Tanzanian singer Nandy has finally dropped her collaboration with Congolese Lingala maestro Koffi Olomide dubbed ‘Leo Leo’.
The song lives up to the expectations, having fused both Lingala and bongo style.
The beat is mostly Lingala, with both musicians taking a multilingual approach incorporating Lingala, English, and Swahili.
The song was produced by Kimambo. The song centers around love, with Nandy noting that it is in line with the upcoming Valentine's Day.
Both singers delve into the importance of soothing a lover for a smooth relationship. Commenting on the song, Nandy revealed that it was a pleasure working with Koffi Olomide while hailing him for humility.
The singer noted that they had to re-do the vocals, but Olomide had opposed it at first. Notably, Olomide had recorded his vocals while in Congo but was only in Tanzania to record the video.
“Yuko very humble...sikutegemea msanii kama huyu angekuja kwangu turudie zile vocals kwa mara ya pili...alikataa mara ya kwanza,” said Nandy.
Nandy added that working on the song cost her almost Tsh70 million to cater for everything. The singer states that she does not regret the cost as it will elevate her career.
Nandy becomes the second bongo musician to work with Kofi. Last year, Olomide dropped the ‘Waaah’ single featuring Diamond Platnumz.
