Omoakin, who is popularly known for his Afrobeat genre of music has decided to explore uncharted territories and he did not do a bad job. Santiago is a love song about how he took her to Santiago, Chile.
A decent intro from Omoakin, we liked the sound of the song from the very beginning. We could tell that this was a different affair compared to his usual sounds.
This is an unusual side of Omoakin that we were treated to in this song. A decent vocal performance. We had no trouble listening to his words and he himself delivered an above average vocal performance.
The melody has this tropical dance sound and feeling to it. A great deviation from the common types of songs here in Nigeria and we do commend Omoakin for this bold step.
The lyrics are just fair, not overly poor nor bad. Just fair, boring and lacklustre without any moving words.
This song is quite different from mainstream songs in Nigeria. However, it was not well promoted and it did not garner enough traction. Heck, many do not even know about the song!
