KOSI looks likely to be Mercy Chinwo’s Next biggest hit and the reasons for this would be explained below:
With recently-premiered single & video “Obinasom,” still buzzing the airwaves, the Powerhouse songstress teased her fans with a snippet of yet another powerful song off her upcoming sophomore album, which was originally scheduled to be due in April (now in July). The song features a superbly simplistic chorus and it’s a very easy singalong.
“Kosi o Kosi o, Awimayehun
Koseni bire, Awimayehun” She Sings
“KOSI is one song I can’t wait to share with you all.” wrote Mercy Chinwo while expressing her delight about the song.
