The track dropped like a bombshell on October 18, 2023, and has since been setting the charts ablaze with its explosive beats and controversial verses.
Ypee, the award-winning rapper who’s been entangled in a longstanding beef with fellow lyrical heavyweight Oseikrom Sikanii, took a swing with well-crafted words in his guest verse on the track.
