#NewMusicWeekend: The Hottest New Songs Out Now.

New Music Weekend is here again to keep you vibing with great sounds from some of our favourite artists. This week we have songs from Nigerian RnB Legend Paul Play, British rapper Octavian, Sosa-E, Maison2500, Wurld, and Strafitti. Enjoy.


Paul Play & Nonso Amadi – Kolo

Yes, you’re reading that right. The Nigerian music legend resurged from the shadows to create this soothing, soulful vibe featuring rising star Nonso Amadi, who also produced the song.

This is Paul Play’s second single this year, after releasing the remix of his hit track ‘Angel Of My Life‘ featuring Afropop star Runtown.

Octavian – Poison Feat. Take-A-Daytrip, Santi & Obongjayar

Octavian releases his second single of the year ‘Poison’ an infectious psychedelic track that features Santi and British-Nigerian Afro-Electro singer Obongjayar.

The eargasmic hook delivered by Obongjayar is met with incredible deliveries by Octavian and Santi. American producer Take-A-Daytrip’s bouncy production provided a sturdy baseline. The hypnotic music video caps off a project that doesn’t suffer from a lack of superlatives.

WurlD – Love Nobody

Wurld is back with his first drop of the year ‘Love Nobody’ produced by TXMO. The electronic percussion and synth-filled track will get your hips moving.

Wurld sets a charming and passionate mood, declaring exclusivity and deep affection for his ‘baby’ “She Don’t Want Me Loving Nobody/And I Don’t Want My Baby Next To Nobody”.

Sosa-E & Ayo Busari – They Said

Sosa-E is back with his second single of the year, called ‘They Said’, featuring fellow trapper ‘Ayo Busari’.

Sosa-E confronts some controversies he’s been facing on social media. The 21-year-old Rapper/Trapper imitates the news and slander being spread about his lifestyle by saying ” they said I’m a liar, please believe..Sosa-E showcases his flamboyant flow and cadence mixed with slight jabs using metaphors on a bouncy Trap beat.

After Industry Co-signs from African Music Giant Olamide, the trap-infused rapper is taking it upon himself to show the world that he is way more talented than meets the eye.

Maison2500 x Odunsi (the Engine) – “Dirty Fanta”

Following months of borderline torturous teasing of their joint single, ‘Wicked, Sexy!’, Maison2500 and Odunsi [The Engine] have done a 180 and released a new collab, ‘Dirty Fanta’. Originally premiered by Maison on his Instagram back in December, the psychedelic track appeared to be a solo effort from the Manhattan based rapper. But just like Playboi Carti, Maison seems to have many tricks up his sleeve.

Over trippy instrumentals, the pair depicts a graphic glance into the rockstar lifestyle, “Money coming in way too fast/Bands on my ass do the dash.” Odunsi then slides in with a catchy rap verse, unleashing new vocal textures that perfectly fit into the pocket of the track. ‘Dirty Fanta’ is the lead single off Maison’s forthcoming EP, Turnpike, set to drop May 1st. And following that is the release of his highly anticipated album, Maseverse.

N.B.U by Fave

Fave is no doubts one of the most promising upcoming Nigerian acts out there, at this very moment. Nine months into professional music, she has already proven a point and has garnered credo from some Nigerian music execs. Three of her songs have also featured on NDANI TV shows. Fave is very expressive with her music and also armed with an expansive vocal pitch that can possibly do wonders on any beats. A few weeks ago, Jinmi Abduls posted free beats via his twitter page and Fave showed up some moment later with a freestyle video which went viral. N.B.U was the song that was birthed from this unprecedented quarantine vibe. If you haven’t listened, we can guarantee you this is an uplifting and soul-stirring music worth every bit of your time.

Straffitti – Straff From Nigeria

In “Straff from Nigeria” Straffitti does what he does best, delivering energy and heavy-hitting bars with a creatively unorthodox video to match.

Straffitti delivers catchy, silly lines on a synth-heavy production which sucks you into his universe. The music video employs dynamic and creative techniques to show his perspective of living as a young person in Nigeria.
