The popular saying goes, keep your friends close and your enemies closer. 2Baba and Waje are clearly not subscribing to that philosophy, considering how much their new collaborative effort, “Frenemies”, listens like a prayer session straight out of a particular fire invoking church. Over Richy Beats’ Reggae production, anchored by a spry guitar riff and church organs, both artists eschew fake, backstabbing friends, wishing them away with their vitriolic lyrics.
While the sporadic, lyric-appropriate events and use of Nollywood-esque filters are apt, the complementary music video for “Frenemies” is mostly trained on 2Baba and Waje as they perform their lyrics, as though to highlight the gravity of the song’s intentions.
