Song Review: Still Standing by Cindy. Oh, Just A Weak Standpoint!

“Still Standing” -a strong song title! The expectation is really high when you have such strong language for a title. You would expect high energy, a braggart approval of your current standpoint and most importantly stinging lyrics rubbing your success in their face until “haters” are like “Wabula gwe asinga. You are the best for real!”

However “Still Standing” is as soft as butter. You get the feeling the singer wants you to groove to the lyrics as the song starts off. Its tailor-made as a song you can groove to while your “so called hater” is calling for another round.

Its almost a mutual relationship like a tactical guy caressing the breasts of a girl who keeps saying stop it please, yet at the same time she is holding him in a tight grip, not willing to let go. Similarly, Cindy’s choice of words serves the purpose but the will and instrumental drive to that effect is grossly lacking.

The producer is like that lover who proceeds to take off the girl’s knickers. He chose to have his way. He chose to rape Cindy’s song for 3 minutes and 33 seconds and he was “still standing” for more. He chose a beat that is not in sync with the emotions and, well, that explains the toned down expressions of Cindy’s desire for a “Look at me now. I’m doing great!”

You need an energetic backing not some feeble fading washed down instrumental. To add salt to injury, there are parts of sounds of water drops and brief moments of silence! Was this to justify the soft emotions?

Overall, Cindy might have had the right intentions but the execution failed… Miserably. Who is still standing? The producer, of course to rape even more. Weak and still standing point!

Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things to recover from, and it takes time to finally come to grips with such brutal reality.

Weasel has moved on regardless, recording music as one man band and doing some collabos with fellow artists like King Saha, though he still has not been completely the same person since his music partner and ‘brother’ passed.

He recently intimated to Adelle on Kiss fm Kenya that it was really hard losing Radio. He stopped hanging out in clubs for a while because he could not bare listening to the music they had made together since it brought back very many memories that hurt him.

He also regrets ignoring some of his fallen friend’s phone calls, and leaving him without communicating his whereabouts which has taught him to treasure friendship even more. Weasel also says that Radio’s death helped unite artists in Uganda.

Weasel who is currently in Kenya recording a new season of Coke studio plans to do a special tribute to Radio on the show.

Weasel added that Radio’s death unified Ugandan artistes who had been beefing.

“When Radio was alive, artistes were fighting each other. But when he died, they all tried to come together and they no longer fight because most of them realised the importance of being united. That was a positive thing that happened,” he said.

One highlight that puts a smile on his face when he remembers Radio is when they received their first payment of USh1 million after their first hit song, ‘Nakudata’.

Weasel also revealed that he will pay a tribute to Radio with other singers on Coke Studio 2019.

“It is my second time to be on Coke Studio. This time teaming up with other artistes and paying tribute to the fallen soldiers like Radio and other stars,” he said.

He is also working on a new album that has 15 songs, as well as Radio’s album, which he left unfinished.
