Nigerian singer Christopher Omenye, better known as Yung L, has released his much-awaited sophomore album, “Yaadman Kingsize”.

For the 11-track project, Yung L features Wizkid, Seun Kuti, Shank, Abood Khiery, Sammany Hajo, Rashid Omar and UK’s, Tiggs Da Author.

Yaadman Kingsize is, ultimately, the metamorphosis of Yung L’s Mr. Marley persona but on the album, there is more of the tinkering that he started on his debut, “Better Late Than Ever”.

Without sacrificing rigour, Yung L distils reggae, rock, afro-fusion, and afrobeat for a memorable showing. On “Yaadman (Intro),” the project’s opener, he is confessional and in prime sing-rapping form as he loops in billowing horns to add a backdrop to his energetic verse.

Yung L is a unique totem in afro-fusion’s gallery. Infinitely capable of switching between the more core drumming of Afropop and the genre’s broader reggae influence, Yung L has a special place among the generation of musicians diversifying the sound of music coming out of West Africa.

Juice and Zimm, Yung L’s January 2020 seven-song extended play, was bursting at its seams with soulfully-distilled riddims and ear-worms that often read like confessionals and slow-flickering party starters. Months later, the lustrous energy of “Eve Bounce” received a remix do-over; housing a guest from none other than Wizkid.

“Puna” and “Opp” are perfect examples of Yung L’s affinity for open-ended rock fusions that provide a base for his forward-thinking delivery. “Rasta,” a collaboration with foremost afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti, is similarly innovative, leaning on the call-and-response that made the genre one of the most acclaimed of its era.

Within Yaadman Kingsize, the “Eve Bounce (Remix)” maintains its sweltering energy, and the candour of “Police and Thief” brings a focus to the fundamental breach of trust that triggered last year’s momentous #EndSARS protests.

“Land of Light,” the stunning hymnal that closes Yaadman Kingsize is an indicator of the care taken to craft his sophomore album and, after the highs and lows of 2020, it is a pleasant, entertaining way to open 2021.

Singer, Seun Kuti has revealed that the federal government is yet to compensate or apologize to his family.

He revealed that the Federal government is yet t0 compensate or tender an apology to his family. Speaking on Omoyele Sowore, publisher of Sahara reporters and human right activist, the singer said he is a huge supporter of the activist ideas and that they have a lot in common.


In his words:

“IT’S A SHAME THAT WE’RE STILL RULED BY THE SAME PEOPLE MY FATHER WAS TALKING ABOUT 35 YEARS AGO OR SOMETHING, THAT’S POOR. WE NEED TO DO BETTER,MY FATHER SAID EVERYTHING HE HAD TO ABOUT BUHARI. HE’S A KIND PERSON THAT YOU DON’T NEED TO GO FAR TO FIND OUT WHAT MY FATHER THOUGHT ABOUT HIM.
BUHARI IS ONE PERSON, YOU KNOW BUT I FEEL THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT STILL OWES THE KUTI FAMILY AN APOLOGY, NOT JUST MY DAD, AND COMPENSATION.SOWORE’S CAUSE IS NIGERIA’S CAUSE, THE PEOPLE’S CAUSE. THIS OUR DEMAGOGUERY THAT WE LIKE IN NIGERIA, TRYING TO MAKE A DEMAGOGUE OF SOWORE IS THE WRONG WAY TO APPROACH THE ISSUE. I’M A HUGE SUPPORTER OF HIS IDEAS BUT THEY’RE NOT EXCLUSIVELY TIED TO HIM. SOWORE AND I HAVE A LOT IN COMMON.”
