In the pulsating world of afropop music, freshness and dynamism are the name of the game. So, when a track gains traction and love from fans, it’s only fitting that artists revamp it to give listeners an elevated experience. This is precisely the strategy embraced by the Nigerian Afropop sensation, Idahams, as he pulls the curtains off his electrifying remix of ‘Wetin No Good’.
Emerging from a successful run of the original single, which took the internet by storm with nearly five million global streams and considerable traction on TikTok, ‘Wetin No Good’ was already a banger in its own right. With nods and recognition from major platforms such as BBC 1Xtra, Clash Magazine, Metal, Earmilk, and Notion Magazine, Idahams has proven that he’s not just a fleeting sensation, but a musical force to be reckoned with.
Harnessing the infectious energy of the original track, Idahams has cleverly infused the talents of boisterous Afrobeats artist and dancer, Eltee Skhillz, and the fresh voice of Nigerian rapper, Dandizzy. The amalgamation of these musical powerhouses results in a rendition that resonates with both a familiarity from its predecessor and a new zest from the additional verses.

In the spirit of collaboration, Idahams opened up about the inspiration behind the remix, expressing gratitude for the positive reception of the original track. A collaboration with Dandizzy, a gifted rapper from Port Harcourt, and the energetic Eltee Skhillz was a natural progression. “Both artists first came to mind when I was thinking about a remix for this song, and I hope the fans love this remix as much as we enjoyed creating it,” says Idahams.

With a discography boasting over 50 million streams, top chart placements, and a unique sound influenced by his hometown’s indigenous rhythms and highlife music, his trajectory in the global Afropop arena seems unstoppable.
