There are those who appreciate good music as good music and there are purist who only rate music done the ‘right’ way. Though YCee has managed to bridge the gap separating rap music from popular music in Nigeria, he falls into the category of rappers who were recently criticised for their singing rap flow. Obviously, DJ Spinall is too busy enjoying the good vibes that come when hit songs play at parties to care what critics think as he just released the video for “On A Low” featuring YCee.
Off Dreams, his 3rd studio album, “On A Low” is a piano led Afropop number with party driven mid-tempo drums and synths produced by Killertunes. YCee sings with his rap braggadocio about “Balling Hard Till The AM”. The recently released video typifies the hip-hop motif of pop music in Nigeria: Bad bitches, blinged out jewelry, liquor and an all round flashy lifestyle.
Despite the gloss and glitter of the “On A Low” video that HG2 Films directs, the lyrics suggest the glamour is being subdued here. DJ Spinall features in the video wearing his signature cap but hovers around and lets YCee and the models take center stage.
