“Deliciously Dedicated”

published 20/02/2004

ProWonderful soulful voice

ConsWeak lyrics in places

Some months ago I was watching a music channel on the television, when I was completely mesmerised by the voice of a young man singing his debut single release in the United Kingdom. That song was called ‘Dance with U’ and the artist’s name was Lemar. It transpired that Lemar Obkiu was a...

ProLemar has a fantastic voice

ConsMore tracks please!

As much as I love reality TV, Fame Academy really didn't appeal to me. However one night with nothing else on I flicked over and was immediatly won over by a gorgeous voice.... and man.... Lemar Obika he sung and looked like a godsend. When he didn't win I was disapointed but knew it wouldn't be...

“Dedicated to Lemar”

published 25/10/2013

ProGreat vocals

ConsNot much, maybe a couple of the more uptempo track...

**Introduction** Lemar Obika became well known through the Fame Academy in 2002 and this was his debut release after coming second to David Sneddon in the Academy. Lemar impressed enough to be given a five year deal by Sony Records worth £1m. In 2003 he released his first album, Dedicated was...

“Every Loser wins!”

published 16/05/2004

ProExcellent Debut, Easy Listening

ConsCouple of dud slushies.

Lemar had always been my favourite in Fame Acadamy and i was completly shocked when he was voted off the show. To me, he was the only one there with a natural talent. And this album proves my point! When his first song was released, Dance (with u) I instantly liked it. Nice funky r&b number, but...

“Lemar Fame Academy star”

published 01/03/2004

ProVery funky

ConsBit cheesy

Very good R 'n' B album. It starts a bit cheesy. If you are a serious fan of this kind of music and comparing to American artists, you may feel why have I bought this.? But it warms up. A few soft ballads. Personal favourite is Lullaby. Basic bars, but sweet lyrics. I also like last track , All I...

ProBrilliant debut album, very promising R & B star

ConsA few more slushy ones than I expected

This is an excellent debut album from one of the contestants on the first Fame Academy. Two of the tracks on this album have already been released as singles:- 'Dance with you', and '50/50'. These are both quite uptempo, dancey tracks, and are what prompted me to buy the album. When I listened to...

“Another reality tv star?”

published 10/03/2004

ProUpbeat, diverse and shows talent!

ConsOccasional bad lyrics and tries to be American!

I didn't watch a single episode of Fame Academy out of protest therefore when I heard Lemar's first single, Dane With U, I hadn't even heard of him! So my opinion of this was completely unbiased as to me he was a completely new artist. And I have to say I loved his first single. It was the...

Prounique voice, fab

ConsShort album

Lemar has really suprised the Uk after his disadpointing result on Fame adamany he was the only winner in my eyes. His album is a cut above the rest. his voice is wonderful and his songs really suit the husky sounds that are expressed when he moves his lips. Dance with you is a song you can...
