This foursome hail from Nigeria though anybody expecting some fiery Afrobeat had better look elsewhere. This is slinky R&B with the sistahs coming on with breathily delicate harmonies while producers Jeff Taylor and Chinaku Danforth programme some lightly funky grooves over which the group can soulfully emote. As is usual when Christian groups go after the R&B market, lyrics become unrelentingly vacuous though the weakness of "Let's Live Together" is, in part at least, offset by a sister rapping in Hausa, Yoruba and Ibo. Overall, one feels that Kush are a good group let down by a far too stylised approach to their music.
