#BumpThis: Cobhams’ “We Plenti” & Zlatan’s “Quilox”

January 6, 2020

There’s so much new music being released that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to wade through the trash to find the gems. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a Friday series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.


Cobhams Asuquo — “We Plenti” ft. Simi

While Cobhams’ songs rarely get any real mainstream love — he actually releases a lot more music than people realise — they are consistently impressive. That’s the case with his new Simi-assisted single, “We Plenti”.

On the thoughtful track, both stars sing about being patient and waiting for your time to come. Cobhams rarely collaborates with other artists, but we’re glad he did because Simi helps elevate the already solid effort.

Zlatan — “Quilox”

Nigerian artists rarely drop party-starters at the beginning of the year, but it seems Zlatan didn’t get the memo, as he’s now kicked things off with his infectious new single, “Quilox”.

On the track, which has the same manic energy as Zlatan’s biggest hits, the rapper advises listeners to hustle so they won’t suffer. While not exactly groundbreaking, it’s a solid first single from the hitmaking star.
