Pon Pon Music : How Davido, Tekno, Runtown Are Spearheading A New Trend by Synord(m): 4:36pm On Aug 26, 2017
When Davido Adeleke announced he was returning
back to the basics and going back to his African
style of music after being forced by Sony to do
western style of music which resulted in the coldly
received “Son of Mercy” EP, many were expectant
of the results of his new strategy.

That back tobasics strategy birthed the monster hit “IF” andbrought Davido back into the certified hit status.The song which was laced on an instrumental with snares and percussion was very melodious with its distinct kick sounds of Pon Pon and went on to
become a mega hit in the country with one of the
song lines ‘30 billion for the akant o’


Davido capitalizing on the success of IF, went
ahead to record another song similar and laced on
the Pon Pon styled instrumental and he titled it
“FALL”; FALL is doing incredibly well also. Many
noticed this trend and called out the star but he
addressed them in Olamide’s Summer Body even
shouting Pon Pon at the beginning of the track..



For Davido, Pon Pon represents the African sound
which has been termed local and despite this, he is
sticking to the local sound claiming it is paying him
more. He went ahead to diss Wizkid for his so
called western sounds claiming all other sounds
apart from the local Pon Pon sound is not relevant
and Wizkid responded that artistes either stay local
or try and move to the international scene..



Recently, Wizkid released a MasterKraft produced
track titled ‘Medicine’, a typical example of the Pon
Pon styled music taking over the industry. He
followed up with Odoo, again produced by
MasterKraft, another musical piece with the Pon Pon
instrumentation. Wizkid went as far as ensuring a
remix with Phyno and Flavour was made.
Apparently, the battle between Wizkid and Davido is
not ending anytime soon as fans have began
comparing who is killing the Pon Pon African sound
more.



It seems every body is now jumping on the Pon
Pon wave. From Tekno who claimed to be the Pon
Pon king with songs like Yawa, Rara to Mayourkun
with the smash hit Mama and the Mega smash hit
“Mad over you” by Runtown, we might just be in for
a new genre of music that will rule the Nigerian
music industry for the rest of the year and probably
next year as every artiste looks forward to dropping
a number one single and the Pon Pon styled singles
seems to be a sure way to achieve this feat.



Whoever fans stick with and whoever the Creator of
this new appealing sound is, one thing is for sure,
other artists are jumping on the Pon Pon wave and
African music is ready to take over the world. The
person pushing it matters not, the desired goal is
worldwide acceptance of our music, artistes and
culture and we are getting there.

Provided the songs always put Nigeria on the world map with respect to a distinctive sound being created, it's all good.

Lots of trashy Nigerian songs that emphasise beats over lyrics. Its all about producing something which can ensure girls of easy virtues have something to shake their arses to in the video.
Nigerian music is only fit for clubs, its not something you listen to when you need some music to feed your soul
