Why DenG, Ericgeso, Christoph and Soul Fresh Are Not Making Hits Anymore

first_imgA little while back, DenG, Ericgeso, Christoph and Soul Fresh, just to name a few artistes, were headliners rocking whole towns and cities with their music.As their songs rocked Liberia day and night, their fan bases accordingly extended outside of Monrovia.This extension played a critical role in their rise to local superstardom, which can also be attributed to their conscious lyrics and their abilities to tap into their fans’ musical tastes and desires.From DenG’s ‘Kemah,’ to Ericgeso’s ‘Go Home,’ Christoph ‘Hold Your Polaruh,’ to Soul Fresh’s ‘Drop It and Wrap It,’ these artists rocked the nation like wildfire, making them ‘the people’s choice.’However, in recent times, these guys seem to be slipping, despite releasing quality singles that can’t seem to go pass a month after their release dates to just fizzle.Take DenG, for example. From ‘Make Dem Talk’ to ‘Some Done Some Na Done,’ it now appears that the top notch artist has lost his lyrical prowess. The two singles’ ‘hot lifespan’ didn’t go past a month after their release dates, maybe owing to the fact that they have a similar message to his first hit single ‘They Vex,’ without being as catchy.Both songs fell short of tapping into his fans’ expectations, and the lyrics appear to lack that power that could speak directly to the soul.For Ericgeso, who came to into the limelight about two years ago through the club banger ‘No Spacing,’ he is now struggling to maintain his momentum. Once regarded for his lyrical deftness, he fell short of such an appraisal in the singles ‘Resurrect’ and ‘Fall Down and Die,’   which messages were out of touch.In addition, his lyrics are neither on point nor touching.Now, Christoph, arguably the best rapper right now, is struggling to hold on to his spot despite releasing about four singles in sequence this year, which has not gone too far. The songs appear now to just be dying down.From ‘Marry Me,’ ‘Handbag,’ ‘Hipco 101,’ and ‘Hipco 102’ the lyrics appear to be disjointed, with similar rhyme patterns and wordings, and the messages just off track.Lastly, the group Soul Fresh, onetime best rap group in the country, is not doing well these days. This is evidenced by the group’s two singles ‘Red Bank’ and ‘Sweet, Sweet, Bad, Bad Dance,’ which lyrics are replicas of ‘Red Bank,’ with a similar message to ‘Drop it and Wrap It.’Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement – DenG, Ericgeso, Shinning Man and JB of the group Soul Fresh and Christophlast_img read more

Here he gives his opinion….The buzz around FitHub’s new F60 class was too hard to ignore. Prior to commencing the F-60 classes, I was very apprehensive, experiencing anxiety of the unknown.As I attended my first class, my initial thoughts were of the excellent, fully equipped premises.It was great to see people of different ages, gender and fitness backgrounds attending the class, truly all inclusive.The great promotional offer of “bring a friend for free” introductory offer ensured a full class.As the class started our F-60 instructors Garvin and Bazza gathered us together. Straight away you were blown away by their positivity and enthusiasm. Creating a fun, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. That initial anxiety was gone!The guys demonstrated clear visual and verbal instructions, ensuring our safety and familiarising us with each work station. Advertisement The clock starts, the music is on and we’re off. Each work station challenged us in a variety of different ways both physically and mentally. No matter your fitness level, big, small, young or old the FitHub guys had a plan for you.As we moved through the stations, Garvin and Bazza surveyed the room providing encouragement and instruction when needed.The music stops. Everyone gulps for air, water or a wall to lean on. As I look around everyone is still smiling though. An intense workout!!It’s early days but I feel my cardio endurance increasing, gains in physical strength and becoming mentally strong as each challenge is completed. These are some of the benefits I experienced following my week of F60 classes.The F60 class really pushed me to my limits. The intensity and unique F60 programme will ensure each of us reach our fitness and health goals. And you’re sure to make a few friends along the way!!I look forward to my next F60 class and improving my health and well-being in the weeks and months ahead.
