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.
Starboy entertainment in the building! Wizkid’s crew are really making a name for themselves and boy does this go. You might remember there last tune Caro, which still runs the clubs.
We missed this one when it first came out, but producer Wizzypro pulls together a good group of singers on this song. The highlight is Patoranking who nails it. This might be my favourite verse of the year. You do have to get through some sub Wale type stuff before. If you haven’t heard Alubarika yet i suggest you do.
