Hol’ up! This is a smash, yo! A major jam with the whoosh of classic everywhere around it. Cool stuff. We love this particularly because it’s been a bit since we heard the effortless Tuface dazzle on a piece, a desire so flaming even his jumping on the “Woju” freestyle couldn’t quell.
Efa unites one of Nigeria’s finest in Plantashun Boiz for this latest track offering ‘Fall In Love’ (as his press release says) even though in the real sense of things all we hear on the chorus and hook is 100% Tuface. The catchy, love tune is a Mr. Smith production, dropping just in time to clear the silence from the Now Muzik rapper. It is some solid effort from the rapper whom we last really heard something big from on Phyno’s NGNG. And even though talks of him having Plantashun Boiz on this comes across as more of PR than it is actual, it’s allowed given how this is interesting, and poised between nostalgia and youthful love.
Things start off quite smooth and rhythmic but gain momentum quickly in that 00:33 – 00:35 mark when the piano switches, the “…and I still miss you baby” line is sung and the beats cascade into the succeeding parts of Efa’s first verse. Then Tuface takes absolute command with the bridge and then the chorus from the 00:45 point. Good fusion and vocal balance. Compelling production, engaging storyline; Efa’s shine or the lack of it would be based on his ability to recreate memorable, punchy stuff as this; otherwise he might remain that one good guy who never gets to see the light of day.
Listen and rate, a Hit or a Miss?
