When Nigerian crooner Johnny Drille released ‘How Are You’ [My Friend] in 2022, he expected it to do well and it did. A bigger surprise was in how his audience related to the song, thanks to his creative songwriting skills. It is easy to connect with the song. 

One thing about adulthood is that it takes a toll on maintaining friendships as the hustle and bustle of life are unforgiving. This takes away the thought to check on those who really matter in life. It is on this premise that Johnny Drille derives the lyrics of his song and they emotionally and positively resonate with his fans. 

Age, talent, and time are all irrelevant when it comes to the song's rhythm, tempo, vocals and flawless line of thought. Johnny delivers this Afrosoul hit with lyrical precision and an outstanding emotional drive that is deeply mesmerizing. He creates an aura of reassurance and affirmation which his producer Don Jazzy capitalizes on to dish out a masterpiece record. 

The emotionally charged hit is charismatic both with its writing, production and fantastic delivery. ‘How Are You’ [My Friend] is the one song that takes you back in time to beautiful memories of friendship. Being a Mavin Records signed artist, Johnny Drille doesn’t disappoint with his emotional touch.
