‘FAKE NIKES’ is the sixth track housed under Blaqbonez’s debut album ‘Young Preacher’ and it features Nigerian rapper/Singer, Cheque along with talented South African rapper Blxckie.
Blaqbonez had already evolved a formulaic strategy to entice listeners to a fun side of himself by the time 2021’s Sex Over Love appeared, so helping to lengthen the shelf life of his releases. His funny persona conveyed a contentious idea of reeling in pleasure rather than being tied to a love connection using this strategy, which developed into Sex Over Love. The message, which was equally colorful and contemplative, resonated with Blaqbonez and brought him a lot of hits.
Using his love for women, difficult observations on his childhood and the luxuries fame now grants him, this theme is reiterated in Young Preacher. The 14-tracklist body of work Young Preacher featuring notable names like Amaarae, Lojay, Tekno, Tay Iwar, and others has a sophisticated, soulful sound that is characterized by several beat changes, guitar, and keyboard embellishments, and in-depth narration. It’s like a gospel of Blaqbonez.
