Actualité - JOVI RELEASES NEW ALBUM "MBOKO GOD"
Jovi releases his highly anticipated second album, Mboko God. The Cameroonian rapper has created a musical journey that transcends cultural, linguistic, and geographical boundaries. Mboko God is a hip hop album full of influences from around the continent and takes listeners into unknown territory. Produced by Le Monstre, the multi-layered album effortlessly fuses Cameroonian rhythms, languages, and harmonies with musical influences from regions throughout the country. From the very first song, the beautiful "Mboko God - Positioning", with Ngemba and Nliimbom dialects deep with meaning finished with an epic, unexpected trap flow by Jovi, it's clear that the album is bringing forth a new genre of hip hop. The second song, "Nyongo Money", continues with crunchy, electronic shakers, Congolese Soukous chanting, and lyrics that take the listener back in time "before calendar man bi di look na moon/sun for morning time no dey like sun for afternoon." In many ways the Mboko God album gives a feel of the past, present, and future of Africa. The chanting, dialects, and rhythms laced throughout Mboko God celebrate African sound and tradition and elevate it to the foundation of the album. The trap-inspired bass, snares, and lyrical flows in songs like "Top Level" and "Et P8 Koi" draw heavily on inspiration from the popular trap movement throughout the U.S., while the makossa guitar in songs like "Comme Moundi" and "Jungle Book", and the bikutsi flavored "CASH" open listeners up to the modern day musical vibe of Cameroon. A futuristic texture permeates the album with electronic, metallic, and industrial noises that evolve into melodies on songs like "B.A.S.T.A.R.D", "Mboko God - Status" and "Mboko God - Reality."
