In the past couple of years, 😯 Sounds has stamped its foot on the map with a collective of artists and producers consisting of Higo, DOZ, Le Mav, SosaLomo, Tobay and HVRRY who have quietly delivered some of the best music from Nigeria’s most scrutinized group of artists. Continuing to push the envelope, Higo and HVRRY team up for two new singles, Company featuring WANI and Buju, and Issues featuring WANI and Minz.
Company which is centered on a bouncy guitar riff blends the right elements of house and Afropop on the road to creating a beat that should have everyone dancing. This sets WANI and Buju up perfectly and they deliver as expected, with Buju taking lead on the hook and WANI delivering a stellar verse as they try to woo a love interest without hiding that she is dispensable, if she’s not with it.
Issues, which pairs WANI with Minz as we saw on Fast Life is another upbeat record marked by the understanding that there are some underlying barriers to being in a relationship despite the desire to be in one. Alternatively, this song is built on drums and WANI delivers the opening verse before handing it over to Minz who announces his love and desire for a woman before coming to terms with shortcomings and seemingly coming to terms with the reality.
