P.V.O.O resurrects in scam, 20 years after
The voice is typical of the late afrobeat maestro, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. Not forgetting the radicalism and militancy in Fela’s voice. Interestingly, it is not that of Fela, but Patrick Osagie Osakwe, who goes by the moniker, P.V.O Lala. He just made a return to the music scene after 20 years. He has rejigged his beats to something refreshingly different in form.
Scam, his latest single, is an afro pop genre try out delivered in unique passion solely his geared towards alerting the masses, who have always fallen a prey of unending promises and fail of the politicians.
The grey bearded act maintained that with this militant form, “I have undoubtedly gotten to the unsuspecting masses, especially parents who may have been defrauded severally by the politicians now ready to defraud their children too. Enough of the politicians fooling the masses that is why I am alerting and warning parents to make sure they do not scam their children during this elections in some states.”
He distanced himself as the possible successor to the late Abami Eda, because he plays afro pop unlike him who plays real afro beat.
Aside from that, “ His shoes are too big for anybody to step into (including his children) even 20 years after his death,” he said.
With this titillating experiment P.V.O Lala stands a chance of getting national and international attention, and maybe, acceptance too.
