I recorded over 50 songs and we narrowed it down to 10 songs. It’s like the usual recording process. It’s mostly vibes. I wrote some of the songs on the album and I’m really proud of these songs because when I have a private listening in my home, some of the songs I wrote were people’s choice."
The album comprises a good number of afrobeats feel-good vibes with production credit going to MzVee’s in-house music producer Kizzy Beats.
