The jam titled Jeje is so exceptional that it clocked 1 million views in the first 14 hours. I don’t know what you make of this but it’s simply amazing.

Jeje is a love ballad, it is about a certain girl who is driving him crazy and he’s ready to go to any length to make her his. Perhaps, the only difference is that he has used Afrobeats on this jam unlike his previous releases.

The fact that he ditched Bongo Flava beats this time around is the reason why many people, including myself,  can’t get enough of this jam because it’s something that we didn’t foresee.

Jeje is well arranged. It just flows. It’s those songs that you just to listen to over and without getting bored of it. His lyricism is also on point and I’m sure many people will appreciate the simplicity of the song.

One of the things that I noticed about this track is that he threw in some Nigerian Pidgin and if you ask me, I know you probably won’t, but it was really necessary because he has used an Afrobeats track.

Of course, his vocals on this jam are great and I know many ladies will appreciate this fact because it almost sounds like he is speaking to each of them.

The beat by Kel P Vibes was impeccable. Other than the fact that it is catchy, I know you will agree with me that it is also danceable. However, the beat has been a source of controversy since it sounds like Wizkid’s Joro.

I totally love the video concept for Jeje. Director Kenny has once again proven that he has a powerful mind. There is a bit of simplicity to it but it’s generally dope. Kudos to Diamond Platnumz.

Basically, this track is about is about two people who are deeply in love and they are not shy to express how they feel about each other.

La Vie has been topping continental charts since it was released a few days ago and it has so far garnered more than 400,000 views on YouTube. However, this doesn’t really come as a surprise seeing how well arranged it is.

This jam is versed in French, Swahili and English and as you are all aware, you can never go wrong with the first two languages since when it comes to matters of the heart. Isn’t that true though?

I have listened to La Vie a couple of times since it came out and every time it as if I am listening to it for the very first time. Yup, it’s that good. Believe you me, it’s really infectious.

Don’t even get me started on Tanasha and Mbosso’s voices. The way these two sing, you’d easily assume that they are in love with each other because it’s so surreal.

Notably, the instrumentation and beat on La Vie are really dope but I wasn’t expecting anything less seeing as it was produced by the one and only S2Kizzy and mastered by Ayo Lizer.

Director Kenny from Zoom Extra also did a good job on the visuals for this song. From the set up to the model to the choice of colours and scene transitioning, everything was impeccable.
