“I pick up the phone when the money is calling, Hello!” another anthem set by Laylizzy.
First it was the video clip of AKA enjoying Laylizzy’s video of “Tha Crew,” followed by the announcement of the collaboration between the Portuguese speaking artist that is paving the way for English/ Portuguese hip-hop in the continent and the supermega, AKA. This got the excitement of hip-hop fans and supporters all around the continent buzzing, then it was the dropping of the official artwork by AKA. The highly anticipated “heater” (as referred to by many, AKA being one of them), “HELLO” is finally out.
“Hello” was inspired by Laylizzy’s hunger for success to make his nation proud and that one wish from his Mozambican fans, which was to see their idol, Laylizzy collab with their favourite SA rapper, AKA. The Geobek Records fast rising hip-hop artist, Laylizzy linked up with Africa’s multi award winning hip-hop artist, AKA to present you something fresh from the kitchen cooked by multi award winning producer and music chef, Ellputo.
Join the buzz online with the hash tag #HelloLaylizzy, let’s get it trending!
