3. Cobhams Asuquo ft. Simi – We Plenti
Musician, producer, and songwriter Cobhams Asuquo teams up with Studio Brat pioneer Simi on his latest single titled We Plenti to mark his birthday.
According to Cobhams, We Plenti comes with a powerful narrative. He explains, “This song is to encourage every Nigerian to let you know that you are not the worst person in the world. And everything happens in its own time. The fact that it might not have happened in the time you want it doesn’t mean it won’t happen at all.
A lot of people are frustrated about their situation in life not realizing that it might be a matter of time. A lot of people need to find reasons to keep going. And just knowing that they are not the only one going through stuff is enough encouragement to keep at it. It is a song of hope, encouragement and the need to hold out faith. It’s also a direct encouragement to keep working.”
