Who got a request from Peter Benjamin Peter (hey, we are also wondering why the Peter appears twice in his name) to review his song on SoundStroke. If you will like us to review your song or any song of any upcoming artiste, you can send us a mail on [email protected], link to the song, Producer, Song Writer, Artwork, Lyrics and Artiste name. Now that we have gotten that out of the way, let us dig into the actual review.

Positives

This song is a song with so much musical depth. The song basically condemns the inhumane killings and unfair treatments going on in Nigeria. This song talks about how the youths are being used as a puppet to kill their fellow youths for the elders and corrupt politicians.
The song makes use of intelligent satirical lines to reprimand our government on their failings and shortcomings as our leaders.
The song does have a good but dark melody, it felt like a gloomy atmosphere with foreboding clouds over the sky. Depending on who you ask, this could be a positive or negative point.

Negatives

The song is too long. When we saw that the length of the song was Six minutes and fifty-nine seconds it kind of put us off and if not for the lyrical depth of the song, we may have totally given up on the song.
While we the song is a great song, we did struggle to catch up to what he was saying especially when the song took a poetic turn. He was way too fast for us and at some point, we were beginning to lose interest in the song.
Furthermore, we could not tell if it was his vocal quality or accent, at times we struggled to hear what he was saying.

Bottom Line
 

This is not your everyday song. It vividly paints the troubles across the country while ruffling some feathers. For us, the song is a decent song but probably not an everyday song as this song could be one that changes one's mood to a more serious, dark and gloomy mood.
What are your honest thoughts about the song? We will like to see your review below.

    Beautiful song addressing vital issues of society and our country.
    Songs like this is what the public needs to listen to, but instead they prefer mediocre ones with watered down lyrics. Excellent job!

    Beautiful poetic lines, points to the ills and wrongs of the country, perfect song for those who know next to nothing about what's wrong with our country..
    Negatives
    Too Gloomy but that's understandable because that's exactly what Nigeria is right now..

    A Song addressing the Issues of my beloved Country Nigeria! makes me wanna weep for my country, when will we be free and free indeed! most times, we put on false bravado when In truth, all we wanna do is weep for our country..
