This New Music Friday, PBA brings you new music from all artistes from all over the world. Davido, Falz, Odumodublck, Lil Kesh, and Ajebo Hustlers all have new songs and albums for our entertainment.
Let’s get into this New Music Friday playlist:
LIL KESH – “GOOD BAD BOY”
On “Good Bad Boy,” Lil Kesh opts for tongue-in-cheek humour as he calls out an unnamed woman who has a list of qualities that her potential spouse must have. Shuffling between rapping and singing, Lil Kesh makes clear his grouse with such women. “She said a gangster will break heart/And a church boy is not enough/She wants a gangster that is a pastor/She wants all in one,” he sings. “Good Bad Boy” is a catchy tune that should delight fans of the former YBNL star.
ODUMODUBLVCK – “DECLAN RICE”
Odumodublvck is having a moment. After signing to NATIVE Records and Def Jam Recordings last year, the Nigerian artist has been cultivating a loyal following and generating buzz across the internet. His debut single of 2023 “Declan Rice” finally arrives off the back of the impressive “Picanto” and co-signs from important figures in the music industry. Odumodublvck is gradually creating a great legacy for himself. With tracks such as “Declan Rice’, the rapper portraying his vocal abilities and writing skills to the music community.
FALZ FT VECTOR – “YAKUBU”
Nigerian lyrical genius, Falz comes through with a new sparkling remedy tagged, Yakubu. The song features vocal input from Vector, who gave a top-notch performance on the latest catalog, specially curated and seasoned to cater to every demography of listeners.
The two heavyweight vocal wordsmiths, Falz and Vector made this record after Nigeria had its Presidential election on the 25th of February 2023, where the ruling party has shown us that their structures are nothing but disenfranchisement schemes, threats, violence, and outright rigging.
However, the tune follows up after his record called, ‘Owa’, featuring Tekno, addressing multiple issues currently plaguing the country, from fuel scarcity to cash scarcity, police brutality, and more. It’s clear that Falz put a lot of time and effort into crafting this socio-political conscious music, and the end result is always impressive.

After following up their acclaimed ‘Kpos Lifestyle Vol. 1’ tape with ‘Bad Boy Etiquette’, they’ve been on features with Ajebutter22 and now, have debuted in 2023 with “You Go Know”. Delivered in their signature wit and wisdom, it’s a reflective number which casts life lessons in a new light. “In case you never know, na today you go know,” sings Piego on the hook.
