On the back of the original single amassing nearly five million global streams, amidst going viral on TikTok, and garnering support from BBC 1Xtra, Clash Magazine, Music Week, Rinse FM, Earmilk, and Notion Magazine, among others, fast-rising Nigerian pop artist and producer IDAHAMS is excited to run it back for the summer with a shiny new remix of ‘WETIN NO GOOD’ featuring boisterous afrobeats artist and dancer Eltee Skhillz, and exciting new Nigerian rapper Dandizzy.
Set for release on July 20 via Grafton Records, the ‘Wetin No Good’ remix takes the originally infectious pop track, which was produced by Yussy Beatz (Adekunle Gold, Yemi Alade), and elevates it further to extraordinary levels. The afrobeats and amapiano fusion, as well as the magical drum patterns and thumping bassline from the original still remain, but the remix adds an infectious verse from Eltee Skhilz, and witty wordplay from Dandizzy, to Idahams’ lush vocals and melodies.
The ‘Wetin No Good’ remix also comes with an accompanying music video starring Idahams, Eltee Skhillz, and Dandizzy. Shot on location in Lagos, and directed by award-winning Nigerian filmmaker Promise Charles, the visuals bring the song’s themes of love, sex, and relationships further to life, as it captures all three leading men lusting after the same love interest, only to find out that she’s ready to serve all these men a dose of hot breakfast, which is Nigerian slang for heartbreak.
Speaking on how the ‘Wetin No Good’ remix came together, Idahams says, “I was happy with the feedback I received from fans about the original song, and so I thought to invite two of my friends for a highly anticipated remix. Dandizzy is a gifted rapper and my brother from Port Harcourt, so it was only right to get him on this remix, and Eltee Skhillz is one singer whose energy and work ethic I truly admire. Both artists first came to mind when I was thinking about a remix for thins song, and I hope the fans love this remix as much as we enjoyed creating it, but also, as much as the original”.
Hailing from Bonny Island in Nigeria’s River State, Idahams has emerged as one of the most exciting new faces of afropop music on the global stage, with two acclaimed projects in the last two years, over 50 million streams, and four top 10 singles on Music Week’s UK Black Music Chart, among other achievements. Influenced by the rich culture and indigenous sounds of his hometown, his afropop music is driven by percussions-laded rhythms, and highlife music sensibilities. Not resting on his laurels from last year’s successes, Idahams is one to watch in afropop’s global takeover.
