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!
Hello nerds and nerdesses, welcome to The Osai Effect!
This beautiful Friday, we are starting three new sections (can you believe that?) viz: App of the Week, Game of the Week and our Weekend Playlist. Enjoy!
NB: Download links are not added to some of these songs because of copyright issues. Active download links may be found on Google.
Ok, we all love music and sometimes it may be a bit hard getting decent songs to listen to while we tweet or play games or chat or go about our daily activities. Well, worry no more! The Osai Effect has got ya covered for the weekend!
Starting at number 5: We discovered this song on YouTube a couple of days back and it was absolutely brilliant! The singing coupled with the electro/techno effects were absolutely awesome and we are pleased to announce our first number 5 as Pentatonix with Daft Punk!
Watch their video on YouTube too http://goo.gl/Z0djMf
At number 4 we have another electro/techno sound. We discovered these guys on Mtv haha. We suggest that you listen to this song with bass boost earphones as this tune is certified to let the beat drop. We have Pascal & Pearce – Desperado (Feat LCNVL) at number 4! Watch their video on YouTube http://goo.gl/o7R9Ue
Cracking our top 3, we have a song that has already achieved mega success already but still, this has got to be on our weekend playlist. We have none other than Drake with Hold On We’re Going Home (Feat Majid Jordan) Watch on YouTube! http://goo.gl/FCf7MA
At number 2 we have a sensation, a great song and a wonderful video. Coming off her latest album, we have the controversial, classy, mama Monster, Lady Gaga with Applause. Damn this track is awesome! Watch on YouTube! http://goo.gl/UihXxu
And that’s it for the weekend playlist…oh wait, our number one song hehe
Our number one song is a short, beautiful and wonderful song by a great Nigerian artiste. His name is LSMK, and he’s at number 1 with Welcome to the World! Download here http://goo.gl/R8WsOo
