Emarshal, real name Emmanuel kalu is an undeniable talent from Abia state, Aba Nigeria but birthed in Ajegunle, Lagos state with couple of records to his name in the past.
Oyim is a sonic blend of Afrosoul, mainstream sound with catchy percussive beat and vibrant keys. drawing listeners in from its opening undelaying guitar plays over playful lyrics ‘ Nwa mfuru na aba’ in a clear soothing tones that all but demands you move along with the mid-temp beat produced by Candelbeat.
Emarshal narrates the tale of his love interest experience after bumping into the lady of his dream in the male restroom at a party in Aba. The song’s title is perfectly indicative of what is inside a gooey love song that celebrates romantic affection in all its glory.
For a debut, it’s incredibly compelling as the sweet-voiced singer seamlessly showcased adept penmanship and vocal ability throughout the song over a mixed Igbo language and pidgin on different chorus and verses.
As we continue to enjoy OYIM, Emarshal is on an impressive run in 2021 and it will not take much time before he takes over the Nigerian market.
