Published

After using the most of 2020 to build up a loyal fan base as a result of emerging as the winner of Big Brother Naija Season 5, using debut EP – “Who is Laycon?” as a successful test run of the rap sector of the Nigerian music scene, staying relevant in the media for positive cause, Fierce Nation Entertainment rapper, Laycon puts out debut album, …Shall We Begin…

On …Shall We Begin… Laycon shows improvement from his previous project with intelligent wordplays, braggadocious bars, flowing with much ease on track as he switches from English to Pidgin English to Yoruba with no hassles detected whatsoever while also establishing himself as a decent vocalist on several tracks.

…Shall We Begin… starts with Laycon’s mother appraising her son while Mayorkun takes over as the featured artiste on the second track, Joeboy and Terri respectively appear on track 6 and 7 while Teni and YKB grace song No. 9 and 10, in their own way adding their touch to the tracks. DwillHarmony the hook on “My Lane”.

Laycon’s predominant genre still stands at Hip-Hop/Rap for his debut album, he however dives heavily into Pop. …Shall We Begin… consits 12 songs running for 32 minutes.

To promote the album, Laycon released “Wagwan” and “Fall For Me” featuring YKB, the video of the latter is available for streaming.

One thing is clear, Laycon made an album for the fans, in that he goes mainly the mainstream and commercial route but did not compromise his exquisite signature wordplays in the process. A very commendable attribute to Conny sir, Laycon.

Most of the lyrics on the album are surrounded around the feminine gender; Laycon’s attraction to different females, in short, the major topic on …Shall We Begin… is love. Listen to the album:
