Let’s talk about your hit single, ‘Awka get boiz’ What was the inspiration? How did it happen? Are we expecting any video soon?
Awka Get Boiz was just something my team vibed to and was then taken seriously. Of course for the title we had to come up with what people (not just the boys) in and from the city could really relate to. Sounds simple but it wasn’t and yeah you should expect a video soon.
