Seven years and another seven mixtapes after the release of his debut project, Ghanaian Hip-hop heavyweight, Ko-Jo Cue, has released his debut album, For My Brothers, after much anticipation and in the project’s third spot, Lady Donli and Show Dem Camp prove their worth on a jazzy Afro-pop hybrid titled Smiling.
On a backdrop of smooth saxophones giving life to prominent snares and bass drums, Lady Donli opens the track with a stellar hook in her signature smooth vocals that give way to Ko-Jo’s first introspective verse which in turn paves the way for the SDC duo to dish out penetrable bars.
The quartet is a group suited for each other evidenced in the track’s free flow of narratives, natural synergy and the raw energy their deliveries emit. Not that we expected less from the trio of Lady Donli, Tec and Ghost of Show Dem Camp but their contributions on Smiling are added proof of their reverenced positions in the Nigerian music industry.
