Laycon puts out debut album, “…Shall We Begin…”

Published

on

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:

Nigerian jollof vs Ghanaian jollof: Ed Sheeran chooses his favourite

Published

on

England-born music maestro, Ed Sheeran, was one of the nobles at The Earth Shot Prize award show which held at London over the weekend but one thing seems to be catching Nigerians interest. That is a video posted by Yemi Alade on her Instagram page wherein the “Shape of You” singer said which he preferred in the unending debate between Nigerian jollof and Ghanian jollof rice.

Both meals although are made from the same source product—rice—contain varying ingredients which gives it its distinctive aroma, taste and flavour, resulting in years of unending debate (both online and offline) on which is the superior one. Of course, you would expect the Nigerians to favour theirs and vice-versa. On this topic, Ed Sheeran looked captivated when chatting with the self-acclaimed Mama Africa, Yemi Alade. He spoke of when he visited Ghana and had to taste their very much prestige jollof, also on how much he noticed people arguing over which geographical zone jollof rice was better.

“So when we were in Ghana . . . we were living with a bunch of Nigerian as well . . . I saw a lot of arguments on which jollof was better” Ed Sheeran says, intriguing Yemi Alade’s interest in the discussion. “I think I prefer Ghanaian jollof”, he coninues much to the displeasure of Yemi as shown by her stomping her foot on the ground, sighingly she utters the word “No” in a stressed manner. Ed Sheeran in a bid to cool the tension eventually revealed his preference is that way only because he has not visited Nigeria before.

Dekbaby shares first EP, “Next One”, on Audiomack

Published

on

Dekbaby releases his first body of work after putting out two singles, one last year (“Ibadi”) and another (“Abeg”), May 28th this year. He titles his first project—Next One. An EP comprising of 6 tracks including his debut single, “Ibadi”, which seats on the sixth position, tracklist wise. Next One mostly includes songs in which Dekbaby shares his affinity for the feminine gender but at strategic points on his debut EP, he makes sure to show his retrospective side, singing about the hustle and the dream to amass a lot of money on the first track (“Easy”) and fourth song (“Ghetto Boyz”).

While Dekbaby might have kept songwriting at a reasonable minimum, choosing not to do too much, rather using repetition to emphasise his points on the songs, he did put a lot of thoughts into writing and visualising his pain on the retrospective tracks stated above; the other songs, although are mainly about his love for women—their bodies and other attributes, contain danceable beats which would have listeners bumping their heads at the barest minimum. Heywhykeyz is the solely featured artiste on Next One, he appears on “Ghetto Boyz”.

You would do well by listening to Dekbaby’s debut project, the EP—Next One—on Audiomack.

Sarkodie and Zlatan advise broke people to leave the “VIP” on new song produced by Rexxie

Published

on

Ghana’s finest and Zanku lord reunite on Rexxie produced song, “VIP”, spitting pompous bars with catch hook broke-shaming club goers who are not on their level socially, sternly advising them to “leave the VIP . . . Go to the regular” in order to make “space for the ballers”

As expected on a song like this, braggimg about wealth and the ability to spend at will, getting any girl of his choice is what Sarkodie brings to the table while Zlatan adds his charismatic adlibs all over the song, spicing it up with the interesting hook, a much needed flavour. Rexxie does his thing too, making a fast paced instrumental to match Sarkodie’s flow.

“VIP” can be streamed below:
