Flavour x Trace Urban

Man of the moment Flavour gets interviewed by African Music Channel Trace about his career so far. Just after the release of his third album its a great time to catch up with this unique artist. He talks about his upbringing in the church, singing outside of restaurants and his ability to blend High Life with other genres.

D’banj x Oliver Twist

So the mega hit finally has a video, well an official one. The Don Jazzy produced song has been ruling the Uk airwaves and clubs get the visual treatment. There are a few things to look out for:

D’Banj is actually wearing clothes that Fagin would wear but not using his trusty Harmonica

The Oliver twist in this video is internet comedian Bricka Bricka aka white guy dancing to azonto

Subtle framing of Big Sean when the Nicki Gniash line is said.

Official Cameo list feature Eddie Kadi, Sneakbo, Hit Boy, Mike Dean, Pusha T and Kanye West as well. Oh and MANNIE FRESH.

This is the second collaboration between Mo Hits and Good Music, the first being Lift Off on the Watch The Throne album.

So Shifty Presents #Unfuckwithable

Every week the excellent So Shifty guys will bring you a performance that they deem #unf*ckwithable. You can give them suggestions on twitter just using that hashtag but ultimately they will decide. This week’s edition is a Naija vs Ghana collaboration R2Bees feat Wande Coal called Kiss Your Hand.

Speaking of Ghana So Shifty just dropped their Azonto mix named Watch Me Do My Azonto. You can also check out Fuse ODG doing the dance right here.

Flavour x Oyi (Feat. Tiwa Savage)

The man behind the second best dancehall album (IMO, Kingston story was the best) of last year is back with his latest visual and in fact remix of the OG. Flavour aka the king of high life is joined by one of Nigeria’s leading ladies Tiwa Savage on this sultry love song. One of the best things about naija pop is the humour in the lyrics, so god ahead and tell your loved one she is your “jellof rice oh”.

The video also resembles that ice part of Sean Paul Temperature video including the Willie Bounce dancing.

W4 x Kontrol

We rep Naija pretty hard over here at HDD but sometimes there are still things that fall through the cracks. My brother alerted me that this song had taken over the clubs in Nigeria after an initial collective raised eyebrow. It’s niche and slightly cheesy song but when you get over the fact that the chorus is effectively an ode of personal hygiene. I’ll let you decide if you like it but we will be doing the dance in clubs from now on.

Stylo G x Call Me a Naija ( Feat. Sneakbo)

As we said when this song first premièred the day before Nigerian independence day, the biggest name in Uk hip hop and Uk dancehall team up for this remix of Call Me a Yardie. This video, like the remix is nice mix of Naija and Yardie influences with overall UK flavour.
