18. “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” by Shawn Mendes

Shawn’s hit is all about the craziness of love and Valentine’s Day is just that.

In this song, they talk about how close they came to falling in love and having the real deal. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen so they are in that awkward area of what could’ve been and what wasn’t.

23. “Little of Your Love” by Haim

Most romantic lyric: “Oh, with a little strength baby, Oh I’ll never let you down”. Haim is a band made of 3 sisters who have a really unique sound.

This song will definitely get the “groove” going this Valentine’s Day.

27. “Thinkin’ Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran

Most romantic lyric: “Baby your smile’s in my mind and memory”. Possibly one of the most romantic songs literally EVER written, Ed Sheeran makes our hearts explode every time we hear this bop. The simplicity of his vocals and the guitar give room for the magical lyrics to shine. Hands down one of the best representations of Valentine’s Day in a song.

28. “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” by Meghan Trainor ft. John Legend

Most romantic lyric: “I won’t take you for granted”. We didn’t know it at the time, but this duet is all we need in life. Meghan and John KILLED this song by portraying the fragile element of time.

American Singer, Stevie Wonder, Moving To Ghana Permanently

Published

on

American famous singer and pianist, Stevie Wonder, is believed to be planning a radical decision to relocate to Ghana permanently.

The legendary singer told Oprah Winfrey on her show that he is “fed up with the racial injustice in America and would rather relocate to a place where he will be respected and feel welcome.”

The “I just called to say I love you” hitmaker said he cannot watch his great-grandchildren beg for respect and recognition,” according to Business Insider.

“I want to see the nation smile again, and I want to see it before I move to Ghana,” he told Oprah. “I’m going to do that. I’m going to move permanently to Ghana.”

“Because I don’t want to see my children’s children’s children have to say ‘Oh please, like me. Please respect me. Please value me. What kind of sh*t is that?”

He added: “I want the world to get better. I want us to get beyond this place. I want us all to go to the funeral of hate. That’s what I want.”

This is not the first time the 70-year-old has said that he will relocate to Ghana. In 1994 Stevie Wonder said he wanted to move from Los Angeles to Ghana.

Speaking at the International Association of African American Music in Washington at the time, he said he fell in love with Ghana during visits. Stevie Wonder said, “There’s more of a sense of community there.”

He is considered one of the most successful songwriters and musicians of all time.

Fela Kuti Only African Nominated For 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Published

on

Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Nigerias legendary Afrobeat musician who died 24 years ago has been nominated for induction in the 2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The late maverick musician was on Wednesday, February 10, 2021, nominated for induction in the 2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside 15 other international artistes or bands comprising Mary J. Blige, Kate Bush, Devo, Foo Fighters, The Go-Go’s, Iron Maiden, Jay-Z, Chaka Khan, Carole King, LL Cool J, New York Dolls, Rage, Against The Machine, Todd Rundgren, Tina Turner and Dionne Warwick. 

This is the first time Fela is being nominated to the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Usually, fans will vote for up to five nominees daily from the day of announcement, February 10 till April 30, 2021 via the Rock Halls website.

Winners of the nomination will be inducted in May 2021 at the 36th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio.

To be considered eligible for nomination, artistes or bands must have released their first commercial recording at least 25 years ago.

As at Fela’s death on August 2, 1997, it had been 28 years since he released “The ’69 Los Angeles Sessions” on the Wrasse Records label.

It was a re-issued album recorded in 1969 while Fela Kuti was living in Hollywood performing six nights a week at the Citadel de Haiti on Sunset Boulevard which was run by Bernie Hamilton.  

We wonder why Fela was not nominated during his lifetime and for 24 years after his death, given that the Abami Eda (the strange being) had met and even surpassed the criteria for this nomination before and long after his death.

A multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, composer, political activist, philosopher and pan-Africanist, Fela was the pioneer of Afrobeat, an African music genre combining traditional Yoruba and Afro-Cuban music with funk and jazz.

He bestrides other nominees like a colossus and, therefore, more than deserves to be inducted. Fela is also currently rated the sixth most worthy 2021 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominee after Todd Rundgren, Carole King, The Go Go’s, Tina Turner, and Mary J. Blige.

Apart from being the only African to be nominated, which is unique, Fela convincingly fulfills the two main objectives of the award – a demonstration of unquestionable musical excellence, talent and significant impact on the development, evolution, and preservation of Rock & Roll through Afrobeat.

There are other significant senses in which Fela is unique.

All Fela’s music were created by him; he never remixed anyone’s music, including his own, and he never repeated themes.
