Okay I hate to be that guy but I just had to do it.
Few months ago I stumbled on this record titled “Issa Vibe” from an UK Based Nigerian rapper named Kida Kudz and I was easily impressed by how catchy the record was. I was hoping it would turn into a smash if he could get more buzz around the record. Fast forward to a few days later, I heard another version from another UK Based singer named B Young titled “079ME“. It has that chilled summer feel good vibes to it and has a high replay value. First thought that came to mind after listening to both version was when Tory Lanez remixed Drake’s “Controlla” and got away with it. Only difference in this case is that both acts are selling their singles on streaming platforms – iTunes, Spotify & Tidal. Situations such as this can be confusing to many fans on who actually owns the rights to the production, if at all. Maybe asking the Producer to give us more clarity on the situation will help a lot.
Also, Kida Kudz recently enlisted Burna Boy and Geko to the remix of “Issa Vibe” and you can’t deny this has a potential to be a summer jam.
Listen and share comment below on what artist you think did a better job on the beat, and which song should get more love from the fans.
Kida Kudz – Issa Vibes
B Young – O79Me
Overall, I honestly like both versions but I’ll have to give a slight edge to B Young just because he pulled a Tory Lanez on Kid Kudz..my opinion, Abeg no vex!
