Nigeria’s fast-rising Afro-pop and Highlife artiste, Mofe Boyo starts the year off with a new record titled, Gbotemi. The Afro-pop infused highlife record was produced by Gabiz.
Read the review below:
Gabiz made a really solemn but groovy beat. The song started with a highlife guitar riff and smooth legato-played piano chords merged with an Afro-pop drum pattern and the occasional sound of a talking drum. Then came Mofe Boyo's sultry vocals that sound like a sweet blend of Asa and Simi's voice. The timbre of her voice is so unique and it was a good fit for the all-round ambience of the song.
Mofe sang about her strong attraction for a person that does not seem to feel the same way for her. She begs the said person to hear are out (Gbotemi) and come back to her so they can do forever together.
The melodies of the song were not so great. It sounded like a regular highlife record. There was no unique quality or creative twist that could have made the melodies a little bit more interesting. Mofe Boyo's delivery was a little shaky at times and because of the high reverb effect, it showed.
