SONIC SOUL!

“Bo ya lo ma dele oh, (Bo ya lo ma dele oh)
Ni bi lo ma ku si oh, (Ni bi lo ma ku si oh)
Yeh, baby girl I fit fight for your matter oh, (for your matter oh)
I promise I no go dey use you play manyewu, (no go dey use you play manyewu, oh yea)
Oh yeah, see your love dey sweet my body
E dey make me want to spend money yeh
See your love dey sweet my body
E dey make me want to spend money yeh”

Larry Gaaga is here once again but this time he features Wizkid. The track is a love Afrobeat song. As is usually the case with Larry Gaaga, he does not do any singing in the song but leaves everything to Wizkid.

 

Positives

The song starts at a rather slow pace with instrumentals playing, most notably a piano then Larry Gaaga saying "baby come one" for a while in a sort of background voice-esque manner.
Wizkid, without doubt, has impressive vocals, no we are not talking about Blues or Soul impressive, we are talking about Afrobeat impressive. We enjoyed his vocal performance, it was filled with life and expressiveness.
The melody of the song is also one of the strong qualities of the song. Wizkid sure knows how to sing an Afrobeat song and he did come through with this song. The song is tuneful but we are not sure if it is memorable.

Negatives

While this song is obviously a love song, there were times we found ourselves lost and wondering what he was talking about. This was basically our minds wandered and it may also be because the quality of the structure of the song is not very high.
We really love wizkid but we just cannot help but shake the concerns we have, for some reasons, all his songs are already sounding way too similar. It's great to have a trademark sound but it becomes boring and blurry when everything sounds so similar.

Bottom Line
 

Larry Gaaga is not a singer and we just cannot keep wondering why he has really decided to come to the spotlight after years of operating in the shadows in the Nigerian Music Industry. We guess it's okay now to feature someone on a track and sing little to nothing on the track, at least a lot of people seem to be doing that now.
