Aligo was ahead of its time when it was released. There were very few Electronic dance songs back then in Nigeria and there are even fewer ones now. It seemed like that genre of music did not really grow and everyone is just comfortable running to the more popular afrobeat and Afropop and their variations. Alingo was different and it was welcomed with opened arms. It is strictly a dance song and nothing more!

 

Positives

Alingo starts in one heck of a way. Heavy-metal-style instrumentals, we liked the way the intro instrumentals kind of faded away to allow the vocals of the song to be audible. It was quite engaging and seamless.
Alingo basically talks about dancing so we really did not expect much from it in terms of lyrics. What is, however, impressive is the fact that the lyrics correspond a lot, it has a decent lyrical structure and there is an actual plot development. we have to say we liked the way the lyrics of the song progressed.
A song with a heavy-metal like instrumental and we could still hear what they were singing. Jude Okoye did an impressive job by mixing the song. We had no issues hearing what the now-defunct twin-duo-group were singing.
Alingo has a very groovy melody. It is tuneful and memorable. It did manage to make us reminisce about 2012.
The song has n engaging rhythm. The instrumentals of the song is unique and we liked that about the song.

Negatives

The lyrics of the song is not without one or two negatives. the most prominent being how repetitive it was.
