Last year, we saw a bunch of collaborative tracks led by big label heads like Olamide, Wizkid and Davido. This year, Phyno seems to be carrying the torch with Nuno, Rhatti and Cheque taking each of the song’s three verses. Phyno acts as the glue between them on the chorus — a fitting role, seeing as he brought them together. Unified in their Penthauze Music (PHM) t-shirts, the track and the video show the boys with great synergy on the Soularge-produced beat.
The beat is very minimal, which means the artists have a lot to do to uplift the song, however, they all pull through to produce a relatively strong jam. Nuno shines on the second verse, with commendable lyricism that might see him go far in the industry, given the right push.
