Simi and Mr P are probably the most unlikely musical pair you can think of, but somehow this collaboration works.
It is already one year since Peter and Paul Okoye launched their solo music careers under the names, Mr P and Rudeboy. Although going solo seemed like a bad decision at the time, their latest projects prove that they may do great as individual artists. Now that Simi and Mr P have teamed up on his best solo single yet, perhaps we should expect even better music from him.
On the Daihardbeats-produced song, Mr P and Simi sing about a love that sends them over the edge – what’s love in Nigeria without a little bit of crazy? Nevertheless, the two singers share a surprising harmony and vocally match each other, something we didn’t expect from this unlikely pair.
Despite the vocal chemistry, the video for “Zombie” is not as interesting as the audio. Like every other Nigerian love song, there’s a scene with one of the singers on the beach. At any rate, Simi is our favourite part of the Unlimited LA-directed video as she steals the show with her popping skin and cute braids.
