Since the top of the year, Lady Donli has released standout singles, including the track "Suffer Suffer." She dropped the music video for "Cash" in April, and released her well-received debut album Enjoy Your Life in August—one of the standout Nigerian albums of 2019. Her song 'Corner' feat. VanJess & The Cavemen made it onto OkayAfrica's list of the 20 best Nigerian songs of 2019.

Davido dropped his sophomore album A Good Time last month, and recently shared the music video for the track "Sweet In the Middle."

OkayAfrica spoke with both artists earlier this month, and asked them to share their memories of the last decade in Nigerian music. "Now with the streaming era it's becoming even more visible, the possibilities are endless," said Lady Donli. "However, I still think there's a whole lot of work to be done, but right now, [I think] this is a good starting point."

Take a look back at the past decade in Aforbeats, and listen to "Cash (Remix)" below.

Reekado Banks Recalls The Carnage of The #EndSARS Protests In Single 'Ozumba Mbadiwe'

The Nigerian singer pays his respects to those lost during last year's #EndSARS protests.

Nigerian singer and songwriter Reekado Banks is back with a track that is as socially important as it is a banger. It seems fitting for the singer's first solo release of the year to be a tribute to his fellow countrypeople fighting for a country that they all wish to live in. The 27-year-old Afrobeats crooner has returned with endearing track 'Ozumba Mbadiwe', honoring the one-year anniversary of the #EndSARS protests that saw the Nigerian government authorize an onslaught of attacks on Nigerian citizens for their anti-government demonstrations.

The protests took the world by storm, additionally because the Nigerian government insists that none of the police brutality happened. In an attempt to gaslight the globe, Nigerian officials have come out to hoards to deny any and all accusations of unlawfully killing peaceful protesters. Banks mentions the absurd denials in the track, singing "October 20, 2020 something happened with the government, they think say we forget," in the second verse. Reekado's reflective lyrics blend smoothly and are supported by the upbeat, effortless Afrobeat rhythm.

In another reflective shoutout to his home, 'Ozumba Mbadiwe' is named after a popular expressway on Lagos Island that leads to the infamous Lekki Toll Gate where protesters were shot at, traumatized, and murdered. Although packed with conscious references, the P.Priime produced track is a perfect amalgamation of the talents that Reekado Banks has to offer; a wispy opening verse, a hook to kill, and an ethereal aura to mark this as a song as a hit. On "Ozumba Mbadiwe," all the elements align for Reekado's signature unsinkable sound to take flight.
