Olamide and Phyno release a post world-cup Super Eagles tribute,”Road to Russia”

If a throwback technique sells out the national jerseys, imagine what it can be for music

Olamide and Phyno collaborations always subtly use their unlikely bromance to show off Nigeria’s unity. It’s not surprising that they would come together (for the umpteenth time) to make music about soccer, one of the few cultural practices that can challenge music’s place for unifying the country.

“Road To Russia” is a throwback to nostalgia that falls in line with the sold-out national jerseys. But Phyno and Olamide echoes the same hopes for Nigeria’s chances at the coming World Cup competition in Russia with deliberately antiqued harmonies produces by Pheelz.
