Sensational Johnny Drille, a Nigerian singer, has explained the idea behind his hit song ‘How Are You My Friend’.
According to him, the death of Don Jazzy’s mum inspired the hit song. He revealed this in a recent Hip TV interview.
Johnny Drille revealed that he co-wrote ‘How Are You My Friend’ with Don Jazzy and that the song was the Mavin boss’ idea.
“The inspiration behind ‘How Are You My Friend’ was Don Jazzy having just lost his mother like a couple of weeks prior,” he explained to Hip TV.
“I guess the song was his own way of talking about it because a lot of people were reaching out to him who he hadn’t heard from in years.”
So, it just kind of hit him that, ‘Omo, I actually have these many pals that I have not communicated with for so long.’
He said “I believe we are also living in perilous times. The economy is insane. Many folks are struggling. Many people are going through problems in their lives that they may not always feel comfortable disclosing. And I suppose that’s why people were able to connect with the song.”
