The gifted singer announced the release of the song, produced by Dwillsharmony, on Friday.

‘Soro Soke’, a Yoruba phrase, which means speak louder in English, was a popular term used by Nigerians during the recent #EndSARS protest.

The protest, which lasted for about two weeks, was aimed at ending police brutality and excesses of operatives of the now-disbanded special anti-robbery squad (SARS) in the country.

In a statement, Snipes said the song was inspired by happenings in the country, particularly events that took place in October.

“We just survived one of the scariest months of our lives and I was hurting and angry at my country so I put all that pain to good use on this song,” he said.

He added that the song is a “warm-up track” for his forthcoming projects including an extended play (EP).

In the track, Snipes croons about how youth have continued to live in palpable fear of being harassed by security operatives meant to protect them.

It also sees the ‘Kin Se’ singer calling on the youth to speak up against deeply-rooted ills in the country with a view to charting a new course forward.

“Soro soke, you buy car you dey fear to drive so l asked why, olopa dey for that junction…make you no drive for that junction…this our country no be nation,” he could be heard singing.
