Fiokee, the Nigerian guitarist, has partnered with Bella Shmurda, Afrobeat singer, on a new single titled ‘Personal’.
The song, produced by Fiokee and Jay Pizzle, was released on Wednesday.
‘Personal’ is a soothing groove that rides on an Amapiano tune with Fiokee’s ingenuous strings and Bella’s almost-chant-like melody for wheels for a head-bobbing journey of jam.
“Please don’t take it personal/ Money me I chase, no friends no foes/ I need some space, I dey run my race,” Bella sings from the beginning, giving a glimpse into the incoming barrage of belly-grazing lyricism.
The song comes a few months after Fiokee enlisted Chike and Gyakie for the production of ‘Follow You.’
The guitarist is known for his distinct blend of contemporary highlife and Afrobeats, with occasional forays into blues.
His solos often serve as outros and feature his signature treble S-type Guitar.
He has expressed his interest in inculcating Afro-jazz into his playing. His playing style includes rapid thrills, legato, and frequent octave moves.
Fiokee has worked with the likes of Tiwa Savage, Davido, Teni, Mercy Chinwo, Flavour, and Yemi Alade.
