The year has so far been a feature of the regular, albeit, nonchalant back and forth of artistes trying to out do each other through social media.

So much is this desire that the music consumer has shifted from looking for original music pieces to listen to, to now looking ahead to petty feuds to further stoke more flame.

We needed a break from all of this nonsense and that excitedly, is what Lamisi’s ‘Brighter Side‘ album does without much stress.

Attention grabbing, vocal poignancy exploding with sweet layers of musical instruments, the 2019 album by Lamisi is one that you should not only listen to in these times of quality music starvation, but one that you should also own to evidently show others where you were when Lamisi finally broke free and let loose her immense talent.

Not a lot is mentioned of the female artist in the our Ghanaian music industry.

Heck!, not a lot are spoken and written of artistes who are genuinely giving us timeless works. But if you find yourself reading this, read it aloud The Brighter Side album will coerce you into becoming a Lamisi “Stan”.

You might doubt the last sentence understandably but when you press that play button, you will get to full immerse yourself into that the appreciativeness that it fully deserves starting from track 1.

‘Karika Tanka’ is a blend of vintages 1990’s African lore music backed by locally brewed instruments giving off melodies that will hook you on.

Reminiscent of an Angelique Kidjo piece, ‘Karika Tanka’ serves its most important purpose perfectly by getting your attention for the songs to come next.

Now, read this well, don’t be swayed into thinking that the Brighter Side album wont be filled with diverse songs like most recent Ghanaian album do because it actually is! On ‘Oh Me’, Lamisi bares it all in an emotional song whiles leaving an audible mark with her unique vocal performance. Such is her performance!!!

Six songs into the ‘Brighter Side’ album and one point is evidently visible, Lamisi has given us her all.

You might rightly argue about that with how average ‘The Way You Control’ sounds when compared to the previous songs but on ‘First Fool’, ‘Munafiki’ and ‘Zahanga(Dreams)’ Lamisi’s versatile story telling skills backed by a string of great instrumentation totally make this album the must listen to that it should be.

Finally we get to the titular track, Brighter Side, in 7th position.

‘Brighter Side’ beams with the luminesce that it carries in its name with a subtle touch of trumpets complimenting Lamisi’s voice and lyrics.

Coupled with a catchy hook and unmissable adlips, ‘Brighter Side’ perfectly deserves to be titled so. This is the song off the album that deserves the early morning treatment.

You put on replay and forget it is the same song repeating it self whiles enjoying it. It is that good!

The rhythms of the drums bellowing out sweet sounds of perfection make the 9th track, ‘Fama Me’ a standout on the album.

Vividly with 3 more songs to go, you might still be surprised that there is no glaring negative critique on one song on the album. You might be thinking if this is real, yes it is!

To put ‘Take It’, ‘Strawberry’ and ‘Kuul Ronnings’ into writing would just be a case of copy and paste of the earlier reactions to songs already listened to.

To say Lamisi has indeed given off her best with this album will be an understatement when you finally finish the whole album.

The ‘Brighter Side’ album should not only be on the shelves and playlists of people, but it should also be played on radio to prove that yes, we still can make good music effortlessly.
