Nigerian rapper and singer, Dice Ailes released a new single in the early hours of October 30, 2019. It is titled. Ginika and it was produced by Kel P. Since he released the song, Dice Ailes has received a lot of social media backlash for using the artwork of Sarah Baartman. Sarah Baartman was a South African from the 18th century who was used to please white slave-masters back then. She had excess fatty tissue around her back-side, so she was sexualized and mocked. This serves as a dark time in black history.

Let’s get to the music tho, shall we?

Positives

It's Kel P vibes once again. Although this sounds like a case of Dice Ailes asking Kel P to give him a soco type beat, the beat still bangs. The clap made the instrumental a little distinctive tho. Dice Ailes came through with clean and crisp vocals and the raspiness in his voice was nice.

Negatives

The melody of the song was too experimental. Dice Ailes tried to input a trap style performance and blend it with the conventional afro-pop. It could have hit if he approached it the way he approached Alakori. Lyrically, the song was not it. The lyrics were too shabby and the story did not click.

Bottom Line
 

There was a conspiracy theory that Dice Ailes did this for the clout. Well, this song is not it and the controversy is not helping matters. Right now, we would rather hear a chant of Sarah Baatman's name for 2minutes 32 seconds.
