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:

“I Am Laycon (The Original Soundtrack)” by Laycon is out

Published

on

Fierce Nation Conny Sir, Laycon joins the league of artistes who put out two albums in a single calendar year with the release of the soundtrack album to his reality TV show which airs on ShowMax—I Am Laycon.

With I Am Laycon, Laycon shows a more reflective side of himself over refined rap lyrics, the braggadocious intro “Filthy” and the third song “Monrovia Hf-531” testifies to that; unlike his debut album, “…Shall We Begin”, which had more upbeat and fast paced tracks, “I Am Laycon” yields more to the mellow midtempo trap-soul side of music but still shows Laycon’s ability to make commercial club records like he did “Underrate” and “B. B. W” exemplifying the Afrorap genre tag he claims to perform.

Finito is the primary record producer on Laycon’s sophomore album just like he was on the first. Speaking on this album, Laycon writes: “The #IALbyLaycon project is a compilation of songs I recorded the moment I came out of the BBNaija house last year. It has been a hectic, fun, challenging, fulfilling, life changing 12 months and what better way to celebrate with my iCONs.”

I Am Laycon comprises 13 different tracks over a 29-minute playtime. Although majorly moody, conveying somber reflection on his journey thus far, relationship issues, career and lifestyle accomplishments, Laycon also gives room for bouncy records to flourish.

Azanti releases self-titled EP, “Azanti”

Published

on

After the successful roll-out and positive reception to 2020’s “YP & Azanti, Vol. 1” with Psycho YP, Azanti is finally ready to spread his tentacles and explore, this he does well in the form of the self-titled debut solo EP—Azanti.

With Azanti, we get to hear and experience Azanti in full form over bouncy Lo-Fi productions expressing his feelings and how he is ready to risk it all for his lover on “Dive” but how location and time might be an hindrance on “Time Difference”. On his first project, Azanti does it all, no features, going with the moody R&B/Soul vibes over mid to slow tempo paced song.

Not all tracks conform to the R&B/Soul tag by the way, Azanti made sure to fill his EP with a variety of other genres, on “Underwater”, there is Dancehall, Pop in the case of “Time Difference”, Afrobeat on the loose track—”Sunmoni” but one thing Azanti clarified (if there was any doubt at all) is his ability to dictate the pace, mood and overall ambience on individual tracks without the necessary help of his fellow Apex Village artistes or anybody at that.

When Azanti is not setting the tone vocally, he is busy flexing his sound engineering skills like he did on “Necessary” and Time Difference”. An impressive debut EP I must say.

Tracklist for “Azanti”.
