Student Village Weekly Music Playlist; Written by Shekinah Brama.

Student Village Weekly Music Playlist; This week has been a very stressful week for me, in fact, living and working or schooling in Nigeria is stressful on its own and I’m just going to be dropping a few Naija tracks that I listened to throughout this week that kept me going. Enjoy!!!!

SUGARCANE REMIX BY CAMIDOH FEATURING MAYORKUN, DARKOO & KING PROMISE

RELEASED IN 2022

If every time you played a song, the artiste’s throat starts moving, I’m sure that all the artistes in this song would have lost their throats because it’d have shifted from its original position because of the number of times I’ve played the song on repeat. I personally love Mayorkun and King Promise, then having them on a song together is just really beautiful.

  Before now, I hadn’t heard of Camidoh but after hearing this song, I think he’s one of Ghana’s most underrated artiste because he’s pretty good and has very wonderful control of his voice. Now let’s talk about Mayorkun’s verse in this song; Just fire

Baby make i fire you….

With my machine gun

Sixteen rounds……………………

Every single artist on this song was perfect and the song has been topping charts since its release; It is number 8 on Apple music Top 100:Nigeria.

OVERLOADING(OVERDOSE)  BY CRAYON, AYRA STARR, BOY SPYCE, LADIPOE AND MAGIXX

RELEASED IN 2022

Like I said in one of my previous articles, Don Jazzy has an A1 in recruiting new talents into his record label, from Dbanj, Wande Coal, Tiwa Savage and the rest that were in Mo’hits to Reekado Banks, Korede Bello, D’ija that were in https://youtu.be/0PnMYY6HDr8Mavins to this new young and fresh talents that he has in Mavins now.

Every single artiste in Mavin records has their distinct sound and in ‘overloading’, they put their talents together to make magic. From the production of the beat of this song to the artiste’s lyrics and the way they all complimented each other’s voices, this song is just beautiful. Little wonder it’s number 1 on Apple music top 100:Nigeria, topping charts on Spotify and audiomack and trending on Tiktok.

DADA  REMIX BY YOUNG JONN FEATURING DAVIDO

RELEASED IN 2022

Young Jonn; the wicked producer has proven that he is not just an award-winning producer and songwriter but also a wonderful singer. If you loved the original, then get ready to fall head over heels with this remix that has our very own OBO serenading us with his beautiful frog voice and mind captivating lyrics.

This song is a street anthem with a very funky beat and catchy lyrics. This remix is built on the original instrumental and Davido just did what he knows how to do best with his lyrics. Speaking on the remix, Young Jonn said; “this remix is here to solidify the buzz that Dada has been gaining before and I’m most excited to have OBO join me on the song”. 

ABEG BY EGBON CASS AND REMY ADAN

RELEASED IN 2022

This particular song is special to me because Egbon cass is my guyest guy and on this song, he teams up with Remy Adan; an Ivorian singer and songwriter that’s popular for his song “LA GOUT DE” went viral on TikTok to give us this beautiful music.

 Cass is known for mind-blowing rap songs so you can imagine my surprise when I heard the smoothness of his voice in this song, Ah my own cass giving sweet romantic boy vibes….it’s giving me joy.

The chorus and Remy’s verse are in French, I can’t do a direct translation but the song is basically about a guy begging his girlfriend to come back to him after messing up. Abeg I am not coming back. Periodt.

O2 BY OXLADE

RELEASED IN 2020

O2 is the main single from Oxlade’s album “oxygen”. Oxlade in an interview said that the song was initially a love letter that he wrote to his ex during his stay in London. The song talks about how without the girl, he can’t breathe and she’s the one he needs to survive like how he needs oxygen. He made a lot of promises and vows in this song ohh..and every time I listen to the song, I just imagine that it’s my perfect lover singing it to me. This song never sounds old to me, I always get butterflies in my tummy anytime I listen to it.

MR MAN BY FAVE 

RELEASED IN 2022

It’s Friday and I believe that it has been a very stressful week and you need to unwind. This is the perfect song for unwinding, just get scented candles and a glass of wine and soak yourself up in your bathtub. If you don’t have a bathtub, just go and borrow Iya Basirat’s big drum and soak yourself inside with one chilled cup of Nutri-C; if they still sell or just buy eve…the point is just to be drinking something that’s chilled.

  “Mr Man” is a single from Fave’s recently released Riddim 5 EP. This song is just hypnotising, she tells her man to say the things he can’t say with his mouth with his hand….Do you get it? If you don’t get it then just forget about it.  I personally love the range of Fave’s voice in this song and the lyrics are exactly what I want to say to my man and also what most men want to hear. Okurr 

DREAMS BY BOY SPYCE

RELEASED IN 2022

This song is one of the tracks on Boy spyce’s EP and on this track, I can say that he went personal with this one.The song is about partners that have different dreams and they have to let themselves go so that they can both chase their dreams. He sings about how he feels incomplete as the girl is leaving but he has to let the girl go and chase her dreams with the hope that they’ll both come back together but after 5years the girl has forgotten about him; very typical of the female specie so I’m not surprised. I have a strong feeling that this story is real because the passion and pain I hear in this song is so real I can almost touch it.

BADDEST BOY REFIX BY OXLADE

RELEASED IN 2022

I really like the original of this song but there’s something about Oxlade’s voice and lyrics that just draws me to this refix. Maybe it’s because it’s 2022 and e go plentiful or because Oxlade is just an incredible vocalist or because I have a crush on him. Listen to this refix and I promise you’ll love it too.

Bye, see you again next week. wink wink
