Plot Synopsis

This is an expressive love song

Verses

2

 

Lova Lova is a banger and perhaps too underrated. One can argue that this is the best collaboration Duncan Mighty has done so far, but hey, that’s an unpopular opinion with the fans. The rendition of the song is beautiful; it’s like a match made in heaven. Tiwa Savage arguably the queen of Afropop really came through for this one.

 

Positives

From the beginning of the song to the end, everything was just seamless. The melody, rhythm, beats and vocals; it was a buttery experience. They both complimented each other well with their genres (Afropop and highlife). Tiwa is talented without a doubt; she made Duncan Mighty sound so good ( we are not saying Duncan Mighty was not good himself). The video is an interesting one, we enjoyed it, the progression, the storyline and whatnot. The lyrics did have some interesting lines: "Girlie o, if I break your heart na oil spillage". This was my favourite line in the song and I found it amusing. Perhaps Duncan Mighty was even trying to sneak in an easter egg (hidden message) there; the oil spillage condition in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. After all, he is from Port Harcourt.

Negatives

We love you Tiwa Savage but all these your sultry-like movements in the video don't just do it for us. It just feels like she is trying too much to 'use her sex appeal'. For future reference we will like you to focus more on your dance movements; you can be even sultry this way Tiwa.
The lyrics also got too repetitive for us at one point also.

Bottom Line
 

At the end of the day, Lova Lova by Tiwa and Wene Mighty is a beautiful song; perhaps the best Duncan Mighty Collaboration till date (sorry Fake Love). I won't go as far as calling it a masterpiece but it's as close we can get. And the good thing is the song is very danceable; so you may want to take out your shaku shaku shoes and put them on for this jam.
SONIC out.........
