Ekzay Luzani is a fast rising indigenous rapper who drops his rhymes with a mix of both English and vernacular (Igbo), and decides to murder the peace of haters, societal dregs and detractors in this hot and well co-ordinated rap verses he titles – NSOGBU, and carries along fellow lyricist and punch rhyme specialist – BoyAce , to add more spice dipped in dopeness to the whole song.
NSOGBU is an Igbo word which translates thus as Trouble in English, and Ekzay Luzani truly embodied the theme of the song, owing to the hardcore composition filled with profound lyrics and verbal clap backs it boasts of.
This track that takes you through the labyrinth of troubled times, with fond vocals Ekzay believes the antidote to taking care of these myriad of problems like haters, especially as it relates to his ascendancy in the rap game- is the use of the proper adjectives in relation to the times.
Then some kudos goes the way of BoyAce who jumped on the track with so much gusto, delivering his verses like Nostradamus, employing deep metaphors that sends reverberations allover this rendition.
The track was ably produced, a rather stunning composure I’d say, and you can notice the rich blend of sounds prepped with the right pitch and delivered superbly over a tempo quite sensuous and inviting especially for a rap song.
Ekzay Luzani is one lyricists who understands the perfect usage of phrasal expressions with meanings; hear him:
“…anyi ga enye ha nsogbu… to all my haters..we balling everyday we no de look Uche face…”
This song could swing both as a party banger as well as a song for all occasions, with a chorus that brings you on, compelling you to nod your head in acceptance, I urge y’all fans of contemporary Afro-pop and naija music buffs to go download, love, share and disturb- even as you creatively sing along with the duo of Ezkay and BoyAce.
