it's so pitiful and pathetic that every 3 to 4 years everybody will gather and be fighting over the same patch of land. The same place that has been designated One of the dirtiest cities in the world and recently the worst traffic in the world. we are so backwards and damned that everyone wants Lagos. They want ownership not because they love it so much, but because when they look back it's still better than their decrepit hooverville. if only naija was better.

|Music/Radio / Re: First Thought On Wizkid's New Album More Love Less Ego. by Aidejay(m): 12:22am On Nov 20, 2022
This began my MLLE obsession.
I'm not a critic or analyst. But in my opinion as a mere music listener. An average joe. A wizkid fan too. I love this album!
It's perfect. It's wizkid.
I don't want to go fan girling over it. But I must say.
I like Bad to me and money and love but those two songs are the worst songs wizkid could have released before the album.
They didn't do the album any justice at all.
You see the remaining songs. WONDERFUL.
I think the one with Skepta and naira Marley is my least favorite. I don't like it. But give it a year and ask we again.
Now Bad to Me and money and love aside.
The first song that struck me was the last song on the album. IMAGINE
It's called FRAMES (WHO'S GONNA KNOW)
this song brought me to tears. It's one of WizKid's best songs ever. His voice, the lyrics, the flow, how he sang it. He performed this song in his Apple Live Show and that was epic. This one no be gragra music. It entered! I find myself going around singing "who's gonna know at the end of the dayyy". For me even if this was the only good song on the album I was ready to stream and play it.
The second song that stood out was Balance.
I don't have much to say it is a banger but isn't too 7 on this project.
Next was Slip & Slide featuring Skillibeng & Shenseea - Best collabo on this album.
Then 2 sugar fr Ayra Star. This one is fire. I had to share the video of him performing it at Apple Music Live on my other social media platforms cause it is such a bop! The messaging was amazing. Bringing that bad energy stay far away vibe back again. Which perfectly suits my mood at this point in my life.
Then Pressure. That pipipi part is even what entered my head.
Then Special ft Don Tolliver. This song has no drums or snares just piano and guitar and I love it. Another fire collabo. But only god can deliver wizkid from women and their bodies.
Then the rest of the album entered!
Plenty loving (I don't love it like that tho)
People are calling wizkid "AGROWBEATS" OR "AGROBEATS" meaning his songs will grow on you. You might not like it first off but honestly e go later enter.
You can jam this album from beginning to end, no skips. Maybe 1 if you're like me.
But is is an amazing album experience. Different vibes, different conversations, different presentation, WizKid's vocals on fire. Sound on point.
It's very sexual though. Maybe that's what will turn most people off. Not me!
My advice, don't listen to this album if you want war songs and dem mama dem papa music. Or if you want pseudo-activist music. There are artists and albums everywhere for that. No carry am come this side. You'll be disappointed!
But if you want some solid vibes, music that will make you dance, smile, jukpa and be singing along loudly not minding. Something you'll play at night, chilling on the beach, trying to work, not shouts and shaking songs that will be giving head ache. Listen to this album.
Wizkid ate. It's my favorite Album of 2022.
|Music/Radio / Re: First Thought On Wizkid's New Album More Love Less Ego. by Aidejay(m): 12:21am On Nov 20, 2022
The tracklist didn't have the features I expected wiz to pile following the success of Made in Lagos.
Just Ayra Star
Skillibeng and Shenseea
Usual collaborator Skepta,
Naira marley ?
I wasn't hyped at all.
Then I heard the album for the first time after reading the poliarizing reviewers on twitter. Which I must add is the worst place to sample music opinions.
First listen was bland I wasn't in love.
So it wasn't a love at first sight (listen)
One song stood out though. I'll discuss that later. I began to believe the negative reviews and was demoralized to appreciate this album.
About 2 days later I watched a YouTube reaction to the album from an American and someone totally new to the wizkid wave and he shocked me. This was someone who isn't Nigerian, hardly understood what wizkid was singing, someone alien to the wizkid and other artists comparison, infact he heard the album dropped from people in the comment session of another YouTube reaction video he made. Meaning he didn't follow wizkid. But his appreciation and commendation of the album was high.
After watching that video about 3 songs stood out for me and didn't leave my head.
I had to find and listen to them again.
|Music/Radio / First Thought On Wizkid's New Album More Love Less Ego. by Aidejay(m): 12:21am On Nov 20, 2022
Firstly let me say I wasn't anticipating this album. I didn't think wizkid could pull the wonders he did on Made In Lagos on this new album. After listening to Bad To Me and Money And Love the two lead singles I was worried about what direction he was taking his sound.
The anticipation for the album definitely died after those two songs. It was hard to hype this album.
Then the album tracklist dropped days to the project release. Infact the entire album rollout has been disappointing.
It didn't meet the usual wizkid album rollout bang.
But then I remember this was how Made in Lagos started out, Smile and No stress didn't shake anywhere but years later the album has become a classic.

My sympathy for that lady.
She doesn't deserve this, hopefully one day her father grows up and accepts the fact that his daughter is lesbian and will be for the rest of her life.

|Family / Re: My Parents Destroyed My Life In Guise Of Love, I'm Now Depressed Daily by Aidejay(m): 8:48am On Sep 14, 2022
Ablemed, I'm also the only male child with elder sisters. Were the same age infact, And our stories aren't different, The only divergence is that my parents didn't pamper me. They made sure I did chores, sent me on errands, put me in charge of things, they policed where I went to and who I went with, dictated all my schools forced me to attend church, hammered rules into my head and basically regimented me.
So basically were the same but with different parenting styles.
You won't believe that I still had self esteem issues, I couldn't talk to women for most parts, I became introverted, hardly went out, lacked Confidence and communication skills, shy and quiet. Had body image issues, speech issues too, only comfortable around people I know, Just like you!
But if you see me today! You'd be shocked. Your parents shielded you bro, But you're on a right path. This is how you begin to come out of your shell. This is how you begin to move forward. Stop blaming them, you've the next 6 years of your life to break their grooming and become the person you want to be. But having 2 parents looking out for you bro is a blessing, accept it embrace it while shedding their influence small small. Nothing happens overnight. You can't undo everything in a week it takes time but it's one step.
Despite the fact that my parents Didn't "pamper" me I still didn't turn out better.
You need to retrain yourself, get a skill, learn something. Instead of moving out now use that money to learn something that would take you out of the house daily, Interact with people, even if it is 1 person everyday. Start leaving your comfort zone, go and start conversations with strangers. Smile!
They don't install confidence like an app. You build it bit by bit. Apologize to your parents because you still need that support structure if you really want to stand strong.
You're privileged and it's a good thing. Start using it to benefit yourself. If at age 30 you're still blaming mummy & daddy then it means you're an idiot.
The things your friends are doing that you aren't you'll end up doing them if you start working on yourself now, they had the opportunity to have a different upbringing that doesn't mean they're better than you. It's people like you (us) that end up doing that most because we didn't start earlier. Learn from them but don't copy them.
In the past 2 years my confidence has increased, I'm not so introverted anymore, I go out everyday to work and communicate with people, I went on a date last week, I'm meeting strangers and we're talking, and vibing, I can go out and come in.
Masturbating & porn has a negative way of influencing how you look at women and men, it also gives you that false perception on how you should build relationships with people. So bro you need to stop that. That one too is in your hands and is totally up to you. I did myself #selftraining #selfimprovement.
Your parents gave you the best parenting, now it's time to shed the parts you don't like.
Take it from someone who understands this thing.
