Both artists first came to mind when I was thinking about a remix for thins song, and I hope the fans love this remix as much as we enjoyed creating it, but also, as much as the original.”
This remix takes the essence of the hit Afro-pop song and amplifies it by adding summer vibes and a more addictive flow.

The opening scenes take place around a pool, with women posing and lounging around it, while we watch Eltee Skhillz try to impress this blonde woman with his vocals. Then Idahams comes along, spots her on the steps, then impresses her with a choreographed dance which he totally nails with four backing dancers, and he soon takes her to a hotel room where he gifts her with a present in a gift bag. Towards the end of the visual, she’s alone in the hotel room and as she’s about to leave, DanDizzy walks in with a troupe of four other women and he suggests that she stays. She turns back towards the bed and halfway through his rap, Idahams and Eltee Skhillz appear in the doorway, shocked to see DanDizzy there surrounded by women – one of which being the blonde woman who they both flirted with.
