Pause – King Gaya Ft Kordys (Prod by Kordys & Oshinowo Olasubomi)
Pause is a great song for the youngsters from King Gaya featuring Kordys. A sweet mix of Afropop and hiphop with a little bit of Jamaican vibe to spice it up.
The message is very clear, the girl and the guy are on the same page with their body language. He is willing to give her what she wants from him.
Lyrics are sick and on point. You know, generally, there is this extra excitement when its the girl who is doing the asking ( bad girl). Although, verse one didn’t really do it for me, the Savior was the little addition of the Yoruba line which works any day, anytime. Indigenous lines always work the magic. My favorite part was the second verse. Very impressive word play and sick lines…..the verse was simply #madverse.
It was really recommendable to notice that no female vocal was used, which gave the message a good balance.The back up emphasis on the “bad girl” and “pause was really nice. Plus, there is this good vocal that’s echoing in the background and its deliberately mostly inaudible.

The beats is great. The sweet mix of Afro-pop and hip-hop, the constant single keyboard note beeping throughout the song is really tight. Beats like this would really need some serious caressing and this dude didn’t disappoint *winks*
Generally, Pause is on point. Crazy beats, lyrics on point, delivery on point. Thumbs up mister producer.
