“Baba told me keep your head high/ Even though your body full of bite from all dem canines/ Steady moving, am just living life/ And so many people in my business/ So many chookin eyes,” the lyrics read.
A few days back, the ‘OBO’ crooner shared a snippet of the song, accompanied by a lengthy post.
“For the first time, I want to bring you into the other part of my world. The part where every day is a battle but I have no option but to ‘Stand Strong’. I present to you, the first single off my next album,” he wrote.
“I know what I’ve experienced the past 10 years, and a lot of you have been through it all with me. But… have you really?
“This one is special to me. It’s different. The conception has been different. The mindset has been different. The making has been different.
“I know you love it when I make you dance, but now I want to make you feel. This one’s for everyone out there holding it up.”
