Cardi B touched down Nigeria excited on Friday as she is set to perform at the Eko Hotels and Suites on December 7, 2019, for the first time.

The American female rapper flew in excited, twerking to her remix of DMW boss, Davido’s song “Fall” in a video she posted while on the plane.

In the Video Cardi B was excited coming to Nigeria. She went on to caption the video with a quote announcing her trip to Africa, saying:

“1:03 am drop my KK in NY on my way to Afrriiiiicaaaaaaaaaa baybeeeee!!!!!!”

Her excitement went sour as she checked into her hotel room, covering her nose with a scarf. Furthermore, posting a video online comparing Nigeria to the Dominican Republic, with the epileptic power supply and lousy infrastructure in common.

The video was made while she was taking a short tour around Lagos state, showing the not-so-impressive infrastructure while she stated: “we are in the mother f*cking Nigeria, No light, this sh*t looks like the Dominican Republic.”

The Lyrical Era Re-sprouts

Fireboy x Joeboy

Among the several evolutions taking place in the Nigerian entertainment industry, the music sector has passed through many eras.
The 80s and 90s were filled with lyrically inclined songs, no matter the genre. Artists were known for their heavy lyrics, which appealed to people at that time.


Y2k birthed a new era of “very” commercial music; an era, musicians took little effort in writing as much as a themed verse.
A musician only needed to be intoxicated and equipped with the latest sound effects and a groovy beat to the awe of music lovers.
Some artists from the 90s adjusted to this trend thereby creating and expanding their fan base.


Then a pandemic happened; rebuilding tolerance amongst impatient music lovers who now had ample time to accommodate verbose lyrics due to idleness caused by the “stay at home” order in 2020.
New artists like Fireboy DML, Joeboy, and Omah Lay immediately set the pace with their lyrically verbose tunes, for old artists who wanted to remain relevant.
Presently a song without meaningful lyrics won’t be a hit.

Queen Bey’s Eldest Child Receives BET Award at the Age of 7

Published

on

At a very young age (7), Blue Ivy has already been recognized and praised for her work with her mother on the new “Lion King” soundtrack. Blue Ivy first featured on Beyonce’s heartfelt video for the powerful song “Spirit”. This very same song from Disney’s “The Lion King” has already received a Grammy nomination or two for the upcoming year, 2020.

A few weeks ago, Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy, received her very first award. Specifically, the Carter’s eldest child took home The Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award from BET’s Soul Train Awards. Believe it or not, the 7-year-old is actually one of the co-writers of the hit song that is apart of the “Lion King” soundtrack, “Brown Skin Girl”. Blue Ivy shares this award with other artists that collaborated with her on the track such as Nigerian artist, Wizkid, Guyanese artist, SAINt JHN, and no artist other than Beyoncé herself. Blue Ivy both leads and concludes “Brown Skin Girl” with her vocals.

Additionally, “Brown Skin Girl” from Disney’s “The Lion King” was nominated for another award. The song was nominated for the best collaboration at the 2019 BET Soul Train Awards. On the other hand, Chris Brown and Drake’s “No Guidance” swopped in for the title, including other award-winning titles at the 2019 Soul Train Awards, such as the best dance performance, AND the song of the year.

There are no worries, for “Brown Skin Girl” has been getting the recognition it deserves on additional platforms, such as the Billboard Charts. “The Lion King” track at hand has landed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, earning Blue Ivy Carter her first-career entry on the Hot 100. “Brown Skin Girl” from Beyoncé’s ‘The Lion King: The Gift’ album debuted at No. 76 this past July. The whole album itself had placed as high as No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

Listeners and fans alike all take to “Brown Skin Girl” being that it praises dark-skinned and brown-skinned females for the way they are created. The song is designed to make these types of individuals know their worth – to make young girls and women of color hold their heads up high and embrace their uniqueness, culture, and beauty. The message of the song can be easily distinguished through lyrics such as “There’s complexities in complexion, but your skin, it glow like diamonds…Took everything in life, baby know your worth, I love everything about you from your nappy curls, to every single curve, your body natural…”, and the chorus itself. On the whole, this song is a must-listen for those who need a confidence boost, for those who need to know the value and greatness of ‘black’ women, or/and those who simply want to listen to Blue Ivy’s voice (or any other artist in the song).
