9ja2geez Album Review: Olamide – Uy Scuti
Olamide’s greatness and legacy is secured. Arguably the greatest nigerian rapper of all time, and CEO of one of the biggest record labels in nigerian music history, olamide has nothing to prove.
His discography is the stuff of dreams, and his numbers equally impressive, “badoo truly na Baba”. On UY SCUTI he continues his evolution and artistic maturity. He is no more the voice of the streets, he couldnt afford to contest that terrain with the likes of zlatan and naira marley. He was already a legend, he had too much to lose. He had to move on from that phase. Carpe diem was Afro-pop, but on UY SCUTI, badoo flows on RnB, Reggae and dancehall and freely adores the beautifullness and wonderfullness of a Woman, on “So much more” he is telling her she is so much more, he doesnt even want to see her shed tears. It feel like he let his guard down, This tune is soothing, relaxing, olamide was in his carribean bag on this record, this song seems tailored to the carribean market.
Jaywillz shines on jailer which is an instant favourite, badoo want to be her sailor, she is ceasing his breath. This beat is sick, the tempo just fits. This might be the single. What is that lamba badoo? Shakabula what?. This record is a madness.
“Rock” the lead single for the album is an infectious and addictive tune. The melodies are just sick. Badoo once again is adulating this wonderful lady, she seems to have possesed him, he can recognize her even in the dark, she doesnt even need to introduce herself. Once again the beat is a madness. This is one of the best songs of 2021, it is up there. Amazing stuff.
On Julie, he is at it again, i dont think badoo has been this vulnerable, he even knows it, he tells her he didnt think he can love somebody’s daughter like this, she has full control over him, he even tells her secrets he has been keeping. Amazing thing. Layydoe steals the show on “Rough up” her vocals are powerful, this also seems carribean. Layydoe is in her bag on this one. Amazing stuff.
Fave is on two songs on this tape, she delivers but doesnt steal the show. She is an amazing artistes though. She is really Amazing.
Somebody see badoo and phyno link up again, these two partners in crime are at it again, i though shilalo was one of the underated songs on carpe diem, this record is good too, phyno follows olamide’s pace, all they need is somebody to Love, and love properly. Nah phyno aced his verse.
This is sweet music, this album might end up as another Mordern classic, this album would age really well. Olamide didnt miss on this one, this album is Cohesive, badoo stuck to the story and followed it to the latter. This album shares sonic similarities to wizkid’s made in lagos. Both albums would end up as mordern classics. UY SCUTI seems tailored to a foreign audience. He raps more in english than yoruba through the tape. The carribean influences are also very visible. Olamide could produce one of the songs of the summer.
Badoo shines and excels on UY SCUTI. He legacy is secured and another classic added to his discography.
Ride on badoo.
