Nigerian singer, Skales has released his long-anticipated studio body of work titled, ‘Sweet Distractions‘ (album).
Housing fourteen Afro tunes, the project features African music heavyweights, Davido, Stonebwoy, Zlatan, and so on.
The songs on Skales’s Sweet Distractions fit into three broad categories: revived rapper credentials; animated relationship travails; and the contemporary zest of South Africa’s amapiano.
Better known as a crooner, Skales beginnings as a rapper dictate proceedings on “As Always”, “Katapot” and on album opener “Hope, Freedom and Love”, on which he recounts his mother’s succumbing to a stroke, as well as career slights, drug use, relationship strife and money worries: “It still hurts, I hate the world so much man/Thank God I don’t own no nuke”.

Over woozy synths, emphatic kick drums and roving pianos, Skales finds good synergy “Pants on Fire” with fellow Nigerian artist Blaqbonez who, like himself, started out as a rapper, but later embraced the melodious advantage of his singing voice.
“Heart in a casket/I’m done with that love shit” sings Blaqbonez with steely resolve to repair a deep hurt. On more than one occasion, Skales proves to be a dab hand at amapiano.
