Plot Synopsis

A Song That Talks About How Most People Are Only Drawn Towards One's Money/Succes

Verses

2

 

In this highlife inspired song, Olamide makes an appearance. The song basically talks about how people are drawn to success and wealth. Even the people such as your friends you expect to be with you unconditionally but are only around you because of your current success. When things are not going nearly as smooth as it once used to go, they begin to disappear and turn their backs on the said person.

Positives

The intro of the song is quite catchy, we liked the progressive sounds of chimes.
The melody of the song has that deep highlife genre influence in it. We did enjoy the sound of the song.
OLamide's part of the song did well to infuse a different sound without messing with the melody and rhythm of the song. He did well to adjust to the highlife tempo while also bringing something different to the song.
Their vocals were quite clear, while they would not win any awards for sonorous vocals, they did well to sound mostly crisp and clear without any distortion nor distraction from the beats.
The instruments did well to compliment the song, it highlighted the Igbo-highlife in the song making it more assertive without making it aggressive.

Negatives

Unfortunately, the song has just a little over eighteen thousand views on YouTube, this translates to how not so popular the song is even with the presence of Olamide in the song.
Some people may be put off because he does sound like Flavour way too much or is it just the highlife influence?

Bottom Line
 

While we did enjoy the melody and sound of the song, we will not be carried away to call this a good song, at best it is maybe just a decent song. We will not bother adding this song to our playlist.
