The Modern And Vintage Connect with Niniola and Femi Kuti’s ‘Fantasy’

Posted on

Afrobeat was the base upon which Fela Kuti built his platform as Nigeria’s most prominent artist. While the genre has basically taken a backstep these days, his sons Femi and Seun have kept the flag flying. In light of this, it makes sense that Niniola would seek to tap from the source for her latest effort.

Niniola flitters between different worlds, ancient and modern on the Afro-House and jazz hybrid which spotlights Femi Kuti’s fantastic and well-aged Saxophone skills. In a glazed state, she rolls out a slew of her signature seductive lyrics over Femi’s inimitable sound grandeur which when mixed with Kel-P’s contemporary bass instrumentals, gives the wispy single a welcome edge with enough bass to get Niniola’s listeners moving.
