GMK already started 2020 on a memorable note when he reunited Prettyboy D-O & Sugabana for his catchy single “Strong & Solid” . Unfortunately, unlike GMK, the world didn’t follow suit, and for his second single “Lagos (Everyday)”, GMK switches the hard-hitting bass for a more mellow, guitar-led beat, which makes for the perfect backdrop for Tomi Thomas’ rich and spiritual vocals.
Tomi Thomas starts the track off singing ‘All you need is love’, before he launches into a love letter about Lagos being filled with hustlers and go-getters determined to find their next big break. ‘Lagos na barracks, Lagos na home’ he sings, determined to make the most out of this crazy city which seems to drain the dreams and expectations of her inhabitants.
On this track, he preaches the message of love and perseverance, as a way to remind us all of the city’s resilience, and how we manage to make it work for us even when it’s tough.
As we all get settled into the new normal and observe the mandatory lockdown, we’re all missing it outside, even though we hate it so much when it’s available to us. Many artists are using this time to keep their art and music alive by penning reflective numbers which will resonate with anyone who is listening and going through the same things.
Listen to “Lagos (Everyday)” below.
