    Been thinking recently that Tiwa’s been doing music part-time
    so i approached the album casually without expectation but on listening, honestly its also impressive and i did not have
    cause skip from A-Z. Every one flavor is catered for
    from up-tempo Techno house,religious, r&b,bump and
    work, tungba and baraje to neo heart. That Fela interlude’s therefore dope…She appears smooth clean vocally and many songs on there are going to be evergreen.

    The truth is this recording should have come out with a money-back guarantee.Gold standing.
