A four-track stash of balmy Afropop bops, ATOM is light and airy, punctuated by Magixx’s slick vocals. There is a stirring expression of romantic intent atop buttery percussion on “All Over,” while the Afrobeat-inflected party-starter “Weekenjoyment” is an unmissable summons to dance floors. By the time the project rolls on to “Forever,” a throwback to the pomp of ’90s Afropop, Magixx’s homage to romance and good times is complete.
In the months since the release of the Ayra Starr-featuring re-up of 2021’s slow burner “Love Don’t Cost a Dime,” rising Mavin Records act Magixx has metamorphosed from bleeding-heart lover boy to full-on thrill-seeker, swapping the dusky atmosphere of his debut tape for assured displays on “Chocolate” and “Overloading (OVERDOSE).” That confident streak works its way into ATOM, where the singer leans into romantic bliss and financial satisfaction for inspiration.
Omah Lay’s debut album is a pot full of gems. A gifted songwriter, as proven in his several chart topping singles, collaborations and pair of EPs released in 2020—Get Layd and What Have We Done— it remained to be seen if the Nigerian Afro-fusion artist could replicate this success across a full album. Boy Alone’s 14 tracks set any doubts aside. Each track combines biography with fantasy, earnest songwriting and mannered, though seductive singing, whether about heartbreaks or childhood ambitions, carnal pleasures or his bouts with depression.
“I had the worst days of my life recording this album,
“Trust me, I was blocked.” Rather than compartmentalise this turbulent period in favour of fantasy-filled songwriting, the man born Stanley Omah Didia conceded to the music-making acumen which has served him well in the past: mining the highs and lows of success and romantic adventures. “I can’t sing what’s not me,” he explains; “If I’m saying anything in a song, it’s definitely true. The whole idea was to make sure that the album was really sounding the way I felt. I actually lived my reality on the album”. Below, Omah Lay talks us through Boy Alone, track by track.
OMAH LAY – “RECOGNIZE”
I would definitely rep where I’m from every day, man. I’m a full time Port Harcourt boy. With any chance that I get, I’ll mention that. I’ll tell the whole world, every day. I sent it out to a producer called Orlando. He remade everything and we redid the whole thing. It was just supposed to be an interlude with me just talking, as usual, saying the truth, man.”
“OMAH LAY – I”
“This song is about self motivation. In the song, I was referring to myself four or five years ago before I blew up. I used to always look at myself in the mirror and beat my chest and tell myself, ‘You see me, staying in this studio every day and making beats for people and writing songs for people—I will not do this forever. I will grow up someday and I’ll become big’. I travelled back to who I used to be and the things I used to say to myself, and I made the song. Even as a successful artist, people look me in the eye and I see doubts—but they are some of the biggest reasons why I wake up in the morning and I make music. And I want to prove to myself that I am the best, man. I just want to make sure that I clear everybody’s doubts, and I also clear even the little one that’s in my mind.”
“I’m from Port Harcourt and I’m a very bad boy, trust me. Whatever I’m telling you in my song is real, man. It’s a fact. Girls like that vibe that when you tell them to go bend them. My girls like it like that though.”
“I wrote ‘woman’ and I just forgot about the song until someday, somebody in my team brought it out and played it for me and it sounded so fresh. When I sing, ‘Anytime I knack, I knack without rubber band’, I’m not promoting condom-free sex. If you’re married and you don’t want to use a rubber band, you’re good. But if you’re not, man, you’ve got to use a rubber band. For some of my special girls I don’t, and everybody must have that one special person that you can dive without.”
“I’M A MESS”
“In the past one to two years, I don’t know what happened to me, but I feel I just disconnected from myself for a minute. I think it was almost the peak of me not being in the best state of mind, mentally. Everybody’s fucking with the things I’m doing, but my shit doesn’t sound good to me. Drinking is boring. Smoking is boring. Women are boring. Everything in life was boring, man. I just couldn’t find myself. And I think all of these things are just what makes me what I am. But somehow, I went outside the house and started just humming how I was feeling and for some reason, I started saying exactly what was happening with me. I started advising myself, and I added melody. I don’t know how common depression is in the industry, but I think I’ve outgrown this phase of my life.”
“My team is the best for holding me down. ‘temptation’ is that song that I’m singing for my people, my real people. I was in the studio one day trying to finish up one of the songs when the producer [BGRZ] came through and played a bunch of beats. As soon as he played the one for ‘temptation’, my head just opened. Even though I was having the worst time, I have these people that keep me going. I just realised I really needed to talk to them. I needed to tell them what was happening with me, and I needed to appreciate them.”
“This song happened one night when we were just vibing. The producer Tempoe played the beats and I just started pouring out my heart. I was going through a heartbreak and the song is about people you could basically do anything for, but who turn around to betray you at the end. I was in a relationship at the time and my heart broke and things were not right. Things didn’t go smoothly.”
“This is a song that I dedicate to everybody who means a lot to me, who I lost some way, somehow. It’s a song that I dedicated to my late dad. The bit of singing I do in my language Ikwere [from Rivers State, Nigeria] translates to, ‘Wherever you are on this earth, in this world/If you’re hearing my voice, please dance for me.’ I’m actually more highlife than I am Afrobeats fusion. I grew up on artists like Celestine Ukwu, in whose band my grandfather was a percussionist. The highlife music my dad used to play for me is what makes my melodies. So it’s only right that my tribute to him is more highlife influenced.”
“I’m an overthinker, and when I’m all alone, I’m clouded with a lot of stuff. The thing that really helps me escape is touring. Travelling, performing, and watching people dance and sing to my music and be happy is my safe haven. Honestly, as much as people think that I sing about love, women, sex and stuff, I’m not always like that. I’m a very reserved person and I like to protect my energy so much. You got to be worth it for me to actually be with you. I’m very introverted. It’s why I feel like I don’t have a lot of friends. I like my space; I like to keep my circle as small as possible.”
“ATTENTION” [Omah Lay & Justin Bieber]
“Somehow JB and I just have this connection. We talk often, share songs, music and everything via text. During the making of this song was the first time that I did FaceTime with him, and he loved the song and sent back his verse, and that was it. I had just come out of my shell when I wrote the song. I was in a resort in Nigeria for like three months and I didn’t see anybody. I was just really losing my mind, and I wanted to make music about how I felt in those three months of being isolated. As soon as the producer, Harv, played the beat for me when I got to LA, it sounded so much like what I was feeling.”
“‘Soso’ could mean anything to you, but it’s the name of a girl. It’s a Port Harcourt name; a Kalabari girl’s name. When I say, ‘Soso, take my pain away’, I want her to come and dance for me. Let her come and do whatever she can do for me, and take this pain away. She’s not my girl. She’s my friend’s little sister, but she grew up, boom, and she started doing stuff, man. She just grew up on Snapchat and Instagram and just started doing things. The melody on ‘Soso’ is spirit; it’s Highlife. When I listen to those old highlife singers, it feels like they get their melodies from the spirit themselves. And that’s where I always want to tap from. I made sure that I connected with my ancestors.”
“HOW TO LUV”
“I’m an unlucky motherf***er. When it comes to love, it doesn’t work for me. I’m in today, I’m out tomorrow. That’s why I’m looking for someone who could show me how to love.
I don’t know what to call the song either—is it an amapiano song, or house? But you can tell where my head was when you listen to it. Even though it is dance music, there’s still complaints inside.”
“tell everybody” (feat. Tay Iwar)
“I think recording this song was the first time I met Tay Iwar. We just linked and our energy was massive. It was good energy. And when he said that, ‘I used to dream about the stars, that’s why my patience is so low,’ that stuff got me. I took it on from there. We just vibed and everything came. I really was intentional about doing my first album by myself. But Tay, he’s a genius; his music is so good.”
“purple song” “’purple song’ is for my fans, my girls, my family, my people, my day-one people that have been there with me. It’s a toxic song and at the same time it is a love song. I’m talking to somebody who the internet has said a lot of ill things about me to. Somebody who loves me for real, but there’s just so many people saying rubbish about me, talking down on my name. And it’s beginning to register in their mind that, ‘Oh, maybe these people are telling the truth,’ but inside them, they love me for real. And they’re just in between the line of leaving me and moving on or staying. You can also listen to it as a love song.”
The Album is a project inspired by the Holy Spirit, filled with messages of Christ from birth to death and the salvation that came thereof. It is a compilation of messages; That of Hope, Love, Joy, salvation and of gratitude.

Nigerian singer-songwriter Simi’s evolution in the half-decade since she first captured mainstream imagination with “Jamb Question” has been impressive. Simisola, from 2017, combined pop bombast with technical virtuosity, 2019’s Omo Charlie Champagne, Vol. 1 was a stirring reflection on the shifting landscape of her life, and experimental releases like 2020’s RESTLESS II buffed her artistic credentials. On Tbh (To Be Honest)—a project three years in the making—she contemplates love, gratitude, and betrayal with a set of edgy songs that run the gamut of emotions.
“My ultimate goal is not just for the album to be loved,” Simi tells Apple Music. “It’s to create a project that makes me happy and that I want people to hear. I’m happy to be able to express myself exactly the way that I want.”
Indeed, Simi gives in to vivid expressionism here, gleefully calling out haters (“No Joy”), revisiting her origins (“Story Story”), and pondering the essence of life in tandem with husband Adekunle Gold (“Balance”). Read on as she takes us through Tbh (To Be Honest), track by track.
“This is a summary of my journey in music—the sacrifices I made and the things I’ve learned along the way, and just basically saying, ‘I worked really hard to be here.’ I remember when I first broke into the industry, a lot of people thought I came from nowhere, but this is me showing them that time and energy has gone into the career for where I am now.”
“‘Born Again’ was produced by Blaise. This is talking about how I’m trying to be a better person, and me trying to learn more, just shedding bad energy, shedding the old, unnecessary stuff. As the name implies, ‘Born Again’ is being something not just different, but better. I’m asking for grace for the process as well.”
“This was one of the last two songs that I wrote—and it came so easily. It was produced by P. Priime. I asked him to send me some beats, and this was the one that I connected to, so I just recorded on that one. He tried to add more stuff, but I told him no because I wanted it to just stay simple. That was the feel I was going for—I love how it’s so soft. It’s obviously a sensual song, but it’s still so subtle. It’s not crass to listen to. I just really like the way it makes me feel.”
“Loyal” (feat. Fave)
“‘Loyal’ is inspired by an experience that I had. I don’t have a lot of close friends, but my friends are really important to me, and I expect that for you to be in my circle, I can trust you. I had a situation with one of my friends where I felt pretty betrayed and let down, and I felt like it would be nice to put them in their place. I’m just talking about how I want to know if you’re loyal to me. I don’t settle for backhanded friendships. I loved Fave’s verse as well. It’s really calm, but it’s also so intense, and I really love how we just flow together on the beat.”“‘Loyal’ is inspired by an experience that I had.

“Balance” (feat. Adekunle Gold)
“This is a feature with Adekunle, and his verse is on point, as is mine. One of the reasons why I like ‘Balance’ is that it’s a song about everything—not about anything specific, but it’s still saying so much. It’s talking about how life is so unpredictable. Sometimes the things you expect are not what you get, and sometimes you get something more than you expect. Nobody can really predict, so basically, just balance yourself.”
“This is such a vibe. It has an Afrobeats plus highlife bounce to it, and I
just love the way that song makes me feel because it’s so easy. It’s just so groovy, and it’s like a love song, but it’s not sappy. It’s playful. It was one of the first songs that I wrote on the album because I’d just given birth and I was just testing my pen game and I realized that it was still tight.”
“Easy” (feat. Deja)
“This is very similar to ‘Balance,’ and also produced by Blaise. You can try and try, but in this life, there’s just a lot of happenings, and sometimes things don’t work, but just take it easy. Try to enjoy your life as much as you can in the space and the time that you have. Breathe, take time. Enjoy the process. Don’t obsess about the outcome.”
“This song is dedicated to and inspired by haters. You know how people go on social media and say whatever they want to say because they can? We are often told to be the bigger person and not say anything which isn’t nice. But sometimes, if you can’t say something back, and you’re recording an album, why not do that? At that point, I was very angry about something that happened, and I took all that energy and anger I was feeling, and I made a song.”
“I really like ‘Temper’ because it was so interesting for me to write based on the style of writing: the bounce. It’s me bragging. It’s just me asking things and being out with it. Check my talent. Check my vibe. Just check me. It’s just a very chill, bragging, big-boy, big-girl song, and I really enjoyed writing it.”
“This was the last song that I wrote on the album. It’s just a vibe. It’s basically saying, ‘This is me. I’m not a settler. If I’m doing something, I’m doing it because that’s exactly what I want to do.’ ‘Nobody’ is just saying I don’t settle for anybody, period. I don’t manage, and that’s on God.”
“Love for Me”
“‘Love for Me’ is dedicated to all Nigerians. We tend to be spiritual people, and this is a song just thanking God for my experiences and for my blessings and for everything and all the great things in my life and learning from all the mistakes and all the things that I similarly do not have. You can call it a gospel song. It’s also an ode to my old Simi fans. They’re going to love this song because it’s very in tune or aligned with my early music, but I loved doing this one. Another story about this song is that my mother-in-law was telling me that she thought I should do a song just thanking God for everything. She didn’t know I already had plans for that, but when I was moving this album around and everything, I might have removed this song if she didn’t say anything. Hearing her say that just solidified my decision to leave this song on the album.”
The fifth studio album from maverick singer, actor, and rapper Falz opens with thumping bass. It is the sound of “Another Me,” on which he unveils his falsetto as he raps about love, sex, and their many interpolations. The rapper, known for either his socially conscious music or his humorous take on issues, dips his feet into the experimental waters of Nigeria’s nostalgia-driven alté sound. From “All Night” to “Beautiful Sunflower” and “Pull Up”—where he is addicted enough to confess, “You are assassin, but I’m craving your company”—Falz the activist turns Falz the full-time sinner. But it is hard to keep Falz the joker locked in, and that witty side resurfaces in full force on “Woman,” a highlife tune with The Cavemen., as he raps, “She dey do my body justice like magistrate,” while the brothers sing of sexual healing.
BAHD is his first album project for the year 2022 after a successful release of his previous single titled “Ice Cream“, which he featured Buju (BNXN).
The album titled “BAHD“, consists of 12 solid tracks with features from Tiwa Savage, Buju (BNXN), Timaya, Chike, L.A.X, The Cavemen. and Boy Spyce.
