“It’s essentially a fun song about love, loss and just really finding and enjoying the vibe and the second bit of (the song) I wanted to take people to where I am from, that’s the Afro-fusion bit of it,” said Ovie.

“Where I am from, the music we make (in Nigeria), it’s a lot of dancing, happy party music, and the second you hear that second beat come in it’s, oh, I want to move my body. I wanted people to be like, OK, forget what’s going on in the times — I just want to dance.”
