1. Love Me (feat. Adekunle Gold) by Aramide- Looking for the perfect wedding reception song for your first dance? Look no further! This lovely dovey Afro pop track is filled with all the sugar and fluff that any romantic occasion will need. Apart from the apt lyrics and brilliant production, Aramide’s vocal steals the show throughout the song. She hits all the notes required of her with finesse and effortlessness.
Let’s not forget about her duet partner, Mr. Gold himself. The chemistry between the two is the true jewel of this love anthem as they soar together on every intricate harmony. The song is a win win from start to finish.
2. Abeemo By Kenny K’ore – K’ore has a knack for creating productions that expertly merge the rawest Nigerian flavours with the most overt Western sounds. A classic example of this is the pulsating work of art that is Abeemo. Gospel at the core, more addicting by eachlisten; this track is as classic as they come.
3. One by Ed Sheeran – Everyone knows that no one writes slow burning, ice cream accompaniment ballads like Ed Sheeran. However, in case some people forget, Ed reminds us with this stripped back, vocal heavy track. Serving as the album opener of his 2014 release, X, this song was written in 2011 about his relationship at that time. Which reminds me, wasn’t Ed supposed to have dropped his latest E.P. already?
4. Jombo By Kiss Daniel – The production of this song, save for the edgy intro, has been over labored and the lyrics are less than a pint of original. As cliche as this type of song is in Nigeria, Kiss Daniel still manages to make it work somehow. It’s not a super stand offish track but it checks out all the boxes for one.
Please let’s endeavor to cultivate the habit of purchasing music. There is a whole team of people that is slied when we decide not to legally purchase a song or album.
