Hakym The Dream would pass as one of Nigeria’s very talented producers cum singer. His debut single “Dey There” is a slow jam but the catch phrase off the song is popular on the street. So do not be surprised when someone tells you “Your head dey there”…it simply means, “You are recognized” or “you are approved”.
The recent development from Hakym’s camp lately is a song and video praising and calling for the support of the incumbent Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Raji Fashola. The Jarmzone caught up with the soft-spoken artiste to know what he is up to and he said, “I’m just a regular citizen of Nigeria who adores good governance; and looking at Lagos where I live today, I believe everyone will agree that Gov. Fashola has done very well for this state. It won’t be a bad idea to re-elect him to continue with the good work he is doing already”.
The Jarmzone probed to know if this gesture was financially motivated and he said, “Not at all. I have never met the governor before, I was motivated to do the song which is an interpolation of my hit single “Dey There” based on what the governor has done in places like Oshodi, where I ply everyday; places like Surulere, Lagos Island, Badagry Expressway and so on”.
We also gathered that the multi-talented artiste who has directed a handful of videos with AK-One will unveil a caller-back tune code for the song before this week runs out. Jarmzone also spoke with Hakym’s manager, Abdul, he said, “This is an action with noble intent…if governor Fashola eventually come across the song or video, that will be nice and if he doesn’t get to see it – no problem. It does not change the fact that he is a role model for other state governors to emulate and his head dey there for life”.
