What is better than being a popular DJ and dropping a fourth album? It is, having access to all the popular arts, around. Spinall wanted something short,unique and that will also make sense and“Iyanu” perfectly fitted the description.

With DavidoWizkidKizz DanielBurna BoyTekno and more featured on the album, what else does DJ Spinall need to make the album a hit?

Stamina (Ft. Ceeza, C Natty)

Once you push play on the Afrobeat-heavy “Stamina” which features StarBoyCeeza, and Tribe II artiste, C Natty, two things come to your head.

One is, “this is a banger,” while that is still in your head, you hear shabbalistica, and you think Killertunes is mad!

C Natty be sounding like Wizkid, back in ’09, tho. Ceeza, too. Spinall wants ’em Wiz clones!

Can’t Help Myself (Ft. Wurld)

Having this guy, Wurld on a song means you’re in for some foreign joint. And that’s exactly what Top Boy got here.

A funky afro-EDM instrumental, by the way. Wurld‘s voice is really soothing. I can’t help myself, either.

Serious (Ft. Burna Boy)

This one serious. Burna Boy in with the energy. Talking about when he recorded Gba Gbe E.

“Burna, DJ Spinall dangerous, ain’t nobody come close to us.” The trap interlude issa killer!

Baby Girl (Ft. Tekno)

First dancehall vibe on the album. It’s a real Tekno-type beat, reminiscent of songs like “GO” and “Samantha.”

“When you push it, girl your body reboot it,” Tekno is something else, lyrically.

No Wo (Ft. Wizkid)

Almost feels like you’ve not heard it before, playing it on this album. Killertunesis crazy, afterall.

The tempo of the album has increased, and it’s getting ‘dancehall-sy’ already. “No Wo” is a jam, no wonder it was a big hit.

Try For You (Ft. Nonso Amadi)

Coming in at just 02:33, it’s the shortest song on “Iyanu” A party jam fromNonso? OK, let’s bang this. A song for the moonlit Friday nights.

Your DJ (Ft. Davido)

It’s still pon pon. Spinall actually got OBO on a jam even though it wasn’t too lyrical due to Davido’s shouting

Baba (Ft. Kizz Daniel)

A pre-released single. May turn out to be the biggest single from the album, tho.  Sheybi you want banger to banger? Spinall na ogbologbo!

Omoge (Ft. Dotman)

Dotman has really earned himself a top spot in this crowded industry. DJ Spinall now features him.

Omoge” is cool, and ending the album with it is great. Dotman did a great job, alongside Ckay.

REVIEW; With a general review we say DJ Spinall completely delivered with this masterclass album and should be among the best of this year’s Nigerian albums.

RATING; Overall we are rating this song 7/10.
