Call it Lamba, call it sticking to what sales, give it any name you want to, the repetition of vibe in Naira Marley’s ‘Lord of Lamba (LOL) EP’ could not and won’t be pardoned.
The moves recordings act teams up with Young John and Killertunes to replicate Rexxie’s commercial sounds on ‘Mafo’ and ‘YanYanYan’. The 6-track expended play features DMW youngster Mayorkun who only failed in his quest to adjust Naira Marley’s incomplete project.
‘Tingasa’, ‘Tesumole’, ‘Mafo’ featuring Young John, ‘Isheyen’, and ‘Oja’ all sound alike. What’s the aim of a body of work if the production and performance is going to be same.
The diversity in creativity should be the singular reason behind all EPs, album, LPs, etc. In fact, many acts gets excited when dropping a body of work because its the only reason most ‘money driven’ record labels allows an artist to try out new sounds in quest for new audiences.
Naira Marley failed to creatively approach a new audience with his ‘Lord of Lamba EP’. I only have to wait to hear the chorus to know the song that’s actually playing as all the beats sounds alike. This is poor and distasteful.
Take it From Me, Naira Marley’s ‘Lord of Lamba (LOL)’ EP is an Incomplete Work of Art
