Nigerian rapper and the CEO of Zanku records, Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael popularly known as Zlatan Ibile linked up with his friend, Oladips for a new project tagged 'Mainland To Island'.
The hip-hop project celebrates Lagosians for their grinds and sweats to survive. It's a project that the African story in the best way possible.
Recall in 2015, exactly six years from now, the west and east linked up in 'Two Kings' by Olamide and Phyno. The project became the first collaborative project released in the Nigerian music scene. Phyno and Olamide employed Lil Kesh, Wizkid, and Storm Rex in the 10-tracks album.
'Mainland To Island' is a hardcore hip-hop jam with elements of trap and afrobeat.
The first track is the only single on the project. Mainland To Island is pure hip hop. It's a beautiful art piece with poetic lies and mind-blowing rhythms.
The third track 'Zaddy' is a dancehall song. Like expected, Zlatan and Oladips talk about their quest to get a daughter that will call them Zaddy.
Consistency is calm, sexy, and enticing. It's a romantic cool vibe. To me, this is my best jam on the project.
