Like all great rappers do, M.anifest walks the line between hero and villain, and the divide is defined by a listener’s willingness to buy his inspiring story. On “Fine Fine”, he employs Olamide’s street fueled vocals to drive home his cock sure rap bars over the bouncy hip-hop beat Kuvie produces. On one end, his boastful bars, asking who cares about rapping may be a tough pill for any hip-hop fan to swallow, but it gets across M.anifest’s ethos for pushing the bar beyond the conventional expectations.
He admits that “Boys Dey Grow/ Doing Biz Be The Action” and tells a tale of how he had to make his girlfriend his ex, allowing it to serve as an analogy for another tale. While M.anifest’s storytelling is outstanding, it’s Olamide’s catchy hook, rendered in a mix of Pidgin English and Yoruba that’s sure to get heads bumping as he lifts the mood of the track, emphasizing the flex of the collaboration between two of the biggest acts on the continent, “From UK Down To Naija and Ghana/ Omo No Clause But Na We Be Santana”.
