Africa’s No1 Guitarist, Ifiok Effianga, professionally known as FIOKEE, has tag teamed with the reigning prince of Afro Street-hop, Bella Shmurda, to ignite the Yuletide groove with a smash single dubbed, “Personal“.
FIOKEE, who also recently released another evergreen classic dubbed, Follow You featuring Afro-fusion superstars Chike and Gyakie, has successfully carved a discography laden with timeless records. On Personal, he unleashes a harvest of mesmerizing guitar riffs, which blend with the Afro-fusion rhythm on the record.
The chemistry between Bella Shmurda and Fiokee on this introspective groove anthem is seamless, as Bella’s sharp and fluffy vocals simmer through the Amapiano-fused jam.
Fiokee’s dexterity on the strings soars on this record, as he masterfully blends his guitar riffs with the soothing piano chords and log drums of the Amapiano melody, creating a fine Afro-fusion blend that is as silky as cake batter. This ‘Acoustic Amapiano’ is safely one of the most creative experimentations of the genre, especially in a time where the rhythm is fast catching on across the continent.
Personal off Fiokee’s debut album, MAN is a soothing groove, a sound of the moment, pregnant with emotion and wits. Its starpower is its ability to ignite the dancefloors, while still being a pleasurable listen to the ears.
Song is Produced by @jaypizzleproduction and @fiokee.
