Nollywood sensation and Pop artist Tonto Dikeh sits down with Toolz on The Juice

Location Recording & Audio Post by The Site Studios

Tonto Dikeh is sometimes referred to as the “wild child” of Nollywood. Since getting her first break on the reality show The Next Movie Star, Tonto hasn’t looked back.

She has continued to challenge the norm with her attitude to Nollywood, taking on increasingly risqué roles, and pushing back barriers. 

Her recent foray into the music industry has caused somewhat of a storm since most reviews were far from positive.

We will let you decide for yourselves. For more on Tonto check follow her on twitter and in the woman’s own words -“Whoeva said success was a slow process was defiantly not talking abt Mii”

HAPPY WEEKEND "SAH"

This morning whilst driving to work, I found myself bumping along to a funny and very clever Nigerian hip-hop song, which I found out, was by the Hip-hop duo known as Show Dem Camp or SDC.

The song was called “Happy weekend” and it told the story of car park attendants, and traffic officers around the country, complete with the excessive hailing and praise that follows any motorists attempting to park at any business or party location in Lagos. It really is quite clever; however anyone who knows of SDC knows that they have built their own unique brand of hip-hop by being socially conscious and drawing from topics which the masses can relate to.

However, it got me thinking about some other music tracks that have enjoyed fairly steady airplay in the first quarter of 2014:

Surulere- Dr. Sid ft Don Jazzy

Aye- Davido

Johnny- Yemi Alade

Girlie O- Patoranking

Oritse Femi- Double Wahala

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoayYeEcqO0

Anifowose- Olamide ft KWAM 1

Something these songs have in common is that Like “Happy Weekend”, they talk about simple human interactions:

From recognizing the rewards of patience and perseverance in “Surulere” to remembering the playboy “Johnny” that so many women have had experience with;

From serenading the “ Girlie O” and trying to save her from a bad relationship to reminding people in a fantastic sample of “ Double Wahala” that how a person lives their life, is not anyone else’s concern.

Nigerians in every increasing numbers are downloading, viewing and requesting these songs on their local radio stations.

Why?

My theory is quite simple: by our nature and circumstances of our Nation, Nigerians are incredibly aspirational and romantic people. We love a good story with a happy ending. We live in a country where beggars from the day before can become the statesmen of tomorrow.

We understand that life is hard, but refuse to lay down and accept our fate; Truth be told, Nigerians are some of the most optimistic people in the world and when Artistes tap into this psyche with beats and lyrics that relate to the masses, it makes for brilliant music.

From that point on simply throw in samples from Legends like Fela Anikulapo kuti and King Wasiyu Ayinde Marshal and in a time where African music is under enormous critics, for a lack of content, you may just have created a classic.

This possible pattern could mean that with the growth of the African music Industry, Africans are becoming well and truly tired of Artists who do not understand them or their story.  We are happy for those who now drive Porsche cars and have cribs all over the world, but the guy on the road is concerned with how to make his small Naira stretch and whether his girlfriend will forgive him for the silly comment he made the day before.

So far in 2014, Artists that connect with their listeners through lyrical content assisted with a great beat are winning, and that’s a trend I can totally get behind.

If you haven’t already, give your music libraries and playlists a dose of happiness by mixing in these tracks because in a few years these songs just might be classics; and let us know: which Artists are you loving at the moment?

Happy Weekend!
