Did I ever mention to u guys that I always look forward to Weird MC (Adesola Adesimbo Idowu) performances cos she has never ever disappointed moi with her high octane levels. I’ve seen about 9 performances till date.
I first heard of the Weird one in 1992 (or was it 93′) when my bruver Lolade bought home her tape, he had gotten from his friend from the now defunct Weirdos group and forced me off the tape player so he could listen to it. I was so upset cos I was trying to memorize Biggie Smalls verse on Mary J‘s “Real Love“.
Track was “Wanna make u Jack” and I believe it was her 1st single; it left me stunned that I forgave my bro for ‘chancing’ me. I thot to myself so Nigeria has produced an equivalent of MC Lyte & MC Trouble (RIP). Joint was on some pure New Jack Swing ish …go on give it a listen.
Fast forward to 18years later and brrrrrrr! Weird MC ‘s still right up there dropping hit after hit – “Allen Avenue“, “Ijoya“, “Riranwo“. Wow! talk about longetivity.
Weird MC is by all standards a rappatainer .- an Artiste, Lyricist, Producer and Composer whose sound is a Hybrid of HipHop/Afrocentricity/Club Essence plus anything undefined. Her material borders on the political as well as “Party till u drop” Anthems. One minute she taps into ur consciousness with her thought provoking lyrics the next she has u bouncing to her joints in the clubs.
She’s got a distinctive sound which is credible and commercially acceptable. Weird MC’s style also embraces the use of live instruments against the backdrop of cutting edge sounds and Traditional Grooves. She delivers her material in English and Yoruba.
She is Nigeria’s Most Daring Female Artiste …she is a Nigerian HipHop icon
360nobs is proud to give u a 1st listen to a skit, 2 of her tracks and a bonus joint off her soon-to-be-released album “Broken Silence“
“Don’t Stop(Se were)” is an uptempo joint which features Dr Pat and was produced by Legendary Beatz.
“Jehovah” is an inspirational cut featuring Switch and also was produced by Legendary Beatz.
There is funny skit by Funke Akindele. There is also a bonus track for u guys – the remix to the already popular single “Happy Day”.
Looking forward to the album. The Weird One is definitely here to stay for a while longer.
Yup! Get familiar!
