5 Recently Released Nigerian Hip Hop Tracks I Couldn’t Get Off My Playlist By MoVeeK

Steadily in the past few years, there’s been an evolution in the hip hop game of Nigeria. Every hip hop head is trying to get his signature print in the music industry. Even though some top rappers have gone into oblivion, we still have some are trying to keep the game tight. Below is a list of hip hop tracks I have been jamming lately, check it out;

1. Falz ft. Phyno X Chigurl – “Karishika”
falz-karishika-ft-phyno-chigul-art
This is one track I have been jamming for more than a week now. The vibe just keeps getting to me, Falz and Phyno really did a fantastic job on this song. Falz has been doing very well ever since he released his album “Wazup Guy” . The hook goes thus
Killer with the flows and nobody sicker,
The money and the fame now coming quicker,
Queen of the coast don dey find a nigga
Lord save me from karishika.       

2. Vector X Sarkodie – “King Kong” Remix/Cypher
King-Kong-Remix-Vector-ft-Sarkodie

Oshey.! Had to get this song on the second spot. As if the first remix was was not okay, Vector went on and did another remix with Sarkodie. Trust me this is the best of all versions of King Kong. Vector and Sarkodie seem to have this good chemistry when they bounce on a beat just like they did on Sarkodie’s “Rap Attack”. Thumbs up to both of them for this track

3. Ola Dips – “Let Dagrin Down”
ola-ips-let-dagrin-down

You might be wondering like who Ola Dips is, I would simply say he’s the next “face of indigenous hip hop” . This song is more than just a tribute to DaGrin, he made a lot of things cleared in the song in a very well delivered way. The song is a cover of Tinashe’s Pretend featuring A$AP Rocky and is a reminiscent of J Cole’s “Let Nas Down”. The part I really loved was the skit in the end where DaGrin made a phone call to Ola Dips. Thumbs up to sossick on the production.

4. Phyno – “Asai” Phyno-Asai-BellaNaija-June-2015-600x600
Phyno keeps bursting my brain with every track he churns out. Even though I no dey hear wetin e dey talk, lol. I just like the way he flows and delivers his verse. The visuals even took the track to another level. Cop it if you’ve not.

5. A-Q – ” Free Thinker”

AQ-Free-Thinker-Video-740x393
For a while now, A-Q has been dropping lots of materials since his “Son of John” mixtape which had lots of positive reviews. But this track right here gat some real good delivery and story telling in it. He talked bout Religion and our world of today. It’s my last but not the least track off my list.

‘Uganda’s Ugliest Man’ Becomes Dad for the 8th Time [PHOTOS]

ugly
A man crowned the ugliest man in Uganda has become a dad for the EIGHTH time. Godfrey Baguma, known as Sebabi – which means ‘ugliest of them all’ – suffers from a rare medical condition giving him his distinctive looks.
The 47-year-old married his second wife Kate Namanda, 30, in 2013.
Since then the couple have had six kids – two of Sebabi’s nippers come from his first marriage which
broke up some years ago.
Speaking to KFM, he said:
“I caught her cheating with another man and I assured her our relationship was over. She liked me because of my money, but people kept telling her that she could do better, so she started eloping with another man.”
Sebabi then met Namanda, who was 18 at the time, through his aunt who played go between. He said:
“I stayed with her four years before her people knew where she was. I didn’t want them to see me until we had a child because they would definitely advise her to leave me. She left me when she was six months pregnant but I think she later accepted her fate because she came back two months later.
I told her that I didn’t choose to look the way I do and that if she feels I am a burden, she is free to live me.
But she chose to stay and in 2013 they held a wedding ceremony that put his hometown Kyazanga, in the Lwengo District of Uganda, at a standstill. Guests at the wedding had to pay 4,000 Ugandan shillings (about 70p) to attend the reception and see the woman Sebabi married, MirrorUK reports.
Sebabi is a former cobbler who now uses his unique features to earn a living. He appears at events as Uganda’s Ugliest Man just for people to see him, but he took it a step further by launching a singing career.
He says he doesn’t want to go on stage for people to just stare at him.
