I had the pleasure in choosing to review one of my favorites, Minz! Damilola Aminu aka Minz, is a recording artist, singer/songwriter from Lagos, Nigeria and producer that produced one of his recent songs “Story”, which has been by far, one of my favorite Afrobeats type of songs. A fun fact about Minz is a recent graduate of International Law from Babcock University but decided to pursue his dream of making music in 2016 and as we can see, has definitely started to pay off. Minz also refers himself as “fireboy” or says the phrase “minzu lode” in all of his songs, which is a cool indicator when listening to a song that it’s him singing it. Once I heard “Story”, I automatically downloaded and kept it on repeat because the beat is that good! Although the song contains some lyrics that I don’t understand, I get the gist of it, which is about him singing to a women he will do anything in the world for and professing his potential love for her. Other than the lyrics, this is definitely the type of song where your body will move without you even knowing because of how smooth the beat is. Minz also has other work out like one of his other popular songs called “Aunty Paticia” produced by Mowizzy and Minz himself, which is another song I suggest to listen to for anyone into Afrobeats music. It will move you (literally)! I highly recommend everyone, even if you don’t usually listen to Afrobeats, to take a listen to “Story” by Minz and you will not regret it. I’m sure you will keep the song on repeat too! Check them out and happy listening!
