When Nandy was asked about featuring the Republic of Congo’s musical legend, Koffi Olomide she explained that its a dream come true to work with the legend, because she’s been following and listening to his music since she was a kid;
“Leo Leo” with Koffi Olomide – he’s a legend. I respect him. I used to listen to Koffi Olomide since I was just a kid. And that was my dream because I was just seeing my dad dancing his songs. And then now I just see Koffi Olomide, like, “Can I do something with him? It would be a dream to me and my family.” And then we made it.
The day that we just created the song, we wanted a different sound. People just like amapiano nowadays, and we didn’t want to forget that I’m a bongo flava artist, so we just decided to mix bongo flava and a little bit amapiano in the beat so that we can get something good, and anyone can listen.
