FOKN Bois and Mr Eazi Give Their Loyal Fans Due Props in "True Friends"

The Ghanaian hip hop duo link up with Nigeria's Mr Eazi in a gritty new single that rightfully calls out fake friends.

Ghana's very own FOKN Bois have dropped a collab track with Mr Eazi that's the essential "no new friends" anthem of 2019.

"True Friends" is their latest single ahead of of their new album, Afrobeats LOL, which will be released Feb. 22, Konbini reports.


A King Stunn production, the track starts out with stripped keys striking minor chords with heavy bass and synths being the underbelly of the hip hop duo and Nigerian pop star calling a spade, a spade—calling out those in your orbit who only show themselves when times are good.

"How many of your friends truly support your craft/business with their finances or by sharing with their networks? We dare to say our only true friends are our fans," the FOKN Bois explain via YouTube. "You buy, share, like, stream and retweet."

We hear no lies in this tune, as we all constantly reevaluate who truly shows up when we need support in our endeavors. This collab is also continues to show the versatility of both artists and how their clever play with words. We indeed can bop our heads and zanku to thoughtful bangers, y'all.
