Davido Set To Drop Long-awaited Single “Flex My Soul”



Davido Set To Drop Long-awaited Single "Flex My Soul" |

Afrobeats superstar Davido has been spearheading the movement to bring African music to a global audience for over ten years. In a recent interview with Billboard, the Grammy-nominated artist reflects on his remarkable musical journey. He is set to drop his new single titled “Flex My Soul.”

Billboard posted a behind-the-scenes video titled “Davido Welcomes All to His World of Music Honda Stage x Billboard.” It features Davido discussing his initial foray into music and the current global reach of Afrobeats. The interview sheds light on how his passion for music began, tracing it back to the lively parties his mother used to host.

“My mom used to throw a lot of parties when I was young and from there, it can of like form into me loving music,” Davido said.

Davido’s musical journey wasn’t a straight shot to singing. He initially began his career behind the scenes, honing his skills as a producer. It wasn’t part of his original plan to step into the spotlight, but fate (and perhaps some hidden talent) had other plans. His debut single, released after this shift in focus, unexpectedly propelled him into the world of music stardom. This proves that sometimes the greatest discoveries come when we least expect them.

“In my head at that time I never think I would be in the forefront, be an artist. One day one of my cousins decided to release one my songs as me and when I move back to Nigeria I just took it on full time”.

Davido also expressed his enthusiasm for collaborating with other artists, highlighting his enjoyment of incorporating them into his music.

” My first single was a collaboration so I love collaborating, especially like bringing them to my world,” Davido said referring to his first single ‘Back When’ featuring Naeto C which he also produced.

The interview also touched on Davido’s upcoming single “Flex My Soul,” which he previously hinted at. He suggested a female artist might be featured on the track, and it seems like he’ll be performing it on the Billboard Honda Stage.

Davido also spoke about the international explosion of Afrobeats. He acknowledged the increased accessibility of the genre but emphasised that the music and its infectious energy have always been there.

Chike Releases New Soulful Single “Man Not God”



'Man Not God': Chike releases soulful single |

Nigerian music sensation Chike is back with a brand new single, “Man Not God,” ahead of the release of his highly anticipated third album, “Son Of Chike.”

Chike has carved a unique niche for himself in the Nigerian music scene, known for his ability to seamlessly blend R&B, folk, and soulful ballads with his Igbo heritage. This artistic fusion is evident in “Man Not God.”

“Man Not God” is a departure from some of Chike’s upbeat tracks.

Instead, it takes the form of a soul-stirring folk ballad, rich with timeless wisdom and deep reflection. The song draws inspiration from the legendary Celestine Ukwu’s classic “Ife Si Na Chi,” hinting at a return to more traditional roots.

Chike’s soulful vocals take centre stage, weaving a captivating melody that creates an intimate atmosphere. This is further enhanced by the rich acoustic instrumentation, providing a backdrop for Chike’s heartfelt delivery.

The overall effect is a powerful anthem that celebrates humility and faith, inviting listeners to contemplate their own life journeys and the role of the divine. With “Man Not God,” Chike seems to be setting the tone for a more introspective and meaningful album with “Son Of Chike.”

Award-winning singer Simi has finally revealed the exciting details surrounding her upcoming album, titled “Lost and Found.” Simi took to her social media platforms to unveil the highly anticipated tracklist. This sparked a wave of excitement amongst her fans. She playfully engaged her audience, asking them to comment on which song they’re most eagerly awaiting.

The album boasts a total of 14 tracks. Simi isn’t afraid to collaborate with a variety of talented artists, and “Lost and Found” reflects this. Fans can expect features from some of Nigeria’s biggest names, including Asa, Lojay, Ebenezer Obey, and rappers Ladipoe and Falz.

To round out this impressive roster, Tiwa Savage makes an appearance, reuniting with Simi after their hit collaboration “Men Are Crazy.” The song is already a fan favourite and is available to stream on various platforms.

“Borrow Me Your Baby,” another pre-released single featuring Falz, has also been generating buzz online. The release of the tracklist only intensifies the anticipation for “Lost and Found.” The song hints at a potential blend of Simi’s signature sound with the unique styles of her collaborators.

Whether it’s the soulful harmonies with Asa, the smooth rap verses from Ladipoe, or the playful energy brought by Falz, “Lost and Found” promises to be a well-rounded album catering to a wide range of musical preferences.

In an earlier Instagram post, Simi offered a glimpse into the heart of the album. She described “Lost and Found” as a journey of rediscovering her creative spark. The album, according to Simi, is all about reconnecting with her passion for “music, melody, and love stories.” This introspective approach hints at a potentially raw and personal listening experience.

Simi, however, doesn’t want her fans to get too caught up in the backstory. While the creative process might have been significant for her, she encourages listeners to simply enjoy the music itself. She urges them to “enjoy the album without putting too much attention on the circumstances that brought it to them.”

Instead, she hopes that listeners will connect with the emotions she poured into the music. She wants them to “feel all she felt while recording the songs in this masterpiece.”

This heartfelt message suggests that “Lost and Found” is more than just an album; it’s a culmination of creative exploration and raw emotion, waiting to be experienced by the world.
