Her last album R.E.D, came packaged with plenty sauce, but it was however met with a mixed reaction based on expectations fans thought she had failed to deliver on.

I’ve followed Tiwa since her days at X-Fac ...

Flavour dropping another studio album has to be one of those many few things about the industry that makes one trip.

Since his star contributions to Dorobucci, Adaobi, Looku Looku, his fame has only grown. It was only fitting that an album be released to crown his fame after winning the much coveted Next Rated Award at the 2015 Headies albeit in controversial f ...

And it’s even harder now to explain that thing that really makes you tick about Phyno and his artistry in rap. He’s circumscribed his knowledge and skill in mu ...
