Afro B’s new single ‘Bluffin’, featuring Kizz Daniel, is out now on Afrowave Music/PIVTL Projects. Produced by N2thea, the track has a smooth tone and chill vibe. Lyrically, the duo explore the ways in which their lives have been transformed.
Afro B refers to the way in which many artists feel as though those around them want to participate in the celebration of their success but were not present in the hustle to get there. He sings ‘Only pop up when they see my glory / Baby girl want take part in my story / I swear back then you ignored me’. Kizz Daniel joins Afro B’s sentiment in his verse singing ‘I pray for the good life for me and my brother make we glow.’
