Majeed: Harbinger of soothing melodies.
“Oh, that’s Majeed”
Different, but still a few ingenious artists have trod this path of deepening Afrobeat on a refined pedestal. Way before the recent evolution of Afrobeat. A veteran like Chris Okotie to the millennial Asa also includes the rave of melodic fusion intricately framed in lyrics themed on life, love, struggle, victories and heartbreaks, Chike.
Another soothsayer sets melodies to the wind, flailing with lyrics tingling to the ears. His mastery of vocal deftness as evinced in his Bittersweet EP is synonymous with his career. A singer that has entrenched a formidable framework for growth with an undeniable ability to fuse melodies with lyrics resonant with societal ills and values. Majeed is having a show-off to the audience’s thrill and satisfaction. Beaming with confidence as displayed in his latest single with Tiwa Savage, a song in which he glided with so much ease on undulating sonic waves. He did something only kings do.
This is a preemptive warning or hint, maybe, of a star shining brightly, and with time might be blinding.
Ekeh Chiaka Joseph is the harbinger of soothing melodies, he should get a seat at the high table.
