Ghana’s own rap legend, Sarkodie signed up buzzing Nigerian singer, Oxlade for this one released as a single off Sarkodie’s sixth studio album No Pressure.
On the sad love themed record produced by DJ Coublon, Sarkodie and Oxlade effortlessly blend with Oxlade doing justice to the hook and Sarkodie doing his trademark rap. Can't place a lot of records above this one.
- Fameye - Praise
“An inspiring life story capturing how hopeful he has been throughout his musical journey.” On the record, Fameye “attributes it all to God as he eulogizes Him for bestowing unto him mercy and grace.”
Quite a relatable and beautifully sung tune no wonder it would soon become a hit record adding to Fameye’s repertoire of hits.
- Mr Drew - Mood
Since being the first runner up at the MTN Hitmaker 6 in 2017, Mr Drew has forged on to improve his craft and this year paid off being the most successful year in his decade long music career.
