Hey Guys,

Happy New Year again..

Having a great year yet? Well, yes I am… It’s another Friday and it’s time for this week’s Old school track. Today we are doing another reggae track and we are throwing it back to the early 90s! Ladies and gents, I give you ‘Rosie’ by Blackky..

BLACKKY

If you grew up in Nigeria in the 90s, then you most likely know this one! It was one of the tracks off the reggae artists’ ‘About Tyme’ album. I listened to this song again after a long long time and it still sounded real fresh in my ears.

Enjoy this great evergreen sound below!

Hey you guys!

And you thought we were going to forget the #OldSchoolFriday again this week… No way! I’m so sorry I couldn’t bring you a track last week.

So like two Fridays ago, I was at the Afropolitan Vibes concert (the IG followers already know this!. Anyway when Adebantu announced a surprise act was coming up, I couldn’t have guessed! Oi! oi! i almost choked while screaming when he called the name Majek Fashek! The performance was electrifying. People screamed like crazy (the man still get am for body). He is doing very very well, and performed some of his evergreen tracks. I also ran into him like two days ago an he was a perfect gentleman! Anyway, I was motivated by all these; to make his ‘Send down the Rain’ our #OldSchoolFriday track for this week.

Enjoy this evergreen reggae track below!

Thanks for stopping by guys!

Merry Christmas!

Love, Yemisi!

 

 

Here’s to another part of me- Alternative Music

Hey guys,

How are you all doing? Hmm.. Many know me, many don’t!

So I’m Yemisi. Some know me from the girlstayinggorge.wordpress.com blog where I blog about my style, makeup, hair and that kind of stuff. Others know me from izzy-randomstuffs.blogspot.com (I haven’t been there in a whileeeeee) where i just write down every kind of thing that comes to my head. Oh well..

This is yet another part of me.. Music!!! I love music. Even though I can’t read a musical note to save my life, I love to sing, I love to listen, I love to dance.

I believe Nigeria has a truck load of music to offer the world, I’m delighted that we are exploring the afro hip-hop side of things but I also know that the potential that Nigerian alternative music has to offer is hugeeeee!

And that’s why I have started this blog. Let’s talk about Naija Jazz, Soul, Folk, Reggae, Rock (Yes, there are Nigerian Rock Bands), Acoustic Covers and everything alternative music! Let’s make this the place to find it all! Let’s view, let’s review! Lets share the music!

I’m totally excited about this ladies and gentlemen.. So excited! And I hope I can be as constant as possible.

So here’s to us loving the music TOGETHER
