January 2021 started on a good note for Nigerian artistes, as they dropped some really nice jams.
There are some new kids on the block, while the old faces are keeping pace with quality songs.
Here are KemiFilani’s best five for the first month of the year:
WizKid ‘Ginger’ ft. Burna Boy
Wizkid dropped “Ginger” featuring Burna Boy. The two Nigerian heavyweights keep things stylish as always in the new striking new Meji Alabi-directed music video.
Reekado Banks & Tiwa Savage – Speak To Me
Speak To Me by Reekado Banks and Tiwa Savage from the EP, Off The Record, Directed by Adasa Cookey and Starring Bright O and Wat…
Femi Kuti – As We Struggle Everyday
Femi Kuti shares his new single, “As We Struggle Everyday,” the latest drop from the upcoming double album Legacy +, a joint endeavor with his son Made Kuti. It is a politically-charged afrobeat tune about people having the voting power to hold their ‘leaders’ accountable, but often failing to do so.
Ayra Starr – Away
Ayra Starr is the newest face on Don Jazzy-owned Mavin Records. The 19-year-old has released her self-titled debut EP, starting with head bopper “Away.” The song is a pulsating, hip-grinding track that re-explores what typically makes up a break-up song.
Joeboy – Lonely
Joeboy dropped the visuals for his latest track “Lonely”. The new song features on his upcoming debut album Somewhere Between Beauty & Magic. The music video, which was shot in Lagos by Nigerian director, Adetula “KingTula” Adebowale, tells this story well with the couple eventually linking up and giving the audience a generally happy ending.
