Ajebutter 22 is now set to become the major player on Nigeria’s competitive music circuit with the release of his sophomore album. Titled “What Happens In Lagos,” Ajebutter did plan to make this project a documentation of his thoughts and realities.
After launching to reckoning in the industry as far back as 2012 with the smash singles “Serenre” and “Omo Pastor,” Ajebutter 22 whose real name is Akitoye Balogun has been a mainstay with several hit songs to match.
In recent time, you might remember the buzzing single, “Bad Gang,” with which he enjoyed the limelight, the airwaves and the charts for several weeks at the time of its release.
However, Ajebutter 22 had thoroughly paid his dues even before that scorching piece. His debut album, “Anytime Soon” enjoyed positive punditry ratings at the time of its commission as well. Plus, he also recently dropped “Wayward,” which made the cut on the album as well as remain our early favourite.
Now, it looks likes the “What Happens In Lagos” album will be the continuation of that streak. The 13-track project of musical art comes with an additional bonus track and it is one effort that comes with a lot of revelations.
This is because Ajebutter 22 makes the body of work a compilation of the urban and contemporary culture of a modern day Lagos from the perspective of an act who understands the ins and outs of the Centre of Excellence.
However, Ajebutter 22 also adds an artistic grit to its offering in a way that makes the album easily enjoyable with its wavy, bouncy and groovy overall, which holds an addictive influence.
The “What Happens In Lagos” album enjoys the features of several playmakers and heavyweights in the industry including M.I Abaga, Falz, Dremo, Maleek Berry, Mystro, and Odunsi.
With its impressive production credits, there’s little reason all of the records off the album holds outputs of quality that does connect with the musical mind and soul; while making way for the good and jolly times as well.
In the end, the “What Happens In Lagos” album as well as your replay button might be all the playlists you’d need for the season and even beyond.
