Efezino Akpo, a singer, songwriter and the 2017 Airtel Reality TV Show voice star says people’s love for her first single “Amere” inspired her to release her new single “Totori”.
Efezino made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abuja.
The Afro-pop star released her hit debut single Amere on Oct. 30, 2018, which came with a combination of her native Isoko dialect and English language.
Efezino said that the response to Amere spurred her in redoubling her effort to produce the new single Totori, adding that the response to Totori had been overwhelming.
Totori, a love song was released on Jan. 28 and it has been played on all digital platforms, while the video of the song was officially released on Feb. 12.
According to Efezino, the response has been positive; people can connect with the song Totori.
“Totori is a love song; I wrote it for someone special and it’s exactly how I am feeling, it is a sweet loving song,’’ she said.
She said that her fans and non-fans love the song, adding that the acceptance had been gathering momentum and the reception amazing.
The fast rising Afro-pop star said that people across board had been listening to the song which was released globally on both social media and radio houses.
When asked to compare Amare with Totori, she said Amare had been receiving massive airplay because it had been out for a while.
She however said that Totori was just out, and enjoying the necessary support within and outside Nigeria.
She commended families and friends for rallying to produce the video of Totori.
