BN Presents Naija Divas: Desperate Chicks



desperate-chicksWe would have never imagined that we would feature a group called Desperate Chicks on Bella Naija but we cant count the number of times BN readers have requested that we feature these Naija Divas. Desperate Chicks are a musical trio from Eastern Nigeria. They released their debut album ‘Tell Dem’ over a year ago and it has been a smash hit! What’s so shocking is that, there seems to be absolutely no press or details on the ladies. BN is on the case and we’ll bring you more on D-Chicks soon. Dont judge the name or the image, the music is incredibly catchy and the vocals are on point! Have a listen to some of their hits below.

Desperate Chicks – Dis Boy

Desperate Chicks – Okpomekwe

Desperate Chicks – Mu Na Gi; Dangerous; Owu

Okpomekwe,u nor dey fear God…Okpomekwe, u dey disrespect ur mama…Okpomekwe n so on. If u haven’t listened 2 this track pls do. I’d really love 2 know more abt them. Thnx.

    Honestly, i saw their name and wasn’t even going to listen to the songs, but then i saw the comments .. i must say they sound really good, very nice. There is still time to re-brand their image (before it is ruined with an unsavory video), because “Desperate Chicks” isn’t going to cut it..

    At long last! I love the “chicks” a lot! As in I forced other ibo people that didn’t know them to listen so I could get translations….their vocal arrangements are on point…Mu na gi, Tell dem, Dis Boy, Owu are hot tracks…if you don’t have this album you are missing oh! Gba be! lol

    I agree. It’s the comments that made me listen. I saw this album cover some weeks and was terribly turned off. They’re actually quite good. Better than some of the ladies featured recently *cough*fragrance*cough. They should work on that name … and that horrible album picture. They have potential.

    i think the name is catchy. I really like the ‘smooth’ sound of the first song. Good luck to them….oh and they are pweeety (aren’t ‘we’ all ehy) 😉

    My friends convinced me to listen to them, claiming they are pretty good. I just can’t believe this, i see no talent. Maybe because I was just done listening to Sade. My friends think I’m been hard on them bcos they are Nigerians, I listen to Asa, Ayo, Timaya, Nneka, just to name a few. I just think real talent is hard to find these days without been desperate, with artists in everywhere.

    Nice one Bella! May I suggest that you include, Ibiyemi (I saw that chick perform on Val’s day and she is one to look out for!), Niyola, KUSH, now those are the real 9ja divas.

    they have wonderful voices but they need to reconsider their wardrobe!! your voice should complement your looks.. theirs doesn’t.

    I have to admit i’m impressed with the vocals, but please they need to change their name and their look, so that they can be were they ought to be… the spotlight

    seriously, it just gets worse… how in the hell are we supposed to take u seriously with a name like desperate chicks , i mean wat are u desperate for ? men? money? fame? COME ON BELLA!!!!

  27. ij

    fyi some people are taking them seriously, regardless of their name , most likely people who just want to listen to gud music.
    pls dont try to over analyse them, just listen to them, moreso , their name is bringing about that much needed curiosity, its a marketing tactic.

    they have a nice voice and nice music but i think they could be able to go further if they changed their name.
    if they want to go international everyone is going to laugh at them because of their name. you cant go international and not even national with a tacky name like that. lol who’s idea was it anyway?

    my favorite song is “dis boy” its the best one from the three. i want their album so bad. thanks to you bella i wouldnt know all these good nigerian artist. dbanj, 9ice and other women degraders need to move over and make room for real music.
    there are better naija artist and female artist but M.I DBanj and others constantly steal the spotlight.
