, Lagos.
Odukoya-Ijogun says about her latest song:
“Our facts or situations can’t change the God that He is. Our worship doesn’t make him God, He is God, and that’s why we worship. I pray this song gives you hope in your lowest season and points you to the reality of the God that we serve… All-Powerful! He has been faithful and will forever be faithful, so with or without a reason He is still deserving of our praises.”
ORI – Broda Shaggi
We are used to seeing Broda Shaggi in funny YouTube videos and skits, but ‘Ori’ shows the comedy king in a different light.
The very inspiring video is an encouragement to anyone who is grinding hard at their hustle with hopes for a better future.
Double-Double – Rudeboy feat. Phyno & Olamide
The music video for ‘Double Double’ was released as a follow up to the song released late last year. It is a song about love that cannot be stopped by haters, and is made even better with the appearance of Phyno and Olamide, whose verses add flavor to the song.
Not For Sale – INEC Ambassadors and All-stars
‘Not for Sale’ is an admonition against election violence. The song, produced by Cobhams Asuquo has an impressive ensemble of artistes, including 2Baba Idibia, MI Abaga, Teni, Chidinma Ekile, Waje, Umar M Shareef & Cobhams himself, passing their message in native dialects.
