A REVIEW of the Album;
Artiste – Falz the Bahd guy
Record Label – Bahd Guys Records (2017)
Falz the Bahd guy never disappoints, Every material seem to get better as its being churned out. After kicking off the Year with the Viral single ‘Weh done sir‘ there has been no dull musical moments with Falz who is currently one of Nigeria’s rave of the moment and he doesn’t seem to be slowing down any moment. Falz is one of the few Nigerian Artistes who takes their time in Cooking their Projects properly before serving it to the consumers. He’s been doing it right from the days of ‘Shakara’ Mixtape And he has done it again on the ‘27‘ Album by creating iterations of Hip-hop, Afro-pop and Reggae, fusing every soundscape, and yielding positive results.
‘27‘, the Rapper’s third full-length record, does not stray from all of his other projects. It is a True Life experience inspired, motivating and comical ride, fitted by his flawless Story telling ability.
Standout track ‘Alright’ fuses Reggae-ton into a Mid tempo killer single.’The Lamba Song‘ is the ultimate sound to hack radio, parties and distant African markets. ‘Child of the wold’ the most touching track on the album has a very fascinating and emotional story line. Sir Dauda supplies a very sonorous interesting sonorous and catchy sound to ‘Boogie’ .Wande coal as always, didn’t disappoint as he puts up a phenomenal delivery on ‘Way’.
‘Confirm‘ is a motivational song to gear up the Hustlers and also an epistle to the Internet Entrepreneurs (fraudsters) wey no get game but they wan Ball. There’s also a Trap influence on ‘My money’,plus a blend of apala from Terry Apala.
‘Get me‘, The most hilarious song on the album is a fusion of Nigerian Mid-Tempo Genre popularly known as ‘pon pon sound’ and Afro-pop, spiced with partial sampling of Fela’s popular song ‘sorrow, tears and blood’. ‘I do it‘ is a Mechanical hard hip-hop genre …i do it for the nights when i go take award/, then i go give my speech say na God/. Like its predecessor ‘La fete‘, ‘Le vrai Bahd guy‘ shows the Linguistic side of the Bahd guy, it’s a fusion of Pidgin, English & French showing the rapper’s creativity in gliding effortlessly and flawlessly from one language to the other.
This latest effort is what i’d like to call an ‘Organised Surprise’.
