Rebirth introduces you to one of the most known unknowns in the naija music industry.jahbless has been around for a long time and is definitely not a newbie as one might think.for his debut album on yes records,he enlists reminisce,seriki,G dog,SV,durella,banky w,pype,ID cabasa & lord of ajasa.on the 14 track album,production is handled by SAS and labelmate/friend ID cabasa.

Jahbless jumpstarts the album with good morning,which is more like the intro.everything is a smooth ride from there on with songs like the id cabasa produced "street rules" and "di dada" where he features reminisce until you hit speed bumps like the durella assisted "kaka koon" which somehow manages to be boring."yiwo saun" steadies things a little bit and banky w lends him a helping hand on "the one",but he fails miserably at his attempt at a club banger on "rock the party".

The album ends on on a great note as he kicks into overdrive on tracks like "oni temi",the creative & inspirational "ur time",the mellow "hang over" with id cabasa and "jooor" with lord of ajasa.even though his name sounds like that of a reggae artiste,jahbless is not one and there are no reggae influences on this album.infact he is to naija R&B what lord of ajasa & da grin are to naija rap.

Rebirth is a solid effort as jahbless's potential,creativity & talent is there for all to see.yes records clearly made a good choice in signing him.the only notable flaw or disadvantage on this album is the language as majority of the tracks are in yoruba.every other thing is on point from the delivery to the production.


PLAY-oni temi,street rules,jooor,hang over,the one
SKIP-kaka koon,rock the party
