Since Nigerian singer, Olamide, released his hit song, ‘Shakitibobo’, it has been all about town.  Soul-jazz singer, Kaline,  in collaboration with British artist Polly Alakija, has just given us a soulful version of the song.

Speaking about the song, Kaline said on her website,

When I was deciding on songs for this series, I wanted to do something that was totally unexpected, challenging and unique. I wanted the song to still be recognizable but I wanted to make an arrangement that would place the song in a whole new genre to where it was initially.

Olamide is a superstar Afro-pop artist in Nigeria and I love love love his song ‘Shakitibobo’. It was until I did this cover that I realized what he was actually saying. I had to write every single line down and practice and practice for ages before I learned the melody. After that, I then figured out how to add my own touch to it and make it my own. I absolutely respect Olamide and his vocal ideas. Very creative and unusual. I hope he gets to here this.
