“…tell me why are we/ so blind to see/ that the ones we hurt/are you and me…”
Kogi-born singers YQ of H.O.P UNIT and Jaywon of NEXT WORLD ENT. are currently working on a joint EP titled JOINT HEARTS. The EP drops this year and the video for the first single off it, Carry My Bag was slated for release this week initially, but the situation of things in Nigeria and the world generally got both artistes to instead, release a song lending a concerned voice to the fight for world peace and against terrorism in Nigeria specifically and the world in general.
The song titled You & Me samples classic tunes from Coolio’s Gangstar Paradise which was a world hit in the 90s. YQ comes strong rapping (for the first time on any song) while Jaywon delivers a complementing vocal rendition to make it a complete song.
It is conscious and it is real. May this message and other positive messages of hope and support from all over the world strengthen the campaign to #BringBackOurGirls #BringBackThePeace and #BringBackNigeria, the Nigeria of our dreams!
