Ice Prince’s single ‘Oleku’ which has been as successful as the crisis in the Jos, has also seen numerous remakes by different artists; but a remarkable version was released on the internet by Yung6ix titled ‘Oleku (Warri Version)’ which became a instant web hit, generating buzz for the young rapper.
Yung6ix kicks off by acknowledging the ‘Big Dogs’ in the game that has attempted to remake the massive hit. The song retains the melody of the original but the lyrics are comical in nature and revolves around representing the southern part of the country. The remake is as catchy and fresh as the original, this feature most of the so-called remakes failed to achieve for instance the remake by upcoming artists in Babcock University sounded like something picked up from a trash can.
Word on the streets, is that there is a video in works for the song, and his latest mixtape “Green Light Green” is slated to be released early 2011; we are definitely going to be seeing a lot of the up and coming MC. Hit or Miss? Hit for sure, it is a must listen.
