Renowned soul singer, songwriter, and performed, Timi Dakolo drops a new album titled “The Chorus Leader”.
If sunlight could manifest as music it would probably sound like Timi Dakolo‘s third album, “The Chorus Leader“.
Timi Dakolo‘s latest offering invokes a rapturous spirit of love and joy set to beats precision-engineered to uplift even the most dour of moods. True to the title, Dakolo‘s powerfully husky tone is capable of marshalling his lush choir of backing vocals into amplifying the maximum-watt energy of “Happy Fellows” and
“Premium Enjoyment“, or steering them into awed reverence on the home pride anthem,
“Men of the South“. Back-to-back collaborations with some of Nigeria’s premier artists lend gravitas to the easy, midtempo groove of “Na so E Be“-which plays host to reggae and dancehall icon Patoranking‘s laidback confidence–while
“This Woman” twinkles with contributions from a veritable constellation of stars, including legendary producer Cobhams Asuquo. Dakolo shifts genres with ease, alternating soul and highlife with finger-snapping swing, Afrobeats and smooth R&B influences, highlighting his natural versatility as an artist. Sophisticated, perspicacious and radiating with joe de vivre, “The Chorus Leader” is a dazzling showcase for Dakolo‘s remarkable talent.
