The songs on Skalesâs Sweet Distractions fit into three broad categories: revived rapper credentials; animated relationship travails; and the contemporary zest of South Africaâs amapiano. Better known as a crooner, Skales beginnings as a rapper dictate proceedings on âAs Alwaysâ, âKatapotâ and on album opener âHope, Freedom and Loveâ, on which he recounts his motherâs succumbing to a stroke, as well as career slights, drug use, relationship strife and money worries: âIt still hurts, I hate the world so much man/Thank God I donât own no nukeâ.

Over woozy synths, emphatic kick drums and roving pianos, Skales finds good synergy âPants on Fireâ with fellow Nigerian artist Blaqbonez who, like himself, started out as a rapper, but later embraced the melodious advantage of his singing voice. âHeart in a casket/I’m done with that love shitâ sings Blaqbonez with steely resolve to repair a deep hurt.

On more than one occasion, Skales proves to be a dab hand at amapiano. âKpakurukpaâ siphons the musicality of a non-word for the hook, which is layered with treated vocals and business-like lyrics about fun: âcome take this life seriously/Hit the floor make we danceâ urges Skales who, elsewhere, enlists the A-list support of Davido on âThis Your Bodyâ.

Hit producer Krizbeatz deploys broody synthesizers and patient piano on âSelenseâ which benefits from the enchanting presence of Zlatan, the inventor of zanku dance craze whose fame has become a source of incredulity: âWhy dem dey threaten my life/Say I use dance collect their wife?â.
