A Critical Review Of 2020 Fav Albums: ‘MIL’, ‘TAT’ And ‘ABT’

Published

on

This current generation of music lovers are bolder and wiser. They pay attention to details in songs, not just the beat but they are able to notice when a song is wack or wonderful. We will be looking at three of our fav albums rocking 2020; MIL, TAT and ABT.

Wizkid, Burna Boy & Davido TAT, MIL AND ABT

Wizkid – ‘Made In Lagos’

Wizkid in his album ‘Made In Lagos’ was able to satisfy that curiosity people had on what he had been up to. We now see him in his own element, comfortable. Its like the album ‘Made in Lagos’ is an insight into the journey of the Starboy growing and become a father, better songwriter, and a man embracing his element.

Wizkid Made In Lagos

On songs like ‘Smile‘ we see a father, on ‘Essence’ we see a man seamlessly blending with his art and featuring Tems on that song was definitely the right thing to do, to mention a few. The Starboy got it right on those featured on ‘MIL‘.

Burna Boy – ‘Twice As Tall’

Coming to the African Giant himself Burna Boy, his album ‘Twice as Tall‘ is a confirmation of a reborn and stronger Burna. We can see that he has to come to terms with not winning the Grammy the last time and brought a banger to silence everyone.

Burna Boy

With the album screaming ‘Nigerian and Africanism’ everyone is anticipating a Grammy for this album because it will not just be a win for Burna Boy but Nigeria and Africa herself. In a few words its an album that screams HOME with a banger. He sure deserves the accolades.

Davido – ‘A Better Time’

While we can see the finesse in songwriting, featured artist selection, flow of beat, great delivery, composition in TAT and MIL; ‘A Better time’ is slightly different. The album ‘A Better Time‘ by Davido though a good piece of work, it just seems to be lacking in a couple of the above mentioned and in message. It seems Davido jumped too early or was just not ready to drop an album. His previous album ‘A Good Time’ had a lot of issues and ‘A Better Time’ is following the same part. It still has some of the problem ‘A Good Time’ had.

The funny part is, how can ‘A Good Time’ and ‘A Better Time’ both not meet our expectations even with the ‘good’ and ‘better’ in them, We sure fear for A Best Time, if or when it comes.

We see and feel the growth in Wizkid through ‘MIL’, we see and feel the artistry Burna has brought to the table through TAT, we don’t seem to see or feel anything in particular for ABT, It’s like Davido is still finding himself and he will definitely try the best time this time since a good and better time didn’t work for him.

Numbers of Streams Garnered

MIL, TAT, ABT irrespective of their flaws garnered over 100 million streams within days of their release and some are getting nominations already. These three fantastic musicians are all masters of their own crafts and all bring something unique to the music industry.

“If You Don’t Know Me, You’ll Think I Am Arrogant” – Omotola Jalade (VIDEO)

Published

on

Nollywood actress and philanthropist, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde has indicated that people judge her wrongly thinking she is an extremely arrogant person.

Omotola Ekeinde told Chude in an exclusive interview that although some think that about her, she does not have problems with that because she has to do it to protect herself especially with people she does not know.

According to the mother of four, when she is close to someone, she is unguarded, she talks and plays a lot and revealed that she is very careless around people she loves and insisted that the only time she can guard herself is when she does not know you.

About a month ago, Omotola in an interview with BBC Yoruba advised women not to marry a man who is not financially stable or financially fit to cater to their needs.

“One must apply wisdom or common sense in everything one does. People cannot say that because I married at 18, therefore they can also do it.

The question is, ‘are you ready for marriage’? When I was 18, I was ready. I had been working since I was 15-year-old and I had become a millionaire at the age of 18. That is a fact that a lot of people don’t know. I had my own money.

I was not dependent on any man. Moreover, my father died early, so I was already responsible for my younger siblings. I was like their mother at that time, so I was very mature and financially prepared. One should not marry a man when one is not financially stable. If one does that, one would be going into slavery or better still, prison.

If any of my children, after considering all these factors, say they are ready for marriage, we (parents) would meet the person and if we like them, we would give them our blessings.”

Two men and two teenagers were charged in relation to Pop Smoke’s death last July. LAPD detective Carlos Camacho reportedly testified at a preliminary hearing on Friday and claimed that one of the teens, who is 15, confessed to the murder to another inmate in his jail cell in May 2020.

‘He admitted that he shot the victim three times with a Beretta 9mm,’ detective Camacho reportedly told the court. ‘They got into a fight, and he shot him three times. He said he shot him on the back.’

The boy allegedly ‘admitted that they asked for the jewellery’ and had ‘a confrontation’ with Pop Smoke. Corey Walker, who is on trial for his alleged involvement in the incident, has pleaded not guilty but if convicted, he could face the death penalty the Los Angeles County district attorney said.

Camacho testified that Walker, 20, revealed in a phone conversation that the suspects confronted Pop Smoke while he was ‘in the shower naked’.

The rapper is said to have momentarily complied with orders to hand over the jewellery but then ‘rushed’ the intruders. The gang were able to track him down to the Los Angeles property after spotting the address in an Instagram post.

According to Walker’s account, Pop Smoke was allegedly pistol whipped before the teen shot him. On Thursday, Detective Christian Carrasco testified that a woman who was with Pop Smoke in the bedroom of the rented home, witnessed a group of men storm through curtains from a balcony.

One of the men allegedly held a gun to her head while shouting: ‘Shut the f**k up. Do you want to die?’

Carrasco said on the stand: ‘She heard a struggle coming from the shower area and heard Mr. Jackson [Pop Smoke] screaming. Mr. Jackson ran out of the bathroom and then she heard a loud pop and heard Mr. Jackson fall to the ground.’

In her words, she told the interviewer, “Maybe it’s because I dread pain. But seriously, I don’t like it on me because I’m an insatiable person when it comes to having things like that on my body. Today I may like a bird, and the following day I’ll get tired of that and want to change it.”

“And asides that, in my job, you’ll have to play different roles, so it automatically restricts the number of roles you can play in a movie, so I feel like a professional actress, you shouldn’t, maybe to an extent, have a permanent thing on your body.”

This morning, a thought just crossed my mind that maybe I should do something for my die-hard followers, my fans, if they don’t mind, the clothes I’ve worn not more than once, very soon I’m going to be giving them out to them.
