#1. Victony ft. Rema, Don Toliver – Soweto (Remix)
In the past few days, a series of Soweto Remix snippets with artistes like Omah Lay, CKay, and Don Toliver surfaced online and we were unsure who Victony was finally going to remix the song with. Fast forward to Wednesday, the singer released the official remix of the infectious banger featuring American singer, Don Toliver and Afrobeats golden boy, Rema. On the Soweto remix, Don Toliver and Rema added the needed seasoning to the track. They both delivered, flowing seamlessly on the mellifluous instrumentation of the track, provided by one of the most talented beatmakers in the Nigerian music industry, the one and only Tempoe.
#2. Ajebo Hustlers – You Go Know
Ajebo Hustlers have come through with a new single titled You Go Know. The dynamic duo opens their 2023 chapter after a spectacular outing in the previous year. On You Go Know, the lyrics highlight the struggle of the duo who consistently work hard to make a living and the dedication that is required to succeed in life. The catchy chorus “I believe in myself, all your doubt opari opari o” emphasizes the message Ajebo Hustlers are trying to convey, which is that success will always come to those who work hard and believe in themselves.
#3. Lil Kesh – Good Bad Boy
As we close the first quarter of the year, YAGI Entertainment head honcho, Lil Kesh opens his 2023 account with a new single titled Good Bad Boy. On Good Bad Boy, Lil Kesh paints the situation of an insatiable woman who demands too much from a man, hence the song’s title. With lyrics such as: “She wants a gangster that is a pastor, she wants all in one,” the rapper-cum-singer also hinted at the pros of imperfection and satisfaction. The song is produced by IBKisSleek, mixed and mastered by Vtek.
#4. Iyanya – Plans
Following the release of the star-studded One Time remix with Tekno and Mayorkun, Iyanya pulls another track off his hat.
