Falz has established himself as one of Nigeria’s top entertainers through his incredible work as a singer, rapper, and actor powered by his slew of projects and awards to prove his competence. All of these have influenced his intentionality which reflects in the targeted way he puts out music these days. His last release, Squander featuring Niniola was a conscious effort to jump on the Amapiano wave, this month, he takes it a notch higher by making an official introduction into South Africa with a remix of Squander featuring some of the country’s Amapiano sensations: Kamo Mphela, Mpura, and SayFar.
Speaking on the reason for the remix, Falz described how elated he was to work with South African artists:
“I love South Africa, I love the Culture and the food. I am really excited about this remix with Kamo Mphela, Mpura & SayFar because it’s a great blend of South African & Nigerian music. Like the first song with Niniola, this is sure to keep you on your feet. Kamo Mphela & Mpura were the best people to complement the song giving it that full amapiano sound because of their distinct voices.”
As expected, the remix is even bouncier than the original song, and while the duo of Niniola and Falz maintains their roles, the trio of Kamo Mphela, Mpura, and SayFar dazzle with their inflections and interpretations that greatly scale Squander‘s originality.
