This one is just to celebrate Nigerian hiphop's online presence,for all those who are repping the green white green on the worldwide web.i have put together the top 5ive websites holding it down for naija hiphop online.there is no order to my list so if you are on number 1,2 or 3 don't get carried away it means nothing,what really matters is that you made it into the top 5.here we go
Duduradio has been here for so long and to everyone's suprise is still here.what the folks over there do mainly is stream music.they have a vast library containing almost all albums released by every major Nigerian artist you can think of in the last couple of years.if you want to listen to any Nigerian album especially past albums that cannot be found elsewhere.
-Massive collection of music albums across all genres.
-Infrequent updating of library.
I know that most people wouldn't agree with me on this one but this website is actually good in exposing upcoming artistes and they do come up with the occassional gem(music videos,downloads & news) every now and then.to be frank,they are not really good in anything in particular.all they do is a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
-Not user friendly(site navigation is poor)
This website is a true hiphop website.They specialise in breaking new artistes,dropping exclusives & informative features.they are also quite good with entertainment news & gists.on this site,you will definitely hear music you can't find anywhere else & watch videos that you will never see anywhere else again.
-Poor album reviews
bellanaija cannot be totally classified as an hip hop website as they run the entire entertainment gammut from fashion,movies,tv to showbiz but they do offer entertainment news,music videos and audio.their events coverage is first class so you get pictures from awards,concerts,reality shows e.t.c
-First class events coverage.
-Entertainment gist/showbiz gossip.
-Jack of all trade,master of none.
-No album reviews
Now this is a purely hip hop site as the name implies.here you get album previews & reviews,interviews,news,exclusives,videos e.t.c they even offer free downloads.actually iam tempted to say this is the best Nigerian hiphop website around but their album reviews are way below expectations plus i don't want anybody catching feelings.
-current and consistent
-Unreliable album reviews
