Pick of the week: DOTTI - Bilisi
Moment of the week: Hook on 'Bilisi' by DOTTI
DOTTI - Bilisi
Off his EP, Songs In Isolation is this beautiful folk number about the unsavoury parts of life - struggles, depression and strife - inspired by the upheaval around COVID-19. With a hook that highlights the power of God, Dotti prays to God in Yoruba with a voice drenched in pain to deliver his power from bad occurrences.
BizzOnTheTrack - Kpa
On Bisi Kuti [Deluxe], his fifth body of work in just under three years, BizzOnTheTrack dreams aloud for his friends and himself.
Sheyi - Stronger
In the thick of the problems confronting the world, a Nigerian based in London delivers words of encouragement to the world regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation. With a wide-ranging soprano similar to Skunk Anansie lead, Skin's, Sheyi shines on a sentimental ballad.
Illgod & Xplain D Don featuring Timi Kei - Verbs and Pronouns
Off Incipit Vita Nova their collaborative 10-track album, Illgod and Xplain D Don feature ace Port Harcourt rapper, Timi Kei on a tale of self-pride and subtle braggadocio.
MOJO - Chiwawa
Talented Nigerian rapper and the maker of 2018's buzz-worthy single, 'Chop Life Crew' is back with his new single titled, 'Chiwawa' - a twisted way of saying, 'Chihuahua,' the dog breed.
Nigel The Rebel - LANDR
Abuja-based rapper, Nigel The Rebel takes his characteristically experimental sound into the realms of rap-suited-Afro-pop as he celebrates his own ability.
Dwayne Momodu - Sinzu Rhythm
From the staple of Abuja-based music producer is this voiceless beat for you to lose your mind. If you will use it, please contact him.
Zilla Oaks featuring Dremo and Prettyboy D-O - Ogini
In Igbo, 'Ogini' means 'What is the matter?' But forget that for a minute and focus on the hook and beat on this monstrous sound.
Phaemous - How You Gon Listen To This Voice and Not Trip
Ladies and gentlemen, that title might be vanity, braggadocio, self-obsession and narcisissm rolled in one, but the music is too good. It's an Afro&B track that aptly documents the talking stage.
Bolu Ajibade featuring Buju - Old Soldier
The mixing of this song might have deserved a little more, but the song is still good enough to make this list.
