To start with, how many songs should an EP have? 4? 5? Maybe 6? Who makes the rules anyway? Well, if anything, I know a few people that do not conform to conventional set rules and Emeka Solomon is definitely one of them. I mean, a look at his discography will show clearly that he has refused to be boxed into a particular genre. From Highlife, Afropop, Indirap, Afrosoul, Alte, Afrobeats, he has moved across all music groups with such mastery and uniqueness.
With this, it is safe to say that no one knows the number of tracks in Emeka’s Jack Of All Sounds EP because he is a spontaneous creative with exceptional talent that is truly never done creating until the very last seconds. But why the name Jack Of All Sounds? In 2000, Emeka Solomon started out as an R&B singer. He moved to a soothing soul crooner a few years later and a magnificent indigenous rapper years after that. You don’t even need to be a fan to see that his talent roves within the spectrum of all music genres, placing him pole position to contend for the best seats in all music categories.
Jack Of All Sounds: is a wholesome project that a lot of thoughts went into with feature guest appearances from some gifted artists. Jack Of All Sounds is an EP with all types of songs. Whatever your interests are, you are bound to find it on this project. There’s a song for every occasion, every person and every mood. While recording, Emeka Solomon deliberately avoided producing an EP full of a particular type of song, not wanting to be pigeonholed by any music classification or the successes that his Nonsense and Eh tracks recorded. It is a well thought out collection of records which was aptly executed. Ladies and gentlemen, the EP is coming! I present to you, Jack Of All Sounds! @1emekasolom
