  • The first song Good Time features T-Classic, Jean, and Alex. It's a dancehall record.

  • Masterkraft and Nelson Freitas team up with Fiokee on this one-tagged Smooth Operator. The jam is a mid-tempo afro-fusion tune with some amapiano sounds.

  • Here is another afro-fusion from Fiokee. It is one of the singles on this project. Personal features Nigerian street-pop singer, Bella Shmurda.

  • Fiokee's I Cannot is a danceable melody featuring Yemi Alade written by Nwamonye Ikemefuna and Yemi Alade.

  • Chike and Gyakie link up on this groovy tune tagged Follow Me. It is one of the single on this project and one of my personal favourites.

  • Here is my personal best song on this album. Number One is a collaboration between Nigerian songstress, Guchi and Ghanaian singer, Kelvyn Boy.

  • Klem and Ric Hassani team up with Fiokee for this loveable record tagged Be a Man.

  • Layydoe and Peruzzi come together for this amazing tune You Bad. Fiokee indeed knows how to A/R a project. This is a lovely record.

  • Here is another tune with so much potential tagged Nne. Of course, it will help you appreciate Fiokee's strength on the guitar as it is a highlife tune featuring The Cavemen.

  • Looking for a tune o vibe to while celebrating? Here is one I will highly recommend. Kelewa by Fiokee and Umu Obiligbo is a lovely record.

  • One thing about this record I cherish so much is instrumental. The featured artists, Mua Sama and Lirical did justice on his one. The groovy tune is tagged Forever.

  • Of course only fire is expected from a Simi and Oxlade collaboration. Koni Koni is a record you will surely appreciate. It is addictive!

  • D-Black, Sefa, and Vector compile a new tune titled Dance.

  • One thing about this record I cherish so much is instrumental. Goodness & Mercy performed by Nosa and Ada Ehi is a big tune.
