SONIC SOUL!

“Mo tin duro de e
O to odun meta o to do
Are we ever going to be more than just friends?
You casually call me baby
Ara mi wo lo na
To ri wo le ni oko mi o”

Tolani the elder sister of DJ Cuppy, yep she is an Otedola too and is quite a talented singer. However, Cuppy is still trying to grow and evolve as a musician. Tolani has obviously passed this stage as she produces a sonorous Rhythm and Blues song with the infusion of Afro-pop. Her abilities are further complimented by Reekado’s talent.

 

Positives

The song starts with a rhythmic beat of drums and some other subtle instruments and then the introduction of several other instruments. We did like the intro, especially as Tolani demonstrated her vocal prowess right from the very beginning.
Lyrically the song gets straight to the point, a love song in which the singer is trying to encourage the other person to reciprocate. It was a story really and one, well told. The partner ended up reciprocating the singer's feelings.
The vocals in the song are great, we just loved everything about it. Their vocals were well measured and controlled, we could hear them well without any distortions and OH we really did love the demonstration of their vocal prowess by both singers. They really did compliment each other well.
We liked the melody of the song, A rhythm and blues sound with a subtle addition of Afropop. It was tuneful and melodic to our ears.
