Monday, November 1, 2010


It clearly looks like the year will go out with a big bang (musically speaking), just looking at all the albums that have been released since October and those that will hit stores before the year runs out is enough to make any naija music aficionado go crazy with joy. It’s not like 2010 has been terrible but it hasn’t been too good either. There is no hit song out there that we can proudly point to neither do we have any hot album that is worth putting on repeat.
Plus one’s Commercial Class is the closest you can come to a hot album and Tuface’s only me is the only song I can listen to repeatedly right now. It is really poor from any angle you look at it; Just take a look at all the artistes who already had albums out before the ember months rolled in. Timaya, Jesse Jagz, Eedris, Eldee, C-mion, House of Gingah, Dr Sid, Modenine, Maye Hunta, Duncan Mighty, Side one,  just to name a few all failed to score a nationwide hit. Actually I am not one to dwell on the past so I am staring at the present and looking into the future to see what we have in stock.
I am YQ –YQ
 Boyz are not Smiling – Terry da Rapman
Beautiful Imperfection – Asa
Me, Myself and Eyes – Omotola
Versus – 9ice
Untitled – Ruggedman
Made in Heaven – Tony Tetuila
Oga Boss – Illbliss
Mr Endowed – D’banj
One in a Million – Solidstar
The State of Surprise – Vector
I am William – 2 shotz
Untitled – P square
Super C Season – Naeto C
End of Discussion –Dat Nigga Raw
Names of Noise Makers – Kelly Hansome
Sasha Speaks – Sasha
Reconfigurated - Durella
Words ain’t enough – Waje
Franchise Celebrity – Mo cheddah
My Name is Essien – Freestyle
The Alliance – Ikechukwu
Broken Silence – Weird MC
Untitled – Darey art Alade
Frankly speaking, not all of these albums will see the light of day and of those that do, not all will be worth the wait. I hate to admit it but a P square album will be refreshing, although anything that sounds dangerous will not be tolerated. Freestyle and 2shotz will definitely come out with something hot, and Asa’s Beautiful Imperfection will most likely end up being a classic. I am going to resist the urge to talk about everybody on that list and wait to see if some of them can surprise me. Enjoy the ember music is what I always say.
