Well, you might have heard of the social media storm featuring, ‘Omo Baba Olowo’ himself, Davido, shooting a Nigerian Police Force assigned rifle from the balcony of his mansion about 2 weeks ago. In his own defence, he clearly stated that the picture he posted on Twitter was for a music video which was in the works.
Well, we can now authoritatively confirm that the said video was for a newly released effort by Tilla in which the ‘Dami Duro’ popstar featured titled ‘Oni Reason’. The release which was produced by ace producer, Kidominant and video shot by Aquila Records’ notable director, Frizzle, is one which will definitely get you off your chairs to put on your dancing shoes.
This release which is already fast becoming an online fan’s favourite further showcases Tilla as a new force to reckon with in the Nigerian music industry. With his fast rise to fame as Africa’s ringing voice and unique looks which mirrors that of will.i.am of the famed Black Eyes Peas musical group in the United States (say you heard it here first), Tilla proves with ‘Oni Reason’ the power of collaborating with an A-lister on the music scene.
The song which has gotten its fair share of controversy with an early leak and which has been premiered simultaneously across several countries in Africa, including Nigeria, Congo, Uganda, Cameroon, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, South Africa, Ivory Coast and Ghana is one which holds the potential of not only solidifying Davido’s touch of class to collaborations he’s jumped on, but it also promotes Tilla as an artiste to watch out for.
However, with much of the sleek quality production and beats, the message of ‘Oni Reason’ itself simply reeks of content with not much value or meaning. Different strokes for different folks, guys! A party banger these days doesn’t need to carry much content value and those who need something to dance to might just not be disappointed.
