SONIC SOUL!

“What did you see?
What did you see?
Ima zi kwa odiri easy o (Do you know that it’s not easy)
No be today
Ma lo gbagbe
Eh eh eh”

Oh Burnaboy, the recent winner at Soundcity MVP with four whooping awards. Song of the year, African artiste of the year and more. Indeed he had a very eventful (no, we are not talking about the disaster at Coachella, we don’t care about that.) and successful 2018. He features in a single released by DJ Spinall last year.

Positives

The intro of the song is reminiscent of "Ayangba Girls Are Dangerous" by Black Reverendz. However, Burna boy gave it a more base performance. It is not a bad way to start a song at all.
The lyrics of the song is laced with subtle and not so subtle self eulogies about how they are still relevant and whatnot. The good thing, however, is that they make this clear that their continued relevance as a result of their hard work.
The melody of the song is tuneful, I mean it has Burnaboy on it, this is expected, we enjoyed the dancehall laced song with a blend of afrobeat, for us the melody is a sure kill.
We could hear Burnaboy's vocals clearly. His rendition was not a bad one. We enjoyed every bit of it.
A rather more unique beat when compared to the number of similarities usually between most beats out there.

Negatives

It's rather strange that a song of such quality does not have a video. We expected the song to have a crisp looking video with all the normal vain additions.
Even though the song does not have a video, we felt not much effort was put into marketing the song. We feel like their team should have worked harder to ensure that the song achieves some level of success in playtimes.
