Posted on

The Nigerian music industry is one where competition is often shied away from and faux friendships seem to be the order of the day. That said, friendships however do seem genuine. Olamide and Phyno fall under this category. The duo who have collaborated on numerous occassions are called on by the King of the South Side, Timaya on his new record, Telli Person.

The record which features an uptempo beat also features a couple of major keys. Timaya opens with a lesson on the importance of staying strapped while the Clarence Peters directed video shows a couple who must deal with an unwanted pregnancy. On the second verse is Phyno who sticks to the regular formula of Igbo and Pidgin English as he touches on the importance of financial responsibility while sending a subliminal the way of Hushpuppi. Olamide shares the third verse of the record and first samples Shakira’s Waka Waka before delivering a verse about the changes one can expect from neighbors in reaction to fame.
