New Music: Questionmark All Stars – Hold Yuh (Remake)



The original song by Gyptian has been viral to say the least. The Questionmark All Stars chose to make their own rendition of the now (in)famous beat. They have done well for themselves as far as a remake is concerned. The All Stars include Harry Song, Ego, Lil Tee, and Steen Prof of D’Supremes.

    @fokasibe considering it was recorded under 2 hours, i’d say it is decent collaboration.

    @ Dro, yeah, it’s decent and pretty easy to record things in under 2 hours when it’s not an original!! I can imagine it took Gyptian or whoever wrote the lyrics far longer than that time just to pen the lyrics…and it would have taken Nicki Minaj longer as well to write her rap verse…and it would have taken the arrangers longer to arrange the music but for us in 9ja, we all only care about the fact we can knock things off in record time (just like how we knock off a movie a day in Nollywood) so I guess it’s a record for you?

    For me, I would like the mark team to come up with something more original and no just do a cover of other peoples songs!!

    As a Jamaican-American who loves Nigerian culture and music, I have to say that I personally admired originality and the unique African-ness of Nigerian hip-hop/Afrobeat. I don’t personally need Nigerians to try to re-make Jamaican music, if effort is not even being exerted into such a project. Art is about more than just a quick buck. “Hold Yuh” actually came out 2 years ago, and just now caught on…Gyptian has been crafting his art since the mid-2000s and is just now being recognized by mainstream audiences worldwide. During that time, however, Gyptian was honing his craft and becoming a bonafide star. Basically, what I’m saying is that the couple of hours spent on this remix could have been spent on developing some authentic and good music…and the world (and fans) would have been better for it. This is not hate…just constructive observation to brothers across the pond.
