He has been been around since the early 2000s alongside Tolu as ‘Maintain’, alongside Big Bamo, they served us hits and carved their names in the story of our times.
As a solo artiste, despite not being convincing musically, he has recorded some measure of success as his megahit song ‘Yahozee’ took him across borders, he recently released ‘Cinderella’ featuring 2face and the video has helped earn him some shine time yet again.
Earlier this week, new music surfaced from Mr. Olu featuring the King of Sekem Dance, MC Galaxy titled ‘Chop Knuckle’, the cover art for the single is quite uninspiring as we see a picture of American President, Barrack Obama and wife bumping fists.
To the song proper, the groovy beat which has this gyration feel to it is not bad at all, then as each artistes did their verses, it was quite incoherent, bereft of ideas and the lyrics lacked any form of creative imagination, ‘my baby kiss my ear, I go kiss your own’, like seriously, the song was a torture for the 2minute duration that it lasted.
This is one song that is actually enjoyable with the verses on mute.
