Song title: Reggae Blues
Artiste: Harrysong ft. Olamide, Kaycee, Orezi, Iyanya
House: 5 Star Music.
This song and video are amazing. Pity I only just found it. Reggae Blues is a conurbation; high-life, gyration, afro-pop and even a touch of hip hop. This is ultimately the direction contemporary Nigerian music will go, must go; dig deep into the past to please the present.
Reggae Blues for many who do not know is a riff on the old saying back when we were young in Bendel state – no take your reggae spoil my blues!
This song takes hilarity notches higher – “enjoy yourself baby boo/cos even your boo, get a boo.” Ouch!
I am not even sure whether Orezi and Olamide, Iyanya and Kaycee being young cats even understand the provenance of their lilting chorus.
And did you hear Kaycee’s opening line – “Ladies call me talk and do/Cos I no dey for cock and bull.”
Boys are on point!
And that video, hmmm. Where did they dig up Klint the Drunk? Very well put together.
Harrysongs delivers an amazing tune; fun, danceable and a tribute to the past.
Nice, nice , nice.
5 stars for 5 Star Music.
