Lagbaja is a symbolic name in Nigerian culture that represents a mysterious presence that sometimes wields power. Following several months away from the music scene, Peruzzi, on his comeback titled Lagbaja, employs the popular name to tell a tale of a distinct alter ego he possesses that solves problems and sets things straight.
Accompanied by a video directed by Naya, Peruzzi who was the subject of controversy some months ago uses the Vstix produced single as a retort to those who made a case against him. He combines traditional drums that serve as the foundation for a largely Afropop driven soundscape with his gruff vocals and edgy delivery style to create an intoxicating experience more rewarding than his previously released superficial singles.
Since he began to gain ground by way of exotic features, Peruzzi’s artistry has been missing something culture writers have been unable to pinpoint, the edge and honesty in Lagbaja clouded by its basal nature reveal what Peruzzi has been missing all this time: soul.
