*YCEE- PANDA COVER
Tinny Entertainment front man covers the hottest hip hop joint of the year “Panda”. Arguably the best Nigerian Panda cover as Ycee fuses elements of the original song and adds his usual easy feel. Ycee made the song more interesting than the original with his clear vocals and lyrical harmonies.
*DREMO- FELA(PANDA COVER)
Davido would be proud of his new rap act Dremo as he delivers a top drawer cover of the Panda song. Dremo paid tribute to one of his inspiring musical icons and arguably Africa’s biggest musical export Fela Anikulapo Kuti with a fiery hip hop banger. Dremo’s version is simply fire upon fire “Afrobeats highlife, smoking weed highlife”.
*ERIGGA- EOPC(END OF PANDA COVER)
Erigga changed it, and really it was the end of Panda cover. Pidgin at it’s best, if you try listening to what Erigga said and not how he said it you would be amazed at the witty and punchy lines.
Other notable mention is Yung6ix Panda cover.
*RUBY GYANG- HELLO COVER
The Chocolate City vocal powerhouse, Ruby Gyang delve into her own rendition of the record breaking single. She hit all the notes seamlessly, heavenly stuff.
*PRAIZ- HELLO COVER
Nigerian RnB ‘god’ Praiz’s rendition of “Hello” is pure class. Not many would attempt Adele’s songs and hit the high notes perfectly. His vocal prowess is top notch as he effortlessly dished out the lines even Adele would be proud of.
*OMAWUMI- HELLO COVER
The reggae fillings during the hook of the Hello cover song is just epic! Omawonder as she’s popularly called introduced the reggae beat to the song and it didn’t harm in anyway, infact, there’s this freshness that sets it apart and saves us the ear ache of listening to another repetition of the song with different stress pattern.
Notable mention is Ola Dips cover of the “Hello” song.
