MUSIC REVIEW: Di’ja’s “Wan Chop” & Bella’s “Radio”


Artiste: Di’ja 

Song: Wan Chop 

Mavin Records princess Di’ja is slowly making her comeback, the new song “Wan Chop” is her second single this year.

Di’ja throws an open invitation in the song to her ‘lover’ to ‘come chop’. She begins by calling out “where you baby eh”, “come here baby eh”. Then she notices that that he must be famish hence she said “you’re looking like you wan chop o”.

It’s obvious the mother of one is steadily finding her strong point which is somewhere close the alternate sound. Wan Chop is made with culinary metaphors and very luring euphemisms. One might just start longing for some real food or some psychological satisfaction after listening.

This is an attempt to weave the Love theme into something everyone relates with food and accompanying culinary vocabulary.

Di’ja serves “Wan Chop” on a thumping beat put together by Don Jazzy. The lyrics are quite self explanatory and nothing corny about it. Alas it doesn’t stick to memory. Nevertheless it radio friendly and has the potential to grow on you after successive listening.

Rating 3/5


Artiste: Bella 

Song: Radio 

A few months of after joining thriving record label Tinny Entertainment, the first lady Bella drops her debut single “Radio“. Aptly, the singer recruits the services of her label mate and buzzing rapper YCEE.

Bella comes with loads of confidence some fresh girl power on this joint. The singer’s confidence oozes on the track as she acknowledges that the is repping for the girls and her hometown Jos.

“Radio” is a manifesto by Bella of what you should expect from her with her new found platform. “I took the microphone and I stole the show“, “I dey do anyhow I dey carry go” she declares.

It’s worth noting that Bella informs us where to find her henceforth, on the radio as sung on the chorus. That means she promises to rule the airwaves, something we would hold her to in future.

YCEE comes on at the 02:05 mark of the song. He comes with a laid back approach which comes off as regrettably below par. The Jagaban failed to lift the vibe a notch higher.

The production as done by Synx is compact will inspire a few nods of the head. Bella’s “Radio” is made fit for radio play. It’s a great attempt for a “new comer”.

Rating 3/5
