This Week On My Playlist Ep. 8: This is What Happens When You Procrastinate
*I wrote this months ago and in my quest to perfect my next post.... well, all I can say is I still felt the need to share this music so read, comment and share!*
I have a belief that at some point humanity became madly obsessed with shiny new things, and began to neglect the old(er).... On the surface of it... who cares? Well I do. New is nice, but experience is better. Experience in music means you can create new beginnings, so this week is a nod to all those who continue to re-invent themselves(and sometimes the wheel) musically, finding a way to stay present. I love a new beginning...enjoy these:
Omawunmi Is a Nigerian Superstar. To those familiar with the Nigerian music scene her's is a name that inspires musical confidence in others, because " warri no dey carry last". In this brand new video, Omawunmi once more distinguishes herself from the pack of artists who would use loud beats and flashy costumes to amplify what little musical talent they have. This woman is head and shoulders above many and the song appropriately gives me butterflies...doesn't it do that for you?
You May be forgiven for not knowing Lady Jay, but you'll feel silly if you don't rectify that now. A veteran in the industry it's taken her a while but the era of "Trapzonto" is here and Lady Jay is in her element. Teaming up with the impressive producer that is Kuvie, Lady Jay's repertoire is impressive and she continues to push. I happen to know she has a large body of yet unreleased work and in the Era where content is king, Lady Jay is fit for a crown.
