The 1da Banton’s Original Vibe Machine – “OVM”, has been through the wait, fans queued, lurked around as he gave them fresh and great songs to feast on. In between, he released a couple of songs in anticipation for this album, “Same Girl” was offered earlier this year, even as he earned multiple song features and recently, “No Wahala”, has been delivered along the same sequel of his nicely structured tunes.
“No wahala”, is the lead track from the album and it was good. Upon the track, He induced rhythm cutting across the edges of dancehall and reggae ode; it was in alignment and quite lovely even with the makosa esque as it became the most addictive song on this album.
1dabanton’s artistry has become more than effective at this point, suggesting that his songwriting and delivery officially stands out without lacking a genuine kind of cohesion that runs through the album.
“Sekkle Down”, opens the album as 1da Banton calls himself the bad man from Port-Harcourt, and it seemed like a football match about to kick off; Seekle Down opened the project graciously, giving a resonating depiction.
Sekkle down flew on a Jamaican patios, and in the real sense, it is the Jamaican way to mean settle down, while the theme ensured hedonism, leaving the vibe that his club-worthy and has high replay value by the side to sustain listeners appeal.
‘Your Body’ was good. It was the next track built on pop kicks and piano melodies cutting underneath, before, “The Benz” designed through Amapiano and mild piano came through, it reacted differently indeed.
The Benz was lyrically dirty and has an explicit nature. The song created an environment for 1da to lay expressions as he calls himself the rainmaker and the waist breaker; well I wonder what kind of visual this record would play out just like Omah Lay’s “Ye Ye” that is yet to have a visual. Perhaps for the cause of it’s explicit nature and lyricism that gives a clear picture of profanity, that seeks to corrupt a person’s mind. Actually, ‘The Benz’, is an 18+ track and I’m sure none of you would take this serious. The back of the Benz isn’t a nice place for good girls to be, the bad ones would stalk and ask for its moments to last longer – it is a place of lying down or bending ones butt behind the Benz for slices of quickie to settle down and slowly pace along, it is fandom.
Along the line, ‘Over’ and ‘No Wahala’ seems to act in the same direction, as ‘Over’ prepared the moments and allowed ‘No Wahala’ become a kind of soon rendezvous of the moment created. The both songs are quite appealing and leaves a lasting and conscious effect that “No Sleeping Tonight” raced after and ended.
‘NST’ is like Tekno’s “Skeletun” being innovated. The song featured Zlatan Ibile to make up the rendezvous mode of the lamba moments in between ‘Over’ and ‘No Wahala’. The song is built in hedonism and kept lurking around the profane corner repeatedly, attached with lamba by the side as Ibile reminded us via his delivery that money is in Lagos, promising that there shall be no sleeping to interrupt the fun tonight. “No sleeping tonight/Shayo dey my cup oh”, the chorus was staked, and Ibile was assisting the effort of the vibe machine.
“911” was reggae driven at a minimal level, and it featured Seyi Shay, while it sounded like a track with the chemistry of Patoranking and Tiwa Savage for ‘Girlie O remix’. ‘Sister Love’ was a great pop staple, same as ‘Don’t Say No’ and ‘Cant Stop’ that allowed Banton profess a love that grows intensely. ‘In My Head’ becomes part of the few exceptional track spots on the album that made Banton truly the vibe machine – whereas, Orbit’s production kept pounding as 1da kept delivering excellence.
‘Flenjo’ becomes like Lil Kesh’s 2018 effort featuring the same Duncan Mighty, that made exhibitions that are extremely beautiful. Flenjo was good, as well exotic. The song was built upon a dub of pop and a watery-like piano progression that amplifies the beauty audaciously. Meanwhile ‘Palava’, introduces the legendary Fela Kuti’s esque on the chorus, given with too many melodies to captivate and make one feel good despite the problems and catastrophe in the middle of their lives.
“Untop Untop” seeks to draw the curtain of the album closed as ‘Way Up’ remix featuring Ghanaian Stonebowy puts an end to it finally. Although from my view, ‘In My Head’ would do a better album closure, despite the form of creativity 1da Banton and his delectable team partook in delivering a remix of his 2017 record off his debut, ‘Banton EP’. Truth be told, leaving from each track on this album designs 1da Banton as the vibe machine; at least he understands how to deliver at that height. Original vibe machine!
