Ice Prince, in the last decade of Nigerian hip-hop, is worthy to be referred to as the prince of rap; who sits directly next to the most honored Nigerian rap Chairman, M.I Abaga, who represents a well-deserved monument and a king in Nigerian hip-hop to date. He was the former CEO of (Chocolate City Music).
Panshak Henry Zamani, 36, joined the lift that elevated hip-hop in Nigeria as he also expanded the culture and its hinges across the diaspora.
”Oleku”, is the 2010 Ice Prince’s breakthrough track while in Choc City, that record uplifted his career and held visible proof of his dominance in the Nigerian music industry at that time.
He literally transited on various scales and ranges, from “Everybody Loves Ice Prince” his debut album in 2011, to “Fire Of Zamani” 2013, “Jos To The World” 2016, and more in between that have preserved him.
He went deep into his creations, explored his skillful rap and his act of singing solo until now.
Ice Prince is creative and he has shown for it through his songs even if they could mostly boast of pop smoothness and its appeal that lacked in a certain level of hit potentiality.
Nevertheless, he is still the prince.
“Kolo”, is Ice Prince’s third released single this year under his record imprints (Super Cool Cats) that vapors feelings of pragmatic woman loving, attached with emotional stricken essence.
“Kolo” was set out after the release of his previous singles: “Melanin” and “Shalaye” that sits next to “Kolo”, which serve as pop ballad and has been offered with pensive infiltration of his smooth rap; like one that glides and glories lightly and illuminates on the pop piloted and structured by the popular Nigerian pop star, Oxlade.
“Kolo’s” trajectory, definitely boast of a beautiful finish touch from pop elite build-up.
The puny chorusing came from a beautiful reverbing repetition of “Kolo, Kolo”, before Boy Ox, described some goals that he desires to meet for his woman.
Like using his last card to spoil her life and how she drives him very crazy.
How she makes him Kolo sequel.
He choruses briefly and laid up a bridge before the entrance of Ice Prince’s appealing rap opened up distinctively.
“Ah! I’ve been out here thinking/I’ve been smoking and overdose drinking/Tryna make you a queen and a wife/Ma macaroni with chess on the side/Hello! Hey shawty nice to meet you/Ah gats make money spoil you and your sister/Make I send ram to your mama for Easter/I no fit whine you mama you no be lister/Girl you make ah man go nut/The way you set with your chest and butt/Damn you make ah man go/Got ma left, Oxlade do the rest of the talk”.
Ice Prince deduced simpler flows with bars in between, that savored his exact same taste and flavor.
Notwithstanding, the record is a highly pop-driven song and its beauty, sustained.
Ice Prince played nice and retained his edge as the great rapper in between.
He literally let Oxlade do his poppy illumination tang, as Ox’s appeal was regular and strong, holding the chorus line and bridged for Ice’s entrance to take special ir=ts appearance and it was strictly exceptional.
The record was a medium that makes Ice Prince explore once more like he was on his 2010 “Oleku” that was shared between himself and his label mate, Brymo.
The same energy was deduced for “Kolo”.
The range at which it savored Ice’s flavor entirely is what keeps the A game exceptionality, the same time chemistry on the latter record was shared with Ox and made it a next-door song to “Oleku” that has a fuller flavor of Ice Prince.
“Kolo” is a great pop record sectioned and delivered aptly.
Both acts jointly perfected it all.
Right into the visual as well, the great taste wasn’t losing a bit.
The song is great actually, nevertheless, it was a pop-driven song but Ice Prince still found a way to fit in perfectly and left Oxlade to illuminate.
He was the pop star and Ice prince was the rapper, it was very clear and now I understand that the real Ice Prince flavor isn’t lost completely but only have to find ways to fit it in perfectly.
He is still the prince of Nigerian hip-hop because the richness of his rap still has the same great taste after the last decade of his dominance in the Nigerian music industry, and a little beyond.
