Unless your living under a rock, there’s no way you wouldn’t have heard Simi’s melodious voice on “Duduke” produced by Oscar. The song being the number one song in the country at the moment seemed like a unique love song at the time of its release, turned out to something much deeper. It’s accompanying visuals gave listeners a deep understanding of the message Simi is trying to pass across.
The song which has beautifully written lyrics speaks about the bond between a mother and her unborn child; it shows that a mother’s love is unconditional and unwavering. Notwithstanding, the song can also be enjoyed by everyone including lovers so you don’t have to be a preggo or a mother to vibe to the song.

Everyone’s baby, Adekunle Gold switched genres again with the release of “Something Different” which was produced by Blaize Beats. The track sees Adekunle woo his lover in a more gentle and sexy manner. The tune is a blend of highlife and Afropop with a dash of highlife and jazz. The beat accompanied by trumpets and Saxophones is one sound that the eastern folks can relate to and can also be enjoyed by all.
Starboy Terri – “Ojoro”
