Nigerian Afro-fusion Artist, Singer, and Songwriter, Emarshal is looking to start 2021 on a high note with the release of his new single ‘Oyim’ under his new record label imprint Dream Cruiz Records.
Emmanuel Kalu, popularly known as Emarshal is an undeniable talent from Aba, Abia state, Nigeria but birthed in Ajegunle, Lagos state with a couple of records to his name in the past.
“Oyim” is a sonic blend of Afro-soul and mainstream sound with a catchy percussive beat and vibrant keys. The single draws listeners in from its opening underlying guitar underneath playful lyrics ‘ Nwa mfuru na aba’ in a clear soothing tone that all but demands you move along with the mid-temp beat produced by Candelbeat.
The song’s title is perfectly indicative of what is inside a groovy love song that celebrates romantic affection in all its glory. This artistic body of work is a heart-warming rendition of solemn and beautiful love, made in dedication to every beautiful person that has ever longed for and been in love.
For a debut, it is incredibly compelling as the sweet-voiced singer seamlessly showcased adept penmanship and vocal ability throughout the song over a mix of Igbo and Pidgin English language on different verses and the chorus.
As we continue to enjoy “Oyim”, Emarshal is on an impressive run in 2021 and it will not take much time before he takes over the Nigerian music market.
This is one to add to your weekend playlist.
