Demmie Vee fresh after the controversy that transpired between him, the record label he was signed to and the boss of the record label, Kizz Daniel. Demmie Vee alleged that Fly Boys Inc and Kizz Daniel had reneged on his contract and he even went as far as accusing them of sabotaging his songs. He is back in his former record label, Hope Never Dies (HND Records) and this his first single he is releasing with them after his return. Surulere is probably an embodiment of what he has been going through. The word simply means Patience has rewards.
The song starts with a subtle instrumental playing with varying rhythms followed by Demmie Vee's vocals. The intro of the song is decent.
The lyrics of the song are straightforward. He talks about patience and perseverance. He encourages all to keep pushing with their hustles as there are rewards to be enjoyed later on. The lyrics of the song passes a positive message across and the structure of the lyrics are actually not bad.
Demmie Vee's vocals were quite similar to Kizz Daniel's in the song. Maybe his allegations of Kizz Daniel sabotaging his sound deliberately holds some water eh? After all, there can only be one Kizz Daniel (straight face). Okay enough playing around, the vocals of the song are actually great. If you have listened to hypocrite by Falz which we have reviewed, then you would truly have an idea of Demmie Vee's vocal prowess.
The melody of the song is also great, we loved the mainstream Afropop sound. The rhythm of the song is also great, we loved as they synchronised with the instrumentals of the song. The overall harmony of the song flows well.
Most of the song was sung in Yoruba, the other potential fans may not be able to truly enjoy and understand what the song is really about.
A song of this calibre should have a relevant video also to further make the song even more popular, we really hope the song gets a video soon.
