Thanks to MTV for this nomination and good luck to all the other nominees” expresses AKA.
“I have always been about pushing my art in different directions and coming up with fresh new sounds. The song features Burna Boy, Khuli Chana and Yanga. Produced by myself and Master A Flat, with additional production by Tweezy, the song is about having great chemistry with your significant other and being a good combination. Thank You for the overwhelming response so far. It’s about to be another awesome summer” shares AKA.
