Running Time –

After a long wait for this project, reggae/dance hall star, Patoranking finally dropped his album. God Over Everthing (GOE) is a truly a combination of soul, afropop, dance hall among others. The Girlie ‘O’ crooner proved to many of his fans that a lot has changed since he witnessed Alubarika. Like Pato said, the album consists of sounds that are truly different from an everyday song. Without further ado, here is the GOE album review.

Patoranking – The beginning was nice with his momma praying for him, it makes you want to feel the flow. Patoranking then takes us to another realm. Rap. The reggae man spitting some bars with a laced ‘Patoranking… Patoranking’  chorus. Different from every other song on the album.

God Over Everything – This is one of my best tracks on the album. Thanking God for his achievements, basically preaching and worshiping God for everything He’s done. The production was slick and Patoranking came through on this.

Cheating Zone – Another song for the reggae fans. Comes with a story line, describing Patoranking the toaster. Unfortunately, he’s toasting a girl in a relationship. The girl stays adamant, insisting no cheating zone despite ’em pPatoranking sweet words. A track with a nice story line you’ll bump.

Money ft Phyno – This instantly makes you forgive Patoranking for the Aboyo track as he features the man of the year on more like his ‘guts to glory’ track. Talking about how tough it was when he was nobody, and how he’s finally made it. Phyno just nailed it with his slick flows to round up an interesting collabo.

Killing Me – This is definitely an album for the ladies as yet again, Patoranking appreciates his lady who is killing him with her love. I liked all ’em baby ooo chorus lines which made it another groovy track.

Kind Love ft Wizkid – A groovy track especially when you have Wizkid coming through to do his thing. The blend between both artistes was there but the track is definitely not one of my favourites.

No Kissing Baby ft Sarkodie – What more can I say? Classic, interesting story line, chart topping, Sarkodie killing, fans’ favourite.

Mama Aboyo ft Olamide – On paper, this looks like a track worth anticipating. But in reality, this was trash. I guess the only reason this song made the tracklisk for #GOE was so that Olamide won’t be angry that Pato failed in keeping to his promise. It wasn’t just about Olamide though, even Patoranking left his worst on this track. The song is simply one of the worst songs I’ve heard in a while. Very lame lyrics.

Stammerer – This song is cool as Patoranking appreciates God for giving him a lovely girlfriend who turns out to be a stammerer. Patoranking isn’t deterred though as he promises to love his girlfriend no matter what the world or anyone thinks. Love indeed.

Love Town – This is another classic track that made me love the album. The production yet again was superb. The lyrics were lovely and the chorus was highly melodious. One I’ve stuck on replay for a while.

Halé Halé – It comes with a nice beat and yet again, Patoranking appreciating his beautiful lady. The song faltered to deceive but I feel featuring an M.I or a Jesse Jags would have just nailed it. I just feel it needed that extra touch of rap brilliance on a craftily produced beat.

Daniella Whine ft Elephant Man, Konshens – A typical reggae song that every DJ would definitely have on their playlist. This should definitely be a club banger with all ’em babes whining and bumping to it. More like reggae-pop. Elephant Man was excellent on the track.

Beautiful – Just like the title, the song is indeed beautiful, singing on a nicely laced soul beat. Patoranking brings his reggae sound in a lovely way, showering love on his lady. A reggae sound on an R’n’B beat, laced with some very soulful tones. Definitely one of my favourites.

Ayinde ft KWAM 1 – This is also one of my favourites in the album. I honestly had my reservations when I heard K1 was featured but it was something I looked forward to, especially with the fact that I have never in my life heard a reggae-fuji fusion. K1 really came through on this one. One for the owambe people.

All in all, I really enjoyed this album and still do enjoy the album. The album is basically about three things, appreciating the ladies, acknowledging God for what he’s achieved and obviously his journey to the top. My initial fear about my anticipation for the album was that, he would do the typical Nigerian secular noisy songs to endear it to the fans. Fortunately for me, he didn’t. Rather, he messed around different genres and merged them with his style to give birth to this album. This has to be one of my favourite albums to come out of Nigeria.

ALBUM REVIEW: Seyi Shay – “Seyi or Shay”

Artiste – Seyi Shay

Album – Seyi or Shay

Guest Appearances – Cynthia Morgan, Phyno, Sound Sultan, Wizkid, Patoranking, Shaydee, Timaya, Femi Kuti, D’banj, Iyanya & Banky W

Producers – Mike Okoigun, Harmony Samuels, Jerome Williams, Otee Beatz, Legendury Beatz, Tee-Y Mix, Pheelz. Dokta Frabz, Johan Hugo, Princeton Beatz, Del B, Phame, Spax, DB Records

Record Label – Stargurl Limited (2015)

Duration – 01:03:48

Ex From Above singer Seyi Shay has dissociative identity disorder as she combats two identities in her drastically over-due debut album “Seyi or Shay”. After countless singles and management changes; “Shay”, a fierce, sassy, eccentric, edgy persona manifests to counter, “Seyi”, the traditional, homely, sultry, sleek, sexy diva exhibited in her debut single “Loving Your Way”. Diamonds are formed under pressure; with Tiwa Savage championing the afro-pop/beats genre and Yemi Alade governing the world and highlife music realm, Seyi did not break, rather the contralto created an alter ego to aid her find sonic balance between her western music influences and afro music to ensure that her “slayage” was supreme.

Did Seyi Shay deliver on her debut album? Yes, it is what the career doctor prescribed! Although Shay painfully dragged tons of male afro-pop giants to bless the set with “street credibility” at various stops; Seyi shines like an “Irawo” vocally, tackling various societal issues facing females and serving a near-perfect blend of ragga, afro-pop and highlife. Amidst the constant struggle between the different characters of “Seyi” or “Shay”, she tackles each number with emotional precision, skill and exceptional singing. Seyi Shay might not have the most expansive vocal range or be a vocal powerhouse yet she one of the most technical vocalists Nigeria has to offer.

For deeper insight on the album, digest our track-to-track analysis of “Seyi or Shay”.

Intro: Having dealt with her alter-ego first hand, Seyi introduces us to the care-free Shay, so that we are not caught off guard by her larger-the-life personality.
The Mic: Over a pop rock inspired instrumentation, Shay talks about Seyi’s struggle and the constant pressure she faced from society to rise to the occasion and succeed; she also gets cocky about the success she has attained as she sings, “I got the mic now, I guess I’m famous…I won’t use a gun, I kill them with my mic now, right now..” on the electronic guitar enriched chorus.
In Public (feat. Cynthia Morgan): Attention demanding synths, claps and kicks explode as Shay and the controversial Cynthia Morgan sing about the battle of not being the “side-chic” and wanting to be seen “In Public” with their lover. A perfect collaboration simply because Cynthia Morgan has the same persona with Shay.
Mary (feat. Phyno): Seyi Shay enlists indigenous Igbo speaking rapper Phyno on Otee Beatz produced hip-hop influenced “Mary”. She sings about the song’s character, a girl with a bad reputation; not the strongest song on the set but it just slides in. It is very safe to say that the said Mary, Shay sings about is Marijuana.
Right Now: The sultry “Right Now” is a mid-tempo reggae/R&B fusion that expresses the singer nostalgia about a former lover. She takes the bull by the balls proceeding to tell the said lover; “Touch Me Now, Right Now, now, now…” on the explosive chorus. She wants to recreate the relationship that happened in the past; that said the sexy number sprinkled slightly with Pidgin English is a lush ear candy.
Healer (feat. Sound Sultan): Seyi plans to heal the world with love accompanied by Sound Sultan. Just like “Right Now”, the ragga inspired “Healer” produced by Harmony Samuels is a sure winner.
Crazy (feat. Wizkid): Shay takes centre stage, as the seventh track kicks in. A thumping high-octane afro-beat duet with Wizkid, on the production angle by Lgendury Beatz.
No Vacancy: The Tee-Y Mix produced “No Vacany”, sees Seyi return to the musical stylings of her debut singles “No Lele”, “Loving Your Way” and “Irawo”. Seyi sings about out-growing a past lover from a hazardous relationship who is seeking to return. This is a captivating afro R&B gem, packed with brilliant vocal layering, background vocals and ad-libs. “No Vacany” is a personal favourite from the LP; it showcases various shades of Seyi’s vulnerabilities and strengths.
Pack and Go (feat. Olamide): Aimed at gaining Shay, a street-hop base and give the LP some street cred. Olamide guest stars on “Pack and Go”. Despite the annoying use of effects on Shay’s vocals, “Pack and Go” talks about domestic abuse in an interesting manner. The returnee vocalist wants out of an abusive relationship, while the street-hop titan wants to make it work; in all the Pheelz produced rap-sung track
Murda (feat. Shaydee & Patoranking): Easy, breezy, and beautiful! Seyi Shay feeds off Patoranking ragga style and Shaydee’s distinct vocals to deliver a clean mid-tempo summer ragga number.
Higher: Seyi flips the coin as she brings her stellar pipes, hunting instrumentation on a powerful message that rises to unexpected heights vocally and musically. “Higher” showcases Seyi’s amazing singing abilities, even more than the previously leaked “Air Brush”. Spiritually themed, “Higher” is arguably “Seyi or Shay” brightest moment.
Everlasting Love: Although it becomes likeable when not fully paid attention, the lukewarm poppy “Everlasting Love” drops the bar.
Killing Me Softly (feat. Timaya): Reworked and slightly different from the version released as a single in 2013; the album version of the Timaya assisted “Killing Me Softly” is very likeable and easy to digest. “Kiling Me Softly” glides into the set without hassle.
Church (feat. Boj): Seyi plans to take her haters and enemies to the church with this infectious, smooth and groovy mid-tempo duet with underrated alternative artiste Boj. Seyi exercises restraint allowing the calm melody and message do most the work although we would have loved to hear Seyi go big on the chorus like she did on “No Vacancy” or “Higher”.
Loud (feat. Femi Kuti): A Seyi Shay and Femi Kuti collaboration sounds fabulous on paper but not so much in reality. “Loud” is average at best as Shay employs the eldest son of afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, to bless her afrobeat inspired track with his Saxophone; Kuti delivered but Shay’s lyrics and delivery missed the bull’s eye.
Tina (feat. D’Banj): Featuring D’banj to tap into his fanbase has it pros and Listeners might end up being torn between D’banj drowning Seyi with his vocals and the beauty of the harmonica enriched highlife instrumentation. On “Tina”, D’banj fails to compliment Seyi’s vocals or arouse any goosebumps.
Love Wan Tin Tin: Seyi gets back on her feet with a racy delivery on “Love Wan Tin Tin”. Where did you go? The 3 minutes R&B and high-life fusion is short and sweet. “Love Wan Tin Tin” is the album filler the doctor prescribed. More Seyi and Tee-Y Mix please?
Jangilova: Ending the musical ordeal is the Del B produced high-life romantic number “Jangilova”. Seyi’s shakes off her western musical styling and sings like a foreigner trying to impress a villager and tries to embody the “highlife diva” on “Jangilova”. Not the most epic album finale to be experienced, yet a Seyi Shay and Del B combo is a meal not to miss.
Right Now (Remix) [feat. Banky W & Iyanya]: Iyanya and Banky W did not push right now to new boundaries; the original slays this remix. Camp Shay should have treated us to bonus tracks from previous released singles richer than this so-so remix; they could have picked from “Ragga Ragga”, “Chairman”, “No Lele”, “Loving Your Way”, “Irawo” or “Air Brush”.
