I just heard the recent Ego album, “Firsteps” and I thought it was awesome! I have always thought she has got a beautiful voice right from her collabo days with Lagbaja. The CD features soulful songs with even a track that was sort of a modified version of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s “Palaver”. There were also a few gospel-oriented tracks. It was produced by Cobhams Asuquo. I mean what more can I say….. My faves though were “Bia nulu”, “Fall in Love” and “I believe”. Bia nulu is an Ibo spiritual folklore song that was originally sung by Onyeka Onwenu yeeaaars ago. But what Ego did to the song was beyond amazing. Onyeka Onwenu would be proud in my opinion. I heard the song, and I updated my bbm status and said the song just makes me wanna be held and slow- danced with, haha. But really, it's such a soothing song. I encourage you to get the album if you can will you?


If you have listened to the album what do you think? Also if you can send the lyrics and possibly, an English translation in the comments below, it would be much appreciated!
