Naira Marley Is As Lewd As Ever On ‘Idi Oremi (Opotoyi, Pt. 2)’

Posted on

From the middle of 2019 to its end, Naira Marley made a comeback after delivering a handful of hits years prior that fast became the subject of a myriad of theories and also, the source of a dance culture that transcended classes in Nigerian and the diaspora. His relevance has dwindled but he seeks to make another comeback hinged on Opotoyi, one of his re-breakout hits from 2019 on Idi Oremi (Opotoyi, Pt. 2).

As expected Idi Oremi is an interpolation into the earlier released Opotoyi except it lacks the bounce the latter possessed despite instrumentals provided by Rexxie, Naira Marley’s longtime and frequent collaborator. Idi Oremi does carry Marlian related constants including lewd lyricism, the singer’s celebrated nonchalant articulation, and street slangs in sufficient quantity to give it its class transcendent quality.

The single is right up there with the rest of those that have failed to earn Naira Marley a grand reentrance to the industry.
