Put That Song On Replay

For the second edition of 'Put That Song On Replay' I've decided to honour the shining stars of Afrobeats and so in no particular order...

P Square - Danger
P Square have duo-handily put Afrobeats on the map - they have proved that hard work and perfecting your craft pays off. Paul and Peter Okoye (P Square) are up there with Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade as one of Nigeria's hottest exports. 

Dewaves - Owo (Money)
This has a very, very, very catchy hook which is always a good thing. Like most songs we hear, 'Owo' (Money) is about getting paid, getting girls and popping champagne.

Wande Coal - You Bad ft. D'Banj
Wande Coal has arrived and he has brought a couple bangers with him. With tracks such as 'Bumper 2 Bumper', 'Who Born The Maga' and 'Taboo' his album Mushin2Mohits is set to be a chart topper. If not I'm sure his nude pictures on Twitter have done enough to keep him relevant until he drops his new album.
NOTE: The link above is to the story about the nude photos not the nude photos.

Jaywon - Gbon Gbon Gbon ft. Terry G
This song has been on my iPod for less than a week and so far I've listened to it 76 times - yes, 76 times (and counting). What can I say this song is a delight to listen to and it's even better to dance to.

Olu Maintain - Yahooze
If you haven't heard this song by now, I really need to ask you, "Where have you been?" This song (although it's based around the notion of fraud) is a certified banger. 'Yahooze' is so popular that even Colin Powell couldn't help but throw up his hands and join Olu Maintain on stage at the Royal Albert Hall in 2008.
