“You want to bam bam, you want to chill with the big boys…” this is the lyrics almost every Nigerian youth is currently vibing to on social media.

The ladies can’t get enough of it and neither can the DJs too.

‘Ameno’ Amapiano remix is no doubt, the tune of the season and the official ‘Detty December’ anthem in Nigeria, with little or no attention being paid to the artiste behind the song.

The use of the song in YouTube, Tik Tok snd Instagram videos led to its polarisation.

Who is Goya Menor?
The multi-talented singer, rapper, hype man, and mc’s, first and biggest collaboration was with the Nigerian music star, Erigga, on his 2016 track ‘Make I Yarn’ .

Goya Menor’s last single was released in 2020 and it was a huge flop. The singer said he almost gave up just decided to give it another try by releasing ‘Ameno’ remix. It picked up slowly and just when he was about to throw in the towel, something spectacular happened.

He said, ‘‘I didn’t produce it as a major project. I produced it as a joke. It was just God because the song picked up in the first week of December after it went viral in Uganda. If I were to promote this song with my own resources this song wouldn’t be a hit. It is a supernatural hit”.

But underneath the viral tune is a strong message.

Goya Menor, who is a sociology graduate, told PREMIUM TIMES on Thursday that the song was recorded to educate the youth about the dangers of social vices like cultism and prostitution.


He described the track as an anti-cultism track.
