Garey Godson Reflects On His Brief Romance In ‘Cairo’

Garey Godson seems to be touring the biggest African cities and has absolutely no problem taking us along. A few months ago, he detailed his romance in Lagos on ‘Private Trips‘ and now, the German-based act further takes us up north in his latest number, ‘Cairo‘. Teaming up with DONMD who assisted with an emotive Travis-type hook, Garey Godson comes through with a modern R&B vibe, punctuated with underlying Spanish guitar riffs.

On his visit to the historically and culturally rich city, Garey comes across a love interest and tries to detail his brief romance with the damsel. He is immediately blown away by her charm and confidence and tries to open up his heart to her. Apparently, she just wants to have a good time and not down for any commitments, as she slowly fades out of his reach. Garey is therefore left with a cherished souvenir from the beautiful city: his memories of her.

Spanning just over two minutes, ‘Cairo‘ is a short but sweet affair that’d most likely have you fumbling for the repeat button immediately it ends. Garey comes through with a polished flow and airtight delivery that projects the soulful realness in his lyrics.

With monthly releases since ‘Chosen One‘ in May, Garey has proven that he has an impeccable work ethic. The frequency of his releases makes it look like there might be a new project on the horizon. And we are absolutely here for it.

Enjoy ‘Cairo‘ above and let us know what you think.

And now, Garey’s new single titled ‘Tha Juice‘ even lends more credence to that claim. This comes just a couple of weeks after he took us on a journey around the city of Lagos in the love number, ‘Private Trips‘.

On this soothing love number, a besotted Muyiwa appeals to his love interest to yield to his advances and go with him. As smooth as ever, the sweet-voiced singer details exactly how she makes him feel and admits his desperation to be with her.

As expected, Bankyondbeatz came through on the production end of the record, lacing the instrumental with strutting guitar riffs and soft but scintillating talking drum rhythms in the background.

Fasten your seatbelt! Burgeoning German-based act, Garey Godson is taking us on a journey around the city of Lagos in his latest single titled ‘Private Trips‘. This is a self-produced record, engineered by his friend and longtime collaborator, HKMK.

This record was premiered on The PGM Show with Douglas Jekan, Shedy Kay, Mercy Ajisafe and Fresh L.

According to Ilaye, ‘Metaphors‘ is about a girl who is finding it quite difficult to express her affection to someone she admires. She then attempts to get her thoughts and feelings across to him using metaphors.
