    I’ve been wishing these two to date ever since I saw Yemi alade’s cover of his song. She did a fantastic job. They are so cute.

    This song IS romantic and theres not a lot of Naija songs I can say that about(well, this isn’t a naija song but still). They tend to be overly sappy, shallow or incinsere. Something about the way her vocals soar on the chorus just sells the emotion.

    Yemi’s voice shines on this. I grew to appreciate her talent by watching her life, so much energy! I’m also glad that songs like this and ‘Sugar n Spice’ are indicative of the direction her new sound is taking.
    Most Afropop songs hide the vocals of the singers, look at Seyi Shay, Wande Coal, Iyanya e.t.c. Only a few can overcome the hurdles like Victoria Kimani, Tiwa Savage, Shaydee and co.
