I love Lagos By Olamide
Well I grew up in Mafoluku, and the Ikeja parts of Lagos, and boy it was fun! There is just something about Lagos that is energizing, the hustles are real and every town has a spirit of its own…
I love my Lagos and especially its local food. I love to eat Amala at Akenrele Surulere. I also love pounded yam from white house in Yaba. And then there is Ewa- Agonyi (beans) and Agege bread! Well what more- I love my Lagos.
The Island is cool, I love the galleria, they make this nice french crepes with a difference. I loved Shop Rite, even though malls were a new trend back then- it was kind of classy to act trendy so we all did. Continue reading
Feedback on the hottest video by the African diva, Tiwa Savage. Here is the good ( very ghetto) the bad(same old rhythm, dance able all the same) and the ugly (beautiful abuse of western fashion). According to a top music blog Oyadance, this is a highly anticipated video. And we cannot but agree, albeit reluctantly…
In particular I like the ghetto getup, I mean since the days of Jenifa, we haven’t had a strong depiction of an African ghetto queen and I just love Olamide with his raspy fuji tone (takes me right back to mushin olosha)!
But if you doubt me check out this video and see why we actually gave it a “Standing Oviation“with a stellar 4.5 review curtesy of Oyadance
So as you all know, I’ve been waiting patiently (more like impatiently) for one of the biggest Nollywood/ Hollywood blockbuster of the year. And just when I am starting to pace, I get some exclusive inside gist from African’s biggest screen-god of all times, RMD. My memories of RMD include A-list movies like Checkmate, Violation, and boy! Even as a child you could tell there was so much screen magic oozing out of him. Anyway, I am not the only one talking memories, watch Richard Mofe-Damijo (a.k.a RMD) in this interview open up about his childhood memories, experience, and biggest take away from this anticipated movie ‘Boxing Day’. The good thing is, Boxing day will be premiering late November (a few a weeks away I guess). This timing couldn’t be more perfect, its right before thanksgiving and just in time to set the tone for Christmas. I know- I hear jingle bells! Enjoy!
Just when you think the SKUKI brothers lack vivid romance, they show up with this smoking concotion, that reveals their lover-boy side in the new video ‘Forever’.
Shot in Victoria Island Lagos by Adasa Cookey of Squareball Media, The video tells the story of a couple’s humble beginning through good and bad- from elm to helm , it celebrates daily struggles that cant help but makes one relish the simple truth, that true love is truly for better for worse! and can stand against all odds even till the very end of time. Yes ajo ma lora wa gbo!

So for a long time, I have been a bystander in the world of music and I am consistently baffled at how quickly African music is merging with the West. We have heard from the beginning of the millennial that the world is a global village and with Facebook(maybe we believe this). We just underestimated the convergence of ideas, movement and thoughts, take for instance the #Alingo dance from Ghana that took Europe by storm. We completely overlooked the cross Atlantic movement of entertainment or did we? So when, #Drake dropped his newest material “Ojuelegba” featuring MC Skepta (his new best friend from London) and Naija’s very own #Wizkid – most people were like we didnt see it coming! Abeg how could we not, #Akon did “chop my money” with P-Square, #D’Banj remixed Mr Endowed with his lost but found found uncle #Snoop . So whats-up with #Ojuelegba? Picture the hottest vocals in the industry lending strong vocals to the stimulating Afropop beat and Drake doing what he know best- being Drake? Never mind here is what it sounds like(Click the link)- “Ojuelegba”
