The track dubbed Riba, which is a Sheng word that means story, has been getting a lot of airplay since it was released a few hours ago and to be honest, it deserves all the attention that it’s getting because it’s really dope.
Ladies and gentlemen, this song is really infectious and perhaps that explains why I’ve listened to it more the twenty times since it came out. I’m not even kidding.
The musicians who were featured on Riba were well thought-out. It is such a dope combination of talents and if you ask me, this is the best Gengetone jam of 2020. Yup, I said it.
Odi Wa Murang’a totally aced that hook. To be honest, I do not even understand what he is saying but it just sounds pleasant to the ears.
Nelly The Goon also had a sick verse. However, I would prefer that he avoids being raunchy since that is too old now seeing as we are in 2020.
The Only Delo really came through on Riba. He always has a unique way of expressing himself in songs and to add to that, he is simply interesting to listen to.
Breeder LW did not disappoint either. He is always dope. I was also impressed by the Nigerian artist who goes by the name Nifty Boi. He really spiced up Riba with his English flow because he’s also a bad ass rapper.
The beat on this track is impeccable. Listening to it makes you feel like hitting your local club and having a good time and that is not a bad thing or is it?
The video for this jam is also really dope. I totally love the quality. The styling and scene transitioning were also good and I thing whoever directed it deserves a pat on the back.
Watch Riba below and tell us what you think.
