Nigerian afropop stalwart Oritse Femi delivers his most expansive body of work yet with the 24-track double album “IDAN”. Clocking in at over 80 minutes, this epic undertaking sees the artist showcase the full range of his musical talents.
The project wastes no time getting the party started with lead single “Jofunmi”, an infectious dancefloor filler highlighting Oritse’s flair for catchy melodies and rhythmic grooves. Elsewhere, tracks like “Double Double” and “Mercy of God” spotlight the singer’s emotive vocals over stylish production.
Oritse also flexes his versatility by experimenting with different tempos, styles and languages. Standouts include the sultry R&B slow jam “Sexy Lady” and the street-inspired “Murda”, which pays homage to Edo dancing culture with pounding beats. Urban influences are felt on cuts like “Energy” featuring Zlatan, while “Alhaji” adds a touch of Yoruba.
Across the sprawling 24 tracks, themes of love, praise, culture and struggle are beautifully expressed. High-profile collaborations with seasoned hitmakers like DJ Lambo only enrich the listening experience.
Though a sizable time commitment, Oritse’s skilled songwriting and production carry the project cohesively from start to finish. “IDAN” reinforces his status among the vanguard of Afro-fusion with this ambitious, genre-spanning tour de force. Fans of contemporary Nigerian music will find much to admire in this stellar double album.
