To cuppy this tune, press this… uhhh…
Cuppy has finally released a song in which she sang for a prolonged amount of time. In the last review, Greenlight we talked about how Cuppy was transitioning from a DJ to a musician, is her metamorphosis complete or is she still metamorphosising? Well, this new single can give us lots of information regarding that. Did it turn out as we expected, did it turn out as she expected? Life does not always werk (pun intended) the way we expect it to. This is not your typical song, at least by Nigerian standards. It does sound foreign and this may not sit well with some Nigerians. Stay with us as we explore Cuppy’s new single with Skuki.
Not many Nigerian musicians try to explore this music genre, it is thumbs up to Cuppy for attempting to explore.
The video is a colourful one and it has a light atmosphere about it. It was beautifully made.
Cuppy still has a long way to go in order for her to rise to prominence, featuring skuki on this new track may not have been the best idea for her. Skuki is also struggling to come back into prominence, we felt a more influential figure may have been a better match for this song.
While it is great to try new things especially in the Nigerian clime that is dominated with remixes, covers and mashups of other songs, we feel the funk genre is a doubled edged sword for her at this point. She may have been better off sticking to what has been tried and tested in the Nigerian Market.
