Uncle Suru by Jon Ogah feat. Adekunle Gold & Simi is out, and I can’t remember the last time a song grasped me so completely at first listen.
The hypnotic tune and the lyrics to the song are everything. And have I mentioned yet that I think Adekunle Gold is an excellent singer? The man just gets better and better! His tone and control of his range improves with every song he puts out, and his verse here is one of the best things I’ve heard him sing in a while.
Simi’s lines are perfect for her timbre and she carried it well, but Adekunle Gold is the clear winner for me, followed by Jon Ogah himself. I’ve not heard anything else this young man has sung, but I will look out for him going forward.
And the lyrics of the song! It tells about the rigours of trying to “blow” in the music industry, but really, anyone can relate. The words are powerful, and the song sweet like kilode.
“Mo ko’rin ju R. Kelly lo
Irin ise lo n’je mi ni’ya
I wanna become a big star…
…Uncle Suru, I’m recording my CD
They say it’s gonna be a big hit
I’m gonna become a big star”
Don’t take our word for it though; Listen Here to Uncle Suru by Jon Ogah feat. Adekunle Gold & Simi
