Shallipopi, the Nigerian singer, says he has “over 1000 unreleased songs”.


The singer spoke about his catalogue of unreleased songs in a recent episode of the Afrobeats Intelligence podcast.

The songwriter also revealed why he embedded nursery rhymes in his latest single titled ‘Oscroh’.

He said the inclusion of nursery rhymes in the song was a deliberate experiment to gauge public reception.


He added that he has “over 1000 unreleased songs” and wondered if people would stream them.

“Yes now, I said I should test it. Do you know why? I have more than 1000 songs that I have not dropped, then I said if I drop this, would people stream it? What I know is that some people will accept, some people will not accept,” he said.

“I took my phone, searched on Google for the most streamed video on earth and I saw Baby Shark. The most streamed video on earth is nursery rhymes, the second is Despacito, I cannot speak Spanish, the third is Johnny Johnny; Yes Papa, nursery rhymes so I say make I experiment small.”


He said despite complaints about infusing nursery rhymes into his song, he achieved his goal of gaining attention and streams.

“A lot of people are complaining but I already got what I want, the clout is already there, the stream is already there,” he added.

“You do not have to like my song, there are other artistes, that is why it is not only me that is the only artiste on earth.”

Shallipopi rose to fame after releasing his first single titled ‘Elon Musk’.


On October 17, Shallipopi launched Plutomania Records, his record label.
