I mean when last did you hear songs of other genres like politics, conflict, everyday events, disasters, poverty etc. Ever since the war on boko haram started, have you ever heard a song condemning the sect or a song to give hope to those displaced and affected?

The Americans are even trying with the likes of Rihanna's "American oxygen" and many more. All we hear in today Nigeria is going crazy about big ass, meaningless love, money and women. I just watched lil kesh' "rora" video and I must confess that the music industry is in deep rot.
That's why I respect Aekunle Gold and Qdot...
Well, do I blame them? those vixens sripping and displaying yansh....

All of you that are complaining, how many dope Nigerian singers/ rappers do you know or support? Folks don't practise what they preach anymore. Do you know Our own Blaqbones, a rapper that launched his career on Nairaland here? Do you know rappers like Boogey, Eclipse, Luluraps, AQ, Mojeed, Santi, e.t.c? To you know singers like Aramide, Sir Dauda, Johnny Drille, Tomi Thomas, Tay Aiwar, Nonso Amadi, Odunsi, Ric Hassani, Morell, Funbi, Aduke, and several other dope underground artistes? No! They remain underground because you lots don't appreciate nor hype good music. Y'all prefer pangolo music. Stop complaining. We the few little know these good musicians and appreciate them. Follow them on social media to encourage them. You are what you listen to. Music is a taste. Going through your playlist can give a slight insight into your personality.

By the way, I'm a music producer and a singer. I learnt everything all by myself. You can do it too. Visit my blog in my signature below for tutorials to get you started. I'll be dropping a new philosophical song on here before the week runs out, hope you'll support good music then.

I know nearly all the peeps you mentioned grin

It's because singing about butts and bosoms sell more than gala

No! Nudity does not sell. We sell it. The overwhelming power in nudity is nothing compare to the presence of God.


It is a pity that people do not realise the power in the presence of God through praise and worship.

In the presence of God there is fullness of Joy.

In the presence of nudity there is sadness, sorrow, regret, demonic possessions and obsessions.

Pretty good rock song. I got to add it to my playlist.
Been listening to "Faceless by Red" recently. I think it is great and the lyrics is beautiful too.

. I can boast of knowing 14 out of the 17 u mentioned and being a lover of 12. Boogey is arguably the best lyricist in the naija rap game presently and I'm happy for his last year headies nomination. Ric hassani(igbo boy Wey dey bear hausa name,lol) has managed to do so much for himself even as an indie artist. Nonso amadi is just in another league. I don't know how he did it but he managed to find his way into the hearts of good music loving Nigerians with his song 'tonight'. Some Nigerians are beginning to open their eyes to the true purpose of music but that ain't enough. Go out there and support these guys,most of their shows ain't expensive and buy their music online too. That way you'll encourage people like me who's soon to hit the studio again. My own style of music sef doesn't sound Nigerian at all. When I listen to Rockstar by post Malone and Gucci gang,I'm like :Nigerians love these songs but if it were to have been Nigerians that sang such(even better),will they love them the same? They'll prolly say they're trying to sound foreign when in reality that's just how they sound. Most of them don't even know what Cardi B said in bodak yellow yet they love it.

Yeah,that's the hypocrisy of Nigerians. They'd follow Jon Bellion and Khalid on social media and help hype them, but will turn blind eyes and deaf ears to Brymo and Bez. See? I don't blame guys who started out dope, but had to water down. e.g Praise. Money must be made. Like Dremo said, they are all trying to fix up their bank account.

You have a point but artists like 2face, Duncan Mighty, Timi dakolo, femi kuti and sometimes, Darey art Alade make sensible music outside women & cash

. You know why I still like Praize? The guy's voice and it has just found a way to blend in. He sang one of the few songs that I actually like with this 'pon pon' beat that almost every naija artiste is using now and that was 'Me and you' ft Sarkodie. He still gives good songs like 'If I fall' and 'Folashade'. Dremo has one of the best flows in the rap game right now and there was a time he tried to sing but he switched back dishing out 'Who'. That song is fire.

. Yes. For me the problem is not just about singing about sex cos certain sexual songs have 'meaningful meanings' but are all ur songs about that and without 'meaningful meanings'? That's what gets to me.
