Social media has become a huge incubator for relationships between rising acts and bigger stars. It’s how Mayorkun was discovered by Davido, Rema by D’Prince and the list goes on. For Buju, one of Lagos’ breakout artists over the past year following impressive releases like A Day in Lagos and Commander, a Twitter campaign urging engage with Zlatan was the means to earning a feature on new single, Spiritual and perhaps his biggest door opener into the mainstream.
Staying true to the laid back approach that has gotten him this far, Buju sings about a woman he’s taken an interest in and allows Zlatan back him up with adlibs on the hook. On his opening verse, he doubles down and proceeds to woo his new lover urging to stay by her side regardless of the situation. Zlatan shares a verse dominantly in Yoruba keeping the message the same and suggesting he’s ready to take the next step with her.
