Few weeks back, I wrote an article on “10 Portharcourt Artiste who left for lagos and their career died” it was met with utmost disgust as I watched it spark a debate on the true state of these entertainers and their once glistening career.
Most of the disgruntled celebrities threatened fire and all the sordid content their wild imaginations could phantom. While the beefs and counter accusations had taken centre stage, someone stood out. M-trill.
He released an official statement as to that effect, ending his press release with a statement that loosely translates in this form: Make una give my new song dis same hype when E drop.” Almost a week and a nickle short of two weeks, he dropped “Aboh”.
M-Trill unleashed a joint that would set every record straight. Aboh an urhobo language for Clap has all the signature trademarks of the M-Trill we fell in love with. The beat, a mid-tempo baseline backed with a chorus so easy to follow after the first entry. The producer ticked the clock in us as the groovy beat sent M-thrill off the leash while he dished lines like “I hope you can feel me now, this has taken too long” proved me right but wrong at the same time as he proved that he indeed still remains the greatest rapper of Niger-Delta extract.
The video? Shot by a former colleague turned video director, the prolific director extraordinaire Adasa Cookey. The video, crisp. The traditional etibo, wrapper, hat and white handkerchiefs that is an assemblage of all that signified his roots made the video a piece to watch over again. The video would go a long way town-crying the return of the King, the one whom other rappers grovelled at his feet spewing eulogies while they feed fat from his wealth of metaphors and word-play.
I would also suggest his team creates enough download link for the video and song as this would spur the rate at which the song would go viral. Thank you M-Trill, we all raise our hands up high for the King.
