Tanzanian singer and Kings Music Records boss Alikiba admits he’s “Jealous” in a new song featuring his Nigerian counterpart Mayorkun. It’s a meeting of two champions, albeit of different provenances.
Alikiba is from East Africa and he’s keeping up with his promise to release singles from his imminent project until the project drops finally. He had previously released “Salute” in collaboration with Nigeria’s Rudeboy.
By working with another Nigerian, Alikiba may have revealed his West African ambitions without ever mouthing a word about it. The “Salute” track was a winner with the public, all right, but it looks like “Jealous” is about to snatch the buzz.
Alikiba never revealed why he picked Mayorkun for this song, and indeed one cannot begrudge him his choice in that he and his Nigerian pal had a wonderful outing on the song. You may as well say the musical synergy between them was great.
Mayorkun is part of Davido’s DMW and 30BG. He’s also a respectable voice and one who has managed to remain consistent in the game. You should love his verse.
What do you make of “Jealous,” though? You may stream the song below and join the conversation by dropping your thoughts in the comment section.
