NIGERIA Victor AD – Why Ft. Erigga

– Why Ft.

and are just dope together. If in doubt, listen to their latest track titled “Why.

Why” is musical musing on ’s political (and correspondingly economic and social) depreciation. We are supposedly so backward that a blackout was the only evidence the rapper needed to know he was back in .

This is unlike London in the United Kingdom, from where he made his trip. In London the streets are so bright at night that  he would never need to drive his car with the headlamp at full illumination.

There is a depressing lilt in much of the song. Listen to this lines, for example: What if I tell you ‘I was right’/ And I tell you ‘you were wrong?’/ That everything will be alright/ But only inside my song.

But only inside my song! Buy hey, Victo AD still wants you to vote. But do it right: Don’t sell your votes! This has been, in part, the cause of our discombobulation.

Other songs from Victor AD include “Wetin We Gain,” “No Idea” and “Tire You,” featuring Davido.

To ’s credit are songs like “Kettle (Story of Okiemute)” and “Glort (The Genesis),” featuring Nosa.
