    I’m here screaming! Couldn’t stop dancing to this.

    I love this track. Sounds like a typical wedding ‘entrance song.

    The lyrics are deep too (for those that understand Igbo).

    But seriously, this guy was the soul of psquare…same sound, same beat.

    I also like the fact that he doesn’t make too much noise.

    I wish both Peter and Paul the best in their solo careers.

      Screaming because he replicated several songs that P Square made before? What a joke.

    All the best to Rudeboypsquare and Mr P. I’m not one to hype so I’ll be straight; the song’s alright just like Peter’s, but nothing “fire” (no pun intended). They both have to work harder now they’re starting over. All the best boys!

    All roads lead to the east this Christmas/new year for igbankwu.
    And this song will definitely be hot on the list for the bride’s dance in!
    Paul just scattered my head with this song.
    I also just heard his other song – fire fire ? ?
    Hate him or love him, the guy is gooood, effortless., great vocals. No wonder he has been silent since.
    Let your work speak for you.
    I’ve downloaded them all.

    Mediocre at best, but Nigerians will hype it of cos they were born into mediocrity. This sounds no different than any upcoming artist out there

    Personally, there is nothing special about the song, when compared to the music depth we have become accustomed to from the music table of Psquare. Even Peter’s song was average at best. Now, the issue is not who is better between the two but if they can survive in their new category, which involves competing with age long, well refined, A class solo artist such as Davido, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Phyno and others.

    Paul’s song felt like listening to another version of Flavour, while I can’t even put my hands on Peter’s music. Listening to their singles expressly indicates that, they would find it difficult competing with even artists that can’t be classified as A class such as korede Bello, Reekado Bankz.

    Peter and Paul are in the process of becoming a memory musically. They should ask Dbanj, who was forgotten like a candle in the wind. Most of the “i love paul” or “i love peter” is just a reflection of whose side you have always been on.

      In response to anonymous.

      Since bellanaija swallowed my comment from yesterday, let me retype my response.

      Your criticism ks wuite constructive but you need a better understanding of thr nigerian music market.

      Every music has a target audience.

      You cannot compare wizkid and davido to flavor and psquare…you cannot compare either groups with phyno olamide. They have different target audiences.

      Paul has retained the exact same sound of psquare, thus he will most likely retain their original audience. This song’ nkenji keke is a pure wedding song and it’s a hit in that regard. FIA and malo are club songs.

      Peter on the other hand seems to want to cater to the international audience hence his R n B kinda vibes. His target audience is different.

      Both definitely need to work harder.

    Now I see what they were saying. He does have the better voice and his first single is less auto-tuned to the “cool it down”.

    nice song ………rude boy you are good

    This shows that you do not have a firm grasp of the Nigerian Music Industry.

    Every musician has their market. You cannot compare psquare to Davido.or wizkid or olumide or falz. They have different target markets.

    There is a demand for ‘wedding songs’ in Nigeria… Esp in Igbo traditional weddings. And Flavor and psquare fit into this bracket nicely. This song and a lot of psquare songs (Eg no one like you, beautiful onyinye) fit into this niche.

    Paul will retain most of the psquare fans who are in love with their music and not personality, because he has retained the original sound and essence of the group.

    On the other hand, Peter has a different sound and needs a new target audience but he seems quite popular and hopefully should be able to get it with the right type of songs.

    A time will come when people will put sentiments aside and go for whoever is the better of the two.

    Also, if you listen to the other song Paul just released… Fire fire… It’s good and different….it has a club vibe to it esp if he remixes with other artistes such as patoranking cos the song has a reggae twist to it. I think he has a better understanding of the Nigerian market. I don’t think Paul is out to conquer the world. Hes seems content with his Nigerian market.. Which is not necessarily a bad thing.

    I wish them all the best.

    the song is nice i must say, but it is a typical psquare jam. expected different

    He just took the beat from their music Onyinye and one other song (I don’t remember the title) and changed the words. Both Peter and Paul are marching straight to the museum. Even as a duo, they were no longer innovative, let alone as individuals. I wish them the best.

    Good music with a dash of nothing special.

    Rude boy is Psquare…Peter is just a distraction ….
    Nice song Ruddy…
    Silence and hardwork speaks louder than a microphone .

    my honest review
    1) Nkenji Keke is a big hit..simple and short.. Can’t wait for the video….agree with someone above who said it will be big for traditional weddings( especially in the east) …..4/5…nice work paul

    2) Fire fire looks rushed ..he should have waited to tweak and clean it up a bit before releasing.. was a bit confused with the hallelujah chorus..2/5

    All in all ..it is good to hear that awesome voice again…?

    I am not going to participate in that stupid peter or paul fight…also agreed with the above who said Most of the “i love paul” or “i love peter” is just a reflection of whose side you have always been on.

      may be a traditional hit for those that understand the language but, unfortunately he released close to FIA by Davido and Nkenji keke can’t rival FIA. Even, kiss daniel’s YEBA is much better than Nkenji.

      This would have been a big hit, 3 years ago but right now, this is just a song you would listen to and say, good song but you forget about it.

    • john

      November 17, 2017 at 8:22 am

      Nonsense, FIA is a useless single ..don’t even compare it with paul…it is not even upto the davido last singles…I have not listen to “Yeba” ..so I wont say what I dont know on that…anyway , I guess time shall tell

    Love the mostly constructive criticisms of Peter and Paul’s solo releases. I think the duo individually will benefit from these criticisms IF they pay attention to the feedback.

    These songs are not special to me could have done better after all ” Paul is the better singer”. When I have Davido, wizkid and kiss Daniel? Abeg make una leave me bare..kinda like cool it down sha but guys you both need to work harder, change style and be creative make good use of the criticisms and stop hating each other

    Peter and Paul need to both work on the craft as solo artist. life has taught me no one is useless. that jobless bro we de chop your food for free, also runs errands for you that allows you focus getting enough food for both of you. I think they are both in a hurry to prove point and their handlers are enablers of this unhealthy competition. every musician get time and season Psquare time done pass. They should have just done a massive world tour, make their money and leave when the ovation is loudest. Wo Kiss Daniel ti take over.

    I would gladly dance to ‘Nkenji Keke’ at my next wedding and I’m not even Igbo. I love it. Well done Paul!

    I haven’t listened to ‘Cool it down’ but I’m not comparing one to another. The sky is big enough for all of us to fly!
