YemiAladeTop Afro-pop singer, Yemi Alade, has said that she might never do a music project with fellow Nigerian star Tiwa Savage.

The most popular Nigerian songstresses who have amassed influence worldwide may never collaborate because of the “troubles” from their fans.

In an interview with a popular TV station, Alade said a collaboration might not attract positive reactions from the public, reported Daily Post Nigeria.

Tiwa SavageyNigerian-born artist Tiwa Savage widely regarded as the African Beyonce has released her new single, ’49-99′, via Motown Records.

Since signing her deal international deal with Universal Music Group the explosive track will be her first release with Motown Records which serves as her US label.

While utterly infectious, ’49-99′ makes a powerful statement about poverty. Tiwa Savage explains, ’49-99′ is a term coined from the hard life many Nigerians go through. A transit bus serves as a case study. It ought to have only 49 seated passengers, however, due to poor economic conditions, we often have nearly twice that number of passengers standing (99).”

We can’t sit on our old glories and expect things to change for the better. ‘49-99’ also addresses some political leaders who, instead of focusing on the growth of a nation, are there just for the money and having affairs with underage girls – while the citizenry is hustling hard to make a daily living,” added the 39-year-old.

MAGIX ENGA RELEASES BAMI FT KHALIGRAPH JONES

Magix Enga Ft. Khaligraph Jones ShidaMega producer Magix Enga is making big moves.

His first release ‘Bami’ featuring Khaligraph Jones shot to the trending list upon its release yesterday (30.07.2019). The track which sees ‘Superman’ rapper drop some lyrical gems in dhuluo is an easy listen, with a great beat. With a fusion of afrobeats and reggaeton, Magix casts a magical spell with his laid back vocals complimenting the sound of the track.

This is not the first time Magix Enga and Khaligraph Jones have worked together. The award-winning rapper has continued to forge a relationship with the young producer, making some mega-hit tracks including the underrated July 2018 release ‘Shida‘ as well as on the chart-topper ‘Kiboko’  a collab between Khaligraph Jones and Masauti.

The change in direction for Magix Enga signals a new chapter for the producer who is often behind the scenes of the musical process. Now a respected name within the region’s music industry, Magix Enga is expected to sour as an artist and grow exponentially as a producer.

The track might be just another track dedicated to a woman’s ‘ass’-ets; but it definitely worth a listen.
