EP REVIEW: AKAYCENTRIC – AFTER ALL

NIGERIA’S FRESHEST AFROPOP SENSATION AKAYCENTRIC HAS RECENTLY DROPPED A NEW 4-TRACK EP ENTITLED “AFTER ALL”, AND WE HAD THE PLEASURE OF LISTENING TO IT IN FULL.

Nigeria is currently regarded as the industry leader and standard for AfroPop, dominating the African pop music market with a sound known as Afrobeats or Naija pop. While this genre of music has its passionate base of fans, many are also split in its increasing lack of versatility and ambition.

This is where Akaycentric has proven critics wrong on their industry forecasts with his groundbreaking, newly released EP “After All”.

Released by Monkey House Media, “After All” features a deliciously unique brand of AfroPop that is sure to attract and charm music lovers everywhere.

Opening with the newly released title Single “After All”, the  EP quickly proves that Akaycentric has crafted something truly brilliant here. With its lush mid-tempo groove and intimate lyrical content that touches on themes of love and heartbreak; this track quickly draws you in with its engulfing and magnificently produced sonic landscape.

This track features the effective use of flowing percussive rhythms, relaxing (yet dance-inducing) drum-work, and skillful electric guitar (performed by renown guitarist, Fiokee).

The EP also features Akaycentric’s previously released hit Single “Parachute”.

“Parachute” is an infectiously upbeat and fun track infused with the appeal of pop, soul of R&B, and features a variety of sounds consistent with African music traditions.

“AFTER ALL” IS A MUST LISTEN, AND IS ALREADY BECOMING A FAN FAVORITE.
