Bubble Bizu serves up music exactly how I like it. It’s got that Naija ghetto street grit sound I love and keeps me hitting the replay button. Good job Mr. James Amuta on the directing (Vee’s styling could have been stronger but she brought the heat with the verses she spit). For the most part when I receive anything from Amuta whether his personal writings or the works of the clients he represents, I know it will be on point. I appreciate that, a lot.
Have a great day folks. Very busy week for me. Trying to do that balancing act right about now.
*Now singing* Lako, Lako ni mo (de) wa . . .hmmmm. . . faji repete, lata wa. If you get money make you show o! Omo ma lo down grade o!
“Bubble Bizu brings back the grit in ghetto music with a strong fusion of highlife, hip-hop, and raga, Lako begins to sound like the unofficial anthem of every hood in the city of organized chaos. Enlisting the support of the Warri-born lyricist, J.Flow, and the delicious-looking vocalist, Vee on the track each verse is packed with a different kind of intoxicating melody. The video captures the life of a Nigerian hustler in a real ghetto – laced with gritty visuals and symbolic images directed by the poet cum filmmaker, James Amuta, the video engages you from the first frame up until when the curtain literally falls over the camera.
Bubble Bizu has been around the scene for a while. Last year (as Babatunde), he captured the imagination of many entertainment enthusiasts on the internet with the release of what was dubbed Nigerias first no-budget video for his single Shenimadupe. This time, he teams up again with the maverick poet cum filmmaker to take us on a visual journey of what life looks like for a talented hustler emerging from the unsympathetic ghettoes of Las Giddi.
Lako in street parlance may be synonymous with strength, bravery, respect, and survival.
