Fast rising Nigerian singer and hit-maker, Bella Shmurda comes through with a new song titled “My Friend” to celebrate his birthday today Jan. 27.
Born Akinbiyi Abiola Ahmed, Bella Shmurda has become one of Nigeria’s most formidable vocalists. After rising to prominence back in 2019 following the release of “Vision 2020”, a single which chronicled his time spent hustling on the streets of Lagos, the singer embarked on a peerless singles run which culminated in the release of his first EP, 2020’s High Tension.
This E.P sees the young songster push himself into an experimental world, determined to deliver a classic and rightly so. With “High Tension 2.0“, he makes an extended reach for the frontlines of the New Guards of Afrobeat Music.
Now, with over half a billion streams and on the other side of a Headies Next Rated Award nomination, the street poet continues to speak through music with a conscious message.
Bella Shmurda kick starts 2023 with the release of this new song “My Friend“, produced by Niphkeys. The record is a monotone-sound that comes with a powerful message.
Don’t you say goodbye my friend
If i no text you or call
No be say i don forget
No be say you don offend
If i say goodbye my friend, i just want to dey on check
I just want to gather cheque, and I don’t mean to offend…
