2face’s effort, which was a major crossover hit in its day, featured in his classic Grass 2 Grace album.

A playful number, the song features an Afro-Caribbean vibe that perfectly fits beside the love-professing lyrics.

A playful song, “2 Women” is off the former Remedies’ man Tony Tetuila’s 2006 album, Free Soldier.

The song details Tony’s indecision when it comes to women and for the trio of VIP guests, rather than aiding a friend to choose, they infuse their playful elements of Hiplife, making the song a loose declaration that shoots at nothing in particular, but fun.

R2Bees – Your Hand (feat. Wande Coal) (2009)

At the peak of his powers, Nigerian vocal powerhouse Wande Coal released his magnum opus Mushin to Mohits.

On a tour to support the widely acclaimed album, he landed in Ghana, dropped a freestyle, and the rest they say is history.

Your Hand”, his collaboration with Ghanaian group R2Bees features parts of that freestyle; the song itself, features energetic proclamations of love from the trio, with Wande Coal’s lyrics being the icing on the cake.

This song will go on to be the first link of a fruitful business partnership that, years later, will see them, alongside compatriot Efya, become Starboy Entertainment affiliates.

“Slow Down” is an Afro Pop song that moves at a gentle pace, playing to the vocal power of the trio of artists.

BOJ – Awolowo (feat. Kwesi Arthur, Darkovibes & Joey B) (2019)

‘Awolowo’ is a mid-tempo song that features lewd storytelling and generally, the depiction of a feel-good lifestyle, peculiar to today’s youth.

The featured artists take turns in delivering well-laced verses and BOJ assumes hook duties.



On the hook, he sings in his unique voice about stacking cash even as he smokes. Of course, this is delivered in Yoruba.

The GMK beat is ingenious in the laid-back mood it sets; there is the Spanish guitar, and the kick drums – it is a really good production.
