We are not even going to act like this is normal and we are only slightly excited about it. No!
When Nathaniel Bassey tells us to watch out for anything; its something big, something great and of course, something really

prayed and fasted looked forward to this collaboration to end all collaborations from two of our all-time faves; Tope Alabi and Nathaniel Bassey for a long time and now that it is here, we are fully ready for it.

Uncle Nathaniel Bassey, we are just looking at you with our “shebi you will soon release another album” eye.
And for the first time this month, we cannot but imagine how utterly beautiful The Experience 2018 would be.
