Nigeria meets Jamaica on the Young D-produced dancehall-infused jam.
The song opens with a memorable verse from Konshens before both Oritse Femi and Burna join in, making for a unique fusion of Yoruba, Patois and Pidgin over the track's vibrant, multilayered production by producer Young D.
The song sees Burna getting back to his afro-dancehall roots and paying homage to veteran Nigerian dancehall artists, as noted in Konbini.
Twenty-nineteen is shaping up to be another fruitful year for the artist, as he just announced his African Giant Tour, which will begin this April in Boston. Check here for the dates. The artist is also slated to preform at Coachella this year.
