ALBUM – KLITORIS

ARTISTE – BRYMO

PRODUCER – MIKKYME JOSES

DURATION – 35 MINUTES

Since his departure from Chocolate city record label, BrymO has been consistent in dropping albums that are globally acclaimed brilliant works of art. From Merchants, Dealers & Slaves to Tabula Rasa.

Following up on the trend and sticking to the things that works best for him, he released his fifth studio album (3rd since leaving Choc City) titled ‘Klitoris’ which is a Greek word for ‘Key’. It also doubles for the sensitive part of the female genitalia; thus explaining the reason for the internet uproar as BrymO announced the title of his album and also dropped the album art online among the ever conservative Nigerian Music industry. Despite the controversy surrounding the album, the work has been generally accepted.

Klitoris is a work dedicated mostly to a woman by the singer as its general message embodied in the album is Love. Lets get down to the track by track review of the songs……

Naked: A perfect kick off to the album. Brymo’s vocals delivery in tandem with Esse here is absolutely captivating, powerful, brilliant and deep. His striking lyrics “And it will be worth it, no I don’t deserve it, take all I have please, love me, leave me naked” one would say anchors the message embodied in the track. With a powerful beat and overall mastery, Brymo delivered class. A perfect loveable song to open the album with.

Dem dey go: Simple but yet classy production by Mikkyme Josses followed Brymo’s brilliance and crafty lyrics which mainly addresses the current boiling situation the country is facing.

Happy Memories: At first, the piano welcomes to an ambience nothing short of love, followed by the heavy distinct bass drum and hi hats; thus delivering a perfect beat worthy to receive the carefully laid down tale of a man’s longing for the happy memories of a long lost love which while it lasted was the happiest thing that happened to the couple.

Ko S’aya mi: A nice creative soulful track with clear poetic justice delivered on it. Majorly an album filler.

Alajo Shomolu: A playful mid-tempo track which will surely have both old and young grooving to the song as Brymo employs his story telling prowess on the song. The track embodies a message which is; hard work does pay off. Brilliant piece.

Something Good Is Happening: An amazing fusion of Rock and Juju, and he murdered it with his vocal dexterity. Major upbeat vibe amazingly delivered. The kinda jam you slam in the morning before heading out.…Something good is happening… a way of saying brace up for this is just the start of BRYMO!!!

Billion Naira Dream: My personal favorite song on the album. An inspirational song that will surely appeal to all success driven individual, rekindling lost hopes and aspirations whilst maintaining his slow/mid-tempo beat. Truly “the future you speak of is here

Lets Make Love: As the name of this track states, so is the track. Sensuality penned down and gracefully laid on a soulful beat. Rich content with deep meaning.

Mirage: An excellent romantic piece. Mirage, that kinda song that will go well at that cuddle moment with your partner whilst reassuring her of your love and commitment. “Let us get high and fall from the sky, maybe we will grow wings, maybe we wil not”. Wonderful piece…

The Way The Cookie Crumbles: Brymo proves that he is mastery personified on this well constructed reggae and electro beat… goes all the way to ‘wow’ with his soulful voice, having fun on the beat whilst pushing his message across.

The Girl From New York: Borders on a certain girl from New York who is prying into his life and on how much he has. A perfect epilogue to the album. one may say it’s an album filler as the song lasted 1.13 sec.

Haven gone through this amazing piece of work, I must say Mikkyme Joses didn’t fail in providing us with amazing beats only BrymO can lycically murder whilst still passing his message in each track. I can assure you that this is an album worth buying as I don’t see the possibility of it fading soon. Its evergreen every time its comes on.

ALBUM REVIEW:KISS DANIEL-NEW ERA

Kiss.jpgCREDITS

Artiste – Kiss Daniel

Album – New Era

Features – Sugar Boy.

Producers – MasterKraft, Young John, Jay Sleek, BeatBurx & KemzBeatz

Label – G-Worldwide (May,2016)

If you have been keen and observant on the recent internet buzz, you would’ve known that G-Worldwide act KISS DANIEL had an album launch party recently to celebrate the debut of his debut album titled NEW ERA.

The 20 track album has only one artist featured which is his label mate SugarBoy. Despite that, he managed to deliver an astounding “Love Potion” album.

This is a huge step for Kiss I must say because unlike most upcoming acts whose debut albums are usually filled with one feature or the other, he manages to pull it off with just one artist.

Anyways, I copped the album as well and about to drop my personal review of some songs on the album.

NEW ERA ALBUM

kiss-daniel-new-era-tracklist.png

All God: Opening to a Young John beat, Kiss gives credits to God for his success thus far. This is evident in his lyrics “when am ballin, it’s all God oo/ when nothing dey/ it’s still God oo”.

Alone: ” storm is over now, listen to my story now” with this intro line, kiss summarized this number. The skit portrayed how hard it was for him getting to play at events as an upcoming artist; or so I think. The general message here is ‘believe in yourself and that easy does it.

Are You Alright: Well, ardent ears will detect the little tweak of beat from Alone to give this cool number. Anyways, this is the kinda song you jam to when you really want that “feel good” moment.

Duro: Yikes!!!! Kemsbeatz murdered on this beat meeeeen…. Damn!!! And trust ya boy Kiss Daniel to pull through… this number is just a pure “love portion”. That kinda jam you slot in when chilling with bae alone… lols.. Inna mean??? I rate this number 8/10… Ya, I did.

Ghetto Boys: Can anything go wrong with Kiss Daniel and Sugar Boy on a track??? Naa Meen…. From Raba to Molue.. its been pure synergy between this duo.. lovely rendition from these G-Worldwide acts.

Gobe: My second favorite song on the album… from the beat to the feel good easy flow by Vado himself… Ya, that’s Kiss Daniel’s alias now. Kiss talks on his struggles, his rise to fame, his overall life story.. Nice rendition.

Jombo: A potential hit track here… On a Pure monster beat by MasterKraft, kiss Daniel tells of his trials with one Amaka and Amaka’s parents….. Lyrics like ” your father is violent/ your mother is black belt, she sabi karate oo” gives an insight into the whole saga. All in all, the track is a hit ‘potentially’

Kudi: Am guessing Kudi broke his heart and on “February 24 kicked him out the door” but now “she is famzing on the internet” wanting to reconnect. Well the boy is saying, “I don’t want to be part of your life anymore”

All in all the album didn’t disappoint. It is a decent work of art from lyrical content to the instrumentals and the ability to pass across the respective messages in each tracks.
