Like a young prophet in his prime, Timix on the EP guides the youth to reflect on the past with wisdom and plan for the future with commitment.
Extended Play - Gentle Gra Gra
Artist - Timix
Guest - BOJ
Record Label - Migmie Music (2017)
Following his melodious "Mind Full Madness" EP, Timix puts out this confident body of work “Gentle Gra Gra”, which discusses life as Timix has known it.
Timix highlights his mistakes made, lessons he’s learnt along the way and like a good teacher generously issues friendly warnings to friends not to walk the same path he treaded.
He gets a good collaboration out of DRB Lasgidi’s BOJ the smooth singer on the track 'Eff it up'.
Timix tells his loverboy story in ‘Nisho’, a groovy song with a catchy vibe to it.
Rounding the EP off, he goes sober as he puts his conscious thoughts into good on the track ‘Gentle Gra Gra’, where he talks about taking control of his own destiny in a calculated way.
There are life lessons that could be drawn out even as you listen and enjoy the rich Afrobeat elements coming together.
Amongst many things, the EP admonishes the listener (both young and old) to reflect on the past with wisdom and plan for the future with commitment. The EP was created with the mind to change the way the young ones see themselves and their role in society.
