Music review: With support from Wizkid and Dr Sid, DJ Big N arrives with ‘Erima’

Mavin boss, Don Jazzy is spreading his tentacles in the Nigerian music scene and with the placement of DJ Big N on the map, we see great things ahead for the label in that direction.


Erima is not the most worded song and we doubt that’s what anyone that hits the download button on this song is looking for anyway especially considering Dr. Sid and Wizkid are the only vocalists on this song. But that’s fine really because producer P.Winxton looks to impress with the supporting instrumentation which successfully fuses a dance-hall tempo complete with kicks with a South African house music synth progression.

Though there are occasional electronic dubstep drops with no base, an inclusion that would have been epic by the way, this beat does just fine on its own. We have to say the clustered electronic kick pattern shares similarities with 2baba’s Coded Things but the result is essentially the intended club jam the song was conjured for.

Vocally, Dr. Sid and Wizkid deliver a performance a few pitches shy of their sonic chemistry on Surulere Remix . Dr. Sid comfortably stays on the chorus while Wizkid opens the song with his infamous patios and a dedicated verse that carries the dancehall feel of the song altogether.

For Wizkid and Dr. Sid, Erima is the girl you want to give your all and If Nigerian club DJ(s) have any ears, they would gift this song to the clubbers till the end of the year to pass the message along.
