“TMP Offisial” or “TMP” was born on August 30, in Lagos, Nigeria. TMP, whose full name is “Ogunbanwo Olayemi”, was born into a family that loves music and was given full support by his family when he made his intentions known that he wanted to venture into music in his early life, known radically amongst family members as a studio brat that terrorized the Ikorodu axis of Lagos State (**jokingly).

Nigerian singer, Wizkid was recently interviewed on ThisDay Style and he spoke about responding to controversies and his plans for Valentine.

Wizkid

Speaking in a recent interview with ThisDay Style which surfaced online on the 7th of February 2021, Wizkid was asked about how he manages controversies and not seemed fazed by it. Also, he was asked how easy it is to stay quiet and not respond nor explain himself. Wizkid replied;

“It’s very easy. Only a stupid man will go around trying to prove a point to the world and even at that, you’ll find that you can’t please everyone, that you cannot live off of people’s opinions. I think once you understand yourself and your true essence, nothing will faze you, people’s opinions won’t faze you. I’m just more of a private person, and I handle situations in that manner”

Wizkid was further asked about his plans for … Read the rest

The 21 Artists to watch: A 2021 Prediction

The Nigerian music industry we have all grown to know and love is in the actual sense yet a millennial and is still a way from being three decades old. In that time, it has grown from producing local entertainers to global megastars. The rate at which these stars are produced is next to exponential as seen in the previous year which had quite a handful of breakout acts such as Bella Shmurda, Omah Lay, Bad Boy Timz, Zinoleesky, among others. And as a result of this lucrative standing of our homegrown music industry and its rapid incline, our sounds now enjoy global attention which is only bound to multiply. In that light, here are 21 artists to watch in the year 2021 in alphabetical order:

On the 5th of February, Tiwatope Savage, or Tiwa Savage, fondly referred to as the African Bad Gyal, turned a year older. While her Wikipedia page says she’s now a year and fourty years old, evidence seems to show that she hasn’t aged a day since she first broke out on our screens almost a decade ago with the delightfully spicy Afropop number, Kele Kele Love where she introduced herself as a woman not to be toyed with.

In honour of the African Bad Gal, Tiwa Savage, we’ve taken a walk down memory lane to look at 9 times she established herself as a force to be reckoned with in the music industry: 

1. Her Breakout Single

Back in 2013, the Nigerian music industry was just beginning to build up serious speed and the pioneers we now have of the globally enjoyed afropop were only just Read the rest

The Compozers – Feel Right

Setting the precedent for what’s to come, the Afrobeat vibe combined with elements of Funk prove their innate musicality, exemplifying their unique flair for contemporary compositions.

Today the 5th of February marks the birthday of one of the voices of the new wave of Nigerian music that’s taking the industry past the catchall term afrobeats, Fireboy DML is the artiste getting balloons as he turns the quarter of a century. Born Ademola Adefolahan, he came into the scene with the irresistible high-life infused summer number, Jealous in early 2019 and latched onto our playlists and hearts but not much is known about the YBNL golden boy. 

So in honour of Fireboy DML’s birthday, here are some interesting facts about him to demystify his persona: 

1. Background and childhood

A native of Abeokuta, Ogun state, Fireboy makes no secret of the fact that he’s a recluse who loves to be by himself and this is because he’s always been a natural hermit. Born to a family of 5 and three boys which he is the firstborn of, Read the rest

January’s Best Afrobeats Songs: Ayra Starr, Sarkodie, Not3s, Bella Shmurda, Yung L

Considering how packed the final few weeks of 2020 was, it came as little surprise that January started off slow. Many artists took the opportunity to roll out videos for singles released in November and December, and only started dropping fresh jams by mid-month. Regardless, the month ended strong with potential hits from some of our faves.

 

Sarkodie ft. Moelogo – Come Back

A signature hip-hop tune with a melodic hook from Sarkodie and Moelogo. The Ghanaian rapper has locked in this formula.
