Released three days ago, this song has great potential. The song is about a man mesmerized by a woman’s wiles and seductiveness.

A fast paced dance song about a wild encounter between the opposite sex with equal determination to have a good time.

Song title translates to “it’s over/it’s done” and starts off with a heavy beat that commands attention. With the rapper’s lyrics about her being a conqueror of all including poverty and backstabbing, to become her new self, it keeps you enthralled until the end. With her control of her Mende language in rapping, which is her brand, the song is a banger and more. With its featuring of a strong singer named Deeno Jay, it balances off the mood for those who aren't necessarily hip hop fans but would find this sound edgy.

7. Daddy Rhymes album- https://youtu.be/bGNGc1WqHeU
Daddy rhymes has released an album after a long hiatus and it is worth listening to. It is interesting how he remained true to his known sound without staying outdated. The whole album keeps you feeling good in a relaxed way to vibe or dance at will. All of the songs are good for a warm up or lull time at any event but only “come hold me” can be termed as banger level good. The instrumentals for the album is commendable and the beats on the whole album though very similar on most songs, is slightly different to not the album seem as one music.
8. Slezzy’s “my story” music video- https://youtu.be/qwWuinh2TsI
Another sensitization song about no violence and the interrelations of society. He reminds of the problems of violence and its long lasting impact. He advises against allowing money to motivate one’s action to incite harm from themselves or others. He reminds us that love and unity can carry citizens through negative actions. With its reggae beats, it gets you to listen to the lyrics and vibe, allowing one to pay close attention to the message. Definitely worth listening to.
