From his mainstream debut “Ebute Meta” and the remix of “Mr Capable”, I’d known that Banky W will comfortably fit into Nigeria’s music, regardless of the time he had spent in America.
When I learnt he was releasing another pair of singles this week, I was expecting that at least one of the songs will have the trending ‘Azonto’ touch like P-Square recently did, but fortunately, he dished his own flavor and I am loving it already.
When he released the first set of singles last year, I scored “Setting P” below average because he had done far better than what I heard and for a few talented acts like him, we can only rate you based on your previous works – not in comparison with others. “Lowkey” was the jam but the ratio of dancers in today’s music is higher than the fraction of listeners. But that’s by the way.
“Yes/No”and “Good, Good Loving” sum up to make 4 singles off Banky W’s next and third album…
Talk about when RnB meets Afrobeat – “Good, Good Loving” totally relays the outcome and Spellz’ sax input at the end makes you want to press the repeat button over and over again.
Mr. Wellington did justice with his delivery on Cobhams’ produced “Yes/No”. It’s a mellow tune with elements of highlife and Pop. The clarity of the recording is amazing, even if you’re playing on the worse sound system around, it’ll sound as great as recorded.
Banky W is a brilliant song writer hence, it is almost impossible to fault his lyrical ostentation.
In conclusion, Banky never left in my opinion, so I can’t say he’s back… I’m looking forward to one more video and the eventual release of his next studio album.
