Buju does not seem to be relenting this year as he releases a 2-song project he called, To Your Ears. Ohema is the second song off the project and it was produced by TMXO.
TMXO did a great job with this infectious instrumental for this song. The Afro-pop infused instrumental had a bouncy afrobeat drum riff with African percussions and a simple minor chord to match. Buju sang about wooing a lady and convincing her to listen to him. The melody was soothing and you could sing along with his catchy lyrics. Ohema’s melody was quite infectious. Buju seems to be a guru of churning out sweet melodies.
Buju’s vocals were clear and crisp, but sometimes, it seemed like he was mumbling words. His energy was off on this song, as his vocal energy couldn’t match the energy of the bouncy beat. The vocals were a little displaced and off at some point too.
