New Naija Artistes Making Waves.

In the past few months, most of the songs making waves have been from new Naija artistes. Songs like Morachi's 'Hapuya like dat', Sanchez's 'Pick it up', Stereoman's 'Ekwe'. Beautiful songs from relatively unknown artistes. These guys are blowing our old artistes out of the water...

As a mark of appreciation, I'd like to introduce some of them to y'all. Some, you might have heard about, some, you might not know but be rest assured that these guys and girls are very talented and putting out Naija's 'Baddest' hits at the moment.

That by the way is my younger sis. Fantastic rapper and dancer. Laura will give Ciara a run for her money anyday...for real. You should see her on the dancefloor...incredible! I used to think I could dance...but put me to shame lol. She will put alot of professional dancers to shame...

Anyway, there you have it. Some of Naija new artistes making waves. I know I missed a lot of names, can't know them all, so please feel free to send names of new artistes in Naija who are blowing people away with their songs.

Meanwhile, I watched 'Stomp The Yard', this weekend. A dance movie that features finest black actor ever (ok since Denzel) Colombus Short, Chris Brown, Brian White and Ne yo. It's the best dance movie since 'You Got Served'. Now, I can't make up my mind which movie rocked most. In terms of story line, I'd give it to Stomp The Yard. And in terms of dance sequence, I'll give it to You Got Served. Over all? I can't decide. Those of you who have seen both movies...what do you think? You haven't seen any yet? Go check it out!

Let's know other Naija new artistes making waves.

I agree about the new artist showing themselves. I think 9ice is about to be the next bigest thing out fo naija, mark my words. I just did an interview with him here I have a good eye for these things and I am hardly ever wrong. I predicted 2face was gonna be huge and would crossover with the right management. well I was 90% correct... lol.

Ah so u have a sister that sings. You should let us hear some of her stuff.
