Joy & Pain


Review by aL Yhusuff @iamdada42

One thing I enjoyed most ’bout this number is the introductory verse by Black Bassey.

The production is impeccably nice. Both acts had this captivating chemistry on the record but it didn’t work out for me especially on the aspect of the delivery which I feel came out a bit fatigued.

To me, this is just a one-listen track. However, big kudos to Suka Sounds for the mastering.


Review by Muyiwa Banire @muyisbanire

After the whole love frenzy from Debie Rise and Black Bassey in the Big Brother show, I wouldn’t conclude by saying it was a publicity stunt to get some attention, but the two sure make a good combo.

‘‘Joy & Pain’’ is an interesting vibe with amazing rhythm. I like the song. Debie rise has an amazing voice, Bassey was probably the shock with his deep strong voice that brought a good amount of harmony in the duet.

Is it my favourite love song? Definitely not!

  2. I dunno bout y’all but this song is beautiful

  3. What the hell?…. This was a cool song. They can improve definitely, but why are you guys trying to rubbish this effort????

    • exactly my thought

  4. If the brain behind the review has a background experience in music, I suppose the comment would have been aimed at showing accolades on Debbie-Rise and Black Bassey for that master piece instead of the bogus critique. Anyways,good job guys. I’m super proud of you. Keep pumping up your steam as apostles of vocals.


    • Thank you…

  6. Does Joy have pain ?

  7. TX is getting so messed up nowadays, From the disorganised design to Trashy reviews. so it’s Jim’s continuous dropping of Oshi That’s A-Class abi? This song is beautiful, or you new writers don’t know the meaning of a duet?
