I couldn’t help but grin as I listened to Dtone Martins’ ‘Sun Kun Ife’ which translates to ‘Tears of Love’. The song is the first single off his yet-to-be-named album. Tony Dolapo Martins tells a story in his native Yoruba language of unsanctioned love in a touching, albeit humourous way while strumming his guitar along. His music is a combination of Lagbaja’s visceral sound, with a tinge of Asa’s subtle and emotive composition. An excitingly brilliant song in itself, ‘Sunkun Ife’ provides a good listen.
