Vanguard writes 2Face and the renowned Dr. Victor Abimbola Olaiya have joined forces to remix an old classic from the ’60’s.
The pair put their spin on a song from Olaiya’s early collection “Mofe Muyan,” now renamed “Baby Mi Da.”
Director Kunle Afolayan of “The Figurine” fame, made this his music video debut, according to Vanguard, with producer Spills sharing his formidable talent.
Vanguard writes, Premier Records ltd, the label under which Dr. Olaiya is signed, sees the collaboration as a way of uniting musicians from different generations; it is also provides a cultural background and timelessness.
“It is pertinent that we bring back to the music industry what made Dr. Victor Olaiya internationally known,” said Michael Odiong, Project Manager of the Premier Records.
“His lyrics are still very relevant today, and he has so many tracks like ‘Ilu Le O’ and ‘Mr Judge’ that have an impact on people everywhere, and his classic love songs like ‘Omo pupa’ ‘Fami Mora O’ will withstand the test of time any day. We want to encourage younger stars to take advantage of these classic songs and do something new with them.”, he added via Vanguard.
