    D’Banj’s Issa Banger… Is It Really A Banger?

    Even Olamide, the acclaimed Street King won’t feature two (street) upcoming artists for leverage, in a budding market where he probably has no chance. (This explains why sometimes he calls on Wizkid and Davido) BUT, that’s where it gets cunning. D’banj can really get funny at his approach to stuffs. From the Game Of Thrones-inspired artwork to “It’s Not A Lie” tryin’ to remind people of his “Eja Nla-ship,” to enlisting former Mo’ hits colleague, Wandecoal and someone not even close to the equation, Harrys. D’banj is full of creative ideas, funny ones, pace-setting ideas, and that’s what kept him on top of the game (read: world) for years, before he lost touch with the pop market, and almost went extinct.
    With the level Eja Nla (this means “Big Fish,” anyway) is at, right now, he might not even be planning to cash in on just a street vibe made for the streets, clubs, and DJ’s. BUT, he might actually want hype, by “catching in on” the shaku-shaku rave. Warefa!
    Whichever way it turns out to be, it should be a MF win-win. He gets the hype he’s wanting, makes some money (you’re tryna dull a businessman?) and move the shaku-shaku movement forward – because it’s our original street innovation.
    Already, Slimcase’s biggest accolade is being on that jam (banger, in this context) and when you say Slimcase to someome who’s not deeply rooted in the streets, before you remember “Usher Ray, ki lo wa se network e…,” you remember D’banj’s Issa Banger. Why? It’s a BangaLee something. Moreover, it’s paving the way for other pop stars – who major in Afrobeats – to jump on the shaku shaku bug, without feeling “too big.” They can even feature Mr Real? That way, it works out as a win-win unless, of course, it’s actually less than a banger…
    “Issa Banger” is uptempo, fitting into an Afro-fusion of Electronic and House, tapping the shaku shaku vibe to the (in Falz’s voice) fullest mazmum. Instrumentation is on point. Slimcase starts, with the intro – he seems to be so good at intro’s. First shouting out his alter ego “Saint Sami Ganjah,” he continues some (not so rare) chants, beffore adding a bridge, which lead to the hook.
    Though, the lyrics seems too complex to understand, the main point is : The street is vibing with us, and we are the rave of the moment, then whatever we do issa banger. “BangaLee, Issa Banger// Mr Real Legbegbe, Issa Banger// Slimcase Oshozondi, Issa Banger…”
    D’banj was in high-spirits, doin the brags about himself he’s been used to doing in recent times. He tries out the “oshaprapra” slang, too! It’s corny, but it all makes sense.
    Mr Real’s verse issa bang, something that doesn’t come as a suprise to “shaku shaku” nigg’s. “Shaku shaku is on the island// Okoro, you don pop rozay, you don get money, go sell your papa land,” the storyline is intact, and absolutely “vibe-able”.
    BangaLee’s an entertainer The Entertainer (pun intended, of course). And, his attempt at the street vibe ain’t bad at all. Indeed, welcome to the mainland!
    Electrifying performances ‘pon da electronic instrumentations, and the whole feeling is all electric.
    Worthy of note, this might be the first of it’s kind, but subsequently might not be the best. You never can tell, Wizkid might buzz Slimcase for a collab, anytime. Who knows ?
    “Issa Banger” is a second warning to y’all who slept on the “King Don Come” album. King don come!
