In April 2021, we got more great music from artistes old and new.
As the year races into its second half, Nigerian stars are not relenting both in quality and quantity.
There are some new kids showing up to make a name for themselves, while the ‘veterans’ are keeping pace with nice songs.
Here are KemiFilani’s best five from April in no particular order:
- Nathaniel Bassey – Hallelujah Challenge Praise Medley
Foremost gospel minister, Nathaniel Bassey, has released a new offering titled “Hallelujah Challenge Praise Medley”.
It is from his latest full-length project, “Hallelujah Again”.
The 14 minutes and 21-second long medley feature a collection of praise songs used frequently in Nathaniel’s Hallelujah Challenge sessions.
- Omawumi – Bulls**t
Omawumi is back on our radar with a new single titled “Bulls**t“.
“Bulls**t” is a very melodic thought-provoking song that vocalises the struggles and plights of everyone.
This song is the first single from Omawumi’s fifth studio album which is set to be released later in the year.
- Rema – Bounce
For the first time since signing to the label in 2019, Rema works with the labels godfather, Don Jazzy.
The Mavin head huncho switches things up and delivers a menacing, fast-paced production, unlike anything we’ve heard from him before.
- Tim Godfrey feat. Pastor Adeboye & Tope Alabi – Iyanu a Sele
Tim Godfrey always drops awesome gospel songs. And his new work, “Iyanu a Sele” is not different!
Godfrey features Pastor E.A. Adeboye and Tope Alabi on what is a song of hope and assurance in the might and power of God.
It is the second song off the “Already Won” album.
- Masterkraft & Phyno – Egbon
Masterkraft has dropped the audio for ‘Egbon’. It his highly anticipated song with Phyno.
In the less than four-minute song, the duo eulogise themselves in Igbo language while painting a picture of successful and independent men.

Uduak Frank Akpan, the suspect in the murder of a job seeker, Iniubong Umoren, has claimed he killed her with a stabilizer.
He stated this today, when the Akwa Ibom State Police Command paraded him before journalists.
According to the state Police Commissioner, Andrew Amiengheme, Akpan was paraded today to dispel the rumour that he had committed suicide in police custody.
While fielding questions from journalists, the suspect revealed that he invited Umoren over for a fake job and then demanded to have sex with her.
According to him, she agreed to his demand but became furious which made her hit him on the head with a stabiliser, which he in turn used on her before she died.
Nigerian Singer Adekunle Gold has taken to social Media to lament about being married after his wife Simisola Ogunleye rocked his new shirt.
Simi had taken to her Instagram page to share photos of herself rocking a shirt and short as she gushed over her beauty.
Simi also narrates how her nails pulled off, but she acted unbothered because she was given birth without artificial nails.
She wrote: how can you be this fine without sharing your testimony. also my nails are so f*ked up. pulled out four of em yesterday, but if anybody ask me, i'ma say i was born this way,
