SONIC DISASTER!

Mr Real is back with a new track and he’s not alone. He has decided to employ the services of indeginous/traditional rappers on persons of Reminisce Alaaga Ibile and Phyno Fino. We have to confess this is a song with a strong and diversified sound! DJ Kaywise is in charge of general production of the track. The song was released on the 18th of August. The track may not be as popular as most out there but maybe it does deserve to have a listening chance? Let’s find out in our review shall we?

 

Positives

The song starts with a rather peculiar intro. The background vocals that kept saying "oga, oga o" followed by Reminisce's trademark sound "Ibile". The intro instrumentals are not bad either. Fast paced and rhythmic. The intro of the song is an embodiment of what the song in itself is about in terms of sound.
The lyrics of the song seems to be one with a positive overall message. That seems to be the only good thing a out the lyrics.
The vocals of the song was clear and that's just about it in terms of vocals.
The song seemed to mix Mr Real's Azaman sound with Reminisce and Phyno's Hip Hop sounds well. The most impressive part of the song in terms of melody is definitely Phyno's part of the song. It's such a shame that it only lasted for a fleeting moment.

Negatives

We were not impressed by the other aspects of the lyrics. The song seemed to stray from it's initial message combining many other ideas to produce a monstrosity they will regard as actual lyrics. When yiu listen attentively you'd realise that the lyrics of this song belong in the trash and they are absolutely no good. Poorly written, distorted messages. Non-existent lyrical structure and poor poor plot development! The lyrics of the song left a lot to be desired by us.
In case you're wondering what the Azaman genre or sound of music is, it's basically a sound adopted by seemingly talentless singers or rappers who are not clearly any of these two. They hide in between the boundaries and sing with a format that requires little to no talent. They usually end up sounding generic and are stuck with just one sound. This is what the majority of what we heard throughout this song. It's something anyone can go into the studio to sing. Reminisce's part of the song was watered down because he allowed himself to be swept away by the Azaman sound.

Bottom Line
 

We do not recommend this song at this point it's better to just sing in your shower and record it. You would probably enjoy it better than this song.
