Nigerian Afrobeats singer, songwriter and producer Mystro is back with new music after the release of his critically acclaimed album ‘Sugar’ featuring the likes of Maleek Berry, Eugy, Ycee, Nonso Amadi and Simi, however this time he has enlisted the talents of the most popular artist on the Afrobeats scene in multi-award winning star Wizkid, for his new single titled ‘Immediately’, as premiered exclusively via Complex.
This new single ‘Immediately’, is a fusion of authentic Afrobeat and pop with a catchy hook after which the beat drops in a fantastic fashion. This song shows the variations in Mystro’s talents as a singer and producer and how he can hold his own when going against the most celebrated Afrobeats musician of his generation. Wizkid simply does what Wizkid does best on this record sprinkling what he calls “Starboy dust” on a song that showcases him just as much as the new young talent he is collaborating with.
Wizkid, still riding high on this year’s biggest Afrobeats playlists with current hits such as ‘Manya’, ‘Soco’ and ‘Ma Lo’ alongside Tiwa Savage, took time out in Lagos recently to link up with rising star Mystro for this new record, before headline concert at the world famous O2 Arena in London on May 26. The results of which sees the duo coming together to provide what is potentially this summer’s soundtrack on every dance floor in Africa and beyond.
Speaking about how the collaboration with Wizkid came about, Mystro says, “Working with Wizkid is every African artist’s dream and to have gotten the call out of the blues after my manager Bankuli had sent Wizkid’s producer Mutay of Legendury Beatz the instrumental, is a dream I will never wake up from. Joining him in the studio and working for hours on a record together made me see a genius up close and personal and ‘Immediately’ is a result of that magical studio session“.
