So, this track – Fever – has been sitting in my email for quite some time. It turns out the song didn’t make Iyanya‘s latest album“Applaudise“, which is a big surprise, considering the sort of cross-over appeal this song is blessed with.
The mere presence of Ivorian superstar Dj Arafat can turn any song into a hit (just ask J. Martins). Throw in
Cameroonian act Xcellente, then you’d see why I’m even more pained. I just had to put it out for y’all Anglophone
and Francophone listeners to vibe to side-by-side.
