Liberian Afrobeats artiste, JZYNO has said it was a good decision to have featured popular singer and VGMA hiplife song winner, Lasmid despite the misconception that the latter created the sound.
JZYNO’s hit single, ‘Butta My Bread’ has become a viral sensation with an accompanying dance trending all over social media but the Ghana-based Liberian singer shared that he was full of excitement and gratitude for the viral success of his song, particularly highlighting the chorus sung by Lasmid.
The video of ‘Butta My Bread’ which was released a month currently has 1 million views, a testament to the song’s impact on fans, especially in Ghana.
When asked about his concerns regarding people mistaking the song as Lasmid’s due to the catchy chorus, Jzyno confidently responded, “Well, I haven’t thought about it. The truth is that it’s my song, and I know many artists who have released songs where they didn’t even sing on them. Yet, because they featured someone, people end up associating the song with them. In the end, it becomes their song.”
According to the talented artiste, he writes all his songs and created the specific chorus Lasmid eventually sang and made popular.
However, he aimed at pushing the song into new frontiers hence the collaboration with the ‘Friday Night’ singer.
“I write my own chorus and stuff but here it’s a collaboration and I’m trying to promote my project here. Back in my country, I’m Jzyno, the ruler, but in Ghana, not many people knew me until this song blew up,” explained JZYNO on TV3 New Day “Lasmid, on the other hand, already had a following. So, I needed to let the people hear the best part, and in Afrobeats, the chorus is always crucial.”
Jzyno, originally from Liberia, said even though it was challenging, the collaboration with Lasmid not only propelled his song to new heights but also introduced him to a wider Ghanaian audience.
“Allowing Lasmid to handle the chorus was challenging, but it turned out to be the best decision I made and if you go search for the song online it’s my name that will pop up
