In a recent interview with Native Mag, Nigerian producer Sarz has explained how Wizkid and Skpeta created Longtime off the former's Made in Lagos album.
Speaking to Native Mag in this interview, Sarz revealed that he did not want to work on the song because he was really tired that day. The interview was shared on Wednesday, the 15th of December 2021.
Wizkid released his Made in Lagos album last year with features from the likes of Tems, Burna Boy, Tay Iwar, Damian Marley, and Skepta who feature on Longtime. The song was produced by Sarz and was one of the more prominent songs on the project.
In his interview with Native Mag, Sarz shares the story of how he produced Longtime by Wizkid and Skepta while still tired;
I remember making the song in LA, and I was so tired that day. Wiz and Skep, I feel like they’d been trying to work for a while, but they hadn’t hit the right vibe or something. I’ve experienced them in sessions before and I know, ok maybe nothing’s going to come out of it. So, on this day that they came into the studio, I had already blocked my mind from trying to do anything, but something kept telling me, “no just try, just try, see what happens.” So, I made the beat, I remember Skepta just kept listening to it for hours until he was ready to record. Once he recorded, we all knew it was banger, it’s just such a sick tune. So, I’m really glad that I psyched myself into making it because I was really tired, and I didn’t even want to do it.
