SONIC TRAINWRECK!

Three Gbosa, a song that commemorates Skuki’s new project titled “Afrobeat” soon to be released album. This is ironic, as Three Gbosa is actually more of an Afropop song. The song is a love song and they talk about their feelings for their respective women in the video of the song.

 

 

Positives

Three Gbosa starts with a classic set of instruments followed by Skuki's intro, The intro sounded like Afrojuju songs of old but then it transitioned to the more modern Afropop.
The song is a love song, they talk about what they can do for their women to show the extent of their commitment.
The melody of the song is decent and nothing more. It was tuneful for a while but we started getting bored.

Negatives

The song seems like your stereotypical love song without any depth at all. We felt enough effort was not put into developing the lyrics and the structure of the lyrics. At the end of the day, the song failed to resonate with us and it just felt flat and bland to us. It did not manage to strike any emotion in us (and trust us, we are a hopeless romantic).
The video did not make matters better. It did not feel like a love song, it felt like they were singing to some other girls and the girls that were not present and the girls used were just proxies that were simply moving to the music. They did not manage to connect to the girls and it did not even look like a love song to us.
The song takes some hits because of the lack of original content. There were lines from a popular Afrojuju ( Baby mi show colour re - Kwam1 Wasiu Ayinde) and the more recent Bad Energy from Skepta and Wizkid.

Bottom Line
 

Three Gbosa failed to deliver as a love song and it is one of those songs that unfortunately can be easily be overlooked.
