Banky W – “Made For You”

Oh holy shiiiii!!!… Banky W is singing again!
You know, this I am not even a rapper thing was one shot that really worked well for Mr W. He made us miss his velvety tenor so much that some of us stopped tripping over the fact that he could hold his own on 16 bars by managing to stay composed with an arrangement of words (sometimes, badass lines actually) spun over these bars. We’d started to hate it. Really hate it. So when that Chidinma collaboration surfaced, it was like heaven had answered our prayers for the R&B roller to start singing again. I humbly bowed in obeisance of this ever faithful and unchanging God who made this happen.
Not only am I a fan of reggae and Banky W and Masterkraft, these three favourites in my life just had to come together all at once to give a treaty that has been waited for almost all of time. Made For You was the end result of these musical factors reacting together – Suka Sounds being the catalyst in the mix (Chemistry students will understand this). Banky sanged the hell outta this song like he had been starved of his vocal genius for sometime now. I can hear all the parts coming together; the floor tomb kicking hard and intermittently, the buzzing sounds of the bass strings, the airy percussion, Banky W expending vocal effort (he ran marathon adlibs on alternating octaves), how the lyrics are in perfect sync like a poetic piece and how all the melodies from each musical part harmonize into one very beautiful love symphony.
At first listen, I was like how dare Masterkraft sample a sound off one of Flavour’s reggae tracks but I’m glad to finally realize that I was wrong. This is entirely new, it’s different, and it reminds me why I shouldn’t ever dare think of stunting on Mr W, especially with that voice. Moreso, the music offering couldn’t have come at a better timed venture – Valentine!
