Hello nerds and nerdesses, welcome to the Osai Effect

Christmas is already around the corner and the end of the year is already in sight. We already dropped our own Christmas list a while back and so this time we’re giving you some select Tunes From Way Back. The songs on our playlist today are what we call Evergreen. Pure, indigenous African music dredged from the edge of an era. These are songs one can enjoy any day, anytime! Play them for your folks and we can guarantee you would put a smile on their faces 😉 Without further ado, let’s jump right in!

This week, we have at number 5 a lovely track from the late 90s. Although not exactly an evergreen, we are however quite sure some of us remember the song and can appreciate it. We give y’all Love Me Jeje by Seyi Sodimu!

At number 4 we have a track a number of us must have rocked and danced to growing up. The intro and instrumentals remain distinctive and awesome. A true evergreen song and a wonderful track out of our dear Mother Africa, we give y’all Gaou by Magic System!

Although this may not be in the same category as the rest of the other songs, we just could not skip this song. This is a song that is so full of pomp and beautiful lyrics. Very slow yet danceable, very unique and lovely. We give y’all Prayer for the Youth by Lágbájá!

Making the number 2 spot this week is one of the very definitions of evergreen. A massive hit in the  80s and 90s, a great, great song by our very own Mike Okri. Here he is with Omoge!

And finally, at our number 1 spot is the man referred to as Independence Child. The father of Zigima music, a son of the soil, a wonderful musician. We are ecstatic to give you Because of English by our very own Bright Chimezie!

Around Town

Hello nerds and nerdesses, welcome to The Osai Effect

The Osai Effect Breaker

Around Town is a segment where we bring y’all cool things happening around us in a cool way. There are so many wonderful and brilliant stuff that never get to the limelight or even online and as we know, a good online presence can be the turning point of someone’s career (ask Justin Beiber). We know not everyone has the resources to do so or the time perhaps, but we do and we want them to grow and we want to keep you informed 😀

TOWN

OK, enough gist.

This week we have a string of ceiling murals in Ibadan, Nigeria. When we saw this for the first time it was surreal, like something out of a novel. One hardly comes across murals that are so rich  and colourful and especially not on the ceiling! If you’re in Ibadan, head to 151 Adamasingba Shopping Complex and walk down the corridor. These guys are awesome!
