“So I wrote this song back in Highschool when I was starting out. I found my ‘Rhyme’ Book as I was moving Houses A few years ago. The song was about this Babe I had a crush on in high school. Back then I was in Highie (Highways Sec.) and we used to walk from Mada to South B daily ?? She was in the Bus ? for LCVR which used to pick up girls from Mada at the time. Long Story short; Sometime last year I decided to rewrite the song, now that I have better Swagger, lyrics and flow ? When I told Dillie, my producer, he suggested we get a voice on it.. He introduced me to Didge a few weeks later and we had one session with him where we did the verses and the chorus. Didge later had a session where he finished the Bridge and his ad-libs I don’t know why it’s taken us over a year to shoot and release the video, but I’m glad it’s finally out. Most times Mziki Ni process. Thanks to all in my crew TEAMMISTARI Who made this possible.
