After the furore the FOKN Bois caused with their track ‘Thank God We Are Not A Nigerians’ some may have thought that they would tone down their lyrics and subject matter. If you were one of those people, please be informed that you were greatly mistaken!
All 18 tracks on’FOKN wit Ewe’ are packed with so much humour, wit and political incorrectness that it seems ‘Thank God We Are Not A Nigerians’ is possibly one of the least offensive songs on the album.
The album’s production is flawless. Ranging from clear hip hop influences on ‘Strong Homosexual Guys’ to a more modern avant garde R’N’B feel, reminiscent of The Weeknd’s style on tracks like ‘Sexin Islamic Girls’ this album is in true FOKN Bois style musically groundbreaking. They continuously innovate when it comes to lyrics, concepts and music. Their sound is most definitely unique and if any artists are going to be the masterminds of a new genre of African music, these two are just the men for the job.
Lyrical content wise it is most definitely original. The skits tell outlandish stories and at times as a listener you will begin to wonder how it was they even thought up these shocking tales, though at other times you’ll be left in awe of the profoundly graphic imagery their words are able to conjure up in your mind.
The FOKN Bois album is most definitely worth a listen. However it is NOT for the faint hearted. It should probably come with a warning a little something like this. ‘If you are not in posession of a sense of humour and/ or cannot process dark and deeply cutting jokes do not attempt to listen‘.
Anti everything from homosexuality to skin bleaching it really is not to be listened to if you are easily offended. Fokn wit Ewe is an hour of pure discrimination and ridiculously raw humour, but at least it can be said that the FOKN Bois do not discriminate in who they discriminate against!
