KOREDE

Mike Abdul is a Nigerian music artiste that first shot into the limelight as one over four of the popular Midnight Crew consisting of Patricia King, Odunayo Ojo Onasanya, Micheal Olayinka and Olugbenga Oyebola. While he’s still part of the crew, he does his own music too with a number of albums to his credit. His latest album ‘Korede’ particularly fascinates me because it’s a total redefinition of the man, Mike Abdul. I said that! If you know him well enough you’ll understand better. From his previous songs and more especially his numerous features and collaborations, he is notorious for his loud and not too gentle beats and vibes. Man! The guy is loud. And you do know his beats are mostly on the fast side, remember the popular ‘Morire’.
When I first heard ‘Korede’, the headlining song for his new album on a radio morning show, I was wowed beyong measure. Couldn’t help asking the people around if that was actually Mike. So cool, calm and collected, lol. Anyways, I downloaded the song and I’m loving it by the moment. Plus the lyrics, they are just inspiring. So I have written them down from several replays and here they are on a platter of gold. Thank me later.
