The ladies are seriously not taking it easy on us this year and not just on the Nigerian music scene. With the likes of Lady Leshurr, Lioness, Amplify Dot and so many more Femcees in the UK and Eva back home, making waves and stealing hearts with their outstanding skills; it’s no wonder why Femcees are stepping up to the plate this year. So, without further ado, let me introduce you to Tilly and Taiyel.
Tilly (aka Gidi Girl Major) is an up-and-coming Nigerian artist based in London. She is currently working on her debut EP to be released later during the year. Here’s her single, “Carry Go” produced by Ehi of JuvyTek, off that EP and a remix she did to Sauce Kid‘s “Carolina”. She’s definitely one to watch this year as her peculiar flow and quick witted wordplay come to life on her songs. Enjoy!

At just 16 years, Taiyel is proving to be a good lyricist ad most certainly a Femcee to look out for. In this track “What Can Fa”, Taiyel, based in the US, teamed up with UK based Nigerian artiste, Material and producer Waffi boy. It’s a 5 minute track filled with tongue twisting rhymes and lyrics seeming effortless over speedy delivery. Definitely another femcee to watch. Enjoy!
