On Tuesday, August 21, the expected cooperation, "Aza" Davido, Duncan the Mighty and Peruzzi was released, but unlike the wow effect created by his previous power functions, subsequent reactions suggest that the time has come when the flagship of Port Harcourt will become a more deliberate choice of the song he jumps to.
Duncan Mighty is the flavor of the Nigerian music industry at the moment, and it's no surprise that everyone is looking for a bit of their magic.
His technical skill on the hooks is really amazing. The way he repeats his native language is charming attractions, and his vocals deliver a breathtaking piece of musical bliss on a certain day.
Since the moment he blessed Wizkid with the help of Fake love, which became an instant hit, Duncan Mighty was on the list of "must-work-with-to-get-a-hit" of every artist looking for a guaranteed entry in the main record.
But this is not peculiar to him, as often happens with every "newly discovered hit" or with any artist who has the opportunity to deliver the correct hook or verse, turning it into an ordinary entry into an anthem.
when 2face Idibia appeared on the stage, everyone wanted his part, it was no different for Raggedman After he stirred up hostile waters Ehen, a verse from him was the Holy Grail, whom rappers were looking for, for example Wyzkid and Olamayd also went through this route and at the international level, such names as Rihanna, Akon, T-Pain were most noticeable at the time of their appearance.
But just like suppressing sound in music, the least can be especially for an artist like Duncan Mighty, who is not exactly a beginner.
For a long time, his legacy, based on his talent, was also fueled by this myth around his music with the conservative stance he chose while remaining in the Port Harcourt region at a time when every artist jumped on the next bus to Lagos.
This is understandable when artists try to profit as much as possible on their "15-minute fame", but there is a higher risk of early burnout compared to a steady period of influence.
Since May, when he enjoyed the "degeneration" of the variety with the release Fake love, Duncan Mighty showed more than 15 released songs in the last three months.
An average of 4 songs a month, one song a week, and while he scored several hits along the way, obviously there were also misses.
The last few features are especially becoming too predictable, less intimate and not as refreshing as chants.
Most of his functions are connected around the same theme "Love", so his lyrics also become repetitive, and you'll find that he even returns lines from his old songs, as he did Lova Lova with Tivoi Savage, with lyrics, "If I break your heart, it's like a leak of oil", originally used in the song "Kill me softly" released on his last studio album, Certificate,
Beyond the fact that he put a stellar verse on Fake love, one thing that also worked in favor of Wene Mighty was that listeners were tired of the saturated and now monotonous "Shaku Shaku" vibe, and the world has not heard from him for quite some time, so his sound was the smoke of fresh air, allowing his fans enough time to fully absorb his melody.
There was also a feeling of nostalgia that music lovers who listened to him when he released his debut album, Koliwater in 2008.
But 15 functions down the line, and there are no evolving, little experimenting, and everything starts to sound the same, and is directed to the obsolete door faster than the last trend.
The attraction now dazzled the brilliance of his creativity and did not allow him to take the time to pick up and deliver more special offers.
So, yes, we understand that the newly discovered attractiveness is good and recognizes his work ethic, but it will be interesting to see how he took a few steps back, to be more selective in the cooperation in which he jumps, and judging by the way he consistently delivered a new project every two years, perhaps it's energy to release another defining body of work before the end of the year.
To leave a legacy, Duncan Mighty does not have to be ubiquitous in every song, but in order for his songs to make sense of living longer, they have a more exciting effect and constantly remain in the listener's playlists and in their hearts.
