Is Luni's Lakuli the Newest Street Anthem?

LUNI (pronounced "loony") is an acronym for "Like you never imagined". It is the name of this twenty-eight year old Lagos-bred, Benin-born Nigerian hip-hop artist.
A distinctive delivery and a flair for witty, deceptively intelligent lyrics and a uniquely exciting delivery make this particular act particularly absorbing.
Beginning as a young teen clumsily mimicking tupac in the privacy of his living room while struggling to recite the lyrics, his love for rap music grew deeper and with that the list of rappers added to his daily menu of hip-hop. This list included hip-hop greats Biggy, Jay-z and Nas.
 He began to pencil down his own songs and developed an acute sense of lyricism. He began recording his own music in 2001. He went on to university and blossomed into a truly prolific rhyme junkie.
He was at this time called "thrill" and earned the first hint at commercial success came in 2004 when a love song he recorded called "Downwitcha" was given by a friend (without his knowledge or permission) to a radio DJ (Kaduna’s Supreme fm's top DJ Umar socials) and was voted no1 on the Supreme FM chart.
The song became an anthem and the then "thrill" performed the track at several shows, alongside some of Nigeria's biggest acts, the largest being M-TEL's nationwide "Music talk".
He later became known as LUNI after graduating, working a 9 to 5 and returning to the game with a deeper mind and sharper delivery. LUNI has begun fast making waves in the music industry due to his undeniable talent even before the release of his first commercial single! Now the shackles are off and one can only wait with breath held in anticipation for music, like you never imagined.

His latest effort is titled "Lakuli" an infective street anthem.


Lakuli Lyrics

VS1: Move like a ninja club banger ginjah/so underground like sai we be ginger?/birthday now we deliver/d cash u possess we came tu deliver/i m going in like wheezy on a joint/so drag ma rhyme slow like easy on a joint/i m takin over rap cassanova/last bustop so get off ma coaster/no tamo, salamo/Oshamo am a faji gan /supa dupa flow n d ladies know/my rap like my wipe game,do it like a pro/ 

VS2: Kuro! If u no b my aburo/Ogede fire! U beta give me dodo/no shandy,million million/d type of money dem a move in a bullion/so all des rappers beta step aside/Luni come b4 u call me a rapper's pride/eyes 4 d chadder dis mney wan dey hide/no dead presidents..executive genocide/street sweeper,call me lawma/streets rockin ma ish, gatan kowa/tu muc chics needin rabah/so f a nice ride I wanna a fly bullalah.

VS3: My rhyme like ma gbola no man alive touchin it/ambition in overdrive so dis mic am clutchin it/ghetto soldier fresh boi na disguise/waka pass cos my goon dem dey diss guys.

Mo’Cheddah had her birthday yesterday. she unleashed a birthday gift on her fans; an insightful and triumphant song, reflecting on how far she has come from the days she was hustling to be relevant and quite candidly, at 21 she has made some success of her life and this song couldn’t have come at a more significant time in her career. Her position is one that many Feemces envy, having shared the stage with the most successful acts in Naija and beyond.
‘You see my nose; they said it’s big at smelling money
You see my mouth; they said it’s good at chopping money’
Her brand new track “See Me” features Phenom, another Knighthouse artiste. The song sounds like a spin off from her debut album ’Franchise Celebrity‘ with a definite fuji touch and heavy on traditional instrumentation.

If the intention is to drop a danceable track, then she did it grandly. Production is not very clean, lots of distortion in the background. Fuji –flavoured beat on point. Phenom is not very outstanding, lacking in punch line delivery, and those heavy metaphor are apparently not his forte. Candidly, the rap verse has no correlation with the theme of the song and Phenom certainly wasted a huge opportunity to make a statement.
As for Mo’Cheddah, though still young, her stance is remarkably vivacious and nervy, she has an inflective aura and a musical tenacity that ensure every cut of the beat becomes danceable. This might not be a “wow” track but it is certainly going to glue on her fans in no time. And seriously, she provides a tangible alternative to the balladry and opulent musicality of Asa.

A markedly reflective song, euphoric. It sums the artiste’s new found lifestyle, popularity and success. The song has a limitless affinity to Rick Ross’ Aston Martin Music and Nickleback’s Rockstar. It is a song celebrating the fast life that comes with success.

The verses were well layered on the beat and one could perceive the painstaking effort of the producer, as the chorus and verses synched. At 1 minute 52 seconds, Lift off is quite short; this could perhaps be a plus for the song, leaving the listener no choice than to punch repeat. 

Crafty use of rhyme and Nigerian lingo set this man aside as an artiste with a vault of metaphors. His gift of language, poetry and ears for rhyme reflects all through and he’s definitely saying this is not the preserve of Mode 9 or SinzuSMG. The rap verses as well hook are well delivered. The hook singer did a marvelous job and that’s perhaps one of the best hook I have heard lately on a Nigerian song.

I have listened to Material Elegbeje before, this track might just be what he needs to raise his profile and stake a claim to the Naija hip-hop mainstream. And again, “Shout out to Dr. Frabz on this one!”. He equally showed why Dagrin (R.I.P) was such a success. The song is a neat club banger any day.

RATING: 3.5/5

This year Smirnoff decided to give an opportunity to say ‘I was there’ to as many as 10 million fans, by extending the cultural exchange project to include 50 countries in total. Some of the countries involved are Australia, Nigeria, Brazil, China, Colombia, Dubai, Germany, Ghana, Great Britain, Israel, Serbia, US and Vietnam .

This year, the Smirnoff brand also partnered with Madonna in a search for “the Most Original Nightlife in the Universe”, to find the best dancer to join Madonna’s next tour.

The Nigerian version of the party tagged Smirnoff Midnight Circus will tour Three Cities, starting in Lagos. It will be hosted by the rapper Ikechukwu.  As part of the total fun package, wanna-be emcees will get the chance to prove themselves by laying a verse on the beat downloadable on Smirnoff Facebook page at The performance should be uploaded on youtube and the link put on the Smirnoff Nigeria Facebook page to enter the competition where fabulous prizes are waiting.

Revellers worldwide are invited to co-create and participate in the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project by contributing ideas on what makes their local nightlife distinct in the categories of drinks, dance, fashion, music, places, and more creating a nightlife cocktail of unique events. The most inspiring suggestions from each region will be captured online and exchanged with another country on November 12, when the night swap takes place.

By participating online, fans will have the chance to win a place at one of the global events or experience another country’s party at a Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project event in their own city.

Yole, born Oluwatoyole Adepoju on May 11, 1989, is the first of four boys born to Dr. and Dr. (Mrs) Adepoju. The Nigerian born artist was taken to Sydney, Australia as a toddler and was introduced to orchestral music at a tender age. Yole’s interest in hip-hop started very early in life with his performance as a rapper in his class’ imitation of the ‘Joyful Joyful’ number from Sister Act 2. As he grew older, he began writing numbers for his church's children choir.
Yole’s strength is in rap music metaphors and similes became major ingredients in his style. At thirteen he began attending rap battle competitions in his neighborhood. From this, he began to compete in the battles but was not able to win any.  However, Yole honed his writing skills and although he stopped participating in battles, he never stopped free-styling.
At sixteen, Yole gained admission into Covenant University to study Petroleum engineering. By then he had been writing songs and had participated in numerous ciphers. With the help of producer Nasty (now Nastizzle) he recorded his first track titled ‘Black-White-Black’.
He and his family later moved to England, and the exposure was limitless. It was the rebirth of Yole. With help and encouragement from friends in the music industry, such as Silly beats, he was able to breathe life into a still-born career.
The road has since been clear cut for the 22 year old who has since worked with Tintin, Silly Beats, Sencosonic, Contradiction, Oyinkansola, MsChief and many more.
With his momentum in music, Yole is fast becoming a force to reckon with among artists both home and abroad.

Raunchy without the rough edge… Not without its share of coarse words. What it lacked in content, Mr Olu Maintain’s new track “NAWTi” made up for in style and vocal delivery. It’s definitely a track you’ll probably want to play over and over again. It is not a party song- my 10 kobo- but it is a song for the hotel lobby, if you are into that fetish.  The brand new track might as well re-establish and bring about the buzz around the “Yahoooze” crooner.  NAWTi - Natural African Woman Totally Inspiring-is cool and mood setting, especially for a night of erotic revolution.
I wouldn’t pass the lyrical content for average, it was below par but Mr. Olu’s vocalization showed a strong element of dexterity and the auto tunes can’t take that away. The producer should have taken down the volume on the beat, it clearly overshadowed the vocalization.
Except for the thrilling production, the art cover was very misleading and as ‘Natural African Woman Totally Inspiring” , it should have been more African; the model with blond hair on the art cover was a great disservice to what the song was intended to project. This might be another gimmick from Mr. Olu, but on its merit, it is a song worth listening to over and over.
