Details/Takeaway: Fresh off ‘Obe,’ his collaboration with heartthrob of Nigerian music lovers, Teni the Entertainer, one of the grundnorms of alte and DRB Lasgidi member, BOJ has released visuals to his new single featuring three sonic brothers from Ghana; La Meme Gang member, the perpetually-tinted Darkovibes, rappers and frequent La Meme Gang collaborators, Kwesi Arthur and Joey B.

The song is a laidback tune that soundtracks the seemingly cool parts of living and getting money as BOJ sings in Yoruba on the hook that, “I’m smoking and I’m collecting money…

The song title, ‘Awolowo’ is also a play on words. This music video featuring “colourful cameos” was shot in Ghana and it was directed by Dave Duncan with the lo-fi party scene and VHS effect peculiar to the alte movement.
