#HappyNewYear: Our Top Five Alternative Naija Songs for year 2015

Hey guys,

Welcome to 2016! We pray and hope that 2016 would bring us all the great things that our hearts desire and even much more..

2016

Thank you for sticking with us in 2015. Thanks for the love, all the facebook, instagram, twitter likes and follows. Y’all were awesome in 2015. We do hope and pray that in 2016, this blog will expand and grow and that the music will be good to us.

While we anticipate greater sounds for 2016, we thought we might share our own favourite alternative sounds for 2015. These may or may not be songs that were released in 2015, but they are great tracks that made our year in 2015.

5. I’m in love with the Coco (Cover) by Tonie the Emperor:

This is probably the cutest song cover we heard in 2015. Guitar boy ‘Tonie the Emperor’ makes the song sound more sane that it actually is. Very interesting one!

 

4. Faraway by Nana Aisha:

Ever been in a situation where it’s like you’re always in trouble and it just feels like nobody gets you? Oh well.. Our number six four tells it like it is.. This is a combination of great vocals and passion from soul artist Nana Aisha.. This is definitely a great song!

 

3. Sise by Femi Leye:

This is one of the songs off Femi Leye’s album called ‘ekaabo’ which we reviewed in an earlier post. Great great great song!

 

2. To Bernard by Falana:

We brought you a chat with Falana earlier in the year, such an amazing woman and a great artiste too. This song called ‘To Bernard’ is so heartfelt and deep.

 

1. Fall in Love ft. Stan Iyke by Isaac Geralds:

This song is just the perfect song to listen to over palm wine (if that’s how you roll). We just love the high life sound and the igbo thing is very lovely as well. And have you heard Isaac Geralds perform this song live? I never get tired of it!

 

What tracks would you add? Which would you remove? Please leave a comment, repost, share…

Thanks guys,

Happy 2016!

Love, Yemisi

Hey Guys,

How are you all doing?

Anyone remember the ‘I’m in love with the coco’ jam by O.T. Genasis? Well, here’s a Nigerian version. Nigerian Soul/Folk singer, songwriter and guitarist ‘Tonie the Emperor’ brings in an awesome blend of vocals and guitar work. He kills this one in my opinion. Not sure I have ever imagined that this song could ever be so ‘musical’.

Tell me what you think about this one guys.. I think it’s HOTT!!

Listen, enjoy and drop a comment!
