A very emotional one from Jaywon. It’s understandable that he is trying to come back into the limelight after a couple of failed songs. However, the staying power of the song is contestable; it feels like it’s only a few loyal fans that will enjoy Jaywon’s alternative Afropop
A beautiful rendition from Jaywon; it is quite an expressive song. Jaywon is an impressive vocalist and he demonstrated this in his new single. It was quite clear what he was talking about; for those that understand Yoruba anyway. The instrumentals are catchy and rhythmic, we enjoyed the part in which he paused singing for a while and the instrumentals were just playing. Even the ending part of the song was sonorous with the background choir like voices. If you enjoy Alternative Afropop and understand Yoruba, then this may just be your jam.
The video told the story as we expected it,
Perhaps we have heard or seen this storyline too much; being jilted by the love of your life for a richer man (well we guess it's a recurring event with an increased frequency these days). There is also the worry of how not a majority of people will enjoy the song. Firstly, it was sung in Yoruba; yes we know Olamide and co sing in Yoruba and have lots of non-Yoruba fans but let's face it, Jaywon has been outdated for a while now. He would need to meet with Duncan Mighty for some advice here (fake love is playing in our heads ).
Latsly, Saro is not the type of song most Nigerians enjoy. They enjoy more danceable songs, songs you can dance shaku shaku and co to. Jaywon will need a bit of a miracle and strategic thinking to produce a major hit again as he once used to.
