EP Review: The MissTape – DeanKelly

I don’t usually don’t do reviews on Mondays, but I had to drop this set entitled ‘The MissTape’, coming all the way from Nigeria through newcomer, DEANKELLY.

In a nutshell, ‘The MissTape’ is a love note where the singer/songwriter and producer declare his love for a special lady he had an eye on for a while, desperately hoping that she responds favourably to his declaration.

From the get-go, the EP presents infectious and vivacious hooks, that’s inspired by his Nigerian heritage, with a subtle backdrop which (to me) gives off a R&B pop vibe, taking influence from his idol, Chris Brown.

DEANKELLY strategically uses a smooth and seductive rhythms of the Motherland to achieve   that across the broad appeal.

Check out the EP and my songs recommendations below:

Must Listen: Parole, MonaLisa, Gbam!

New Track: Like A Child – Sarah Téibo

Multi award-winning Gospel singer/songwriter SARAH TÉIBO‘s latest single ‘Like A Child’ encourages each and every one of us to fully embrace the inner child and leave your cares and woes to the big man above. ‘Like A Child’  is the lead single off her highly anticipated sophomore album ‘Keep Walking’ due for release this summer.

Sporting a real smooth urban R&B drive, ‘Like A Child’ was written by Sarah with producer Luke (GKID) Grant, who produced Britain’s Got Talent 2015 semi-finalist Sakyi Four’s R&B/Afrobeat offering, ‘Simmer Down’. The four-minute production features the spine-tingling harmonies from one of UK’s promising singers, Tehillah Daniel and The Voice UK’s 2018 current contestant Jason Nicholson-Porter.

Sarah grew up in Nigeria where she started singing in choirs from the age of ten, citing Soul and R&B legends including Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Kim Burrell as major influences.

New Track: City of Dreams – Tobi Sunmola

Having brought the heat with previous singles ‘Simba’ and ‘Wild Wild East’ Mancunian wordsmith TOBI SUNMOLA released the title track off his forthcoming EP ‘City Of Dreams’

Inspired by the film ‘Inception’, ‘City Of Dreams’ is a display of Tobi’s admiration and pride for his adopted city following the tragic events earlier in the year. Although the emotional track was written before the 02 bombing, Sunmola maintains that the meaning behind the lyrics only made sense after, as he yearns, “don’t believe what you read in the news baby, the city’s alive”.

Growing up in Nigeria, Tobi recalls saving up lunch money daily to skip school and head to the studio with his rap crew Dope Kommunity. Moving to Manchester aged 16 the young poet instantly immersed himself in the UK hip hop scene recording in local youth club studios. Showing signs of a promising career early on, the aspiring talent has been advocated by the likes of  and BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra.

Captivating, and honest, Sunmola is able to connect with his audience through an inspired sincerity rarely seen amongst rappers so young…here’s your chance to check out his work; listen to ‘City of Dreams.’
