SONIC SOUL!

“I say Emergency o way
You know my heart breaking oh way
She ain’t loving oh way
Someone come and carry me away
Emergency oh way
You know my heart breaking oh way
She ain’t loving oh way
Someone come and carry me away”

Nonso Amadi is consistently trying to carve a niche for himself in the Nigerian Music Industry and that is great. This is his first song of the year titled Emergency. As is usually the case with Nonso, he was the one that produced the song. The song has a love theme in which he is trying to cajole the girl.

 

 

Positives

We were treated to an array of instrumentals and an interesting contralto kind of singing voice in the background. It was actually an interesting intro for us here at the office.
Lyrically, the song is mostly average, not bad but not so great either. However, this is a great improvement from what we are used to hearing from most musicians in Nigeria.
The melody of the song does have a distinct feeling and it is quite tuneful. A blend of modern pop with subtle Afropop influences here and there.

Negatives

While we did the melody, it began to sound rather flat after a long time of listening to the song. This simply means listening to this song on repeat will make you get tired of the song quickly.
We feel like Nonso Amadi does not always do nearly enough PR for his songs. Is this because he is not in Nigeria or he does not have a dedicated PR team for that? We feel like this much sauce needs to be delivered to as many people as possible.
There is also the issue of No video for the song. We feel a video will do even better justice to the song provided it does have a storyline that is relevant to the lyrics of the song.

Bottom Line
 

A decent song but you probably do not want to leave the song on repeat. You will probably end up disliking the song after a short period.
