When a song is said to be as good as new, it is referred to as being ‘Evergreen’. This is not because of the message it carries which syncs with the sweet melodious tune, but warms the hearts of its listeners no matter the season.
“Afo K’edi” (You are the One) by Mista Xto, one of Akwa Ibom’s most influential and distinct entertainer and performer falls in that category. He describes his lover “as the only one that gives his sleepless night and his feelings for her as the only thing that brings him happiness”.
This highlife tune dates back to 2003 and it made the final cut of his “Wetin” album. Due to popular demand, we release it online for the first time for lovers of good Ibibio/Efik music.
