It is a popular industry talk that Reekado Banks is just one class behind the industry’s first class acts. Ever since the release of Dorobucci, the young man has been a star and he has since been knocking on the door to the upper echelons of the industry – putting out hit records, impressing on a number of collaborations, recording a well received debut album and winning a fair amount of awards for his effort.
The same charm which Duncan Mighty’s signature Eastern high life sound lit up ‘Fake Love’, is the same charm used in this song, except for the introduction of new musical elements by the producer, Baby Fresh which brought more bounce and pace to the sound, giving it a wider pop covering in a way that it does not sound strange to Reekado Banks’ audience.
Duncan Mighty’s presence on the song seems to be a calculated move to replicate the success of Fake Love, especially because he now owns one of the hot properties in the pop circle – a signature sound that offers some sort of better alternative to the ageing Shaku Shaku trend.
Now the new release ‘Bio Bio‘ is not in anyway different – it is still same old Reekado Banks we know, probably at his usual best, but surely not less of his standard self, and he crucified Babyfresh’s unique beat with vocal swag and musical vibes from the East. Wene Mighty’s signature vocal flava complemented flawlessly with the stylish sound. The veteran musician has a way of giving meaning to the jollof-ness of any song he’s featured in, and the best part is he doesn’t let you miss it. Bio Bio was definitely created to light up the dance floor and it is safe to say that it will achieve this purpose each and every other time.
