In the hopes of opening for Jidenna one day, Lagos-based rapper, BarelyAnyHook announced on his Twitter that he will be releasing weekly covers and free verses to any Jidenna song of his choice. His first offering “Worth the Wait”, is an upbeat track, packed with bruising raps, which samples Jidenna’s Seun Kuti-assisted single, “Worth the Weight”.
He delivers a self-assured set, rapping about his undeniable star quality that others termed as ‘extra’. ‘I want this on the record, all of my progress, all of my time and effort’ raps BarelyAnyHook, who comes to the realisation about his worth and his ability to make hits from time, despite being undermined by everyone around him. Although the pan-African message of the original song has been stripped from the remix, BarelyAnyHook also adds his own spin on the Jidenna number by singing as he opens and closes the track.
Stream “Worth the Wait” below.
