Nigerians unanimously agreed that BNXN (aka Buju) and Lojay’s remix of Iyanya’s popular tune ‘Kukere‘ in the second season of Budweiser Smooth Kings Remix was a disappointment.

The opening episode of the second season featured BNXN and Lojay remixing Iyanya’s ‘Kukere,’ but the result was nothing like the original.

The live performance, as enjoyable as it was, lacked any resemblance to the original feel-good tune.

The tempo was slowed down, and the usage of the phrase ‘Kukere‘ is the only thing that connects the remix to the original.

Speaking on the performance, Iyanya said;

“Big shout out to Lojay and Buju BNXN, I’m a big fan of these two guys.

“And I’ll be honest, they made this song theirs and I love it.”

Twitter users, however, disagree with the “Kukere” crooner as it was implied that Buju and Lojay did not understand the assignment.

While the netizen believed that without a doubt, the performance was excellent, However, it defies the show’s aim of recreating classics by legends who paved the path for today’s artists.

In 2013, Iyanya, an Efik Nigerian singer who won the first edition of Project Fame West Africa, released ‘Kukere‘ which means ‘Don’t think or worry‘.

To make it better, the single was followed by a dance move.

Budweiser has commenced the second season of the show where 20 talented artists grace the show and recreate 10 of the biggest from back in the day.

Media presenter Dadaboy Ehiz and ex-Big Brother Naija housemate Adeyele ‘Vee’ Victoria are the hosts of the show
