Africa’s foremost rapper M.I Abaga is back with a new jam, this time he has Oxlade with him and they’re here to serenade us on “All My Life”.
Witness the power of love as M.I digs deep to show us his soft side which we have seen a lot of. Whether it was on One Naira with Waje, or on Mine with Wizkid. If M.I has proved anything on this, it is that Arsenal fans know how to make Amazing Love songs! Check with Banky W as well, you’ll come up with the same conclusion.
Oxlade comes on the Chopstix produced song with his signature “Boy Ox” and proceeds to introduce M.I as “incredible, mister incredible” then he teases s off with a line and a refrain:
“Girl I want you to know say me I got you for life
(Girl I want you to know say me I got you for life)”
Usually, you would think he was done and it’s M.I’s turn. At least in a world of 2 minute songs, the artiste/owner of the song should come on already. But in M’s, Oxlade still owns the stage. So with all intent to maintain the standards of his infectious voice, Oxlade runs the hook:
If only you could read it how he sang it, but mere reading can’t do justice to the talent of this young legend. Oxlade delivers a through pass to M.I who comes in with a verse that might be shocking for the famed Africa Rapper Number 1 but not for a man in love. After all the most cheesy lines are motivated by love. (“Are you an angel…” Alright back to the verse. Roll in M.I with the verse:
End Verse 1.
M.I that wrote the most disrespectful diss track in Nigerian music history (Don’t come for me abeg)
That man is capable of love?!
As expected, Oxlade is back with the hook and we’re on again.
M.I throws in another verse right off the hook and it’s better than the first. The preacher’s son pulls a ‘Saving the best for last’ and I love it!
It’s not as hard as expected but you can at this point see the soul of a man in love.
At this point, you realize that love isn’t a hard guy thing. It is soft and cheesy and butterflies. This wasn’t meant to be hard. It was made to show that love could be found in the simplest things, and if your demand was a hardcore song… Love is blind. Blind to your demands, your thoughts and whatever.
If you’re looking for a love song to play in the background, while you’re on a date with madam and telling dry jokes that still make her smile. This is for you!
If you’re hardening your heart towards love and trying to avoid this song… Remember that Love conquers all.
Oxlade take us away with that hook one more time while our readers, leave comments!
