SONIC EXPERIENCE!

Reminisce is out with a new song featuring Afro House sensation, Niniola. This was not a collaboration we were expecting. It’s not that we did not see the collaboration as a possibility, it is more that we did not even think of it one single bit. However, the collaboration was always possible seeing as they both sing in Yoruba. Jensismi is also a song that was sung in Yoruba and we are not sure it reaches the lofty height we had set in our minds for the song immediately we saw the collaboration on the list of newly really songs.

Positives

Jensimi starts with some nice instrumentals followed by Niniola and Reminisce's trademark intros. We liked Niniola's "Nini Dey, Nini Dey" intro in particular.
We really like Niniola's vocals, she knows how to hit a home run with her vocal rendition and her unique sound. Perhaps this was even the best part of the song.
The melody started off interesting and engaging but our attention soon started to wane. Generally, the melody is tuneful but we do not believe it to be memorable.

Negatives

The lyrics of the song is actually nothing to write home about. In fact, while listening to the song we subconsciously just listened to the melody, vocals and instrumentals without paying much attention to the lyrics of the song. Maybe that was the intention?? Maybe it is a general intention by most Nigerian Musicians or it is just the way Nigerians listen to songs? Or it may be even more global than we know?
The song also has poor lyrical structure and zero plot development. We had expected better from these two artists really.
The melody of the song started on a good note but after a while, we started getting bored with the song.

Bottom Line
 

Jensimi did not get t the dizzying heights we had in our heads when we got excited about the new song and that perhaps is the problem. However, we did enjoy the song to some extent. It is actually not bad and we do recommend it if you do not mind the Yoruba lyrics, not like you would listen to the lyrics much anyway.
