SONIC SOUL!

Teni Makanaki is now going beyond the shores of Nigeria. The next destination for her is Ghana. Stonebwoy, the dancehall singer features her in a new track. The track is titled Ololo. And we’re really wondering what they arr talking about. They keep saying I want to give you my Ololo. Was it simply assimilation and contraction that happened in the process of pronouncing love love? It seems highly likely at this point.

Positives

The song starts with a great beat and a wonderful vocal performance from Stonebwoy. We love that the song started with so much vigor from the very beginning.
Ololo seems to talk about giving their potential partners all their love. We could only hope that's the actual meaning. Most times these phrases are ambiguous and they hid the true meanings behind more innocent meanings.
Apart from the not so great lyrical quality, the structure is not bad. If somewhat had a plot development that ended up being decent.
Both artists' vocals were simply unparalleled in the song. We enjoyed their vocal performances. They were able to infuse just about enough emotions into the song. It did get us to resonate to the song well. We could hear and feel their passion in the vocal performance of the song.
The melody is a crisscross between dancehall and a subtle Fuji-pop here and there. In fact, there was a time that it seemed like Teni teetered between highlife, Fuji-pop and dancehall. We love the way she found a way to blend her sound into the song without disrupting the rhythm of the song.
The song is quite rhythmic and the beat is quite decent. We liked the fact that it didn't distract us from the song itself.

Negatives

There are a lot of repititions in the song. The lyrics could have been better really. It lacked depth and any reach. It seemed like a rushed couple of words that were just string together.
