Music Review: Don Jazzy and Co in ‘Jantamata’

image

This piece is yet another group effort by the Mavin Records crew. As customary with anything Don Jazzy touches, ‘Jantamata’ will most likely become a hit. I have come to theorize that the super producer is yet have a song which after getting necessary promotions isn’t widely accepted. I categorise his creations into big hits, small hits. For instance, Reekado Banks’ ‘Katapult’ is a small hit while Korede Bello’s ‘Godwin’ is viral stuff, a big hit. Similarly, ‘Dorobuchi’ was so big it went viral while ‘Adaobi’ didn’t do that well but remains a hit in a small way.

‘Jantamata’ appears to be in the same league as ‘Adaobi’. Typically, Don Jazzy creates a melodic tune on which each of his artistes drops a verse. Although Dr SID and D’Prince merely follow the rhythm as demanded, D’ija and Korede Bello brought some flair along with their verses. Tiwa Savage and Reekado Banks stay in-between. ‘Jantamata’ is delightful nonsense that should be well accepted but sounds too deliberate. If you are a student or had once been one, the song would remind you of Kegite Club’s traditional medleys and humorous compositions. It’s hard to know for sure but I doubt if ‘Jantamata’ can excel with the fans like ‘Dorobuchi’.
