Did Fireboy Make Reekado Banks’ “Ozumba Mbadiwe” Better Or Is The Remix Useless?

Did Fireboy Make Reekado Banks’ “Ozumba Mbadiwe” Better Or Is The Remix Useless? 

Reekado Banks got a good hit in “Ozumba Mbadiwe” and it might be quite a while before he gets another one like that, however hard he tries.

So it’s almost a no-brainer that he should try to milk the song. That is, if there’s anything left to do with a song like that, anyway, then he should totally be doing it. Because what else would he do?

But “Ozumba Mbadiwe” is a good song on its own, and it has done very well on a national scale that if a remix is to be expected, then it should be something that’s on a more international scale. Like the way “Peru” was treated for a remix, for example.

A remix with Fireboy, though, now that’s a doubtful one. What’s the goal, what are they trying to accomplish with this one? The idea sounds ridiculous and begs a lot of questions. But there is almost no rationale that would make it seem pretty okay to do something like that.

So I guess, in judging something like this, we are going to have to rely on how the song came out, and if the Fireboy input ultimately makes something better out of a rather already good hit.

There’s not a lot to be said about the “Ozumba Mbadiwe” song that hasn’t already been said in the past months. For example, I could say P.priime did a wonderful job on this one. But we already know that and it has been established.

Also, Reekado’s composition (on the original, I mean) was beautifully created and the arrangement of the song is quite good. Already there’s not much a guy like Fireboy could come and do on a track like that.

This remix of “Ozumba Mbadiwe” features the main parts of the previous version and a Fireboy verse that, well, let’s just say, could totally bang in another song that’s fast-paced and heavier than this.

Fireboy’s verse sounds like something that wasn’t premeditated, like a freestyle for some cover of some sort. Weird considering how hard that jam is. Fireboy just didn’t fit. The song is more laid-back than Fireboy was willing to accept apparently, so he dropped a verse that’s just a lot of words and is hard to sing.

I didn’t think Fireboy could ruin a song like this, but let’s be honest, that’s exactly what he did. First, the decision to bring Fireboy on didn’t make any sense. And, on top of that, Fireboy couldn’t really make the song better. Not all song needs a remix.
