Basketmouth’s Yabasi is encompassing but original and standalone enough to not sacrifice its quality for diversity. Songs on the album like the Oxlade and Show Dem Camp assisted Myself speak to the individuality of Basketmouth’s kinfolk while others like Play, Chike, and Zoro’s Life touch on culture. Other narratives like romance are not missing and Waje and Ladipoe do a great job of sealing in Cupid’s deal. Among others that have been previously released, the duo’s Ride Or Die gets treated to a video this week.
A solid reflection of their charming and easy lyricism, the video stars Waje, Ladipoe, and another couple that plays the role of the lovers the duo projects. Following the plot of a grass to grace love story, the video meets expectations delivering drama, corniness, and a hazy ambiance in the right amounts. Waje and Ladipoe’s laidback but heartfelt performance toys with the already easy vibes, making it an almost perfect love story.
