Years after his entrance into the Nigerian music industry, John Raoul, popularly known as Skales has finally given us his debut album, Man Of The Year – and it was worth the wait. The 20-track masterpiece features various genres of music, showcasing the diversity and talent we all know Skales possesses. Starting off with an electrifying intro by Dotun, the album already captivates you, wetting your appetite and making you want more. Featuring stars like Davido, Olamide, IcePrince, BurnaBoy, Phyno, Reekado Banks, Victoria Kimani, Rotimi, Attitude, Kenny Wonder and with top notch production from Uhuru, Jay Pizzle, Spellz, amongst others, the album has something for everyone, ranging from Rap, Pop, RnB to even House/Electronic Music. “I believe as musicians, we should be able to try and venture into various genres. It’s versatility and an advantage that top artistes like Kanye and Chris Brown can rap as well as they sing. This is what I have always wanted to do and I’m glad I did it. My true fans will appreciate this album. I owe them greatness.” – Skales After everything that had befallen Skales last year, the artiste’s rise from the ashes story makes the album title – MAN OF THE YEAR – even more befitting.
