Olamide – Skelemba ft. Don Jazzy


Jim Donnett’s Verdict

Skelemba sounds like something really exciting. Olamide being his usual self (a bit here and there, then eventually all over the place) and then adding it with the chucklesome vocal nature of the doro boss, Don Jazzy. It’s hip, it’s fun and gets you to let loose in the best of one’s free spirit.

Funke’s Verdict

I absolutely love the beat!

That said, first is Don Jazzy going to start featuring on tracks on the regular? Hmmm! I’m of the opinion that that while his voice is really good on ad libs, he’s not quite ready to take full verses or, could it be that his voice just didn’t fit on this track? Oh well… I’m still trying to figure that out. Bottom line is it didn’t quite do the trick on Skelemba.

Meanwhile, Olamide…*sigh* There’s just  something about about his songs. Take this track for example, candidly speaking it’s the opposite of meaningful, more like he picked some words and played mix match. However, you can’t help but nod… at the very least to it (thanks to the beat of course).  I’m undecided.

aL Yhusuff’s Verdict

Sometimes good things come to an end suddenly. This 3 minute song is the IT. Badoo and Don Jazzy teaming up is extremely satisfactory. Don Jazzy’s bass line adds a plus to the song. The Skelemba phrase is catchy and has some street credibility. The beat? Nice. Pheelz does a nice job. And Badoo? He is bad! This song is a delight for the party goers.

Chidinma – Martha


Jim Donnett’s Verdict

Martha is soooo unlike Chidinma. The afro soul style is quite an appeal, executed with lyrical idioms and parables of old. Mrs Ekile’s interlude although may not be understood by all (no thanks to the language barrier) but the theme of the song pretty much relays her communication of thought. Martha shows that Ms Kedike is not just a pitch songstress, her music has depth and always touches on a general context. It’s also in my opinion that the pidgin adaptation made for an astounding delivery. Beautiful tribute!

Funke’s Verdict

Though there’s a bit of language barrier, from her explanation I could totally understand where she’s coming from. Chidinma never fails to amaze me with her strong vocals, though she didn’t play around with it that much here.

Yes I got some Asa/TY Bello vibe listening to Martha, however I was a tad disappointed her mum didn’t sing. I guess we’ll just have to make do with what she served… right? Meanwhile, how much longer do we have to wait for Chidinma’s next album?

BTW… ones mother’s soup always tastes the best!

aL Yhusuff’s Verdict

Chidinma’s Martha is quite a touching tribute to her mother Mrs Ekile. The song actually talks about the bravery of a mother and the challenges her mother faced owning to the fact that (Chidinma) was born blind. Chidinmma’s vocals are very captivating. Her petite body could be deceiving when it comes to delivery of vocals. To me, this is a very nice song forgetting about the fact that the lyrics actually draw the sympathy of the listener. The beat suits the song perfectly. And Mrs Ekile’s narration in Igbo language gives it that homely feeling.
