This isn’t as good as it could be but its official. Let that sink in for a sec…. One of our fave R and B artists (when he isnt being shoved into edm festival type stuff) got 3 of Africa’s finest to be on a comissioned remix.

As 2013 comes to a close, it’s time for our Top 20 tunes of the year. This year more than others we feel that there is a growing scene with various radio shows, labels and DJ’s playing more and more of the music we love. There has been a lot more attention payed towards Africa, Soca finally getting more shine and Dancehall moving more and more into the mainstream. There may have not been a big crossover song but instead there has been many a song which has caught the imagination of the public. We have certainly seen a shift in our raves where people are demanding we play stuff that a few years ago they would have looked a bit lost at. Let’s hope that this momentum continues with more and more exposure to the World Carnival sound. This list has been based on the tunes that we have been playing out at our numerous raves, listening to at HDD Headquarters and generally being the best ones out this year.

Ice Prince teams up with French Montana for this collab called I Swear. There isnt much else to say except i hope to see more and more of these collaborations between these African artists. FYI love how French reps his african heritage better than the majority of other rappers out there. Will he ever get props for it? Nah, he’s just a swag rapper. So shout out French! Rep your heritage.
This is great, like song of the year great. Burna’s verse is my favourite of the year in any genre. Yung L gruff voice makes me laugh every time i hear it. Chopstix beat is great. The chorus is great. It’s great. Here is a basic transciption of Burna’s verse from myself and Kazabon.
Gimme me light and spliff no one can come near
when i light it up it you see smoke in the air nothing can compare
Light the candle up like its my brithday
Bare girl wine on me like im thristy
Shelly-Anne is light skinned and curvy
Screaming mercy because i fuck her in the worst way
She say Gidi Gidi Gidi like a marathon
She dont want kids but she’s going to swallow some
boom shoot like i have a gun
soon as me commando
She make me scream Hey Spin me my song dj
Dj nah dey carry replay
no be today i tell you my guy dont dey
all my Dem dj play their part
sincerely thanking you from my heart
Control me when the song once start
you are pass me the song now.
As we gear up to xmas time it’s only natural that people start thinking of xmas tunes. You know Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Phil Spector’s christmas lp (the best xmas lp ever) songs that all evoke cold, snow and chestnuts on an open fire. But what about Nigeria, over there it’s mid summer. It’s 35c and the unrelenting heat means that you are at the mercy of air conditioning, hardly the time to be singing Let It Snow. So step forward Tunde Ednut with a host of Nigeria’s best MC’s Ice Prince, JJC, Lynxxx and Davido to crate a fast paced almost soca Christmas song. The video is what christmas is like in Naij, booze, sun and sea.
