Beyond the reverb effect, there’s something about the way Duncan Mighty sings “I Want To Be Like This, If Love Can Be Like This” that lingers. Dripping with loss, hurt, and regret, it also contains an element of hope. And with a feature from Wizkid, their combination, “Fake Love” is a delightful listen despite the message of romantic hopelessness.
The Clarence Peters directed video is mainly performative over the mid-tempo beat Killertunes produces with atmospheric synth backdrop, Duncan Mighty and Wizkid combine to deliver vocals—in English and an indigenous language—that seem to say “Only Fake Girls Be Loving When You Have/ When E Ready Them To Hammer”. Their confessional is a reminder that even the biggest celebrities are humans and aren’t above feeling emotionally confused as Wizkid admits his trust issues, “Sey You Go Dey For Me If I No Pay”, before confessing what seems to be his true feelings, “Make I Be Your Bobo/ Make I Die For Your Matter Oh” regardless.
