The legend is back, now prefered to be known as 2baba, he collaborates with one of the hottest prospects in the Nigerian music scene and DMW signee Peruzzi

2Baba the artiste is a super cool cat which seems to have more than nine lives. In a career spanning over two decades, the Benue born musician has dabbled in forms much broader than what he brought to the game in pre Plantashun Boyz days. 

In his first single of 2018, the legend doesn't seem to have lost his magic spin on the genius approaches he takes to quite common themes. Amaka is a groovy song but don't be deceived; you're in the frustrated heart of every man who's had to wait for a lady and the lady well, doesn't show up. Lines like I don buy diesel, I dun on gen for my house//I dun call Larry, him dey setup for yard are overzealous and mischievous but from the onset, 2Baba states a universally known fact: I like woman, I dey straight forward.

With DMW's Peruzzi singing from the same perspective, the young and not so young corroborate the story of many people out there, the sinking feeling of disappointment sung in a not so disappointing way and in the most original of beats in about four minutes.

Amaka features so many but the most impressive is undoubtedly I dun wait you sotey, I dun dey lose weight o. The line is just about a sum of 2Baba's extraordinary writing skills. Taken at first listen for granted, but on introspect is the wittiness of an observer, the tongue in cheek expressiveness of a master satirist, the kind of line in which a pop wave is built around; shirts, caps, Twitter hash tags. 

Amaka is typical 2Baba; not your typical African artiste. With this single gearing up for a commercial success, it should be declared genius how he still is able to get these kind of songs (easy to fail at) and still call up the perfect feature.
