For Nigerian music reality tv lovers, the name Chike wouldn’t sound so strange. But for many others, seeing the name Chike pop up all over your Twitter TL could feel nothing short of choking. Everyone kept going about how the young singer’s new album was so good, with some even crowning it album of the year already.
But one thing is sure, Chike created magic. The singer who first introduced us to his talents on shows like Project Fame and The Voice pulled a rabbit out of a beach hat with his debut and introductory project, “Boo of the Booless.”
A well timed release, the project dropped on Friday, February 14, to soundtrack the global celebration of love and in that regard, the album didn’t disappoint at all. Across the 14-track LP, Chike’s gift as a brilliant song writer was on full display. His poetic tribute to the several gods of love of love was also delivered with electric vocal performances that testifies to the singer’s artistic depth. In popular street lingo, Chike finish work untop this project.
Standing on the shoulders of giants, he also brings along Ric Hassani, Zoro and M.I Abaga on this alluring journey of love. And if there’s anything we are ever sure of; M.I can never go wrong on a love record.
