Tracks And Features

The EP’s first track, “Holy Afro,” finds Frank settling into a soothing afro vibe as he expresses his gratitude to God and gives the supreme being all the credit. The song is a jivey opener and has a catchy vibe. Smooth and superb backup vocals are interspersed throughout the song. These backup vocals add depth and richness to the track, enhancing the listening experience. With its infectious rhythm and uplifting lyrics, “Holy Afro” sets the tone for the rest of the EP, promising a captivating musical journey.

The themes of blessings, gratitude, and reverence to the supreme being fill most of the lyrics in the following song, “Hallelujah Afro,” which picks up where the first track leaves off. The background choir helps the chorus and hook of this song, which is catchy and beautifully sung, to make the Hallelujah chant and praise ring out melodically. The song showcases a fusion of African and gospel music, creating a vibrant and uplifting atmosphere. The powerful vocals and harmonies, combined with the energetic instrumentation, further amplify the sense of joy and celebration in “Hallelujah Afro.” As the lyrics express deep appreciation and devotion, listeners are immersed in a spiritual experience that resonates with their souls.

The same vibey beats, catchy lyrics, melodic harmonies, and a strong message that God has been good to him and deserves worship are present in “Worship Afro.” As the soloist offers his God praise and worship, the chorus combines several indigenous languages of Nigeria. This infusion of diverse languages adds a unique cultural richness to the song, creating a truly immersive and inclusive worship experience. It showcases the beauty of Nigeria’s linguistic diversity and emphasizes the universal nature of worship, transcending barriers and bringing people together to celebrate God’s goodness.

Frank sings in “Nothing Is Impossible Afro” that nothing is beyond what God can do for him, no matter how unworthy he is. He acknowledges that because God is omnipotent, he is a wonder and that nothing is beyond his power to accomplish. In regards to him, he tells his heart to have faith that God will always be on time.

“Selense,” the EP’s final track and a standout, opens with a vocalization that sounds like a mass choir. It aims to strengthen the people’s faith by directing them to seek God as their protector and mediator against the devil’s mischief. The song is incredible and embodies the album’s predominant chilly afro vibe. With its infectious rhythm and soulful lyrics, “Selense” creates an uplifting atmosphere that resonates with listeners. The artist’s powerful vocals effortlessly convey a message of hope and resilience, making it a perfect conclusion to the EP’s immersive musical journey.
