TOOXCLUSIVE REVIEW: Timaya - “Bang Bang” + Mayorkun – “Yàwá” Mp3 Download

This guy is one very versatile artiste. And he has shown his fine stuff being able to switch effortlessly between ragga, reggae, dance hall, afro pop, contemporary high life and even some (afro) hip-hop with R&B fusion all through his career years.

It’s almost impossible now to appropriately peg him as an artiste in one field (even though we know deep down in our hearts that he’s the presido of alla dem dance hall man
tngs… Lol!)
It’s exciting to hear Timaya trip back to his dance hall roots
especially considering the fact that he’s featured more in the
division of afro sounds for some time now. On ‘Bang Bang’,
he unleashes that patois frenzy some of us have longed to
hear a little too long a while now.

The intriguing thing about
this new sound would be Kitwana’s production. It was so
unusual, like we’ve never heard it before. It was so unnatural,
concepts might be able to explain it but minds won’t be able
to fathom it. It doesn’t even sound like it’s from here either,
the musical template could have only come from abroad. And
it was so flaming hot, it started to bang and burn right from
the first electro-synthesized riffs on the song’s intro. The
lyrical framework of ‘Bang Bang’ follows a very simple
design with distinct repetitive patterns.

They’re easy to
assimilate and sing along to despite the deft upward
progression structure. The blend between the spoken words
and melodious chords evokes more than just some swift
badass rhythmic movement. There’s the thought of an
I ntensely-satisfying, deep-reaching ‘soul’ that was sewn up in
it as well. Suffice to say Timaya has yet again struck gold
with another song that is sure to cross boarders since the time
of Sanko, ‘cos indeed, he slayed big time on this one.

Rating – 4/5

I think we all kinda saw this one coming. It’s probably why it took the DMW management a little longer than we perhaps expected for them to put out a new sound from Mayorkun since Eleko “trended” and pulled all that views they claimed it got in a little less than a week.

They must have hit a couple brick walls while they tried over guessing the outcomes from
his next single. To be very frank, it’s a beautiful love song. The very okay kind that just needed plenty more work done. The hype and anticipation for this second single really made it fall flat on arrival. The production is not even as tight or shall I say it was an imperfect mix that affected the sounds ‘cos it seemed too light in the listener’s ear.

Moreso, the production didn’t sound current at all… as in, in trend. It plays like something
pulled outta the Wizkid freshman era. Unlike Eleko! You will have to forgive the fact that I keep making reference to Eleko, and that is because for a debut track, he pretty much set an appreciable standard for expectations on his other musical works. Sadly, ‘Yàwá’ didn’t cut it at all.
Rating – 2.8/5
