Nigeria is the home of great African music with each day bringing new music to your playlist. 
The past week saw great hits by lovable Naija artists rock the airwaves in a big way. Here is the latest new Naija music you should add to your playlist this week. 

Ojapiano – KCEE
With the development of the distinctive sound and genre known as ‘Ojapiano,’ KCEE is poised to revolutionise Nigeria’s music industry.  In this single, the Igbo singer combines Amapino and sounds from Igbo people's traditional flute, known as ""Oja"". 


All Over You – Guchi
With her mellow voice, Guchi enlists producer Shugavybz in this scintillating production which she delivers with a lot of passion. ‘All Over You’ is deeply perfect and colours romance all over it. 

Mon Bébé – Guchi

For ""Mon Bébé,"" Kaelbeatz creates a raging instrumental storm that sums up her double song release as a follow up to ‘Purple Diary’, a six-track project. ‘Mon Bebe’ samples a different sound.

Nwayi – Ckay

Following the success of his most recent hit song, ""Hallelujah"" with Blaqbonez, CKay has now released a new song titled ""Nwayi.""
This new single has a fluid fusion of Pop and R&B with Emo-pop melodies and Igbo lyrics which add to the flavor of the song. 

New Religion – Olamide ft Asake

The Asake influence is all over this song with Amapiano beat and seamless Hip Hop and Neo Fuji fusion. Olamide and Asake pay tribute to Blackface, The Remedies, and 2baba in this single co-produced by Bbanks and Magicsticks.

Sittin’ On Top of The World – Burna Boy

With ""Sittin' On Top Of The World’ as his first single of 2022, Burna Boy departs from his Afrobeats signature.
He uses yet another great R&B vibe on this song with Brandy's ""On Top Of The World"" as a sample, giving ‘Sittin’ On Top of The World’ a distinctly R&B vibe. 

Vibration – Basil

Basil's remarkable vocals, which have a certain tone that immediately capture the listener's attention, sum up ""Vibration."" The outcome is an unstoppable Afro-pop musical experience, enhanced by beautiful melodies expertly curated to only give the best of his talent.
