ogugua88: Hmm. I'll have to agree with the others about Flavour's album o. It's been selling, even here in the US. It was on iTunes three days after they hit streets in Nigeria, and his videos on youtube direct people to iTunes.

The person who released an album and I had no clue was Duncan Mighty. I just got it last week lol. Apart from the two or three flop tracks, it's a solid album.

As for "Solar Plexus", haters will hate. I fell in love with that album when I first heard it and love it more every day. Dr Sid's "Chocolate", D'Prince's "Amarachi", and Wande Coal's "Forever" are the best. "O Ma Ga" is cool too.

Well said sis, solar plexus dropped without a vid to market d album and u gotto love abt 7 tracks frm dat album. I think dey wuda done more vids to push sales like d EME guys did.... Wen dey eventually did take banana vid peeps loved em. Mavin's albums are popular albums by Nigerian standard.

The review is on point! The fact is; the popularity of a song depends on how well its received in Lagos. Because Flavour's album is very popular in the east doesn't mean it shouldn't be on that list, even Flavour had to re-shoot some of his videos off his old album when he broke into the Lagos market. Look at Duncan Mighty who was not accepted as a major Nigerian act until his single 'Portharcourt son' broke into the lagos market despite the fact that he was a god in phc. Another example is Isolate; who had massive sales everywhere in the SW especially Akure, yet most people in Lagos don't have any idea who he is.

My 2cents though.

Absolute bunkum!

Flavour had to reshoot his ashewo video because the first one was banned. It had nothing to do with breaking into the lagos market. Even if it had, did faze shooting another video for "faze alone" also have to do with breaking into the lagos market? Btw,what is the lagos market? Different kind of music appeals to different people in Lagos. Flavour and Duncan mighty's music have always been popular in Lagos but there faces were not recognizable because they had no videos.

So if Flavour's tunes doesn't grace the party in Ayingba village, it flopped? Travel around a bit, writer... Too much of Lagos and nothing else isn't good for a man.

Ashawo original video was not banned! I have seen that video, its not lewd in any way just of very poor quality.

Lagos market here refers to mainstream media and social networks! Being popular in a particular community of Lagos doesn't mean anything if you're not getting air play on radio and TV and nobody's talking about you on twitter. Go and check twitter's trend maps, only Lagos is recognised in Nigeria so if Lagos is not talking about you there's no way you can trend on twitter!

A lot of artistes troop in to Lagos to push sales of their works. A recent example is wizboy who has been very popular in Enugu for a while but he wasn't getting the recognition he deserved, no awards nothing despite his wealth of talent until he started pushing his work in the Lagos media recently. Jeremiah Gyang is there languishing away in Abuja while guys who are far less talented are carting away international awards in Lagos. Why else do you think Timaya is a bigger star than Duncan Mighty? You think say na talent? Or do you think wizkid will be getting those int'l collabos if he was a local champion in Ibadan?

Flavor's album is the biggest album of the year at least in PHC. Hold up CD hawkers can give you the idea of what's hot. davido's album did not sell up to 100 copies in PHC. Duncan mighty and Timaya did good too. . I think Flavor's album will sell for many more years like his last one.
