Okiemute is the 2016 Project Fame winner, unfortunately, she has not enjoyed much attention in the limelight. She released a new single to commemorate the celebration of her birthday this year.
The song starts with an interesting Instrumental, then is followed by Wosa. Although the instrumentals did spice things at the beginning, the vocal intro was nothing special, in fact, it reduced the overall score of the intro.
Okiemute's vocals were at least clear without any disruption and that as all. No brownie points for a fantastic vocal rendition. It was all but an average performance and nothing special.
The instrumentals of the song were quite unique and engaging at the beginning, till they decided to sound like every other beat out there. At least we did get the occasional flute-like sound in between.
Lyrically, the song is just there. As a matter of fact, we really do not know the message Okiemute was trying to pass across. For us the lyrics is poor and it was not properly written. We should not be struggling to understand what the song is about. Moreso, as the song is in Yoruba. Even a Yoruba person was left wondering.
The melody of the song was all but too boring for us, this is probably because of the genre and style of music. We really did not enjoy it.
The song lacks a video and publicity push, in fact, it does not feel like she has a team to help her publicity.
