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!

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.
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.
Song of the Summer alert. Timaya rides this simple afropop meets 90′s dancehall vibe in proper singjay style. The xylophone touches are what make you keep coming back to this gem.
God knows what exactly DJ Hazan did apart from download Santa Barbara by Taxi Gang (my fave cut on the Bam Bam riddim) and get Patoranking to sing (parts of this really feel like it is a freestyle) over it (maybe he is Nigeria’s first DJ Khaled?). I digress, the important thing is that Patoranking kills it, crooning in the streets whilst being dressed like an acquaintance of ours, who styled his last video.
