For all the triviality of Jazzy on here, Maleek Berry is a beast for this one. Then we are wowed as we listen and realize it is Reekado Banks who delivers perhaps the shiniest parts on the song. Wale is bad ass! And Olamide is cool, though bringing forth nothing breathtaking.
Don Jazzy can do no wrong. Actually, Don Jazzy will do no wrong as far as music is concerned. Yes. And when you feel the urge to counter this, take some time out of your busy schedule and look at D’Prince, a singer-rapper who is fairly skilled at best then juxtapose with all the young man has achieved in aspects of music, endorsement and whatnot. The reality of this is that if Prince puts out a material today, he is bound to scoop some major cream off the beehive industry that is the Nigerian music scene today.
Anyways, this is more about “Allelu” than it is about D’Prince. And on this new cut –though I think the man is spotless in terms of his beat-making and artistry– Jazzy fails to do anything exceptional or arresting. He is inferior and unusually poor in delivery, quite a far cry from what we’d expect. But we’ll let it slide.
We should let it slide because for all the triviality of Jazzy on here, Maleek Berry is a beast for this one. Sheer dope, banging studio magnificence is how we should term what Maleek does here. Yes indeed.
Olamide is cool. He renders in the typical Naija lingo, though bringing forth nothing breathtaking, or extra special. All he does is make allusions to the herb and sex and things, which is excusable given his hip hop leaning.
Wale is bad ass! He is exceptional and straight up hip hop on this, in spite of his rickety attempts at doing a Naija flow. We love.
We are wowed as we listen to this and realize it is Reekado Banks who delivers perhaps the shiniest parts on the song. His performance on the show is as pleasant as it is blazing.
In all, this is a successful track from many angles, particularly as it is radio-ready and star studded. The African beats and clap sounds that close the curtain on this are too superb for words, such masterful blend of the motherland with an otherwise Western genre. Bliss! Repeat-worthy effort, this.
Listen and rate, a Hit or a Miss?
