Khalid Recruits Davido and Tems on New Single 'Know Your Worth'

Khalid Recruits Davido and Tems on New Single 'Know Your Worth (Remix)'

American singer Khalid teams up with Nigerian talents Davido and Tems for the vibrant remix of 'Know Your Worth'.

American singer-songwriter Khalid has just dropped the remix to his latest release titled "Know Your Worth". In the original version of the track, Khalid featured English duo Disclosure. He now teams up with Nigerian superstar Davido and alt-R&B singer Tems to deliver a textured production which retains the laid-back feel of the original while fusing elements of Afrobeats and dancehall.


Davido was not kidding at all when he called on artists to collaborate shortly after bagging "Best International Act" at the 2018 BET Awards. Since then, he's gone onto to produce some stellar collaborations with several international artists––the latest being Khalid.

Tems, on the other hand, is the rising Nigerian star whose voice has been compared to that of Tracy Chapman's. Undoubtedly talented and driven to deliver a fresh sound on the Afrobeats-dominated Nigerian music scene, she's definately an artist we're keeping our eye on this year.

As far as really good remixes go, we reckon you'll have this track stuck on repeat for a while.

Kayode Kasum’s Quarantine Watchlist

From 'Wives on Strike' to 'Goodwill Hunting' here's what the Nigerian filmmaker is watching while stuck at home in Lagos.

Kayode Kasum, like most filmmakers, has been stagnated by the coronavirus pandemic. The director behind the blockbuster Sugar Rush and the critically acclaimed Oga Bolaji was working on the post-production of his upcoming movies, The Fate of Alakada: Party Planner and Kambili—a collaboration between FilmOne Entertainment and Chinese Huahua Media— when the Nigerian government announced the lockdown order.

While post-production on Alakada has concluded, the stay-at-home orders have delayed work on Kambili. "Since the team cannot meet at a single point, we are moving hard drives left and right," he says to me over the phone from his home in Lagos. "It is a challenge, but the beautiful thing about a challenge is, when you make it work, it is fulfilling."

Kasum has turned to books and films for an escape from the unpleasant realities of the pandemic. "I have been reading Elnathan's books: Born on a Tuesday and Becoming Nigeria," he tells me. "I have also been reading film directing books, Directing Actors by Judith Weston." However, Kasum longs for the movies. "I miss going to the cinemas; I miss that experience," he says. "There are times during this pandemic that I'm like 'na wa o, I wish I can go to the cinema.'"

Below are five films he recommends you watch during this pandemic.
