The new sounds emanating from Mavin Records gives us reason to rejoice, not only in the melody, but also to celebrate the living legend that Don Jazzy is.
Few men can be trusted to deliver the best of materials at the top level, consistently, and without fail. Don Jazzy belongs in that class. With each mention of the ‘Doro’ word, his brilliance is revealed, again and again.
The stars at Mavin Records, consisting of the ever-relevant Tiwa Savage, Dr. Sid, and D’Prince, coupled with the unproven newer generation - Dija, Reekado Banks, and Korede Bello, can look to a brighter future, individually, and as a family. Each of them possesses something unique and definitely brings it to the table.
In the mid-tempo, feel-good song, ‘Dorobucci’, we see that. Don Jazzy gave us the fatherly feel, Reekado Banks took us on a chorus of some sort, with his street persona shining through his vocals. Tiwa Savage’s dynamism, borne by her light voice, made us hit certain notes. Dr Sid stabilised proceedings, with a reminder of his ‘Siductive’ delivery. The ‘Surulere’ man made us dream again and dropped lyrics to excite the pervert in us.
Korede Bello, found joy and unrestrictive happiness in this song. A mainstay of the industry, the young man with slick fingers pushed up our joy, with his ‘Doromega, Dorosuper, Dorostar, Doromegasuperstar,’ line. He seems to always have a little something extra in his bag of tricks.
Dija played safe. Which is a good thing. Her repetitive lines added familiar value, giving us a consistent balance in our auditory perception of the wonder, and gives D’Prince a perfect spot to spring in, with his ‘Doro is a cheerful giver.’ Pervert alert?
With D’Prince, the Doro-feel just gets better. Not the catchiest of lines, but the feel-good feel is maintained. All the dynamism to carry the song has been done by Tiwa, Korede, and Reekado. D’Prince is some sort of water-carrier. Not outstanding, but fitting in with others and improving the general product.
Reekado Banks and Don Jazzy took the final stage, street comes alive in the chorus again, and Don Jazzy says goodbye in style.
The beat has landed, a hit has been done, and Mavin Records have the perfect collaboration to play to their strengths.
Don Jazzy has done it again.
