5 Nigerian Songs You Must Download Today

Shake up your playlist.

Four new tracks and one throwback jam from last year make up our list of hot downloads this week.

1. Byno — Love Me

R&B up and comer Byno makes the instrumental of US rapper Kid Ink’s Show Me his own, lilting vocals flowing effortlessly.


2. Modenine — Oyea Rappers (Feat. Reminisce)

Sampling the opening line of Reminisce’s 2011 megahit Kako Bii Chicken for the simplest of hooks, this track off Modenine’s monster 40-track album—Above Ground Level—features the veteran lyricist’s signature boasts and a solid Yoruba verse from Reminisce himself.


3. VTEK — Spotlight (Feat. Capital FEMI)

Producer/singer VTEK’s single from 2013 got a special effects-laden music video this week, reminding us of just how special the song is.


4. Profound — Half Price [EXPLICIT]

It’s not very often that you come across an honest hardcore rap track by a Nigerian, and that makes newcomer Profound’s Half Price pure gold, explicit lyrical gold.


5. Vector — Shiga (Feat. Waje & Toolz)

On Shiga, from his forthcoming #A7 mixtape, rapper Vector crosses smoothly into party jam territory no small thanks to an infectious beat engineered by e-Kelly. Singer Waje and ubiquitous radio personality Toolz also lend their voices to this brilliant song.
