Adekunle Gold has apparently rebounded from tragedy, the loss of his father, to gift the world another fine track, a remix of his single “Before You Wake Up.” So the track in hand is “Before You Wake Up (Remix).“
This new track features notable Tanzanian singer Vanessa Mdee. The original track had no featured artiste. Electing to feature another artiste, and a notable one from another country, comes off as ambitious and the song gains from it.
Adekunle Gold recently released the music video of the original, with an unknown lady playing the role of his love interest. In the event the music video of the remix should be released, Vanessa Mdee should take up the role of Adekunle Gold‘s love interest without problems. It is her stuff.
As in she had played the role with poetic ease in the past, most recently as a feature on Chege‘s “Mangejeka.“
Vanessa Mdee‘s place in Tanzanian music is a secure one. Since her appearance on the country’s music horizon, she has worked her way into critical relevance, showing to the stragglers that art and dedication to one’s art do pay.
To her credit may be counted songs like ” That’s For Me,” featuring Distruction Boyz, DJ Tira and Prince Bulo, “Bambino,” featuring Nigeria’s Reekado Banks, “The Way You Are,“ and “Together.” featuring DJ Julio and Mp7.
