MUSIC is Our LAnguage.... Whats playing in Abuja's Ears.....

MUSIC IS OUR LANGUAGE.

No matter your state of mind, music always makes it better.
I find myself working better with music; I find my mood lifted with music. Nothing beats it. Many argue that music is getting worse, well ill say whatever works for you. But for me it gets more beautiful depending on your taste and whom you are listening to.

So I decided to bring a little somethin’ somethin’ for our readers on What’s Hot Right Now. “What’s Playing In Abuja’s Ears, Top 10 Naija (Opinion) and What’s Playing in City Crawler’s Ears (Recommended Listening).

So Whats Playing in Abuja’s Ears?

City crawler spoke to one of Abuja’s finest radio Personality’s, Mr. Benny Ark to find out the top 10 most requested songs on radio. Benny is not only a lover of music but a seasoned On Air host of the Good Morning Nigeria show on Cool FM where he has been jockeying for 6years. According to Benny, Tuface Idibia is the best Nigerian artist right now.
TOP 10
1. Give Me Everything – Pitbull Ft Neyo
2. Man Down – Rihanna
3. Set Rain To The Fire – Adele
4. Party Rock Anthem – Lmfao Ft Lauren
5. Pakuromo – Wizkid
6. Just Cant Get Enough – Black Eye Pea
7. Love Me Love Me – Tiwa Savage
8. Look At Me Now – Chris Brown Ft Busta Rhymes
9. Man Unkind – Tuface Idibai
10. Me and you – bracket.

Mr. Andy Madaki is a UK based young Nigerian who is a music lover. Andy constantly has music playing updates on blackberry messenger and I usually visualize him on the train playing with his pen and note pad with head phones on. Andy recently posted an interesting reply to an article on 234next that put down contemporary Nigerian music (check out his post here http://andytrueword.blogspot.com/2011/07/random-rambling-series-let-music-play.html ). City crawler sought Andys opinion of the top 10 naija songs right now. His take…..

1. Salute – Shank
2. Jooh Oh – Jah Bless Ft Ice Prince
3. Forever – Psquare
4. Angeli – Vector Ft 9ice
5. Wad Up – Wizkid Ft D’prince
6. Attention – 2shot Ft Brymo
7. 5 & 6 – Neato C
8. Superstar – Ice Prince
9. Obianuju – Duncan Mighty
10. Pakuruma - Whizkid



Finally, I am very eclectic in my music choices. I’m not really big on What’s hot. I buy an album, listen to it and pick out my best songs. These songs have had airplay for a while, but if you haven’t heard them yet, I recommend you listen, cos this is what’s Playing in City Crawlers ears right now.

1. Price Tag – Jesse J
2. Windeck – Cabo Snoop
3. Man Down – Rihanna
4. Share My Blessing – Neato C
5. Marry You And Count On Me – Bruno Mars
6. Breath – Superchick (Gospel, Also Check Out Hill Song)
7. Port Harcourt Boy – Duncan Mighty
8. Loke Loke – Mo’cheddah
9. Superstar – Ice Prince
10. Run The World – Beyonce

  7. Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!
