Renowned Nigerian singer, Tony Tetuila, recently made headlines with his revelation of a potential collaboration with Grammy-winning artist, Burna Boy, on a remix of his 2001 hit single, “My Car”.

Tetuila’s track, celebrated for its witty portrayal of Nigeria’s socio-economic landscape, catapulted him to fame after his departure from The Remedies, the influential music group he co-founded alongside Eedris Abdulkareem and Eddy Montana (Eddy Remedy).

In an exclusive interview with Daddy Freeze on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, Tetuila delved into various topics, including Eedris Abdulkareem’s recent appearance on the Honest Bunch Podcast. However, the spotlight of the conversation shifted towards Tetuila’s ambitious plan to revitalize his classic hit.

Expressing admiration for the current crop of Nigerian artists who are reshaping the country’s music scene, Tetuila took a discerning stance on Abdulkareem’s recent remarks about Burna Boy. He emphasized that while veterans like Abdulkareem may have played a pivotal role in Nigerian music history, they cannot lay sole claim to paving the way for future generations.

Tetuila’s desire to collaborate with Burna Boy underscores the shifting dynamics within the Nigerian music industry, with established artists acknowledging and embracing the talents of the newer generation. If realized, the remix of “My Car” holds the promise of bridging two eras of Nigerian music, seamlessly blending Tetuila’s timeless track with Burna Boy’s contemporary flair.

As anticipation mounts for this potential collaboration, fans are eagerly awaiting further developments, eager to witness the fusion of two distinct musical styles in what is sure to be a memorable remix.
