In the past one year, we have seen Nigerian singer, songwriter and producer Idahams grow into the Lover man that girls adore, following his last project ‘Man on Fire EP‘. Now he is back with a remix to his Valentine ballad ‘Shima’ featuring Seyi Shay and Peruzzi.
Produced by Idahams himself, “Shima Remix” maintains the message of the original song about a young lover who is skeptical about showing his true emotion to his love interest while Peruzzi was more
demanding and expressive about what he wanted from his love interest. Seyi Shay at the other end, takes on the Bonnie & Clyde vibe as she stands by her partner, while holding back so she is not taken for granted in the long run.
Speaking on the choice of collaboration Idahams says, “As a producer as well as a singer it gives me a little edge to view music a bit differently. So I thought Shima deserved a remix that will have a male
expression and a female response. So I spoke with my team and we agreed that Seyi Shay and Perruzi
will give it that touch. We then sent it to them and they loved it and see how beautiful they came through on it.”
