DJ Coublon features Chidinma on his romantic new single, “Nwoke”

A modest romantic Afropop song

Chidinma turns her emotions into dancefloor seduction on “Nwoke”, DJ Coublon’s new single. On it, Chidinma feels like greeting an old friend we haven’t seen in months; the latest on her personal catalogue has been since March. Here, DJ Coublon, Klem and Chidinma show a good sense of teamwork.

Chidinma’s assertive vocals on “Nwoke”, as she sings the praise of a love interest, are instantly alluring, but the song’s appeal lies in the catchy melody of the beat that DJ Coublon produces with traditional drum riffs, a mid-tempo piano sample and horns. Though “Nwoke” listens like a modest romantic song with local instruments and the fusion of English and Igbo in Chidinma’s lyrics, the clever word play by the song’s writer, Klem, hides the song’s more vulgar sentiments; “You Dey Carry Me Like Say You Be Lalala”.
