This ought to be our second Nigeria feature if I’m not wrong. Apart from Tanzania, Angola, South Africa and Mali, Nigeria is also one of the countries that has kept their music authentic. If you listen to any player and a Nigerian music comes on, you will identify it spot on! There are so many good artists coming out of the West African state, many who don’t get the recognition they so deserve. With that in mind, we would like to introduce y’all to a very talented act all the way from Kogi State, Northern part of Nigeria. The only time I have been to Kaduna was when i read Half of a Yellow Sun by my favorite author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Today however, we will revisit that part of Africa, musically courtesy of XDogg.
The guy has to be one of the most organized artist I have come across in a while. But that is a story for another day. Let’s talk music. Ever envisioned DJ Mustard’s signature instrumentals with a touch of African percussions? That is exactly what I’m listening. XDogg has a way with his music from the beat selection to the catchy hooks. I have been replying his single Inada Baki for a while since I came across it and it’s worth every second of my time. Whatever Inada Baki means, I could careless, all I know is that even kids are singing along to it on the video! Characteristic clarity that is typical of Nigerian music videos, it is one that you would want to watch and re-watch. Let us know what you think about this great music from Nigeria.
