Jamaican rising artist delivered a meaningful interpretation of the Nigerian hymn, recorded on BBC’s 1xtra Live Lounge show.
Young singer Koffee is skyrocketting into global recognition, leading a blossoming new Jamaican Reggae Dancehall scene. Last week, during her first London performance, she covered Burna Boy‘s hit “Ye” in an brilliant way.
Strolling through the verses with ease and verve, she delivers the Pidgin and Yoruba lyrics and adds her singular vocal touch. The performance was so striking that Burna Boy shared it on Instagram, alluding to a possible future collaboration.
While waiting for this potential transcontinental collaboration, you can watch her cover recorded during her performance at BBC’s 1xtra Live Lounge show.
