I DEY CONSIDER – A NIB OF SEAN DAMPTE’S APPROACH IN HIS 2023 SOJOURN
‘I Dey Consider’ is released at a time when there is so much speculation, propaganda, conspiracy theory, forecasted events, policy, unsettling thoughts, and buzz flying in the air.
In this overtly saturated ball of musicians, Sean Dampte is one to reckon with for consciously leaving an imprint of diligence, consistency, and hard work. As the game is known to glorify those with whom it aligns, Sean dares to set on a different path this year with this new single, I Dey Consider. We would recall that we’ve spent barely a week in the new year when he kicked right in with his first-ever live concert in Nigeria. That was the move to prepare us for his experimental approach in 2023 after we’d gotten used to his smooth shuttle between London and Lagos — a whole lifestyle experience that yielded his previous body of work.
In trailing a new lane that will make both a creative and commercial difference for the singer this year, Sean Dampte is not deviating from his roots in easy music and the fusion of Afro; he has just unlocked another level of flexibility that he is exploring at his full capacity, and this goes on to suffice as proof of his being versatile.
‘I Dey Consider’ is released at a time when there is so much speculation, propaganda, conspiracy theory, forecasted events, policy, unsettling thoughts, and buzz flying in the air. The track speaks the minds of everyone who, discreetly or openly, has a course to rethink their decision. It’s been a trend on Twitter in which netzines made requests, expressed their wishes, relayed their plans, or simply conveyed what’s going on in their minds. We’ve had to read tweets like ‘#iDeyConsider to japa from the country,” which means I am considering relocating from this country.
This has so far contained the anticipation for the hit Afrobeat song. Sean is not only setting the tide for himself with his new single but for his listeners, who will bear the concerns raised about poverty alleviation and a better life in his true words.
As it is with every Sean Dampte record, I Dey Consider is also an experience you shouldn’t miss.
I Dey Consider is a purposeful trendy song to challenge the social status and standard of living of the masses, especially in Nigeria. The track is far-reaching in the possible thoughts of an average young man who works hard to achieve everything he desires. Track distinguished with different ranges of kicks making a perfect alignment of Afrobeats and elements of Amapiano.
An experimental sound according to the catalog of the singer but a clearly composed piece for listening pleasure. The kind of music that exceeds its melody into a strong pop-culture trend on social media with the title emerging as a catchy phrase to convey different thoughts, “#iDeyConsider.”
Absolutely danceable, fit for party scenes, possessing a viral effect and conscious enough to personally check one’s efforts and decisions.
