A day in the life of the Lagos-raised artist consists of waking up at 7pm and partying until 7am.

A typical night for singer-songwriter Davido in his hometown of Lagos, Nigeria consists of waking up at 7 or 8 p.m. to “roll out fifty, sixty cars deep [and] hit the club.” In the latest episode of Top Five, the former FADER cover star lists his top five things to do when visiting Nigeria.

“If there’s one thing Nigerians love, it is party[ing]. They throw a party for anything,” Davido explains of his love for Nigeria. “You go to the marketplace [and] people are happy. Even people who don’t have money, they’re just happy for no reason.” While partying is obviously a priority for Davido, he exclaims that the number one thing to do in Lagos is eat. “To me, Nigerian food is the best in the world. I don’t care where I eat, I’m never full unless I have my Nigerian food.” *chef’s kiss*.

Kano’s lists his top five grime instrumentals | The FADER

The FADER – #Kano provides an essential guide to the essentials of early grime in the latest episode of Top Five. The legendary east London MC and Top Boy star, ranks his favorite beats from across the genre’s foundational period, taking time to shout out production from Jammer, Ruff Sqwad, Danny Weed, and more. “We rarely hear instrumentals any more,” he says, explaining the turn-of-the-century period when he was coming up alongside peers such as Dizzee Rascal and Wiley. “[Back] then we were listening to tunes every day with no artist so it was, like, ‘How could I spit on this? How could I turn this into something?’ It’s a blank canvas. That’s how we looked at it.” Subscribe now for more The FADER  http://bit.ly/XPZVfG”>http://bit.ly/XPZVfG Read the FADER: http://www.thefader.com”>http://www.thefader.com Follow the FADER on Twitter: https://twitter.com/thefader”>https://twitter.com/thefader Like the FADER on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/11JaNSJ”>http://on.fb.me/11JaNSJ Follow the FADER on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thefader/”>https://www.instagram.com/thefader/

How Melii learned to love herself: The FADER x WAV Present Frequencies…

The FADER – In the latest FADER x WAV Present Frequencies mini-doc, we spend time with the Harlem-born rapper as she rises to the top. “In general, my music is for bad bitches,” Harlem-born rapper Melii tells us in the latest episode of FREQUENCIES, The FADER’s collaborative documentary series with WAV. Documenting her rise from lost free spirit in high school to the leader of the “Icey” revolution, the 22-year-old says she’s on good terms with herself now, though she confesses, “it took me a while to love myself, but now that I do… I don’t want to hold back ever.” Melii says PS197, her high school, is “where I got corrupted” and where she dealt with bullying, which made her start rapping and taught her how to cut back at people. When she was 18, she dropped out of high school because her time in the studio was affecting it, assuring her mom: “I’m gonna go hard in this. I’m gonna do what I have to do to make it.”https://www.thefader.com/2019/11/26/melii-wav-doc”>https://www.thefader.com/2019/11/26/melii-wav-doc Download WAV to watch more content like this: http://wav.media/s/532VhCL4″>http://wav.media/s/532VhCL4 Read the FADER: http://www.thefader.com”>http://www.thefader.com Follow the FADER on Twitter: https://twitter.com/thefader”>https://twitter.com/thefader Like the FADER on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/11JaNSJ”>http://on.fb.me/11JaNSJ Follow the FADER on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thefader/”>https://www.instagram.com/thefader/ Read the WAV Blog: ​https://blog.wav.media/”>https://blog.wav.media/ Follow WAV on Twitter: https://twitter.com/wav_media”>https://twitter.com/wav_media Like WAV on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WAV.Media/”>https://www.facebook.com/WAV.Media/ Follow WAV on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wav/”>https://www.instagram.com/wav/ WAV is built for artists.
