“HER” is Shimon’s latest single , which takes inspiration from the afrobeat hit “Yahooze” by Nigerias very own Olu Maintain. Shimon samples this hit and adds his gentle vocals over a rollicking beat creating his own unique twist
“ HER is a track that blends the excitement of money and loyalty. The use of the “Yahooze” sample is to create a nostalgic and dramatic element very different from the main focus of the track but still musically pleasing*
