Plot Synopsis

This is Timaya and Olamide addressing their critics.

Verses

3

 

Egberi Papa 1 (or should we call him Don)  collaborated with Olamide on this one. It’s an interesting tune the combination of highlife and rap. That plantain boy is no longer a plantain boy no matter what he wants us to believe, he’s now a successful musician. Apparently a lot of people have been doubting his ablity to sing or produce hit songs agerin and he adressed this in the song.

 

Positives

Timaya and Olamide took turns to address a couple of thin gs critics had said about them in this song. The beat has a relatively unique blend of instrumentals. We love the tempo and progression, especially to Olamide's part. It was good to hear Olamide rap again; it really was a fresh breath of hip hop vibes and Highlife.

Negatives

This is like a stereotypical song, it feels like we have heard several versions of this kind of song before from other musicians. There was no creativity or even meaningful punchlines (except a couple of vulgar ones). The song also felt too raw and uncensored with a couple of choice words that were used in several lines. We were also not sure what the end goal was; one minute they're thanking God for their success, the next they're cursing a critic.
We also felt Timaya was too laid back with no effort whatsoever, perhaps he lacked motivation since this is not his usual storyline (bum bum and ukwu we are envying your energy).

Bottom Line
 

If we ever felt like thanking God for success, showing off the success and cursing out our critics (haters) at the same time then we would definitely tune into Bam Bam for the motivation.
