Among the 8 songs on the EP, the 3 tracks with the various features have different dynamics. Though the singles can’t be written off, let’s take our time and look at the gravity of the various artists on the EP.

Track 6- ADOM: Adom simply means grace.

Track 7-“FOR YOU” was a perfect call for Jah Phinga and will say it was God’s plan. Jonathan Woelin Segbefia popularly known as Jah Phinga was the chosen one on this. He is a Reggae/Dancehall artiste. He has recorded over 55 singles and has worked with Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, and others.
