“Don’t you say goodbye my friend / If I no text you or call / No be say I don forget / No be say you don offend“, very fast-rising music star, Bella Shmurda emotionally opens with on his new single—My Friend—produced by one of the hottest beat makers in Nigeria currently, Niphkeys.
The opening lines show Bella Shmurda considerate side, pleading with his friend(s) not to feel neglected because of seeming not to include him (or them) in his plans, but why does it seem so? You might ask. Well in the next few lines, he explains candidly why: “If I say goodbye my friend / I just wan to dey on check / I just want to get that cheque / . . . / And if you look into my eyes and you go see another light / Deep down for my mind I swear I get you for my mind”, stating work and the money grind as the primary purpose.
Bella Shmurda uses his very distinct vocals and well explanatory and vibe-worthy lyrics to depict his newly found famous, busy and always on-the-move lifestyle; Jamica, England, Coloumbia, Nairobi, Ghana are just some few countries he name drops as he paints the pictures of places he has been oppourtuned to visit either for vacation or performance.
No doubt, Bella Shmurda has another banger in his repertoire with My Friend. Listen:
