ALBUM REVIEW: Mayorkun IsThe Real Mayor Of Lagos
Mayorkun's debut 14-tracker spent two years in the oven and it is definitely worth the wait.
The album shows his growth from creating hit after hit right from the starting lines.
The album begins with the Speroach produced ‘Intro (Feelings)', where he shares his feelings about life and the lessons he learnt.
The beautiful song ends with the singer’s mother praying for him; while in 'Oshepete', D'Banj brings back nostalgia with his harmonica.
Producer, Killertunes delivers on another popular Mayorkun single most music fans love on 'Bobo'.
On 'Mofo' with Patoranking, Killertunes shares production credits with Lussh in one of the album's best songs, as the king of Nigerian dance-hall does not disappoint.
'Redhanded' with Peruzzi, Dremo and Honda is another great song and is produced by DMW's in-house beat maker FreshVDM.
The four artistes pepper the production with punchy lyrics, as they sample from the Shaggy classic song 'It Wasn't Me.'
On the song, Peruzzi shows why he is an accomplished songwriter with lines like 'I be the nigga wey go ginger you/Agali wey dey head ball/Clean my lens and focus my eyes on you/Cameraman with the head shot.'
Other previously released singles, 'Fantasy' and 'Posh' add an infectious vibe that is already familiar with fans.
'Aya Mi' is another irresistible jam that shows Mayorkun’s romantic side like ‘Mama’.
Even though it sounds like a combination of familiar songs, you fall in love with the melody and the talking drums and then of cause Mayorkun’s great vocals.
'Drama Queen' could be counted as one of Mayorkun’s non-commercial songs, as he decides to just make music for music’s sake and show off his abilities as an artiste.
Kiddominant produced two of Mayorkun’s best songs to date in the banging ‘Mama’ and ‘Che Che’, so it is not shocking that he ends the album with these previous singles that gave birth to this hit maker.
The Mayor of Lagos is indeed an impressive debut, but at times Mayorkun’s lyrics seemed to be detached from the stories being portrayed in the videos.
Mayor of Lagos gives Mayorkun the right start to grow into a huge star, maybe even bigger than Davido.
