SONIC 

“Enemies ko laapa wan ko lese o
Iya iya o
Bad belle ko laapa wan ko lese o
Iya iya o
Eh eh, eh eh
Chikorobi obi (Obi)
Bad belle onye ara (Obi)
Enemies Onye oshi (Obi)
Eh eh
Oro iwa di saliu bu tu shi o
Eshi buruku”

Small Doctor seems to  be garnering some traction as a musician. We can comfortably and officially say he is no longer an upcoming artiste. This is another song from him with his unique genre of music called Fuji Pop, which quite frankly we may already be getting tired of as it makes all his songs sound too similar.

 

Positives

The intro of the song starts strongly and not with an instrumental as is usually the case. This time, we were introduced to the song by the vocals of Small Doctor himself.
Small Doctor's vocals were clear and audible when we were listening to the song.
The instrumentals of the song is not prominent, in fact, we hardly noticed it most times. This is very rare in Nigerian songs. The instrumentals of the song did well to support the song and set an interesting rhythm for the song to follow.

Negatives

The lyrics of the song is well, just everywhere. We found it difficult to keep up with the things he was singing as sometimes when he moves to another line, he sings something completely unrelated.
Most of the lyrics of the song are in Yoruba. This will be difficult for the non-Yoruba speakers to enjoy. In fact, it may deter a lot of people from listening to the song. Then again, Small doctor already has many faithful fans.
The melody of the song is just there for us, no innovation and nothing special. As we said earlier it sounds similar to most of his other songs.

Bottom Line
 

If you are a fan of Small Doctor and do not mind the Yoruba then this is the song for you. As for us at the office, we are moving to another song.
