‘Alhaji’ will be released exclusively for streaming on MTN Music+, on New Year’s day, and serves a strong follow-up to her video ‘In my heart’, which was released in October 2015. Scroll below to watch the video.
“What’s interesting about my music and me as a person is I’m not influenced my trends or whatever is in vogue.” Maire told Pulse.
“My new song has a personal undertone to it. I drew inspiration from events around me. A lot of Nigerian men do not know how to treat women these days and I felt the need to address that.
“The beat has this new foreign R&B sound to it and I kept thinking of how to bring it home so my Naija girls could relate. After a while my emotions kicked in and before I knew it I started singing ‘I go fly you go Dubai swear say I love you die all that one na for sweet mouth’.”
