Ojo is the title, and Slim T hits on social issues plaguing Nigeria amongst other things.
Check on it. Enjoy.
Following the huge success of his Lagos City anthem “Lagosians” and a brilliant 2012 so far, Trip City Entertainment’s very own Slim T is proud to present his very excellent new single for your listening pleasure. Featuring Iye on vocals and produced by Ex-o, “Ojo” is the second single to be released from Slim T’s forthcoming debut E.P titled The Uprising EP due out on Trip City Entertainment in 2013.
Led by a very remarkable strictly live instrumental backdrop featuring acoustic guitar strings, commanding drum patterns and lush horn arrangements, “Ojo” is a call to arms which sees Slim T rapping boldly about the everyday tribulations faced in Nigeria – from the floundering economy to the lack of electricity to our education system – and the ever present need for change in our country.
Iye adds a life-affirming dimension and balance to “Ojo” with her amazingly soothing vocal performance and much needed message of optimism and positivity. Together Slim T and Iye highlight an exciting artistic chemistry on “Ojo” as Slim T’s commanding and hard-hitting rap verses are complemented by Iye’s beautiful vocal chorus calling for togetherness, hope and positivity – all of which are brought together gloriously by Ex-o’s musical milieu.
