Check out ‘Ice Cream Factory’ creator Lynxxx on the cover of the february edition of Genevieve alongside actors Joseph Benjamin and Chris Attoh.
The cover is the definition of S.W.A.G: She Wants A Gentleman, from the petals to everything.
“What is Utunu?” is the question you ask yourself when you listen to the debut of C.E.O meets Entertainer ‘Lynxxx, it is relieving that the web/graphic designer answered this question in the opening number ‘Where U Belong’, where the rapper delivered the lines “They wanna know; what’s Utunu? That’s my lingo; your parade is being changed…” You listen to “This Is Lynxxx” ready for the unexpected, because with an artist like Lynxxx you don’t know what to expect Hip-Hop? Dance? Afro-Pop? Afro-Hop? The mutli-talented Lynxxx made it work in his debut effort by fussing these genres in his LP. The album opened very strong with the classic hip-hop number ‘Where U Belong’, followed by the massive club-banger ‘International’. ‘This Is Lynxxx’ shows maturity and versatility, with catchy hooks, sultry melody, smooth and flirtatious lines, brilliant production and the rapper is also in touch with his comic side. The hit single ‘Change Your Parade’, then for the lovers, ‘Ice Cream Factory’ introducing Enze is definitely a must listen; the sexy number can set the mood right. The Wizkid assisted ‘Good Luving’, the song about a threesome ‘Alabukun ‘ which features singer Banky W… the banging tune which celebrates BlackBerry users ‘Ping’.
Interestingly the LP changed its parade towards the end, as it failed to maintain the momentum it opened with, notwithstanding ‘This Is Lynxx’ still offered some brilliant tunes in its final minutes ‘Monsta Musik’ which features Ikechwuku, Sarkodie and Sauce Kid, the infectious ‘Mixed Signals’ the Naeto C assisted Jollof Musik and ‘Spotlight’. Utunu is a definitely a lingo you should learn, as “This is Lynxxx” is a very memorable album, and also a record that can stand among its peers.
