Roll and Coasters: On the Way

R&Cs: On the Way

Once you cross the half century mark, it becomes easier to pull a Danny Glover and disparage the newer crop of artists you didn’t grow up listening to. With Hip-Hop and R&B, it’s even easier to shout eulogies to the genres. But good artists will always get your props no matter the era. And they’re sure to win over the most of reluctant of us when they go retro. That was the case with Angel a few weeks back; that’s the case with Khalid and contemporaries 6LACK and Ty Dolla $ign with “OTW” — or On The Way. In as far as Nigeria pop is concerned, you can posit that the future is in bright hands with the likes of Korede Bello, Simi and Singah.

I wrote as kid. (I'd die if you'd ever get your hands on those poems.) And I wrote as a teen. (We thought our raps would spearhead revolution.) I write these days to share my joys and perspectives. I am as subjective as they come. I found a bunch of blessed souls that are just as expressive. And Africa is all the better for it. (I think I never really changed.)
