Bursting with colorful synths and lively drums, on “Whine,” Akuchi urges one’s love interest to surrender to the spirit of dance. The song follows “Solo,” the Akuchi’s debut for the year. “Whine” embodies the carefree nature of a party, with lyrics like “we piss each other off and we eat each other out” highlighting its message of enjoying romantic fun even when affairs become somewhat complicated.
007’s production evokes the bright, alluring atmosphere of Caribbean sounds, while the accompanying saxophone adds a sweet layer to the song’s overall effect. “Whyne” captures the growth in Akuchi’s music, which is inspired by his journey over the years. Akuchi asserts that “[his] strategy is to give the people a story no one can make up and no one can re-make.”
Born in Warri to parents originally from Imo state, Nigeria, Akuchi Amadi caught the interest of Nigerian pop icon Olamide in 2018, with the YBNL honcho featuring him on “Underground,” off The Glory album. Soon after, roles reversed as Akuchi got Olamide on “ringi ringi,” a record that was met with considerable reception. His love for music has inspired him to learn aspects of production, sound engineering.
