Olamide – “Melo Melo”

Jim Donnett’s Verdict

I love this song so much that I can’t not talk about it’s video without making reference to the song. Okay, so allow me point out that this is the first of Olamide materials that will earn him deserving recognition globally. Music generally has respect for it’s many genres especially folk because beliefs say it is deeply rooted in cultural contexts which exposits hidden meanings. True or not, I don’t care but whatever reason Olamide dropped his ‘act’ for this coy representation, sure looks like a step in the right direction.

Melo Melo video tones down complexities to very simple forms. Olamide’s combo of a biker’s jac, plain white tee and fedora evens out into a classic bespoke look. The lighting is mostly dim and sometimes with dramatic flashes for effect. There’s ballet dancers sashaying in rhythmic sync to the music. Sounds from the harmonizing blend of Western strings and local percussion transcends the mind to a place of soliloquy as depicted in the monologue which Olamide delivers in grand spectacle. It’s unusual, it’s soft, it’s simply beautiful and Moe Musa totally slayed vis one!

Korede Bello – “Godwin”

Jim Donnett’s Verdict

Like. Seriously! If this is what they made us be in earnest wait for, then they all should pack the hell up and ‘gerrarahia mehn… Yhu noe worram sayeen? Gerrarahia fuh real!’

As in, the flick was witheringly uncreative. It becomes obvious that the delay in releasing the visuals to the chart-topping song was not unconnected with the fact that the creatives in charge lacked appropriate thought concepts for the shoot all this time. Maybe they should have shelved the video release totally or something, I dunno. But what I know is that Godwin video comes up really very short on expectations. It could have been better, way much better. Errr what else? Oh yeah, that dyslexic dance Bello did at the end…  please don’ gemme started on that.

  26. king baddo killd melo melo bt i c nothin bad in godwin video…

  27. Is it just me or is there something epileptic about Korede Bello’s dance steps in this video? So feminine, weird and eww-ish.

    As for the music video, it isn’t as bad as reviewed. Just a regular video. No “wow” factor. I was just enjoying the music, not the video.

    Olamide’s Melo Melo was the BOMB! Both the music and the video.

  28. Keep it up olamide

  29. Olamide badoo nigga rocks everyday.

  30. Long Live the King Badoo! He kills d beat,texture nd d meaning of d music..Melo Melo z actually d best music as at nw for 2015 buh Davido ft Meek Mill z competing..And I fink Korede tried though he shud try harder next tym nd I rate im as an upcoming artiste..Kudos to dem both..

  31. Melo melo, ????§ a great job well done! More grace to ???? elbow, korede also try

  32. Hmmmm… Baddo! Dunno why I keep falling in love wif you. You’re just so good musically! Just keep it up and dnt let any negative words pull you down cus you have a lot to give to d society! Korede, you’re also sighted. Nice1 4rm you.

  33. Hmmmm… Baddo! Dunno why I keep falling in love wif you.. You’re just so good musically! Respect! Dnt let negative words pull you down cus you have a lot to give to the society. Baba miliano, nothing do you oooo. Korede, you’re sighted! Nice1 4rm you too… Bt watchout for me at the Mavins… Its gonna be hot. See you gys at d mavins very soon!

  34. Have been listening and watching Olamide song, but dis melo melo nah one of the best ever. Let’s check the verse 1… The sincerity matters most…
    Eyin fun jowo, eyin mu’enugun
    Apon bepo re mi, akonke igi leyin ogba mi
    Nigba kosowo, nigba ko siola, nigba ko soro
    Ti aye romipin you stood by me
    I know i make some mistakes but i don dey regret
    Now i no go forget to cherish wetin i get
    The first day we met i told you how i felt
    Walahi i dey melt, my baby you’re the best. Thumbs up man.
    I love Korede Bello dancing step, makes m to remember MJ…. Nice 1 dude

  39. Wel if i may decide olamide is d’best raPper ever…no doubt bt korede is one of the best singer in mavins that i cherish because of the way he performs …….and as for the godwin video.well,it good bt dat nt what i expected frm korede becos he can do more than that……but what i observe is that korede is the shy that not withstanding…i love his voice and the way he sings…

  40. Hunnnn, thou the real is that they are both good but the fact is that the lyrics of Melo Melo was gosh! ND the beat of God win was wow! All the same we all know the different sha………

  48. Nice 1

  49. i luv olamide song hd z d best rapper nd korede bello try luv dem both.

  50. I Love this song i always listen this song when i have time.

  51. actually from my own point of view,both musics has different meanings nd interpritations,we ve to first of all look,study and understand the inspirations or rather the prophey or the message in both musics,olamide melo-melo was much more apologising nd regreting what he had done to someone or rather to someone he loves but never got to realise how much.while GODWIN by kOREDE BELLO was a story nd an inspiration i would rather say GODWIN is all about anything you do,anywere u find urself any how it is in life ur first tanks should go to god.

    • Godwin i nice so is melo melo

  52. Lil tee

  53. Melo melo is a verry intresting song,olamide badoo still on top
