Nigerian music group, The Cavemen, a sibling duo of bassist and drummer, returns with their sophomore album, "Love & Highlife".
The 18-tracks project with a bonus track is a rich expression of African culture, community, and humanity. The Cavemen’s rendition on this project mines nostalgia while updating it with luxuriant modernity.
The album is supported by two singles 'Selense' and 'Udo'. It features Cobhams Asuquo, PC Lapez, Made Kuti, Etuk Ubong, and a voice-over from their mother.
Love and Trials is one of my favourite songs on this album. It is a love song with spectacular lyrics.
Performed in Igbo language, The Cavemen tries to remind us not to answer critics and haters as they will always be there. It is a beautiful record featuring PC Lapez.
Here is a groovy danceable tune from The Cavemen and Etuk Ubong called Kpokom. It is an uptempo highlife tune.
And here is one of my favourites songs on this album. The Cavemen try to plead with their mysterious women not to be a stranger.
This is no doubt the most groovy tune on this album. It's an addictive record.
