The proficient singer-songwriter who had a splendid yr, writing for ‘Celia’s Tune’ for Tiwa Savage and different songs for Mr. Eazi and Adekunle Gold used the 6-track EP to debate.
He took to his Twitter and wrote that, “I made just a few guarantees to myself this yr and that is one. Benefit from the 2nd chapter of my Three half sequence titled ‘MYSELF’ OUT NOW!! Take this one in guys. You’ll not be upset.”
The venture options extra uptempo Afro-pop, Afro-Swing and even Juju-inspired information which sees an introspective Moelogo talk about touching matters from a first-person perspective.
All through the EP, it seems like Moelogo is saying, ‘The world has a number of issues as a result of individuals lack a centre of self, from the place most issues come. They concentrate on different individuals a little bit an excessive amount of. I am not saying be self-obsessed, or self-centred. I am merely saying that it is high-quality to concentrate on your self generally. It would not make you self-obsessed or self-centred.‘
When there may be chaos, he seems to be at what he did incorrect. When in pursuit of affection, he quips that that ‘Self Love‘ is required earlier than one can adequately love one other. On the superb ‘You,’ Moelogo confronts his detractors. It seems like he is lastly letting out what he is all the time wished to say on a cathartic path.
On ‘Feelings,’ he additionally takes one other perspective to debate how his love is not correctly reciprocated on appreciated. Curiously, Incisive and M.anifest additionally ship spectacular rapped verses and serve a goal.
When he discusses love from a mushy perspective, full of mushy statements, he is additionally on the centre of all of it. He sings, “Mumidani…”
In English which means, ‘Maintain me…‘ or ‘Do not let me go…’
On the centre of all of it is Moelogo’s perception in God. All through his profession, his music has all the time referenced that perception. On ‘You,’ he sings that, “Who’re you to be speaking down on me, once I be God pikin…”
On ‘Self Love,’ he prays to God that, “Edumare sho mi o, ma je ki gained mu mi o…”
In English which means, “God defend me, do not allow them to catch me…”
If Magic EP was full of tons of gratitude, Myself is full of prayers. On ‘Brand’s Prayer,‘ he additionally exhibits gratitude to God, however he additionally affords solemn prayers and speaks optimistic affirmations for himself. ‘Destiny’ additionally ends with one other bout of gratitude to God.
First off, this EP is one other high quality physique of labor as a result of Moelogo is just incapable of releasing a median venture – it is simply not going to occur. Nonetheless, there’s a fear that he is repeating the identical formulation and saying the identical factor.
Whereas the central theme of self was not the main focus of ‘Magic EP,’ sure songs on that EP and ‘Myself EP‘ have unbelievable topical similarities. Gratitude won’t ever be cliche, however expansive matters are necessary. Equally, ‘Myself EP‘ may have completed with a unique album sequence.
‘Myself’ is not a foul EP, however Moelogo wants extra experimentation to increase the vary of his matters and music. He can do it, he simply must be keen to do it.
