The Nigerian music scene is growing and developing - its great to see some Nigerian acts diversifying in terms of the music they are producing. There is a new genre emerging – something along the lines of Naija Soft-Rock. Often times, their songs are gospel tinged such as the very popular, Lagimo.
Check out another artiste that is making waves – Nikki Laoye with her song, ‘Never Felt This Way Before’ which coincidentally was also produced by Cobhams.
Unbiased also did a recent feature on her. Check on it HERE
I have been searching for this song for ages! Its called ‘Oju Ife Lo’ by Abuja-based artiste, SLK – Luv it!
Check out some recent interviews:
Genevieve Nnaji Interview – She talks about her new fashion label, St. Genevieve and her other projects
Ini Edo Interview by Stella Dimoko Korkus– She responded to the allegations that she was arrested in the UK for trafficking drugs (The Nigerian press gives Ini such a hard time.....I hope they ease off)

RIP to Elder Steve Rhodes and Sammy Needle. They have both passed away due to illness. With the passing of Sunny Okosun, this brings the deathtoll of Nigerian musicians to 3 this month :( I pray their families are well. Read more at Ayeni's Blog
