Runtown’s “Mad Over You” … Not So MAD?

Mad Over You

Daniel’s Review

Runtown is an artiste that has endeared himself to the Nigerian masses in the past with classic hits like The Latest, Walahi, Bend Down Pause, etc.

He had been off the scene for a while due to various disputes with his record label but has bounced back with a bang. Can we say Runtown is ready to recover in 2017? On the evidence of ‘Mad Over You’, you’d definitely not be wrong. Mad Over You is simply a Ghanaian-infused loved song.

The Del’ B produced track has been a hit from its release date, shooting up to number 38 on the billboard chart and we can say is the first street/club banger in Nigeria in 2017. Del’ B must be credited for using the beat-count style.

Rating – 4/5


Jim Donnett’s Review

Truth be told, it is so good to hear Runtown back in the music and really saucing again on his latest release.

Now here’s the thing, the style adopted in this song, which has raised a lot of eyebrow is pretty much a synonymous factor that can be evidenced in many of Runtown’s music releases. Only that this time, it was laced on the so-raved Ghanaian music trend; particularly the kinda sound peddled by Mr Eazi. But I think the Ghanaian trend sample really isn’t even the issue here. The genius in Runtown and Mad Over You remains unchanged, whether there’s an external influence or not. Rather, it dotes on his versatility to evolve with trends and still deliver, which is something we can’t really say much about for Mr Eazi right now.

That being said, the craze for this tune might not be unconnected with the fact that the ‘eazi-trend’ has become the industry’s new deal. In the same vein, it might also be that fans are just overly excited to have their Ghetto University alumni back. Still, it falls very much into the generic series of Nigerian songs – the ever growing subject of infatuation and of course, girls! But he totally killed it, and without any doubts whatever. Kudos to producer, Del’ B for glistening his shine some more.

Rating – 3.8/5

  12. You can not come out and write gibberish on someone’s work as if you can do better, Runtown Mad over you has gotten more recognition than he expected, he didn’t promote the song as he should, but it is a banger, Runtown has been under reported, underated, you are here trying to fuse in Mr Eazin yet Mr eazi was very useless and watery in the collaboration! I just don’t want to go into this with you lots.. but honestly both of you have inherent problem in choosing good music. Runtown is not Mr eazi, he doesn’t need all the media push. you all are heaping on Mr eazi. listen guys, download the remix of mad over you ft Mr eazi, you’ll will agree with me that these bunches of misbehaviour are ranting online in vain!
