Award-winning Nigerian singer Oluwatosin Ajibade, better known as Mr Eazi has dished out his first single for 2020 and it is getting a lot of love from his fans.
The song dubbed Kpalanga, which means Go Crazy, is dedicated to servicemen and women around the world. It was actually inspired by love that Mr Eazi’ father, who was a military man, and his mother had for each other.
Basically, this song is about the sacrifices that servicemen and women have to make big sacrifices such as being away from their partners for long periods and waiting anxiously to see them.
Although some people will say it’s too mellow in comparison with Mr Eazi’s previous releases, this jam is really dope and to be honest, I was not expecting anything less from him.
Kpalanga is beautiful musical offering and a great start to the year and the way I see it, it without a slight doubt his best project to this day.
I love the fact that it’s a deviation from the Afrobeat sound that we’ve gotten used to in the last few years and maybe that’s why I can’t get enough of it.
To add to that, Mr Eazi’s vocals are really dope. As you are listening to Kpalanga, you can easily tell that the message is coming from his heart i.e. there is a lot of sincerity in his voice.
The beat and instrumentation are also impeccable. At first, I didn’t think this jam was danceable but then I saw some fire dance challenges. The video is crisp and to add to that, the scene transitioning is flawless.
Watch Kpalanga below and tell us what you think.
