Grammy award winning superstar, Burnaboy is back on his ever cocky energy, right after his big win. ‘Kilometre‘ is a Chopstix produced dub song balanced by quick beats, typically attributed to Burna’s early style of music, on which he reflects on how far he has come and how he has dealt with doubters and naysayers.
This song is a sonic representation of an ‘eargasm‘. Juls brings the Banku music vibe with twangy guitar riffs, synths and mid-tempo drums of Ghanaian highlife, while M.anifest fluently delivers dope verses in both pidgin and English about the confusion that has engulfed the entire system.

Ajebutter finally jumps on the moving amapiano train and his energy on ‘King of Parole‘ is gargantuan. He calls himself the minister of enjoyment and the King of Parole, while rapping about the lavish lifestyle he lives.
