Afropop legend Iyanya is back with a new tune ‘Sinner’ featuring BNXN.
He feels and sounds different in this new song. Iyanya employs a mid-tempo with calculated beats and relatively resounding percussion.
In terms of vocals, you can pick his signature vocals as he follows through with ‘Sinner’ lyrics.
BNXN brings the traditional ‘Buju’ charm that he is known for in this song with an abject melancholy voice that spices up the whole record.
The whole song has a Nigerian touch with a fair share of bubbly, yet melancholic vocal output.
‘Sinner’ is his second project for 2023 following the release of ‘One Side’ remix featuring Mayorkun and Tekno.
The remix produced by Shugavybz, came with a renewed appeal by the featured musicians.
Iyanya confessed in December 2022 that ‘Iyanya’ opened doors for him which he never thought he would get to.
Inspired by this, the ‘Kukere’ hitmaker brought out Mayorkun's outstanding melodic and soft vocals in the second verse of the remix. His vocal range is evident in this song, which is delivered with enthusiasm and vigour.
Tekno then enters with his distinctive falsetto. He perfectly pitches the third verse with a laid-back vibe, creating an excellent harmony of a high and medium approach in such a sound.
Tekno has already created the ideal atmosphere for listening to the song before Iyanya enters with his ""One Side"" chorus. It has a very easygoing flow and is quite relaxed.
With ‘Sinner’, Iyanya did equally well.
