Last month, in a late-night cryptic tweet to fans and followers, Dj Tunez hinted at a new single featuring Omah Lay and Wizkid, inadvertently sending Starboy FC into a frenzy as streets were hot and ready for a Wizkid collab with one of the year’s indisputable breakout stars. By the following morning, Adekunle Gold seemed to have joined the mix and it became clear that a mega-hit was on the way. Today, “Pami” is here and we can confirm, it does exactly what the title suggests and so much more.

Starting off with soft keys, acoustic strings, and a slow melodic tempo, “Pami” gradually picks up as we hear Omah Lay’s hypnotic vocals come into focus on the song’s hook. Serving as a smooth introduction into Wizkid’s verse, Omah Lay sings ‘Pami o/Only Wizzy be your daddy o, because me I no get time’ declaring that Starboy is better suited to guide the ladies into euphoric bliss.
His melodic vocals are primed to ride the waves of the drubbing Blaize-produced beat perfectly, as the hook seamlessly segues into Wizkid’s killer verse, that it’s almost too easy mistake him for Omah Lay before you hear that distinct Starboy drawl. ‘Shey we go make am to the morning/they no fit quench our flame’ Wizkid sings, addressing a love interest who from what we gather, is the only one that can tame our Starboy.
Wizkid admits that he’s unafraid to declare his love for this woman who has been so good to him that he’s resolved to singing about their relationship in song – we’ve seen lover boy Wiz so many times, we’re unsure if this is actually the one. In any case, the bright enthusiasm in which he sings assures us (and his lover) that whatever the case may be, Starboy dey for you. Adekunle Gold makes his entry in the song’s final verse, and makes a compelling case to be a die-hard romantic as he sings ‘One man down on the love highway/Look what you have done to me, this love e go make me commit’ admitting that he’s too smitten with his love to recant on their commitment to each other.
