5 Good Songs That We Have Ignored
Nigerians have been served some of the best albums on the continent in recent times.
From these albums have come many hit songs, but these albums have tracks that make us unfairly press the 'skip' button.
So, from Adekunle's Gold to Wizkid's Sounds From The Other Side, Bounce News brings 5 standout tracks that should have not been ignored during Christmas.
Adekunle Gold — "Nurse Alabere" (Gold)
While we wait for '30' sometime this year from the talented Adekunle Gold, we have overlooked what can be considered as one of the best tracks on the album.
"Nurse Alabere" could have dominated the airwaves.
It's a beautiful song in which he searches for a nurse to heal his broken heart.
The melody soothes the soul and flows like a river through the body of the listener. It can calm worked up nerves.
Wizkid — "Dirty Wine" ft. Ty Dolla $ign (SFTOS)
Nigerians will say that Wizkid’s Sounds From The Other Side, was not made for Africa. But we cannot deny it still sold Africa to the world.
It had Come Closer featuring Drake as the major standout.
One other song that has been underrated features Ty Dolla $ign-assisted "Dirty Wine".
Nigerians will relate with the song because they will find the Wizkid they know, doing his thing on a very catchy beat.
The beat was produced by an America, DJ Mustard, who must have listened to a lot of Wizkid's Nigerian produced songs, because he seemed to give fans a reason to get a second, third and even fourth listening.
Reekado Banks — "Koloba" (Spotlight)
It’s really shocking that this song was not as celebrated on Reekado Bank's successful Spotlight album.
Koloba deserved to have been pushed by Mavin records and given more air time.
The altims produced song is speaks of undying love and reminds you of Davido's Aye.
It has the same type of vocal texture and musical feel.
Making it a song that everyone can connect with on a 'familiarity' level.
Kiss Daniel — “Kudi” (New Era)
Kiss Daniel’s New Era introduced Nigerians to a new style of music making and interesting lyrics.
One song that would have been 'the' jam for Kiss Daniel is "Kudi".
The song feels like it has been pulled out of the 60's and given a second chance to live among mortals.
If you have ever 'toasted' a girl before, you would be able to connect with this song while appreciating the way Kiss Daniel's sonorous creates a new reality.
Falz — "Soupé" ft. Yemi Alade (Stories That Touch)
Falz had a goldmine on his hands with Stories That Touch. Almost all the best songs off the CD got released as singles.
The one song that was 'wrongfully' skipped, is his solid collaboration with Yemi Alade.
Titled 'Soupé' the song featured 2 musical powerhouses and a blend of old and new school vibes.
In the song Falz appreciates a lady's body.
His hilarious lyrics and Yemi Alade's pidigin in a cool soprano when laid on a beat that jams Highlife Afro pop and rap together, becomes a banger.
It's not easy to successfully pull this off, but Falz and Yemi Alade have the magic touch.
The listener while swimming in the sea of all this musical goodness will be forced into breaking some moves.
So why did falz ignore this 'sweet' song?
