US-based Nigerian singer, Mannywellz has teamed up with Nigerian singer, Adekunle gold for the remix of “Yeoo” off his recent EP, Soulfro. Just as the title implies, Soulfro is a compilation of synths, guitars and keyboard instrumentals that play out in different variations over 7-tracks, where Mannywellz expresses an array of emotions ranging from the desire for love to a desire for an honest living in a mix of English and Yoruba.
On the original “Yeoo”, Mannywellz sings of a desire for the freedom that peace and love affords a man. He ponders on the lengths people go to for money, reaching an understanding that happiness is beyond material possessions. The additional vocals from Adekunle Gold on the remix of “Yeoo” echo Mannywellz’ original sentiment, he sings “Where Do We Find Love”, after Mannywellz, conveying in his lyrics that those things we believe will buy happiness, ultimately do not. The remix is set on fast-tempo drums and electric guitars, switching the track up from a head shake music to a dancefloor bop.
