Oliver Trip is one set that has continued horning his act overtime; you could feel him strut his stuff in tracks like the classic version of IF,where he features Sturna Boy. But this time he decides to take things a bit profound by doing the cover for AD’s – “Wetin we Gain?” .
Wetin we Gain is a Pidgin English phrase which simply means what will you gain? and the song’s all about street hustle and making the money after all the struggles. The song takes time to list out the pains of not acquiring the necessary material things that could be the crown jewel of all life’s hustles.
Oliver Trip did well and almost replicated a more finer version of the song. Though more of a lyricist than a vocalist, he kinda held it down, singing as well as dropping his lyrical phrases quite intelligently too while he rendered the song, and trust me AD will be happy when he listens to this cover.
The track was produced by KChizzy, then mixed and mastered by IKM , who did a beautiful job with the lovely blend of Afro pop sounds, just like it was in the original version with a bit of deviation that still speaks of creativity.
I urge y’all fans of conscious rap to go feel this track by downloading and of course sharing, even while you join Oliver Trip in singing the hook;
….omo if we no get money Wetin u gain…. wetin u gain o!….
