Speaking on the development, Michael Odiong, CEO, Premier Records, explained that, “As part of a renewed drive to get back to the mainstream as a top record label in Nigeria, we are releasing a brand new single titled ‘Lagos Sisi’ by Bola Johnson ft Reddemwurld, a young budding talent who is an artist and producer. The new single will be exclusively released on Vybez FM and on all Digital Streaming Platforms on January 26, 2024. The release is in conjunction with Little Lagos Records, UK. We are using this as a launch pad to many other things lined up for the year such as recreating songs from the catalog with newer sound and artists. This will surely be an exciting year for us as we are collaborating with some good hands that believe in us”.

The original Lagos Sisi track was done by the late Bola Johnson, one of the originators of Afrobeats before the late icon, Fela popularized it. Lagos Sisi was released in 1973 by Phillips West Africa Records (now Premier Records Limited).

The song talks about the strange things happening in Lagos. Young girls sell their bodies just to live a fake life. It also delves into the issue of employers of labor not being able to pay their employees but live luxurious lifestyles to the detriment of the workers and politicians breaking the rule of law and embezzling government funds with reckless abandonment.
