Song On Review: "Ghost Mode" By Phyno Feat. Olamide.

Song On Review: "Ghost Mode" By Phyno Feat. Olamide.

"Ghost Mode!! They no they see me!!!".... I stumbled across this song on radio, (Beat FM), one day, and it caught me off guard. I couldn't believe my ears. I have followed Phyno's progress from the eastern part of Nigeria to his break into the Lagos Market and I'd say this is a beginning of a revolution in Phyno's Career!! This song was so crazy(well, "Ndi Ara").

Lets Skip to the review, please.

On Point. Gangsta and Raw. The beat intepreted the idea behind the crazy song. The use of trumpets and those chiming Guitars was lovely. The drum beat was rythmic and carried the song's energy till the end.

For the idea of the song, the Lyric was smack On-Point. It was meant to be a crazy bragging rights song; Phyno and Olamide really showed their worth. The unique thing about the track is the fusing of English, Pidgin English, Ibo and Yoruba. What would have made the song perfect is if they had a crazy Hausa rapper on this crazy Joint. They made lots of crazy punch lines like "Kanayo O Kanayo, No kana Gan = Olamide" and "Onye ara na kpo onye ara onye ara nebe ona pu ara.... ana to ka ha ne le ana = Phyno". The chorus was emmm... Okay, though I expected something better from him compared to "Anamchikwanu". But I didn't get what he was saying about Genevieve in the song. Anybody knows?

Men! The energy was high, at the rooftop. The expressed the strength required for this kind of song. In my opinion, no one would have delivered it a hard as they did. I pity the people that Phyno was referring to in the song.

Now, here is the loop-side of the song. It virtually has no message content. It had no moral or societal lessons. I think he was just trying to pass a subliminal message to his haters. This is not the kind of song you listen to for inspiration, except inspiration to start a quarrel. Hehehe!

Well, the concept was nice. The whole bush thingy and Phyno's gangsta make up. But I feel the video was too artificial. The bushes looked like the kind in cartoons. Olamide didn't express that character behind the song they sang with his boring costume. He didn't carry the rawness the song portrayed. I guess Phyno tried to cut costs in the production. We saw some dry babes in the video, trying their best to avail to look tough.

Well, My last word on this song is Thumbs Up to Phyno and Olamide. Keep the game on. Expecting better things from you guys this year.

We rate the song, 6.00 in the 'Critico-Meter' of Music(1 being Excellent, 10 being Wacky).
"Lele. Nekwa ha. Oge me gi vum Nanya! Ghost Mode, U no dey see me!"

See Ya!!!!
