SONIC SOUL!

Tolani, the elder sister of DJ Cuppy is back after treating us to a really great debut song with Reekado Banks, Ba Mi Lo. This is another love song, however, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns in this one, in fact, this song, “Liar” has a darker tone in relation to “Ba Mi Lo”.

 

Positives

The song starts with an array of instrumentals then followed by Tolani's vocals. There was really little room for a transition in the song, hence, there was no change of rhythm in the intro of the song up to the song itself.
The lyrics of the song are straight to the point, accusatory and illustrative with a couple of swear words and all. It feels like a breakup song which is the feeling Tolani was trying to convey to us.
To be honest, the melody was quite anti-climatic for us, it just did not reach the climax of the previous song. While the quality is lower than the previous song, it still sounds good.

Negatives

Even though the song is new, we have reviewed a lot of new songs and we were able to see a lot of materials about them online. However, such is not the case for this new song from Tolani. The song is not up on popular music sites in Nigeria yet. Tolani's management team should be working overtime to promote the sh*t (pardon our language) out of the song.

Bottom Line
 

A decent song from Tolani, she brings a very relatable storyline and the song gives us an eerie sensation of a pending breakup.
