The Cross River State-born music star dive between Afrobeats and Rnb in her quest to deliver the sonic package to the fans.
On this EP, Biwom embodies a heartbroken lady. Depressed and is angry when conversations about Love ensued. Separating a true lover or a player is even difficult for her, she lives in the folly no matter the assurance she gets from a potential boyfriend.
Biwom vocal began “Company”, it got thin out by a saxophone but it was monetary as she goes on with her tale. Not needing anyone’s company, it a sad talk, the mid-tempo track goes on with the saxophonist dwindling the vocals.
The artist tried her hand at singing with Yoruba language on ” Try”, it was bland but commendable, it was a one-off thing, she switches to English/pidgin thereafter. Try was a build-up on Company. It should have come first if the A&R on this EP was serious about having a sequential tracklisting.
Rebel Kid had an element of Amapiano, it an eponymous track about a sullied upbringing, the overprotective attitude of parents. According to the act, she never enjoyed studying law, her family was unsupportive of her music career. This formed the bedrock of this song. She was the definition of a rebel king who does what she likes.
Singah reminds me of the 2010 Chris Brown, I had to check the track to be sure Breezy was not the one going the falsetto way on Bae. It reassuring but Biwom cares less, she already made up her mind on the rigmarole she assumed her supposed lover was in.
Jeje could have been named Antidote, it would have still made sense. Skales was on hand to deliver the well-needed verse. It’s my favourite track on the EP.
Liberty was a melancholy retrospective view of the past. The reasons for the epiphany got unraveled by the artist.
Biwom sounds like an artist who has a lot to offer, this is just a tip while the fans salivate for more, I hope she goes back to the drawing board, works on the tracklisting, and the mixing and mastering of subsequent releases.
Lyrically, she is exceptional, she paid attention to details on this EP, some of the tracks were personal and this makes it relatable.
