(Outro)
It’s the crowd controller

Chiko Ekun is out with a new song after enjoying so much success and playtime with his previous hit, Able God. He is back with a new song, Zanku inspired and the late king of pop, Michael Jackson. in Fact, Mikel Jaksin is a variation of his name in the native Yoruba dialect.

Positives

The song starts in a slow melancholic way until the sudden change of tempo. The intro of the song is nothing spectacular and it is not bad either.
The song talks about a supposed Michael Jackson that ended up being a sham. We like the character development of the Mikel Jaksin in the song. The storyline was superb and one of the best we had heard in a while. Furthermore, Chinko Ekun was able to integrate a dance song and humour for great comic relief.

Negatives

The lyrics of the song while funny and engaging was sung in Yoruba, this means non -Yoruba speakers do not get to enjoy the goodness of the character development and the comic relief in the song.
The melody of the song does not have a specific genre, while it draws some influence from Hip Hop, it is quite different and it fails to register as a particular genre, well, except we now start counting Zanku as a genre of song.
Furthermore, this sound is so common, basically, everyone, most notably Zlatan and Slimcase sing in this manner and it is rather getting boring and uninspiring.

Bottom Line
 

A song with a vastly superior lyrics structure and poor melody, in fact, the only redeeming quality of the song is the quality of the structure of the lyrics and then the instrumental does well to make the song engaging. Take away the beat and you have nothing left.
