We may not all have to wait till Christmas to receive the promise of good tidings for every household this year. Of course, we admit this announcement comes with a package that may exclude party Jollof and chicken attached with the season, what we have for you, however, is similarly just as satisfying in value and hopefully in content.
Barely a few hours ago, Instagram timelines of many around the world were flooded with the picture above in what appears to be a Nigerianisation of the game of thrones ‘winter is coming’ anecdote used as a motif for this picture featuring Chocolate City Boss M.I and 2Baba.
Not much has been revealed about the details what is about to happen but this two have collaborated across three solid singles; M.I’s Nobody off his 2010 M.I 2: The Movie album, 2face’s Be There (Remix) off The Unstoppable: International Edition released in 2011 and most recently, Human Being which features vocals from Sound Sultan. These three singles stand out in content and consistency enough to be compiled into a mini-EP . This should be music to ears of any music lover, sadly we don’t have any information on whatever they’re planning at the moment.
Our best guess is that this is the first in a series of pre-release photos for the premiere of M.I’s Human Being video off his 2014 Chairman album. However, the curious exclusion of Sound Sultan who was also another voice on the iconic number clouds our absolute certainty of whatever they have in store.
A tall wishlist, however, will request that whatever they have planned is somewhere along the lines of a joint project. The two are currently on the ‘Buckwyld ‘n’ Breathless: The Disruption Africa’ tour which kicked off in Kenya earlier last month. We’re silently hoping they decided to combine the same efforts into creating a full blown — first of its kind — project. The weight of both brands in talent and skill will be nothing short of magic if they find the synergy to replicate it on a project.
We are prepared for whatever M.I and 2Baba’s winter is bringing along with it, are you?
