Stay With Me (Cover)

Stay With Me (Cover)

musicTo be honest, I never knew much about Sam Smith until I updated that piece about him here. And then, y’all educated me. I have Peak to thank for converting me to his fan though. I downloaded the songs he recommended, and have been enjoying them. I stumbled across this cover some Naija musicians, Immaculate and Oyinkanade, did of his Stay With Me track. Dunno if y’all have heard it though. In case not, here it is.

        I listened with an open mind and realized it wasn’t that bad! He is a bit Taylor Swifty, but really not bad!

    Sam Smith is good…listening to his song can only make you come to one conclusion, he has a beautiful soul. Gay or not.

    Good morrning Y’all
    Heard the cover and believe me when I say its the best cover yet! I don’t do nigerian music, so you could imagine my surprise when these two blew it out of the park when 1st heard it. I didn’t know that they were nigerians until the yoruba part. Mary j. B and luke james did covers too. But this version is the best so far.

    Anybody who says Sam Smith ain’t good needs to have a baton shoved up his ass, tied to a stake nd shot a million times! #Gbam!
    Immaculate nd Oyinkansade were both in d Project Fame academy last year. Immaculate was quite good(1st runner up actually) so I don’t expect anything less.
