Timaya is no doubt one of the icons of the Nigerian music industry, he has paid his dues, overpaid sef with some tracks and albums as evidence. He was the dude who always have a problem with one enemy on his jam, when he was done with that narrative, he switched to talking about Ukwu (Ass).
Chulo Vibes is Timaya’s penultimate project release, it run on restrictive topics, enjoyment, and love, every track has a smithereens of that narrative, from the opener to the last. The banging instrumental on “Balance” might make you miss the message in the song fly past you, he was retroactive and at the same time inviting the listener for a dance time, pick one. Balance message was clear but the follow-up song “The Mood” was more clearer in terms of the delivery and the Afrobeat-Esque instrumental, topically, it’s similar to Balance.
On a banging beat, Timaya serenades a girl on “Akuna”. Alikiba contributes some line to the vain self acclamations on Number One, the lines are raw and a stark departure from Akuna. He returned to Akuna’s narrative on Obrigado, this time around, he is not ready to settle down. This was Timaya talking, not the kind of dude who is impressed with settling down with a woman. Obrigado’s message was concise.
Stoopid was a bland attempt at recreating a mid-tempo Stoopid.
