Yung L: The Underrated Nigerian Sean Paul?

The Nigerian music industry is deep, and is an epic ride to the land of full dominance and multiple recognition. The ride for safe arrival to that land takes both time, supremacy of the art and consistence. But in Nigeria music industry, even paramount art shaped perfection have been stripped naked and despised. The music industry politics have been plighting several acts we should reckon legendary for the form of art they render us, both now and then. Nonetheless, few greats are crowned richly and have been recognized for the noble cause which there crafts have paced and presented. Ranging from the likes of legendary 2face Idibia, Burnaboy, Legendury beats, Beats by Sarz, Wizkid, Olamide, Phyno, Tiwa Savage, Flavour, Davido, Chidinma, D Banj, Dj Spinall, Jimmy Jatt, Mr. Eazi, Timaya, Patoranking, Chopstix, Simi, Kel P, Adekunle Gold, Killertunes, Rexxie, and more. This aforementioned acts including others in the Nigerian music scene have parceled an apt value of omnipresent dominance with their crafts; while many withhold varieties of recognitions for the bravery their art have paced beyond the walls of Nigerian music industry.

Yung L, the popular Nigerian Afro-dancehall singer and performer render tunes hot. He curates an art with elements next-door to the popular Jamaican Dancehall singer, Sean Paul. The 32-year old Plateau born singer, named Christoper Omenye, has been consistently delivering the effect of distinct art and his recent project – “Juice & Zimm” holds proof you don’t want to miss. He is simply underrated. No two way about it, and you know this. But still, his shine glows bright like stunning star and his vibe’s really an irreplaceable type.

His “Island Tin”, the 4th track from the “Juice and Zimm” 7-track project released early this year, was a critical pursuit that leads a sweet slow Dancehall tempo filled with perfection and ridding off sadness as it softly lights up the place. “No time fi wasting, mummy make you show me something….girl, you are me island tin, island tin.” Yung L choruses passionate and lively.

“Light It Up” The last track from the project was a pragmatic example of Sean Paul’s magic which sings, “nearer to me girl, I wanna get nearer to you girl. Me sing say, nearer to me girl, come a little closer to me girl, with me; fire burn! fire burn! Light it up fi me” the Dancehall kicks keep vibrating as the tune keeps attaining magical heights and bloom. “Eve Bounce”, another magic which came through and was boldly executed in the project as Yung L finished off perfectly. He delivered a remix featuring the Starboy, Wizkid. And “Eve Bounce” remix became thicker and more weighty of addiction and liveliness. Wizkid introduced his B side as a rude boy in the game, simply a critical representation of Dancehall ting as he continues to light the place up to ginger perfectly. Other tracks also did perfect on the project accordingly.

Now, look at Yung L’s art and tell me what this fine vocal and consistent Nigerian act is lagging behind even lately? While his potential making great sounds are even realistic. He sounds even legendary and no one truly cares about what he has in store? What on earth does Yung L has to proof his originality and make you blend with his lively art, mind you it taste much like legendary Dancehall cuisine, Sean Paul who loves to “light it up” and burn off the roof top. Yung L does no different case for his art speak the same essence and rails on same course. What else do you want to take away the plight and despair from Yung L’s Art because this act seems legendary and unique to be despised. What else, he’s a consistent one and his deliveries are like monumental Dancehall jewels which would clothe you vain body. What else do you require. His vibes for “Juice and Zimm” are enough to be notable as a Dancehall master like Legendary Sean Paul, because he burns and light it up perfectly.
