The last time Omawumi dropped an album was in 2009 when she released Wonder Woman. She was fresh from Idols West Africa and was still trying to make a name for herself in the Nigerian music industry. Today, Omawumi is one of the top female artists in Nigeria. She proves she’s made a name for herself with her latest album Lasso of Truth (available for download now from iTunes).
The title of the album comes from the weapon used by DC Comics Character, Wonder Woman (the name of her previous album) that forces whomever it captures to tell the truth. With this album, we can see that Omawumi is trying to let us into her truth and the different things that make her the woman that she is. From Jazz to R&B to Reggae, Omawumi explores different genres and sounds to create music that anyone can relate to. From talking about social issues in “If You Ask Me”, to talk about the importance of training a child well in ‘The Best You Can Be’, this album is definitely a must-listen.
