Review: Solid Star feat. Tiwa Savage/ ‘Baby Jollof’
This is another dance music from the Isoko man but he is not alone on this as he tries marrying a Tiwa verse with his to create something of an enjoyable experience for the audience. And indeed it is a charming music union.
Honestly, I want to say something in the line of ‘the production is super but Savage isn’t exactly special on it; neither is his host, Solid Star’, but I can’t. The effort plugs most of the gaps; both singers seem to know exactly what they got in the booth for. And they nail this one. ‘Baby Jollof’ fails critics like me because it is as well sung as it is radio-ready. And then capped with some wicked mastering no thanks to Master Kraft; this should pass for a hit, yeah? I believe so.
There is a great keyboard and drum presence, with an unmistakable African feel to ‘Baby Jollof’. The song is original, with just enough garnishing from the instrumentals that we nod in assent and give the cut a B.
