Fans attack 9ice on Social Media over Davido collaboration

Remixes are mostly done to give the original work of a song a better feel with sometimes a new verse or rhythm.

When artistes remix their old song, they tend to feature another musician who they deem fit to do justice to the previously released song (which might have been a hit or not). That way, the guest artiste contributes his quota on the song making it a hit again.

One of the advantages of such collaboration is that the guest artiste would influence the invitee’s fan base, and may probably begin to follow the artiste too because they are now exposed to his music.

But what would be said about a guest artiste who sings off the theme and rhythm of a song he’s supposed to “murder”? How does the owner of the song react to the artiste fail to deliver on the song he is featured on?

Abolore Akande aka 9ice has been off the radar of music for a while although he has been releasing songs but has had no hit track. This was until he released Living Things, a song which became an anthem after his last outing, Gbamu Gbamu a few years back.

‘Living Things’  was doing quite well until he invited Davido for a remix, he must have thought he took a bold step, he must have thought the song was going to a whole new level by featuring the IF singer but unfortunately Davido failed to deliver, going by fans reaction.

Omo Baba Olowo as he is fondly called didn’t pull his weight in the remix of ‘Living Things’, making some music lovers to lambast 9ice for featuring him on the song.

The original version of ‘Living Things’ which was solely delivered by 9ice was already a major comeback for the Oyo State-born singer.

Below are some of the comments gathered from various music blogs about the remix.

“This Is Trash. Total Bullshit. Davido Spoilt The Chorus. Age The Chorus Was The Concept Behind The Song. Dunno Why 9ice Allowed Him. Men u gat d right words for it. It’s wack I swear d real one make sense die,” a fan, Folaranmi OT wrote on a popular music blog.”

Another commenter opined that “Davido was screaming like he is forcing himself to sing see how he calm down on if and the one he did with Teckno but this one he wacked the song himself make 9ice no waste money on the video oooo make em just do another banger.”
