Nigerian and African music has seen it’s own mix of music that tries rather hard not just to appeal to the entire continent but to the world at large. And within the last few years such tracks have indeed come forth. Those of us with the knowledge of how good music draws us all in can attest to the fact that any good song requires four major things. Amazing production, good and catchy lyrics, a beat and melody that is unforgettable and a voice that leaves a mark on the heart of its listener.
One act that brings all these to the table is (The Legendary) Gray Jonz; producer for some of the biggest African music heavyweights in the last decade including Djinee, M.I, Ice Prince, Dipp and the versatile indie Rapper/Singer and Performer Eva as well as a gifted Rapper and singer.
He brought us tracks like Money(ft Base One) and Mi O Ran yan (ft. label mate Hayo Niel), produced Hayo Niels’s If I fall, produced Eva’s High, Co produced Eva’s Never say Goodbye with Ese Peters and produced the euphemistic jewel we know as Lights Out. (Also by Eva)
His new single Fall is quite different from most of the music he has brought us so far. This is largely because it is something very close to his heart. The lyrics tell his story of an attractive baller, hit hard by Cupid’s arrow. He makes amazing use of his vocal prowess in this song and brings in hints of afro- dance rhythms in the production making this the perfect song for a dreamy day in, or a sensual night ou on the tiles. In my opinion, ladies this here is a dream. And all you (m)heterosexual guys best go tune up and sing this to all those special ladies in your lives. Gats. Why? Any woman who hears that she has “stolen (your)cartridge” will gladly consider showing you her “mumu button.”
