Lifesize Teddy Ep review

Air” sounds like a well-made track. The song makes us recognise Lifesize Teddy’s vocal difference. She has quite different vocals than we are used to hearing from female artists in Nigeria- and the fact that she is a rapper might have contributed to this.

She has quite the vocal strength. Her vocal dexterity is admirable and the rap she did on “Air” is a decent one. Also, great work on the chorus. Air might not enjoy the most popularity on this EP because of its genre.

Hypnotic” is that record. It sounds as though Lifesize Teddy took her time to make the song and intended to make it a hit track. Sure, the chorus is catchy and amazing, and infact, it reminds us of Amaarae’s “Sad Girls Luv Money”. The song arrangement and production of this track is overwhelming, but not in a bad way.

The way Lifesize Teddy eases into the chorus after the overwhelming verses is commendable. Her rap verse on this track is the most suitable so far on the EP because it matches the song energy. The delivery on this track is also amazing and it’s good that she ended the song with the chorus. Hopefully, the song becomes a favourite among listeners.

While “Hypnotic” sounds like the song that was made to be an intentional hit, “Butterflies” is the song Nigerians will find more relatable and might even become their favourite. It will enjoy a lot of popularity among them, and might even be something for the TikTok kids. It’s obviously not the best song on Lifesize Teddy Ep- because of its corny lyrics, but its simplicity will make it easy to embrace by listeners.

John Wick” is a cool record, and sounds like that style of music that Lifesize Teddy loves singing and is passionate to sing because her delivery sounds more high on it than it did on “Butterflies”.

While the song does not match the title (although she mentions “John Wick” at the end of the chorus), and yes, we understand the intended correlation. Lifesize Teddy makes an incredible run on this song and the fact that it is a danceable track makes it even more of a bop.

What Lifesize Teddy did on “Prophetic” is applaudable. First, she does not lower down on her delivery and songwriting on this track because it is a “grateful-themed” track that must end a project-like most Nigerian artists do with their albums. Prophecy still contains some deep-though lyricism that makes it even more of a solid EP closer. Kudos to Lifesize Teddy on the closing track.


Lifesize Teddy “LFT” EP Review

Mavin might have groomed Lifesize Teddy, but she is possessed with so much talent that training is obviously not the sole reason for. The fact that she is actually a good singer and a smooth rapper makes her the whole package deal. Nigeria hasn’t had a solid female rapper in a while, and Lifesize Teddy will fill that need.

For a debut EP, her project is quite a noteworthy one, with nods on her deep-thought lyrics and vocal arrangement.



Delivery: 1.4/2

Lyricism/Songwriting: 1.3/2

Relatability: 1.5/2

Replay Value: 1.4/2
