Stogie T and Boity Connect on ‘Original Recipe (Remix)’

Listen to Stogie T and Boity's 'Original Recipe (Remix).'

About a month ago, Stogie T released "Original Recipe Freestyle," a song that took many fans by surprise. In the song, the veteran MC, who's known for his proficiency as a hardcore lyricist, is crooning with the aid of auto-tune, mumble rap style.


By now, you should have figured out that the song was part of KFC's #TheWrapGameHasChanged campaign. Touchline and Boity were known to be part of the campaign, but their involvement beyond appearing on the TV ad, wasn't clear. Well, not until last week.

Boity joined Stogie T to perform a new verse for "Original Recipe Freestyle" at the fast food franchise's Kentucky Nights. The full song was released yesterday, with Boity's verse added.

Boity's flow is solid, and there's really nothing you can do about it. She delivers her verse with conviction, drops some lines that cleverly reference KFC.

As much as this collaboration was facilitated by a brand, it's interesting to hear Boity rap alongside an OG like Stogie T, and him challenging himself to do what the kids do.

How You Can Help Nigeria’s #EndSARS Protests

We round up some ways you can support the movement and its cause, no matter where you are in the world.

Widespread protests against Nigeria's notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) are becoming more of a revolution. The movement is an outcry from youths demanding a general reform of the country, majorly characterized by poor governance, with a focus on the harassment and assaults committed by SARS. The movement has been raging through the city of Lagos for the past three weeks, as protesters home and abroad have taken to the streets in masses to express their keen dissatisfaction.

Hashtags like #EndSARS, #EndPoliceBrutality, and #EndBadGovernanceInNigeria have brandished across all social media platforms to amplify the voices of the youth people fighting back. These hashtags have, in turn, gained traction with the help of celebrities like singers Rihanna, Demi Lovato, and Beyoncé, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, and many others. Nigerian stars, Falz, Runtown, Tiwa Savage, Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, and many more also joined in the movement, as many of them took to the streets with placards.

To date, the peacefully protesting Nigerians' needs have not been met. With said needs not being satisfied as they demand justice for lives lost due to the brutal and corrupt practices of police officers.

We have rounded up some ways you can support this movement and its cause, no matter where you are in the world.
