Afropop reaches feverishly ensnaring heights when it takes a romantic tune. And for Timz’s new single, “Number 1”, he casts passionate lines, in hopes of capturing a lover’s affection and listeners’ romantic sentiments. Ozedikus produces the synth layered mid-tempo beat for Timz’s emotional confessional. While his vocals, lit in wedding night afterglow, are alluring, it’s the clever interpolation of Afropop classics such as Olamide’s “Omo to Shan”, Wizkid’s “Naughty Ride” that makes “Number 1” such a good Afropop song; Instantly familiar, lightweight and memorable.
