An exploration of the music landscape particularly that of the younger generation of artists dominating many playlists today will do nothing but bolster arguments that our culture may be increasingly ceasing to exist as Western influences take over. Very few if any are attempting to create what can pass as traditional music and so music from the likes of Jinmi Abduls is particularly relevant in trying to preserve culture. His debut EP, Jinmi of Lagos was an early show of the path the singer is trying to fashion. Linda Highlife, one of its records sees Abduls explore the idea of love being blinding and controlling.
While the video isn’t of bad quality, it’s Abduls’ least cohesive yet as it features no dominant story line and ultimately ends up being a combination of shots of the young highlife ambassador singing and having a good time in the presence of friends like Remy Baggins and Straffiti.
