Friday Igwe, the Nigerian ghetto singer better known as Baba Fryo, says he will be putting out a new single before the end of the year.
Baba Fryo has been off the music industry for 20 years. The ace singer ended his music hiatus with the release of ‘Dey your Dey’ in 2021.
But in a chat with NAN on Tuesday, the veteran singer revealed the title of his new project as ‘Show Love’.
“I have been away from the music scene for 20 years now but I came back in 2021 with the release of a single, “Dey Your Dey”, I am trying to follow up with another single now “Show Love,” he said.
Baba Fryo said he got the inspiration for ‘Show Love’ from the increased killings and insecurities happening in the country, as well as the need for Nigerians to understand the power of love.
“I will be releasing my new single before the end of the year, I want to make Nigerians realise that we need to cultivate the habit of showing love to one another even with the cases of increased killings in the country,” he said.
“The situation in the country is terrible, we need to preach love more often, if the bandits and terrorists can show love, there would be no problem in the society.”
The singer described his kind of music to be a fusion of Afrobeats and Reggae music, Afro-reggae-beats.
He also said he was inspired by the late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti and Bob Marley who were known as freedom fighters.
The ‘Galala’ crooner has remained relevant in the music industry since 1990s.
