However, in an Instagram post, the ‘Quarantei’ hit makers noted that they’ll drop something new this coming Friday.
“One bad hit dropping on 21st 9 a.m. Stay tuned,” the group posted.
Ethic’s last song was ‘Staki Nkimedi’ off their new album ‘Big Man Bado Odinare’. It was released in early June.
The ‘Big Man Bado Odinare’ album was also released at the same time, but only ‘Staga Nkimedi’ was shared on YouTube, with the other songs available for streaming on digital platforms at a fee.
