#ThrowbackThursday: You No Dey Sleep by PITA

This throwback goes all the way to 2010, to my best song by Pita. I know everyone is exceedingly satisfied with Pita’s  ‘You Light Up My World’, but ‘You No Dey Sleep’ is my favourite ‘Pita Jam’, and I’m going to tell you all the things I love about it! Immediately…

#SmokingHotSaturday! #Music Review: You Are The Reason by Mairo Ese

    Phenomenal, resonating and mind blowing are the words to describe this ballad of refined worship. Pure, undiluted and spirit filling, I can’t get enough! I’m simply drawn into deeper levels of worship, and it’s amazing how a simple chorus can take you to places you never dreamed. I…

This bubbly piece is a plethora of genres including electronic dance and house music, embellished with African percussive instruments, from the okwa to the bells and to the mechanical claps! Okey Sokay employs a lot of ‘ibotic’ mannerisms such as ‘chai’  ‘ngwanu’ and so forth, and  matches pitch with himself…

Music Review: Only You by Nikki Laoye

‘New’, ‘fresh’ and ‘inspiring’ are the words to describe Nikki Laoye’s latest single! Already my favourite song, ‘Only You’ is an alternative piece; soft rock with strong, beautiful vocals.  It is almost like the music soflty seeps into your soul, driving all the ‘edgyness’ away. She clearly displays her vocal prowess in this song,…
