The first reaction is Wow! The quintet of Gabiro FT Pablo, Achicho, Louie & Needah have outdone themselves this time round with the Ujumbe remix.
It is that jam that grips you from when you press that play button to its conclusion. What’s more? You will be tempted to replay it over and over. Sampling the Video on you tube, I was impressed on the ease with which the artists jelled.
I must say the ladies, and especially Achicho killed it with her hard hitting lyrics. This is the first time I have heard of the name Achicho and I will definitely be looking for more of her music. She reminded me of Missy Elliot-hugely talented but some styling on the dressing would do. Lyrically endowed and her confidence is what stars are made of.
Needah did not disappoint as always, but, ladies? Styling would suffice here. She kept it gangster-the lyrical genius would have shown some meat or wear something more sexy.
Pablo powerful lines were exemplary and it was a good idea that he was the first artists to give us UJUMBE. I have always enjoyed Gabiro style and this was more than I expected. He managed to showcase that he is a truly a versatile artist whose star can only rise.
Where do I start with Louie? He was all over the place and I didn’t know if he would drop any lines. I was impressed though by his ability to drop lines with much ease.
The video was simple. Guess a low budget video but it was impressive in its simplicity. Overall 9/10.
