Where he began off his vocation as a maker, and after that a rapper, he has created different abilities, which sits at the heart of the music making process. “The Playmaker” as a collection is basically an affirmation of his present status.
Any Nigerian rap fan will comprehend that the diversion has been skewed with a hot push by rap acts to create pop singles. Phyno as of now leads this charge, after the accomplishment of “Associate” and ‘Fada’.
“You’re not notwithstanding upsetting my interface, with my associate,” he sang happily on 2015’s ‘Interface’. The tune had associated him to another level of masterfulness; one which inclines intensely towards retro Eastern Highlife, rethought for radio and the playlists of his fans. That tune turned into an enormous hit.
Presently, in the wake of including vocals with Olamide super-hit ‘fada’ furthermore to suggestive hits ‘E beyond any doubt for me’ (‘Olisa doo’) and ‘pino’, the swashbuckling Igbo rapper has named his second collection “The Playmaker”. Other vertical pop stars who have worked every one of their vocations to make the most of Phyno’s present status can’t approach at this moment.
“The Playmaker” is really a two-section theoretical collection about biographies, ladies, desires, reflection and sounds. Both parts are interlaced with each other, framing a sonically finish assortment of work.
The first is an immediate perfection of Phyno’s fixation on Highlife which has demonstrated fiscally fulfilling and inspiring for his profession. The second is a light plunge into his Hip-bounce roots, where despite everything he keeps up echoes of his introduction collection – 2013’s “No Guts No Glory”. Phyno has formed as an artiste into a heading that is a long way from that extraordinary venture. Where he invested energy in his presentation collection rapping his heart out, on this one, he expertly drifts through dominatingly as a total artiste, and the impacts are astounding.
He’s seemingly the present playmaker of the Nigerian popular music space, with a broad story to tell, triumphs to celebrate, and companions to participate on the joy. He positively focuses on the subject.
In the wake of proclaiming himself the best on ‘Best rapper’, he finds better approaches to ‘Connection up’ with Burna Boy and M.I on another strapping track which serves as standard braggadocio material finish with mid-section pumping, shots at haters, scowling at uproarious bloggers, and a stroke of the financial balance, which by one means or another approves the greater part of that hostility. You can’t have hostility and shoot shots with a feeble bank adjust.
Feelings are a solid piece of this work. You could feel the maternal hooligan at your heartstrings as Onyeka Onwenu exquisitely conveys ‘Ochie Dike (Mama)’. Thoughtfulness and thanksgiving power through on “Slip-ups” and ‘SFSG (So far so great)’, while cherish sneaks its way in on ‘Pino’. ‘No be my style’, a melody about the hustle highlights the splendidly limit line ‘Imma do me cos, so mu na’e feelu torment mu’ (I will do me in light of the fact that no one but me can feel my agony)’.
Some center Hip-jump idealists may not warm up to Phyno’s adaptability on the mic, yet his creation and composing abilities are hard to blame. Helped by a product of makers including Masterkraft, Major Bangz, and Tspize, he keeps the music finish and reliable all through the collection, giving the audience an all encompassing background of the new Phyno as a man, an artiste and an industry pioneer.
Where he began off his profession as a maker, and after that a rapper, he has created different abilities, which sits at the heart of the music making process. This has thus shot him from the East, to the focal point of the Nigerian music space, from where he pulls the strings crosswise over pop and Hip-jump, rakes in the fan love, and serves as a solid leading figure for Eastern music. “The Playmaker” as a collection is just an affirmation of his present status.
