Music: The Vibe According To… Nonso Amadi and Khalid

Nono Amadi (@Nonso_A) When the 21 year-old, Nigerian-Canadian (Canadian-Nigerian) released “Radio” produced by Juls I just had a feeling that 2017 will turn out to be this young man’s year. My Twitter TL is a testament to this. I discovered his music by chance, last summer, while watching the Nigerian web series “Discovering ABJ” (episode 5) by Nappy Media. Thankfully his music was Shazam-able and available on iTunes and Soundcloud. I ended up downloading his songs “Tonight” and “Gele” and if you follow me on Snapchat, you would have heard me play these songs a couple times. Check out his song “Radio” and enjoy his laid-back-Naija-RnB sound. Khalid (@thegreatkhalid) Another young artist, at 18 is Khalid. This guy’s voice is very mature (if that’s a way to describe someone’s vocal ability). I stumbled on his music by way of Twitter-ville and his song “Saved” was added to my Soundcloud playlist immediately. Having heard his other songs on YouTube (“Coaster” is repeat worthy 👌🏾), I will be getting his album, “American Teen“, due to be released 3rd March 2017. I’m …

Music: What I’ve Been Listening To

When I started this blog I expressed how much I enjoy music and realised I haven’t kept up to date with my music updates. So here it is! I’ve listed a few things that I’ve been listening to since starting my blog! Should you want to know more about my musical interests I’m also on SoundCloud so follow me there as I follow and listen to other people [I’m not a musician] and find me on Tumblr where I post a lot more music! When it comes to music I have a 5 second beat & vocal rule – if I’m not feeling the song within that time, I may fast-forward the clip to hear more – if I believe there’s hope of me liking the song accompanied by a little YouTube research, most likely I will buy it. Do you have a rule for buying music? Let me know on Twitter @OlayideM #MyMusicRule.

Music: Allen Stone

About April last year my best friend and I were on our way to the Jazz Cafe to watch Allen Stone perform. My friend didn’t know much about him, so she was a bit apprehensive about it all and warned me that he better be good! Well let’s just say we screamed like little girls, giggled and woo’d all night [she did most of the noise making]. Thanks to YouTube, you can also enjoy what we did that night.
