Olamide Drops Music Video For Fans Favourite “Triumphant”

The fifth track off Olamide’s recently released album, “Carpe Diem” features fast rising star, Bella Shmurda

The fifth track off Olamide’s recently released album, “Carpe Diem” features fast rising star, Bella Shmurda. Right from the first beat drop, it is easy to tell the song would turn out fine.

The signature ‘rii’ producer tag of legendary Nigerian producer, Pheelz, kicks of the amazing track. Bella Shmurda blesses listeners with his melodic voice on the chorus of the song with a well-pitched voice, knowing when to rise and fall. “Man I triumphant, And I’ve been through a lot, Many people wrote me off, But God no gree, Kan le dayon man” Bella Shmurda made known as he recounts all the obstacles he had to hurdle on his rise to fame, sharing with us the blessings he now enjoys in fame, money and women on the first verse.

The man of the hour, graces the song quite delightfully, reminiscent of his “Street OT”, “Eyan Mayweather” days, in fact we can call this style of Olamide’s verse and rap on “Triumphant”, his OG Days Flow as he shares with us the struggles of life he underwent to make it to the stage he currently is in.

He raps about how he has lost close ones to death, his mom and dad, his ‘partners’ or guys, and how he still has close associates in jail serving time.

He went further to reveal he had a state of mental breakdown and depression at at time in his life but people, especially fans and media did not notice when he said: “Mo dye irun mi yellow / Mo tun dye e si green / People think say na swag but I was loosing my mind”. A reference between 2014 and 2017 when he dyed his hair into different colours but people taught he was just creating trends.

Going further on his verse, he revealed truly that now he is triumphant and left message for youths still out there grinding especially the ghetto youths by saying: “O le wa lati ghetto ko ni sense / Ko de wa classy” telling them they can change the negative narrative behind ghetto youths.

The Clarence Peters’ directed music video shows Olamide and Bella Shmurda in a desert-like location as they performs their verses. In the video, it is easy to spot a young boy climbing up the sand in the desert, which might be a depiction for the phrase: made it out the mud – a term relating to somebody making it from a difficult or bad circumstance into greater heights.

Clarence Peters used the art of motion picture in a black and white form as a montage to explain keynote lyrics like when Olamide rapped about his dad and mum death, his close guys still in prison; him going through the phase of changing his hair colour; him being triumphant, stamping his name in history books and more. To say the least, this video for “Triumphant” is truly inspiring. You can watch the video below:

Rage as Fela Kuti is not among the inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2021 class

Published

on

Godfather of Afrobeat, Fela Anikulapo Kuti who received the posthumous honour to be among those vying to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2021 some few months back, sadly failed to secure a spot despite being top two on the voting polls.

Fela Kuti gets shunned from the inductees despite being top two.

Today, May 12, the committee announced the inductees by means of a 3-minute video through president and CEO, Gregg Harris. Fela was nominated in the Performers Category, amassing a total of 545,000+ votes, making him the second most voted act after Tina Turner (548,000+ votes) but to the surprise of the masses, Fela was not included in the list of inductees.

Shockingly included are performers like rap icon and mogul – JAY-Z and LL Cool J who failed to secure a top five spot on the poll, infact, they were the least voted acts when voting concluded.

Although, quite frankly there is a disclaimer on the website were the poll was conducted, stating that votes do not guarantee induction but for a Top 2 voted act in Fela Anikulapo Kuti, that should not even be the case and Nigerians have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment at the ‘rigging’, ‘clout chasing’ and inconsiderate conduct regarding how the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame committee unjustly treated the voting polls and Fela Kuti.

On what might have transpired regarding the voting stage and selection of inductees, Fela’s first son, Femi Kuti had this to say:

Ruger releases visuals for “Bounce”

Published

on

Ruger aka the eye-patch man (at least that is what I call him) scheduled release for new video Bounce finally gets to the big screen. The video is directed by Prior Gold.

Bounce, a certified fan favourite off of the “Pandemic” EP by Ruger is a fine mixture of Pop intertwined with Dancehall-type vocals and lyrics. The video has Ruger showing public display of affection (PDA) to his lover, appraising her for her big back side, using catchy melodies to call on her to come “wiggle that booty and whine” for him.

The simple but colourful aesthetic stands out in the video. My favourite scene has to be when a Rastafari looking fellow tried to steal the show from Ruger, by trying to woo Ruger’s chick but was bodied and put in a cooler while Ruger dances on it, controlling the crowd and the party continued like a murder did not just occur.
