SONIC EXPERIENCE!

Oya fantasy, be my fantasy, this your bakasi
E need dollars
Oya fantasy, be my fantasy, this your bakasi
E need dollars

The Mayor of Lagos, Mayorkun, no he is not the Mayor, we do not even have a Mayor. That is the name of his album. MAyorkun seems to be everywhere, mostly due to his album release just like a certain Mr Eazi.

Positives

If there is one thing most Nigerian producers are good at is the intro beat of a song. You will rarely hear a bad intro beat. This is just one of those good intro beats. It leads seamlessly to the point of introduction of Mayorkun's sound.
The melody is nothing special, just like your regular song. It was not tuneful enough for us and it sounded way too similar to most songs out there.
The vocals were decent, we could at least hear Mayorkun's voice well. It was no way as resonating as his vocal rendition from his song with Rose May Alaba - 50/50.
As usual, the instrumentals of the song is good, kiddominat did a decent job. Nothing fantastic but it was good enough for the song.

Negatives

The lyrics of the song is nothing to write home about. It was devoid of any lyrical depth or meaning. At least we did not have to second guess what the song was all about.
The song lacked innovation and it was just your regular 'create a nice beat, pick a superficial storyline, sing and hope for the best'. A song that lacks innovation should at least be original. Well, this was not the case for this song. Even though Mayorkun stuck to his style, the song sounded like every other thing out there without any distinction.
The video of the song was pfff. It lacked any creativity, it started well at the beginning then we just forgot that it was supposed to be a fantasy.

Bottom Line
 

If you are a fan of Mayorkun then this may be a song for or if you are not tired of hearing the same thing over and again, then you can download this song. However, we will not be recommending this song and the sooner we are done with the review, the earlier we want to forget about it.
Don't get us wrong, the song is not terrible, it is just an average lacklustre song and that in itself is the problem.
