Multi-talented music singer Genio Bambino dropped his first major project some 3 weeks back, a mixtape album titled “Virtuoso”.
A “Virtuoso” according to Wikipedia refers to an individual with outstanding technical ability in the arts which favours music creatives mostly.
Genio Bambino also known as Retro Dee is a singer, rapper, songwriter and producer, a member of the emerging Monster Boyz music group that has three other amazing talents in ThatBoyGMK, Santi and Bankyondbeatz.
Bambino’s sound however on this project tilts more to the R&B side, with artists like Odunsi the engine, Santi and Lady Donli featuring on the 11-track EP.
“Virtuoso” is that kind of playlist to relax with on a Sunday, when cruising on the freeway or lying pleasurably on the sandy beach in Lagos or Miami.
Lust and affection is thrown in here and there on this mix.
Elements of Trap, Rap and Soul are sprinkled on the project so well it’s a delight and guilty pleasure to listen to.
“Virtuoso” is a project with a touch of genius, merging different elements of music genres beautifully to tell stories revolving around various shades of relationship experiences the audience can relate to.
Genio Bambino is a bundle of talent, and could be said to be one of the new school faces of Afro-fusion embodying RnB, Soul and Hip Hop all in one.
