With the massive rate at which the local and international music industries are flooded these days with old and newly discovered talents, you might think you have seen or heard more than enough; but you had better not rush into that namby-pamby judgment because you are just about to get a feel of something that would take you on a newly discovered harmonious journey of unrivalled melody with Dotche’s Gidi Wave.
It is undeniably going to be a new scintillating moment for music lovers in Nigeria and diaspora, as 22 year-old, University of Portsmouth graduate, Chukwubuikem Oguzie, otherwise known as Dotche, releases Gidi Wave, an afro pop, inspired by the contrasting life in Lagos.
Produced by Oz Benzinho, Gidi Wave sure says what the average Lagosian experiences daily in the modern time.
Though an indigent of Imo, Dotche was born and bred in Lagos, hence, his unique style of music is not devoid of the typical street lyrics of Eko that we have all come to savour.
When you are a graduate of Business Administration in one of the leading international Universities, you know all the etiquettes and terms that makes music a serious “business”, away from the wishy-washy content and style we are subjected to in the supposed modern style of music.
Dotche’s “Gidi Wave” would continue to reverberate through your mind as you skim trough the ever bustling streets of Lagos.
