Kiss Daniel should know by now that he is all the star he needs to shine.
You do not come out with a single on your first trial attempt at breaking into the industry, hit it enormously big and then wait on Tiwa Savage and Davido to be the brink of your rise. No!
After all the hype that was Woju Remix, I must say that the expectation bar dropped below the point of limbo. Does Daniel know he had the most decent delivery of all the vocal features on his smash single? And there was even nothing new to his verses, everything was typical as the original version.
Tiwa was almost very convincing with her rhymes on her ‘getting money like Rihanna, seeing the future sierra, nothing go stop me or never’ line but I hold my opinion that she had no business being on this remix. Then Davido. Trust me, my excitement knew some bounds when I first got wind of the news that he was going to be featured on the remix, and just like I expected, he flunked it! Well, not totally though. I think the only thing I enjoyed was his refined vocal range or he could just have been having a really good voice day, who knows?
The mix on Tiwa’s cut was… sigh! She started to sound like she was muffling out her verse. Asides the fact that they both didn’t fit perfectly on the remix, they’ve barely done anything to change how we perceived Daniel’s star. If they loved the song that much, then they should have it playing on their car stereos and resort to doing their cover versions while taking a shower. Those will suffice.
I think Daniel’s management got unusually carried away with the unexpected glory that was Woju and then their lack of a savage plan led them to slumbering a little too long on 2014. Thank God this is now 2015 and their remix is finally out. ‘Tleast we can now move on quickly from it unless they’ve planned on a video release (I’m sure they have), which pricks conscience over a painful waste of beautiful resource.
See, I know y’all will claim to love the remix three much and shower undue accolades on Tiwa and Davido especially for impressing with their takes on the remix but the ugly truth is that this remix will not be bigger than the original and won’t even be as big as the original. I mean, why won’t anybody take a cue from Patoranking’s Girlie O’ treatment and toe after it’s success that oddly had the same Tiwa Savage on it. You say I’m hating? Whatever please! Unless this is the misfit y’all were watching out for this 2015 from him, then jamming your hands in a fallacious applause would do undeserving justice. This subtle damage already done would clearly surface when y’all his same fans nail him to the cross for falling your hand with his next release just because he failed to meet the outrageously high expectations set for him.
Woju Remix is perhaps the result of forcing something that you already know wasn’t meant to be. Just like oil and vinegar, they can go together but they just don’t mix!
