GenreAfropop, RnB

Rating: 4 out of 5.


The Lagos-born artist released his first body of work in 5 years last Friday and it has been the talk of the town.

Zarion Uti is no novice in the Music game. Moving to the US at the age of 18 came with it’s challenges but it also saw the dynamic artist experience a sublime breakthrough on his musical journey.

Headlining multiple shows across the United states. Opened for mega stars including Reekado Banks, Mayorkun and Grammy award winning act, Burna Boy.

That goes without mentioning an accumulation of over 5 MILLION streams at a tender age of 23. Zarion Uti is currently one of the most prolific and recognized Nigerian acts in the diaspora. One you should get familiar with if you weren’t already.

Mr Arahya — An 8-track EP offering from Zarion Uti could be an amazing place to start from to get familiar.

A project that took multiple years to cook and with the sole aim of Zarion being at his expressive best in showing forth what it looks like seeing life through his eyes. Through the eyes of the multi-talented Zarion Uti.

It has been a long time coming but boy did he outdo himself on this body of work. An EP next to impeccable with an entrapping theme feel.

Every single track brings something unique on this tape. One could take this to mean Zarion was experimenting but he wasn’t. He was a master on dynamism at work.

Pay for the Pain passes as a perfect starter as the tape opens with the well-produced mid-tempo track. Zarion’s ability to mix with the proper guest feature is just another one of his many abilities. Minz ate Proud up as they both looked unto a Faaji-filled future.

It was all mid-tempo until track 3 “Tale Bana” which was also the tape’s lead single. This is one to command the dancing shoes as the Banger has already accumulated over 10,000 streams on Audiomack alone.

Showtime has been a fan favorite not just because of the smoothness of the beat and the orgasmic feeling it delivers to the ears but particularly Azanti’s performance on the feature. Top-Level stuff.

The melodies are abundant and overflowing on Mr Arahya. What’s Gwanin soft bass fused with the guitars deliver a beautiful mid-tempo tune. A love song and more. Zarion tees up Maison2500 and $odaman on the trap-infused Nobody. The tape closes with Zarion needing a New Heart and he’s got A.Beeb with him on this one.

Endless Melodies. Smooth production. Amazing Delivery. Zarion Uti delivers all on this 10/10 tape.
