Skiibii is on a whole different kind of stuff right now. It feels like he is finally getting it right. There must be a story that runs deep behind his sudden rise and prolific production of new songs. Perhaps Nigerians (unforgiving lot–us inclusive) are finally ready to forget his then-controversial publicity stunt with Five Star Records.
The song starts with a tune that suddenly reminded us of Sean Connery's James Bond from back then -- talk about an energizing intro. We loved the succeeding tune and Skiibii's intro, not a bad way to start a song really.
The lyrics make it clear that they are singing to appreciate themselves, at least that much was clear.
The vocals of the song are clear and crisp. No breathtaking vocal rendition but we could at least hear them well which is good enough for a song of this nature.
The melody of the song is actually quite fascinating. The strong influence of Afrobeat, Afropop, Fuji Pop and even Hip Hop. Talk about the ultimate blend/fusion.
The song is superficial and lacks lyrical depth. That should be expected as the song is a sort of vain self-eulogy.
While the melody sounds great at first with the rich blend of genres, it still failed to continuously engage us through the whole song.
