The artiste is known for his versatility in music genres like R&B, Afrobeat, Afro Pop, and Hip Pop tracks say this new song ‘Your Love’ “talks about two partners who fell in love and later had issues in the relationship and one has to reconcile. Basically, I write poems, which can be considered a type of music, I guess. It’s hard to tell what inspires me because it be anything and I’ve written poems with all kinds of subjects. Humanity is inspiring in itself. Whenever I write, it feels natural and just right.”
