It is the second single from the rapper's debut studio album, Everybody Loves Ice Prince (2011).[1] The song reached number 1 on charts across Nigeria and the continent, but did not achieve the same level of astronomical popularity that its predecessor "Oleku" had.[2][3] Even so, many observers of the music industry noted the song as one of the most notable Nigerian songs of 2011.
