Because the new song celebrates the black skin, some went ahead to troll people who have bleached their skin already.

Other Nigerian artistes like Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, Tekno, Mr Eazi and Burna Boy alongside Ghana’s Shatta Wale and Busiswa, were also featured.

Already, Nigerians are advocating for at least a Grammy nomination for the artistes featured. We hope they get it sha.
