Olamide is back with a new song. It is titled Oil And Gas and it was produced by Pheelz. The track is a criss-cross between Hip Hop and Afrobeat giving us a rather different sound (not Hip Hop and not Afrobeat).

 

Positives

Oil And Gas starts with a typical fashion you will expect from, accompanied by drumsets and other instrumentals.
Olamide made use of satirical subliminal jabs at popular public figures to pass his message across.
The melody of the song is tuneful, it ended up being a sort of fusion between Afrobeat and Hip Hop which ended up sounding different from either.

Negatives

The song was sung in Yoruba and a lot of riddles, even as a Yoruba speaking person, you will need to really read between the lines to understand.
