"We were on tour in Nigeria, and it happened that he [Burna Boy] was there too. Long story short, we went to the studio, and then it happened!"

While keeping most of the original production, the Last Last hitmaker delivered an opening verse and left Mzansi utterly underwhelmed:

Kay_Machili said:

"Some songs don't need to be remixed. I would understand if they wanted to reach a broader market, but the original has already reached the international market. This remix sucks, and what the hell is Burna Boy saying?"

thusga advised:

"SA artists with big songs should stop doing this."

Mjereza231 was unimpressed:

"They messed up a good song, totally unnecessary to make a remix."
