After listening & watching the visuals to Jaywon’s award-winning song “This Year” released in 2013 and Zlatan Ibile’s trending single “This year”.
I kinda feel like Jaywon is an inspiration to Zlatan Ibile newly released single titled “This Year”.
Tho Jaywon’s “This Year” might be a slow tempo tune, while Zlatan Ibile’s “This year” is quite up-tempo; the fact remains that from the lyrical contents, progression, and the message in both songs has a lot of similarity and duplicates.
Further; The video concept, interpretation , set and costuming don’t really have a lot of differences with both visuals having narrative dramas.
Moreover, Jaywon’s “This year” song & Zlatan IBile’s version are both good sounds with a lot in common. It feels great to see the new kids on the block sampling some of the afro-pop / afro-highlife veterans who have paved way for the Nigerian music industry between the duration of a decade(10years) & above.
In Conclusion, The Nigerian music scene is getting bigger everyday and hence the new kids on the block needs to pay the due respect to the veterans.
