Vector, Fave & 3 others had the best releases this week

The best new singles released this Friday include:
  1. Insomnia (Vector feat. Cracker Mallo)

Vector’s inability to sleep is rooted in the tragedies of the innumerable building collapses in Lagos, the trauma of the Lekki shootings, the predation of “men of God” turned “gods of men” etc.

Insomnia sees the magical record producer stamp his authority on the traumatic hook of the song to give Vector one of his best Hip Hop performances in recent times.

On this day in 2021, Vector released Family Meeting to commemorate the victims of End Sars killings. The singer follows that up with the release of Insomnia featuring Cracker Mallo, Fireboy’s favorite producer. Fashola’s laughable discovery is one of the heart wrenching sequel of End Sars criticized by Vector.

  1. Scatta Scatta (Fave)

Fave takes his listeners back in time with some oldies sound borrowing from the raving Amapiano sounds of the moment, plastered on some Dancehall rhythm situationed on the talking drum and saxophone.

Scatta Scatta features Fave expressing her reaction to the manly affection she is subjected to. With some Nigerian grammar, especially Eedris’ “jagajaga”, the story told on Scatta Scatta is relatable.

  1. Jeun To Da (Reekado Banks)

Logicality and humor are the result of Reekado Banks’ choice of words on the opening line of JTD — he infers that “it is a small world, but your papa no fit trek am”.

JTD highlights suffering, placates the weary, motivates the hardworking and balances the message with the logic that taking care of oneself by eating good is necessary to keep moving.

  1. Trouble – A Colors Show (Teni)

Teni’s contribution to the Colors Show is Trouble. Monotonous on both verses, Trouble is a piece of love quickened by the tempo of the racing palpitations of the Dancehall instrumentals.

  1. Oh Baby (Dapo Tuburna)

Oh Baby’s a sing-along chorus is advantageous; it’s one thing that holds the listeners down on the song. Here, Dapo Tuburna can only appreciate that which is said to be in the eye of the beholder with money and his exploration of the Amapiano.
