“Link Up” wasn’t just a hit, it was a big one. For both of them. Especially for Reekado, who needed to prove he has friends, here.
Move featuring Vanessa Mdee
Actually his single, but it won’t be fair not to include it here. Banks teamed up with Tanzania’s finest and hottest in diaspora, Vanessa Mdee, for “Move” a song that was an instant hit.

He was literally on a spree at that time. He was dishing out singles, every now and then. “Like Me” happened to come at the right time. Not to forget, it came with the right artists on it. Tiwa Savage was enough.
Like featuring Tiwa Savage and Fiokee
You can’t imagine the song without Tiwa Savage singing that “baby boy you be jailer, handcuff me, no go leave me oh. ” Really.
