Welcome to another installment of 'Who Get Ear,' Pulse's weekly list of the 10 songs you need to play.
On Volume 83, Pulse featured MOJO, Sucee, Marvy, Street Billionaires and so forth. In an eventful that witnessed Nigeria at 59, the Headies nominations and M.I's reply to Vector, we feature Momentum SBWA, Hotyce, Ovye, Dunnie and so forth.
Here are the featured acts;
Momentum SBWA - Gbogbo
After a three-year hiatus, Nigerian rapper returns with this satire that focuses on socio-political critique. As it interlopes with Lagbaja's classic, 'Gbogbo Yin,' Momentum gives Nigeria another dose of reality check amidst 'celebration.'
NAJIU - GUAP

Mike World featuring Akuchi - Are You Down
A trap&b song about love.

Hotyce - For The Capital
Fresh off his Headies nomination for Best Rap Song, ace Nigerian rapper is back with this ode to his town, Abuja. At times, the song takes the form of a satire, at times, it's social commentary and sometimes, it's just sentimental poetry.
But then, you get bars.
DJ Cinch - Wanka
After inning the Artiste of the year and song of the year awards at the Kaduna Entertainment Awards and aperforming on stage at the 50th edition of the Afropolitan vibes, Kaduna's rave of the moment DJ CINCH drops his First official single for the year 2019.
The title Wanka is a Hausa slang which simply means Looking Fly and in the song DJ CINCH talks about coming into the industry with his own vibe and unique style.
Olu - Aiye
Olu documents life with a cinematic song and a short film. The short film is soundtracked with songs that feel like Tommee Proffitt creations.
Torna - Point of Correction
New 100 Crowns signee has released a freestyle in his signature Igbo lect.
