When I heard the story of Jaredo leaving SOG to an International Record Label in the United Kingdom, it wasn’t a tussle for me to dictate that it was just a publicity stunt, a pure rumor that couldn’t hold our hearts for long because we know that King Jafar is not ready to let Jaredo go since it’s about time he reaps all that he has invested Into the Fast rising Afro pop star. If it wasn’t a rumor then Jaredo should be in the UK by now, and as we know Pictures don’t lie, but as we speak we don’t even have a visual prove of his trip. Jaredo just got ripe for the Music industry the moment he dropped his Huge Collaboration with Ghanaian Hit maker Kuami Eugene. I am not saying Jaredo hasn’t impressed with his previous Bangers like “Nobody” and “Wait”, but “Your Waist” is a total summary of how talented he is, how much he has grown over time, and how much he is going to achieve in the future. “Your Waist” is a graduation for Jaredo, Kuami Eugene didn’t have it easy on that song because Jaredo handled every bit of that song as a Pro! Jaja’s Lyrics were soaked in real emotions, he didn’t feel because Kuami is regarded as a big fish so he shouldn’t swim in the same waters. Jaredo’s graduation in the Music industry has finally brought this argument that’s often been made in close doors outside for everyone to have their say.
On a normal day we all know Jaredo is a junior brother to the Commander In Chief CIC but today is different, Jaredo has finally worked so hard to the extent that his head has gone beyond the shoulders of his mentor, now they can go head 2 head. Which Song would you call a greater Ghana/Liberia Collaboration between Jaredo’s “Your Waist” featuring Kuami Eugene and CIC’s “The One” featuring Mzvee? CIC has been very Constant unlike many artists that would hit the limelight and before you know it, they get carried away by the fame and are no where to be found. ” The One” isn’t CIC’s first Collaboration with a Ghanaian music star, his hit song “Hello” with Rapper Joey B, and also on his unreleased album 1994 he has a track featuring Medikal. CIC’s “The One” is a perfect wedding song, and MzVee unlike Kuami Eugene on “Your Waist”, went heart to heart with Cralorboi to the point that you can even create a story that both of them are in a love affair and no one will dispute that fact because the synergy of both artists was straight made in heaven. The production of both songs can’t be flawed except from when ” Your Waist” which was Produced by Kuami Eugene had a poorly mastered version that was released by SOG but after noticing the error Kuami quickly rectified his mistakes and Jaredo’s team dropped the better version of the song.”The One” Production is a throwback to when Kizzy W and CIC were 5 and 6 under the same label, Didn’t you enjoy the Chemistry between Kizzy W and CIC? With the way Kizzy W made the beat with every piece of his soul, you would feel that it was a Collaboration of three people: CIC, Mzvee and Kizzy W.
To conclude, I will say that Jaredo and CIC didn’t out do each other, it is a draw, fifty fifty, but if I am to compare the Ghanaian’s they both featured, then I will openly tell you that Mzvee qualified “The One” to be a greater Ghanaian/Liberian Collaboration than the efforts exercised by Kuami Eugene on Jaredo’s “Your Waist”.
