Nigerian afro-fusion singer and songwriter Black Kalonji releases his debut studio album “The Pusherman Dreams Demo. The album which consists of 13 tracks features his previously released tracks Planno Ft VT ” The Way and Sideways.
The highly anticipated album is a project he featured Izzik, VT, OBS , Plug Odis, BADYOUTH, and Khalasheen.
The album excels on impeccable songwriting as Black Kalonji launched into a land that had just witnessed a rain of love. With his quill and ink in the ensuing petrichor, Black Kalonji creates sunsets and rainbows about love, longing, adulation, and pain.
It’s good that artists don’t want to be boxed into one brand of music. Sometimes it won’t work, but the effort and recognition of a need to diversify sound and style is all that matters. To this end, Black Kalonji intermittently went into the land of afro-fusion and delivered some songs.
The album has strong moments and mesmerizing songs, but if we’ll be fair, this is not an exceptional album and it is very unlikely to be a classic.
