“Oh my girl, girl you look like money,
So fresh so sweet so solid
Light it up on you 100,
I got the goody bag, watcha want from me
Oh my girl, girl you look so sweet,
Other girls no they can’t compete
Am the type of guy wey you need
I can be your word help”
Burna Bello, oh Korede Bello, he seems to be emulating Burna Boy’;s style of music, hence, the mix-up. Mr Vendor is a dancehall-inspired genre of song. During the review, we found it interesting to see that Korede was venturing out of his comfort zone and trying something new.
Mr Vendor starts with a slow-paced instrumental playing in the background, followed by Korede Bello's vocals. We found it rather interesting that he used the moniker "Oluwa-Bello". That is even more proof that he tried emulating Burna Boy in this song.
Korede Bello's vocals were impressive as is usually the case with Korede Bello. We were able to hear the expressiveness in his voice.
The melody of the song is a no brainer and the shining light of the song. We loved every part of it. There is just something about dancehall songs, you can almost never get it wrong with dancehall. We loved the smooth flow of the song and the subtle introduction of Afropop ijn the song from time to time.
The structure of the lyrics took us on a roller coaster without adequately conveying the storyline of the song. We soon got tired of trying to understand the non-existent storyline during the review.
Korede Bello sounded a lot like Burna boy in Mr Vendor and we are really not sure how we feel about that. If it is just a one-time thing then we welcome the change and emulation. However, if this is his new style he will have to go back to the drawing board.
