Nigeria’s acclaimed guitarist Fiokee, collaborates with Afro R&B/pop sensations, Chike and Gyakie, to create a mesmerizing love melody that is all shades of soothing and exciting christened “Follow You”.
“Baby know that I’m not crazy/ You know that I’m not lazy/ I will follow you anywhere that you want to go/ And I will let the whole world know that I am in love with you,” the heartwarming chorus from Chike captures the essence of the song, which peels into layers of love professions and honest assurances between lovers. Joined by the Ghanaian songbird Gyakie, then laced with Fiokee’s soulful guitar renditions, the track crescendos from the middle right down to the end, as a well-enjoyed meal relished with cold soda. Talented producer, Deyasso who also produced some songs off Chike’s debut ‘Boo of the Booless’, creates a soft-groove harmony that illuminates the vocal prowess of each of the singers while balancing them at the core.
With ‘Follow You’, Fiokee continues to shape his discography with evergreen songs following his earlier releases this year such as Cut Soap, amongst others, have spotlighted the guitar prodigy as one of the most talented acts in the industry currently. Having worked with the likes of Tiwa Savage, Davido, Teni, Mercy Chinwo, Flavour, Yemi Alade, amongst others, he has also created a hit-laden portfolio that leaves you exclaiming like his signature song-openers, “Oh my God, Fiokee!”.
While the Chike and Gyakie feature is a no-brainer for an exceptional love anthem, it is definitely an amazing selection that breathed life into this melody. Chike, earlier this year, also released a cover of Gyakie’s hit-single, Forever, which heightened anticipation of a duet between the two singers.
