NEW MUSIC: SOLID STAR-SKIBO



Introducing fast-rising singing sensation SOLID STAR with his amazing new single - the dance infused future hit titled “Skibo”. Brilliantly produced by Slim Beats, “Skibo” is a head-bopping bass heavy which sees Solid Star in sublime fashion as he rides the fast-paced musical milieu superbly with an infectious flow, sweet vocals and some catchy and witty wordplay.

Lyrically, “Skibo” is a sweet and infectious dance tune with memorable libretto which sees Solid Star professing his love for the “fine fine ladies” that will “take you to the line” and “break your waistline” as he asks his fine lady to “take it easy on me”. Musically, “Skibo” is a monster production laced with a careful combination of contagious drum patterns and rhythmic synth arrangements that come together beautifully to create this huge dance floor filler that is poised to take over the clubs in the coming months.

NEW MUSIC: BURNA BOY-LIKE TO PARTY


Here it is the groove slightly transformed
Just a bit of a break from the norm
Just a little somethin' to break the monotony

a little bit out of control it's cool to dance
But what about the groove that soothes that moves romance

PUSHA T TAKES SHOT AT DRAKE, LIL WAYNE READY FOR WAR

Pusha T takes aim at Drake and Young Chop on a new cut titled "Exodus 23:1."

Last night, Pusha T released his new cut "Exodus 23:1"believed to be aimed at Drake and Young Chop.
Over a ghostly beat, the G.O.O.D. Music signee takes square aim at Drizzy with lines including, "Beef is when you hide behind them other niggas / But they ain't killers, they ain't pullin' them triggers, fuck niggas."
He made reference to Drake's recording contract, most likely referring to the fact that he's signed to Lil Wayne, who is signed to Birdman whose label is housed under Universal Music. "Contract all fucked / Explain up I guess that means you all fucked up / You signed to one nigga that signed to another nigga that's signed to three niggas / Now that's bad luck," he raps.
Young Chop, on the other hand, got a one-off couplet about his issue with Kanye West remaking his beat for the remix of Chief Keef's "I Don't Like."  "You can keep your beats, nigga / We'd much rather share your bitch, nigga, bitch nigga," he spits.
Wayne has already outright responded to the comments. "Fuk pusha t and anybody that love em," he tweeted.

Yetunde Omobadan



Yetunde Orija, performs under the stage name YETUNDE OMOBADAN. Tremendously talented Yetunde Omobadan was born and bred in Gidi. She emerged 3rd runner up at the MTN Project Fame.


Yetunde has a strong beautiful voice, and whoever watched the show would fully and certainly agree with me. She is influenced by Whitney Houston, India Arie, Jill Scott, Lionel Richie, Asa, Tracy Chapman and Fuji all stars, who knows, she might influence other up and coming artists as well.
