Fiokee, the Nigerian guitarist, has partnered with Chike and Gyakie, Afrofusion singers, for ‘Follow You’.
The song, produced by Deyasso, who is also credited for Chike’s debut ‘Boo of the Booless’, was released on Friday.
‘Follow You’ creates a soft-groove harmony that illuminates the vocals of the singers and balances them at the core.
“Baby know that I’m not crazy/ You know that I’m not lazy/ I will follow you anywhere that you want to go/ And I will let the whole world know that I am in love with you,” the heartwarming chorus from Chike captures the essence of the song, which peels into layers of love professions and honest assurances between lovers.
With the Ghanaian lovebird herself taking a verse, laced with Fiokee’s soulful guitar renditions, the track crescendos from the middle right down to the end, like a well-enjoyed meal relished with cold soda.
Fiokee’s latest release comes after his prior projects — one of which is ‘Cut Soap.’
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.
