SONIC EXPERIENCE!

Yovi, a relatively unknown name in the Nigerian Music industry. Apparently, he has been around for a while but he is just coming to our attention for the very first time. Yovi started out as a producer before he became a singer. It’s allowed is another feel-good song featuring Davido and Zlatan Ibile.

Positives

The song starts with a familiar tune playing from the instrumentals. We just could not really place it. It was accompanied by Yovi singing. When we listened carefully, we were actually impressed. However, as far as captivating our attention, the intro only managed an average rating.
On the bright side the vocals were actually quite decent. We liked Yovi's in particular. He was able to impress us and even managed to get us on the same wavelength even if it was for a short while. We had no issues hearing what they were singing.
The melody is your classic Afropop blended with Zlatan's unique style and a bit of Azaman. At this point, we are convinced that whenever Zlatan is singing, it is Slimcase that does the background singing with his Azaman style of music.

Negatives

The song neither has a head nor tail. we were left mostly uninterested by what they were singing. The song lacks any lyrical depth. With Davido going on about his money, Yovia stuck in his own world and Zlatan doing the dam ol stuff. We just weren't feeling the song. The lines were cheesy and cringe worthy. It's the same ol recycled music content.
While the song does seem rich with blends of many sounds, it's still the same old recycled sound. We were hardly excited to and impressed.

Bottom Line
 

At the end of the day, the song is just one of those many songs. It lacks originality and won't be staying long.
