“Even if he decides to go into reggae, it also has the same restricted beats and sound effect. “Then listening closely to the beats he uses, they are quite similar, just like a tweak which is same as Lucky Dube’s in the days.”

“In fact, he should think of other ways to make his songs more entertaining to his fans.” Emmanuel Alonge, an independent Music Director in Abuja said he loves Gold’s songs, adding that he had “clean lyrical lines.’’ According to Alonge, his songs, beats are entertaining and appeals to his fans anytime.
