‘YCee vs Zaheer’, the latest album of singer and rapper, Oludemilade Alejo aka YCee, has been streamed over two million times.
The long-awaited debut album entitled ‘Ycee vs Zaheer’ was released on Nov. 8 and has steadily become a fan favourite in the last couple of days.
The project comes as a follow up to his 8-track body of work ‘First Wave’ (2017) and ‘Late Night Vibrations’ in 2018.
The two-dimensional album featured collaborations with Davido, Phyno, and Niniola.
Among the songs contained in the 15-track project are `Its Amazing’, ‘Wahala Dey’, ‘Bossing’, ‘Chocolata’, ‘Cheque’ and ‘Dakun’.
Others are ‘Vibing’, ‘Mo Salah’, ‘So Nice’, ‘Mine’, ‘Love Like That’, ‘Bassline’, ‘Dada’, ‘Vacancy’.
The album also had Ycee engage a squad of fiery producers including Adey, JayBidz, Ballertosh, Fanatix and BeatsbyKarma.
He also worked with Syn X, Krizbeatz, Jay Popping, Buzzin Producer, AP Da Don, TwoSeven, Elmore, and KO.
Speaking on the idea behind the album’s title, the Headies-nominated singer had said that his choice of ‘Ycee vs Zaheer’ was a deliberate attempt to display his singing (Ycee) and rapping (Zaheer) side.
YCee rose to limelight after his single ‘Condo’, which features vocals from Patoranking, earned him two nominations at the 2015 Nigeria Entertainment Awards.
He was also nominated for Best Artist in African Pop at the 2015 All Africa Music Awards.
In October 2016, Ycee signed a record deal with Sony Music, but terminated his contract with the label in February 2018.
