The power of Collaboration in any form of business can’t be over emphasized as we have all witnessed it in one way or the other sky rocket Businesses to its peak.

The world of music is not left behind in all this as we have seen it breakout new artiste and they became stars over night before our very eyes. We first heard of tekno when that powerful collaboration with Davido titled “Holiday” came out in 2011.

Also the case of HumbleSmith last year with the same Davido jumping on the remix of his small hit “Osinachi” turned what would have been a local hit to a mega jam across the continent and beyond.

This to name a few has shown how powerful this collaboration were and the impact it had in the life of the unknown artiste.

However the case of yung6ix and his recent leverage on collaborations in his singles for some time now is what brought us to this party.

Young6ix the warri breed artiste that got the attention of everybody in 2010 with IcePrince’s oleku remix has struggled to keep the fire burning with his records being forced  down our throat with a little or no spark.

The past 2years feels like the artiste only shines on songs he has another artiste to compliment him, from blessings featuring Oritse Femi to “let me know” ft Davido, Shabba ft Cynthia morgan, “for example” ft Stone Bwoy to  the most recent “money is relevant” featuring phyno. His best can only be seen on records like this. A new single is still being expected very soon which will feature koredo Bello of Mavin records.

While we wouldn’t want to dwell on the artiste loosing what once made him a delight to everybody, we pray the collaborations safe him and his career as the biggest artiste in the record label where he is signed to being KKTBM. With three body of works under his belt and another being expected before the end of the year we can only wish to see him shine like his industry birth year if not even more.
