A huge fan of fine boys and Christianity, Jennifer has watched Lynxxx in 2016 marry his dashing handsomeness to a promise to ‘follow God’, cut out immorality in every form, and chase a godly living. She loved it, read every release and righteous post he shared on Instagram.
Just like many fans around the country, she enjoyed his revealing interviews reiterating his commitment to Christ, and deep down in her heart, she rooted for him. She rooted for him deeply and personally, defending the cynics and skeptics who doubted the genuineness of Lynxxx.
“I can’t believe what I heard in his new song”, she said to me. ‘Ghana Girls’, had just finished streaming out of her computer. The new song is part of Lynxxx’s newly released full-length project – “The Album Before The Album”. The track which is an early candidate to be his next single and get a video, was circulated online as a follow-up to the album press release.
Produced by Spax, ‘Ghana Girls’ has Lynxxx is in swashbuckling spirit, as he rhythmically contributes to the popular but scientifically-unproven opinion which maintains that girls from Nigeria’s sister country prefer Nigerians as love interests.
Further listening of the album brings you the reality: Lynxxx is unrestrainedly hedonistic on this album. He chases women, adores spending excessively and displays a very creative knack for expressing love to women. It is only after 18 songs that you get to experience a direct connection with the ‘godly’ Lynxxx on his earlier single ‘Serve you’. God does not start this project, neither does he end it.
But I expected it to happen. Lynxxx is a pop artiste who needs to stay in business to be successful. He is operating on a mainstream level which is intrinsically ruthless, materialistic and hedonistic. It is not an environment for gospel music, neither does it take well to people who bring religion into it.
The pursuit of earthly pleasures and money-worship is what rules the game, and if Lynxxx is to be in business, he has to be down with it.
“Have you ever considered if that was just a phase?” I ask a sulking Jennifer who fails to respond to the question. Lynxxx has essentially betrayed her, and she is too emotional to express it to me, a man who is just happy that Lynxxx is making ‘good’ music again.
