“Everything go happen, my brother/ Time would tell my brother,” the opener to Don’t Bother, the first record off Ajimovoix’s just-released Border To Border EP, hits you with a solemn and reflective tempo. Over the gentle saxophone melody and slow percussion in Don’t Bother, Ajimovoix, real name Adewale Oguntade, sets the tone for the record with his intimate and motivational lyricism.

For the music producer popular for his Focus Dance Beat, which gripped the Nigerian entertainment scene last year, Ajimovoix attempts to take his ghetto gospel to more urban climes with this emo Rnb record. With Border To Border, the producer also throws on his singing hat, as he delves into intimate and relatable stories about hard work, hustle and survival.

Woven with in native Yoruba language, alongside a sprinkle of English language, Ajimovoix bares his vulnerability on this record. He sings out his heart within the first four songs in the 5-tracker, before closing the record with an entirely upbeat and energetic dance instrumental, which is also the only record where he doesn’t sing.

“My plan is to create music that brings fun and happiness to everyone, from music fans to even music artistes. Recently, I achieved this with the Focus Dance Beat, but now with my record I can show the world this side to me,” he tells Weekend Beats.

By contemporary music standards, Border To Border, which is out on digital stores, is a wholesome record, with enough pep-talk and dance groove to be a mood-spinner for everyone.
