The Mavins are very interesting in the sense that teaming up together makes the weaker members bigger and have a bigger platform. If you look at it as a football team with Don Jazzy the manager, Tiwa the star player and the others a mixture of veterans and Newbies. Adaboi continues where Dorobucci left off, vibey, highlifey and fun. Something you can play and your gran would skank to. If your Gran doesn’t skank we feel bad for you.

Our fave indigenous Naija rapper is back with a big budget video for his track Nme Nme. The way they built him up as the go to guy has been very impressive.
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.
