SONIC SOUL!

DJ Neptune seems to be everywhere with he recent release and features. He only just released a new Extended Playlist a few days ago a d the next thing we know he is releasing a new song. Ojoro was released on the 14th of July and he features Koko Master himself, D’banj and Flash. As we all mostly know, D’banj is an Afrobeat entertainer who is a veteran n the music industry. Flash on the other hand is a newbie and he sings moe in Afropop. Ojoro is a blend of both genres and it simply means reciprocating love in the context of the song.

 

Positives

Ojoro starts with some really strong and prominent beats playing the intro instrumentals give the impression that the song will mostly be an Afrobeat affair, however, the song ended being more of an Afropop affair.
The song is all about them professing their love to a certain girl. Flash took his time to express his desire and affection in all manners of ways with sharp and precise tonguing
Flash's vocals shined all through the song, close attention must be paid to the dynamic contrasts between mf and ff, and ff to pp. It was a soothing experience really.
Afropop meets Afropop, that is a classic example of what Ojoro is. The blend of the genres leads to a warm, mellow four-part horn chorale, a tender and expressive melody

Negatives

While the song is all about them expressing their affection for a certain girl and imploring her to reciprocate the love, the lyrics are mostly average and they were just unable o resonate with us which is weird as this is a very relatable story. We have all had that crush that just did not feel the same way about us at one point or the other.

Bottom Line
 

Thie blend of Afropop and Afrobeat creates an intense, rhythmic, driving, angular sound that is quite contemporary. The rich and resonant brass and the crisp and exact percussion dominate the scene throughout the song.
