FUB, brings on the rhythm that take control of your body before you know it. This track is featuring Nzaki and Leila Kama. They're gathered on this song to infuse the FUB spirit, and condensed all the elements that define their identity.
Leila Kama in her spoken word's verse has a good conclusion “You tell us who you are with your music”.
Sur Yoka, (ft Selektaa) is "Listen" in Lingala (a congolese dialect), PLDG invite you to open yourears so the message can flow to your spirit and soul.
