The 2016 record, “Coolest Kid In Africa” by Davido, which features Nasty C is like a fresh experience of Davido hooking and chorusing his desires on a different genre at that time; he flagged himself as the coolest kid from his continent, putting himself on the frontiers to become elevated through the songs’ theme and his almost weak delivery.
He kept delivering at his own pace to make one perceive the belief (as Africa’s coolest kid), whereas the coolest kid wasn’t farfetched either, but was close to him and was unleashing the perfection in his creative orthodox through the genre which his cool rap has been part of making his entire music, he has been laying pensive rest to rap culture, hip-hop and emo-trap music from the entire continent (Africa).
Hip-hop is a complex and simple genre, and sincerely it didn’t seat Davido’s ability to kill a beat completely, though it was a beautiful take from him that lacked great satisfaction and appeal.
In between he kept resounding, “I’m the coolest kid in Africa”, and that didn’t also seat well with him because he is couched in multiple hindrances that makes him not the coolest, age-wise compared to the South African act Nasty C, is what I primarily considered.
Davido is four years older than Nasty C, his body physique at that time and now, also his structure as well as his unappealing delivery on the song compared to Wizkid’s take on Emtee’s 2015 “Roll Up Re-Up” that also featured South African singer and rapper, AKA.
Wizkid is a pop star, as well as Davido, and this is the same artistic comparison on who’s a better act when it is obvious who has the crown on him. They had a similar genre to discover and fully harness beauty, while the best take is Wizkid’s.
‘Coolest Kid In Africa’, depicts Davido’s desire to be on top. I understood that the genre was Nasty’s primary sophistication which he completely showed without straining, Davido ended in jumping on the hip-hop-trap-infused genre without leaving any experience, behind.
The music and the theme are good in a way that is meant to direct a cause that should make the public see the coolest kid from my continent, in Africa.
And Davido put himself at the frontiers, a lot apart from what I said here unlike his public craziness and media attention-seeking completely pulls him down and takes him far off what he claims to be.
The deliveries he offered that song wasn’t all pensive either to remark his desires completely, Nasty C is the coolest kid as far as I know from that song, and when you understand as I do that the C in Nasty could simply stand for the “coolest” kid from Africa, not Davido who lives to hunts everything down.
