International music star, Burna Boy returns to the music scene as a lead artiste for the first time since his win at the 63rd Grammy Awards Ceremony  with this banger titled ‘Kilometre’. Burna Boy reminds everyone that he has come a long way and likens his experience to that of legendary Fuji artiste, Shina Peters. He easily rides the  Chopstix-produced beat.

Nigerian top vocalist, Adekunle Gold expresses his feelings on this track. He passes a message across that he isn't ready to entertain whatever will trouble him and how much he values his peace.

Nigerian rapper and BBNaija winner, Laycon drops his debut album titled, “Shall We Begin,” and off the project, we are served ‘Jeje’. The King of the Icons beautifully compliments Starboy act, Terri on this feel-good tune. Also, Laycon displays his lyrical prowess as he attacks the beat like a veteran lyrical assassin.

He links up with 1Da Banton and Rookie of the year, Bad Boy Timz on one of the tracks on the project and they deliver “Faaji.” The word “Faaji” means enjoyment and the trio are available for you to tanana (call) them as they ‘set compass’ for enjoyment.
