Guchi’s foot has remained hard on the pedal since she got the internet hooked on her breakout hit Jennifer. Over 35million digital streams later, the delightful viral pop princess has shown solid staying power with the acceptance of subsequent releases like the remix of Jennifer with Tanzania’s Rayvanny and the resurfacing of her 2019 song Addicted. While many artists may suffer from hit song transitions, Guchi’s newest single Benzema is designed to wean her global fans off their former TikTok addiction by slipping them another sonic drug.
In figurative reference to French Footballer Karim Benzema, the single is a well-delivered rendition of a love-smitten woman ready to go above and beyond for a reciprocating lover. Guchi, in all her divine feminine glory, sensually threads words and melodies that could unarm the most guarded of hearts. She sings “In my head, you dey play, you dey score, you be Benzema”, essentially applauding her partner’s capability of nailing their relationship goals.
Having strategically cracked and taken centre-stage in the highly protected East African markets, Guchi’s music is now more intentional to accommodate various regional needs.
Produced by Chech, Benzema is marinated in many African flavours that give it a continental appeal while possessing a soccer title theme that could have the song far-flung to the ends of the earth.
