Veteran rapper The Bossman, a.k.a Mr Oga, is back from a productive hiatus with a brand new industry-strength release tagged “TGFF”, which stands for “Thank God For Friday”. This explosive set piece combines a club savvy rhythm section with cool Afro-beat chords and conscious-type lyricism to create a compelling, cosmopolitan 2012-compatible groove with a sprinkling of the futuristic. With a lush blend of rapping and sung harmonies and a soundtrack painstakingly crafted by producer and medical doctor Dr Sankty [of 17-17 AudioLaB], The Bossman cleverly illustrates and captures the emotional relief of the average working class Nigerian on a friday, the last day of the working week, giving listeners a truly stress-dissolving cruise experience that is totally at home in car stereos during rush-hour traffic. This joint is totally worth every second of its running time!
