Yaaaaaaayy, a big thanks to Matthew.. u rock! Can someone say Rockability!, I am totally rocking the life out of em.. hehehehe, so wienna, hopefully my next budunk shot will be in my DS jeans.
On to other things, since I did the radio interview with NigerianWebRadio
I have gotten several emails asking me why I named the artists I named as my favourite artists without elaborating.. o..k. well I dint elaborate because …… and no there is no bias like someone emailed. I simply like them and in no particular order, Ill briefly
2face Idibia: unique voice, very creative, killer acapella, good stage voice, collabos usually turn to hits, addictive voice, has sex appeal,.. and my fave songs are African Queen, Ole, Love is a crime, true love, ocho, Odiya, in fact all his songs are nice
Unique Voice, Unique Style, Great command of the yoruba
language, love the proverbial lyrics, very powerful on stage, usually leaves me wanting more, collabos
usually turn to hits, sex appeal and my fave songs are Talent dey
waste, Make them talk, Little Money, and his collabo
with Ruggedman, Ruggedy Baba
knows how to play with words, his lyrics unlike a lot of rap doesn’t give me a headache, great stage presence, and my fav
songs are ruggedy baba
, rock da
spot, boing boing
, so idi
ye.. (the one he did with durella
, who by the way is another artist to keep an eye on) and in fact 98% of the songs on his new album. btw
: I love this picture of him. tres
Lord of Ajasa: raw talent, influential makes me want to be razz lol, great command of his mother tongue, different spin on rap music and my fave tracks are I dey 4party, Bi Ere, Otiya (my fave on his album titled Its toooo much) .
Faze: only artist I know so far with his vocal ability, great range, great stage presence, kinda sexy and my fav tracks are kpokpodipo, Tatoo Girl, Kolomental, Faze Alone, Angel Gabriella and many more
One thing I noted was, a lot of the songs I like were produced by the same producer, ID CABASA, hmnnn so maybe its CABASA I like. lol.
I listen to a lot of Naija music and I usually tag the artists that I can listen to and enjoy their whole album without skipping more than 3 tracks good artists. I know some are expecting me to mention Dbanj, Psquare etc but Im not. For me I think psquare probably has the best put together stage presence in the industry but I dont know why everytime I hear their songs I always get this feeling like Ive heard it before and Dbanj has his sex appeal more than his vocal abilities doing the work for him cos lord knows he makes me want to find out what the koko is.. hehehe.
Other artist that would have made it if I were doing a top 10 would be Morachi he sang Hapuya like dat, Original Steroeman, he sang Ekwe, loooove that song, Danfo Drivers(mad melon and mountains black), Blackface( Im probably the biggest blackface fan I know), Konga(kinda), anyhoo these are the artists I see real talent in that I feel can break mainstream quick if they maintain their unique style and dont jump too much into what everyone has heard before, kinda like what Jamaicans did with Reggae/ ragga/ dancehall music. I remember before sean paul broke out and we used to go watch him perform at cheesy halls/clubs promoted by these Jamaican dudes out here in LA. Him, elephant man, Mr Vegas( had a major crush on him), capleton etc. Boy did I used to be a reggae head back then.. anyways, there are plenty others but for me, these are my personal top 5 faves. and oh, please all those people who keep comparing mode9 to ruggedman, STOP it. sighs! 2 different artists with 2 totally different styles..
with that said, I loveeeee the first 24 seconds of this video. Check out 2face’ s facial expression. Reminds me of the most adorable little boy I met in January. Full of mischief.. lol
