We stumbled across another rock cover for Korede Bello’s Godwin. This one came out earlier than Clay’s version, however, I don’t expect this to be the last one we hear.
Mac Roc, whose real name is Efe Macdonald Idu, is a professional music producer, actor and model. He was born in Lagos and graduated from Benson Idahosa University, Benin, where he studied Computer Science.
Mac Roc’s cover of the of the song is really, really good. I really like this version with the electric guitar, keyboard and background vocals. Luciano is featured on this. I like how it starts off slow and gradually rises in tempo before ending with a great solo. Good stuff!
More and more Nigerian bands seem to be going the route of doing covers (as AxlPif continually claims he knew would happen) which, in my humble opinion, is a really good idea. It allows people to pay attention and puts the name of the band out there. This, hopefully, leads to people listening to the original music for the bands. Which can only be a good thing for the rock scene in this country.
Be sure to check Mac Roc’s band page for more info on the artist as well as access to his social media pages. We will be doing a review for the song pretty soon.
