Posted by Tyler on May 28, 2014 in Editorial · 59 Comments


tooXclusive presents “TX Review” a weekly column created due to popular demand from readers requesting for a reviews hence our editorial team crafted this section to quench your thirst.

“TX Review” features a jury of three jurors who give impartial verdicts on three popular songs released in the week in review. The first edition of the column has Oriste Femi’s “Double Wahala (Remix)”, Patoranking’s Girlie ‘O’ (Remix) and Asa’s “Dead Again” on the stand to face the scrutiny of the jury.

The verdicts below!

Oritse Femi – Double Wahala (Part 2) ft. D’Banj

Tyler’s Verdict

Shockingly seasonal chart topper Oriste Femi enlisted D’Banj to feature on the ‘part two’ of his Fela inspired smash hit ‘Double Wahala’ and we must say the outcome is shockingly distasteful. Singing is not D’Banj’s greatest strength yet he struggles to stay on key while sing-talking about his 10 years in the music business, success and the undying love the ‘kokolets’ have for him.

Thankfully the song still retains some wow features that her predecessor possessed nonetheless the sequels fails to live up to the hype.

Rating: 1.5/5

Funke’s Verdict

The original version of Oritse Femi’s ‘Double Wahala’ was really good. The song made sense from start to finish; his lyrics, especially the blend of Yoruba slangs with English, together with the beat made it appealing to both street and urban fans. Paying tribute to the legendary Fela and using his famous ‘arararara’ was a nice touch.

Which is why hearing the song’s remix featuring D’Banj was heartbreaking. Knowing the calibre of artiste D’Banj is and his ability to make any song sound good, it becomes obvious that he’s struggling to get back his groove. He saying “he’s been ten years in the game and still on his grind” is just laughable. This remix just sounds like a waste of perfectly good music. Yes, the lyrics especially the part he did in Yoruba was nice (thanks to Oritse Femi’s input), I can’t help but wonder if Wizkid or Olamide wouldn’t have been a better choice. However it is a good attempt, I just happen to prefer the original version.

Rating: 2/5

Jimmy’s Verdict

Obviously this song is one of the few songs to have rocked the year 2014. The song has been enjoying massive air plays both on radio and television. The remix was highly anticipated after it was made known to the public that it would feature Africa’s biggest act D’Banj.

Of course D’Banj always bring something new to every song he lays his voice on. This is no exception in his delivery to the remix of Oritse Femi’s monster hit. He didn’t stray away from the message of the song neither did he bring down the tempo. The collaboration was a success making the remix a potential hit.

Rating: 3/5


Asa – Dead Again

Tyler’s Rating

Asa starts the campaign for her third studio album “Dead Again” with an emotive mid-tempo ballad that teases memory of the likes of Adele and Emeli Sande. “So it was you, you picked up the knife and then you cut me in two, stabbed in the back, then you twisted it in, oh oh you left me for dead again”; the hawks wails about betrayal, deception and heart-break on the second chorus over rumbling drums and stirring strings after starting the song on a low and progressing to commendable heights. “Dead Again” wows more at the bridge when the brilliant instrumentation becomes more quiet allowing Asa to push the pain of the song through her voice.

Rating: 4.5/5

Funke’s Verdict

Listening to Asa’s “Dead Again”, I can’t help but remember Adele’s “Set Fire To The Rain”. It’s a song that raises one’s emotions, her soulful lament and piano together with the foot tapping drumbeat goes straight to the heart. Way to go Asa!

Rating: 4/5

Jimmy’s Verdict

It’s a beautiful song that talks about deception and betrayal in a relationship. Lyrically, Asa has done very well mixing it with a strong and definite voice. Instrumentally the beat was able to portray the message of the song and with loads of catchy vocal hooks to sing along to.

Rating: 4/5


Patoranking – Girlie ‘O’ (Remix) ft. Tiwa Savage

Tyler’s Verdict

Patoranking almost hit the bull’s eye with his sizzling Tiwa Savage assisted remix of “Girlie ‘O’”. Produced by Wizzy Pro; the remix features the original instrumentation as well as lyrics with a vocal contribution from Mrs. Balogun. Despite the fact that Savage and Pato voices blended and sounded fanatastic together, the remix leaves one demanding for a little more majorly because it seems Tiwa’s parts were recorded at a different location and pasted on Pato’s original recording hence the cut lacks that magic. Nonetheless they both deserve a standing ovation.

Rating: 3/5

Funke’s Verdict

When Patoranking dropped “Girlie ‘O’”, he absolutely got my heart. The lyrics, his voice, the beat and even the story line in the video were so well put together I was totally impressed.

Hearing he was doing a remix of the song with Tiwa Savage, I couldn’t wait to hear it knowing Tiwa’s vocal prowess. It’s a good piece and their voices blended well together. Tiwa’s use of Yoruba (although sparse) was nice and I agree, she really is good for the soul.

While I’m not “wowed” by the song, I applaud the effort put into it.

Rating: 3/5

Jimmy’s Verdict

Patoranking doesn’t neead any introduction because he’s presently the new kid on the block. With his two hit singles Alubarika and Girlie O paving the way for him as an A-list artiste.

The remix of Girlie O featuring Marvin first lady Tiwa Savage was a surprise to many. The song which has a reggae feel obviously isn’t the kind of song you wuld find Tiwa Savage on, but she was able to pull it on. She was able to transform the song into a love duet. Patoranking also was able to work smoothly with Tiwa Savage making a good blend of two individual style to produce something beautiful.

Rating 3/5

  12. If You ask me…Jimmy’s Verdict is totally not acceptable and irrelevant esp. on Pato’s, he sounds more sentimental and unprofessional …Tyler hits the point like its supposed to be…

    On Double wahala, i didn’t feel D’banj’s impact on it likewise Pato’s…Tiwa Savage isn’t just the right choice for the remix! she messed the song up just like Tyler quoted “Like her parts were recorded at a different location and pasted on Pato’s original recording”

    On Asa’s Dead again…! she’s an amazing songstress, am speechless, she always knows how to serenade his fans!


  13. No need for harsh words against Tyler or anyother person here. They are only sharing their opinion; and you are entitled to yours. Of course you wouldn’t compel them to agree with yours vis-a-vis
    Personally I didn’t like D’banj’s delivery on “Double Wahala remix” and I said it here openly. Every art work is meant to be criticized before it could be generally appreciated. Why do people who are not even musically inclined be arguing and insulting others cos of music? C’mon, sit down and learn…

Y can’t u go to d studio an sing ur owne song? am not sure if u even av any talent u r dere befing y he is making his money and if u r stil diouting him u can google him and u wil find him wen sum1 is good let’s agree dat he’s good and stop befing and morova oritsha femi saw 2face and sound sotan b4 he went 4 dbanj, dbanj is in good form dats y he cal him and plSs jst ans dis question! If dbanj is ur blood broda will u say he is singing rubish? If u don’t av ans to dat u kip quiet

  21. double wahala is kinda anoyin o, femi no get money feature wizkid ni?

  22. wasting of money

  23. Dey is no point arguing as dbanj as already said “ote as u dey der dey hate mi am making my money, wetin u wan do I dan do am o wer u wan go I dan pass am o” bit dat b4 critising

  24. That was a nice piece,why would pple just criticize judges like this ? It was their own opinion remember, drop yours and stop hating….I didnt even bother listening to Double Wahala Rmx cos I already know what to expect,aint hating here,Dbanj’s lost his musical form…..I hope he realizes this,not the fame…

    • Silence! Look before you leap make dem no fall your hand …Opomulero se bon ni Bangalee! Olorun mi Labo mi,,,, if you want review song listen to the track while you are alone when you don’t have to listen to other peoples Opinion putting your personal feeling about the artist aside then you will see what a well done Job Dbanj did on the track, and I wouldn’t say Asa didn’t tried but she didn’t do up to Expectation the beat was dope and the lyrics was excellent but the attitude and those charisma of her previous works were missing , and you right pato and tiwa on the remix wasn’t so Great, the old lines were still intact and were not disrupt its just more of a mix that a remix lol

  25. Dbanj is nt good on d track, u self enter studio go sing bastard people. U seat down der de hate am , dbanj is making money , u beter go discoever ur talent bad belle people

  26. From onset when it comes to music I don’t like d,banj,,, he’s gat somfin else dat captures mewhich is his attitude ,, I love him for dat,, from on set he has been backed up by the likes of don jazzy,, and it was so painfull mohit had to slow wande coal down for d’banj, wande’s time was waisted cos dey wanted d’banj to stay on his spot has mohit best hit maker ………. Dbanj is a flop on the double wahala remix ,,,,, that song pass that boring lyrics, and poor vocals …….

  27. I don’t know why people keep hating D’banj when dis guy is busy making more cash everyday & fame for himself. If u don’t know, u said he doesn’t know how to sing but he keep working himself up & very relevant in d world music. Endorsement keep coming, contracts, good business & even big awards keep coming everytime & u’re still sitting down on a long thing saying he doesn’t knw how 2 sing, what better things have u urself done 4 ur life? Ask urself b4 u criticize or judge another person

    • Nice one guy let em keep hating D’banj….. He just got an award on behalf of Africa @ the recently held world music award!!!!

  28. D’banj’s input in the song is very good..bin on my replay since..TX you guys need to chill

    • u right bro… I just love the rhythm in his voice

  29. I already knew even before listening dat d’banj will be a flop on the track …. D’banj is not the riGht artiste to be featured in dat kinda music, its absolutely not the type of music he can sound GoOd on plus D’banj most times sound weak on collabos …I suggest him to have featured sound sultan or even Tu baba … Coz I don’t think wizKid or Olamide will sound GoOd either

    • Dbanj’s delivery on double wahala, remix. Wasn’t it. Don’t no why u all shouting. Don’t u no wats public opinion. Am sure Dbanj, asked to be on that track.
      Dbanj is good, but on that track… Wasn’t d best 4 d remix. Like 30/100, in comparism 2 to the original version.

  30. As 4 me i think he tried his best 2 put more flavour on dat song, its realy a good work for an artist 2 fit in 2 dat concept. If u dnt sing u wl say “he tried nt” bt if u realy sings lyk me u av 2 say big up 2 d’bang! No b small tin 2 sing!

  31. ?? and D’BANJ on our way up.. TX crew 0n U????????? way d0wn. BL00DY MURF**KERS

  32. U all need not to argue.its obvious. Dat tx dislikes dbanj personality.the double wahala na afro type of song so u need somone dat has the afro tempo which is dbanj.u cant feature a rapper or a rb. Into ano afro type of song. He is not gud is been regonised in d world, wat else do u want in life dan to b successful in anything u venture into.he is made with music or no music.let dis guy rest.kudos to tooxclusive crew.

  33. Mr n mrs writter, lemme tell u the more u percecute dis guy call dbanj d more he come out stronger, am so sure it was orisha femi dat wanted him on the remix n wen u talk abt remix u listen again, dbanj lyrics is one of the best, if u are non yoruba u don’t hv anytin to say, like I will b d last to write or critise phno work cus am a yoruba n I can’t even understand a line of wat he is sayin I only nod to the sound, dbanj is not one of dos dat recycle beat we can go back to all his album not like oda, he doesn’t go the ways of oda, he understand the game, tell me ow many artiste we hv in naija dat has stayed off scandal n he monthly dose sumtin big even tuface can’t say such pls allow dis guy for me double wahala address a lot of issue in ma life cus he reminded haters abt wat is goin on in his life and is the bitter truth. I rest ma case. For paton d videeo is nt neeeded bt d remix isn’t bad for asa am her fan I dnt like her kind of music same to nneka.

    • Orisha ko irumole ni…

  34. Cool music.

  35. If u still doubt banga lee google and search u find him…

  36. Haters go 2 hell d’banj simple d best……I love him die

  37. @iamdbanj is the best..if u no blv go hang life,been successful in wateva u do is wat mata en u all kn @iamdbanj is a very successful musician ever since en up till nw..kip hating while he kip on making cash

    • @jimmy live dem wit dere double whahala y he dey mak he money @iamdbanj u r really eja la frm d ocean

  38. Wow! Cool track tho…but frankly speaking..D’banj is nothing without donjazzy…..his musical skills have detroriated…Chibok Girls rescued?

    • You are real Don du my friend ,Dbanj is the best selling artist in Nigeria and he didn’t win that with the aids of your DON J,you shouldn’t comment from your selfpity for Don jazzy, I knew you all pity Don jazzy that Dbanj left him, Either you want it or not they will have to split one day so Get over it, Dbanj is doing just fine without Don Jazzy!

  39. I think all these TX crew are wack, if not instead of a proper review of d songs, you go on telling us what songs it looks likes and the type of song its so you would have feature Wizkid on that kind of tempo? if that’s the proper way to review song why does it needs to be reviewed in the first place? if you have any vendetta against Bangalee you beta just call him for an interview moreover you need someone to tells and tutors you on what Good Music is All about, its that DoroNonsence that your Don Jazzy is doing that you call Good Music? Let’s face it Dorobuchi or whatever its call is just all about the beats I can’t find the lyrics and all the sweet and fantastic voices were the only reason the song had its Airplay!!The only Hit I respected from mavin crew that’s not only base on the bit is SURULERE SO far!! Face the Fact Dbanj have never stop been a versatile artist he’s not the kind of artist that Change his style he has been a super hit singer and in case you don’t notice non of his song is not a banger to his fans and lovers that’s why remain the number one ogbonge Bangalee of Nigeria music industry,Eja nla ride on jor,If this TX GUys kip doing were ! Eyin boys……

  40. Did that b***ch says Dbanj on the track was heartbreaking? I don’t think that heart will ever gets whole again babe! Am sorry!! not untill you realize you ve just been beefing dbanj unnecessarily! Funke you needs to learn more about music and stop following what you heard from your friend non of them knows much about music either ok?
