Every month, Nigerian music artists release new songs in hopes of momentarily owning the hearts and ears of current and new fans amidst a barrage of new Nigerian releases.
Here’s a list of the latest songs from Nigeria this month for your viewing and listening pleasure.
Rema "Red Potion"
Mavin Records superstar signee, Rema, dropped his 5-track EP called Ravage, and has once again captivated the hearts of his fans, the Ravers. "Red Potion," the fifth track on the EP, delves deep into Rema's sexual fantasies and his desire to be with a woman who can fulfill his needs. Just as its title implies, the track can leave fans wondering if Rema's desire to be with the lady of his dreams is actually a reality or imagination, which might have been fueled by a "potion."
Blaqbonez "NYEM EGO" feat. Jeriq
Just as Blaqbonez has been saying for weeks, "Emeka Must Shine," and undeniably so, Emeka is shining in this Igbo drum-infused track, "Nyem Ego." Featuring Jeriq the Hussla, known for his relentless determination to be wealthy, this collaboration was a no-brainer. "Nyem Ego" means "Give Me Money," and we're not only shown the duo's determination to make money but also their business-oriented approach, with no time for lengthy conversations that won't yield a positive outcome. Blaqbonez also showcases his prayerful side, praying for his enemies to never catch up with him, and emphasizes why some success stories are better left unsaid.
Basketmouth, BOJ, Duncan Mighty ”Link Up”
Multi-talented Nigerian comedian and musician, Basketmouth, returns with a masterpiece record titled "Link Up," featuring the intriguing musical abilities of top-tier English-Nigerian musician, BOJ, alongside Duncan Mighty, a well-known Nigerian singer-songwriter. This composition is drawn from his latest project, the Uburu EP. The track tells a love story beautifully narrated by Duncan Mighty and BOJ, who use their soothing voices to discuss the ladies they have been talking to and the anticipation of finally meeting in person. In the end, this unique composition is a blockbuster track.
All Gen-Z baddies, it's time to mark your calendars with Brazy's new release, "OMG." This song is a perfect blend of alternative and Jersey Club music, with a tempo ranging from 130 to 140 BPM. The song is a feel-good track with a clear message that Brazy isn't slowing down in creating versatile and carefree songs for those who want to listen.
Tems "Me & U"
After being in hermit mode for years, fans can now understand why Tems took her time to release her track. As she mentioned in interviews, "Me & U" is a song that connects her to her relationship with God, more like a reassurance that with God, she has everything she needs. However, the song can fit the shoes of a love song that lovebirds won't overlook. Whichever message you take from listening to this song, one thing is certain: Tems poured her heart into this single, making it an infectious and calming track to listen to at any time.
ODUMODUBLVCK, Bloody Civilian, Wale "BLOOD ON THE DANCE FLOOR"
ODUMODUBLVCK is constantly at the forefront of redefining Nigerian Rap, which might have been said to have gone into the doldrums. This single possesses qualities that are likely to evoke a strong sense of exhilaration and enjoyment. The artists actively sought the captivating musical abilities of the renowned Nigerian singer-songwriter, Bloody Civilian, and the versatile American rapper, singer-songwriter, and record producer, Wale, to produce a distinct and well-defined auditory experience.
Skiibii, Seyi Vibez, Teni "CBN" feat. Reekado Banks & Mayorkun
A song that showcases the versatile artistry of these acts, "CBN" is very well executed. Figuratively, CBN (Central Bank of Nigeria) in this single represents endless cash flow. These four artists share their plans and provide insight into their lifestyles, which are funded by an endless cash flow from their point of view.
LADIPOE, Chocobantis "Shut It Down"
"Takes one song for the lifestyle to change," and undeniably so, Ladipoe has proven countless times that his dedication to his craft has brought him the success and recognition he enjoys today. In this track, Ladipoe exhibits his confidence in his talent and hard work, declaring that he's ready to "shut it down" while giving a hint of what to expect next from him—an album.
Shallipopi "Things On Things"
Making a grand entry into the music industry in 2023, Shallipopi is an artist whose self-confidence remains unfiltered. Following other hit records like "Elon Musk," "Ex Convict," and "Obapluto." "Things on Things" serves as a stern warning to online bullies who try to undermine his efforts in his craft and highlights the importance of evidence in defending against criticisms.
BOJ, Ajebutter22 "Rora"
Maintaining their years-long friendship, the duo collaborated on a new single, "Rora." This song reflects their willingness to support and be the best confidants for the lady they cherish the most. A notable line from the song summarizes the track: "I give her love, I give her money, and I give her comfort, and I still put 'jara' on top."
