There has been a lot of controversy between Ycee and his former label boss, Tinny. After Ycee release the tracklist of his album (YceeVsZaheer) under his new imprint (ANBT), Tinny decided to drop (or should I say leak) some of the songs. Well, Ycee fans are not having it, as they rally on social media saying no one should stream or download any song off the album except Ycee releases it.
In the midst of all this, Ycee decided to tease us with a new single off the album. This Afro-pop record is titled Dakun and it is produced by Krizbeatz ‘the drummer boy’.
Ycee might just be the best at chiming out sensual lyrics. Well, this song was no different. Ycee has a corny way of wooing a lady with his lyrics. Krizbeatz didn’t falter to give us a dope beat to groove to. Although it seemed like the beat was missing a heavy synth to add aggression to it, the beat was okay and danceable.
Is our expectancy to high or are we tripping, because this sounds like the laziest piece of musical arrangement from a talented artiste like Ycee. The song started on a blissful note and a bouncy afro-pop inclined beat. As Ycee started singing, the song went south. Nothing could save it from here onwards, not even the bouncy beat or his ‘okay’ lyrics. It’s like the intro was the saturation point of the song. Maybe if Ycee had started on a lower octave, the vibe would have changed. A very important piece of Afro-pop music was missing; SWEET MELODY. If your melody isn’t catchy and captivating, Nigerians won’t buy it.
