Honestly right now the buzz on 2Face from my perspective is probably more warranted than the buzz on Dbanj. Sure Dbanj got signed to Good (Kanye’s label) but in my opinion 2Face was my first pick in terms of an artist that was to break into the international market. Either way I think when I listen to Only Me which is in 2Face’s upcoming album appropriately titled “The Unstoppable” I cant help but think this is why Naija music is running Africa right now.
A huge part of me thinks the producers have evolved and hence the music performance and writing has ultimately changed/matured. Overall listen to this cats vocal delivery and listen to the flow tell me you don’t think this dude needs to be on a Tower Records shelf or something.. Shit I forgot most record stores closed shop lol..
ps. The message in this song is deep, we are all one regardless of where we come from – when I went to school back in Kenya I recall conversations around Cushites, Nilotes and Bantus. When you think of Africa in those terms, what separates us is really what we eat (Fish, Cows or Grass)… the newness in our ethnic lines and color lines in my opinion was created during colonialism and it gets worse the more developed our countries get… LETS UNITE – AFRICA is one big COUNTRY
