High Grade Family front-man Samini is the latest Dancehall act to cover Stonebwoy’s popular People Dey, following Epixode’s decent effort with Ogbooni.
The song, titled Champions League, is hardly mistakable, to whom Samini’s digs are directed, as early enough in the song, he chants “no boy kyaan [can] trick me with fake adidas”. Other such lines pepper the song, along with him boasting of his ability to bounce back from rough times, and still being the poeple’s choice
Shatta Wale made headlines when he released the video to his Bie Gya as he was widely alleged to be donning fake adidas hoodies. This makes it difficult to believe that Samini’s words are aimed at anyone other than Shatta Wale.
The longstanding feud between dancehall colleagues Samini and Shatta Wale appeared to have been resolved months ago in the spirit of peaceful elections, but a recent combination of dis songs and social media rants have proven otherwise.
The song was recorded by his go-to programmer nowadays Brainy Beatz.
