Burna Boy x Check & Balance

Burna-Boy-Check-and-Balance-BellaNaija-600x600

 
Burna Boy’s last offering Don Gorgon wasn’t really doing it for us here at HDD HQ but Check & Balance is one we can get in to. Burna continues his dancehall flow on this one and could almost be his take on Bam Bam riddim.

Kcee x Ogaranya feat Davido

Kcee and Davido team up for Ogaranya and the video is one of the most vibrant afropop videos out at the moment. Directed by Godfather (who is behind a lot of D’banj videos) the video sees the pair stunting in their best trad attire complete with Nigerian coral. Keep your eyes peeled for the shot with the doves!

Wande Coal x Baby Hello

The video for Wande Cole’s Baby Hello sees Yemi Alade as the video girl in what looks to us like Naija’s 2014 take on Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl video. Rotate is still getting a lot of love from us but this one is following in its footsteps.

Hipsters Don’t Dance x August

HDD_AUG14_2WEB

We are back at The Shacklewell Arms this Saturday August 2nd. You can find us in the back room aka the dancehall recreating the feeling of Carnival in the middle of Dalston. On the night we will have resident Murlo alongside HDD head honchos Kazabon & Hootie Who.

Imagine the house party in Sean Paul’s Get Busy but without the complaining Grandpa. Rum, batty riders, flags and more in our own World Carnival dance. We are on the road to carnival, you don’t want to miss out! Fete hard or go home!!! More info here.

Mavins x Dorobucci


Remember when rap videos had bigger budgets? Like Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy for Life. Imagine that except in South Africa and with 900 different artists on 1 song. This Don Jazzy produced gem has Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, Dr SID, D’Prince, Reekado Banks, Korede Bello, Di’Ja. Tiwa kills her part, it might be my fave thing she has ever done. This is probably the biggest song in Nigeria right now as its great at any function. Your granny could dance to this, your 3 year old nephew as well.
