Eghe Nimose started producing the album as early as January 2020 in his home studio in Lugbe suburb, Abuja (Nigeria). By August, he sent an Instagram DM to Wordplay T. Jay requesting a collaboration on the track “Let You Go (Remix)”. Further communications were exchanged and a royalty sharing deal was agreed.
Bernard Ochelebe Oko (SOJ Da Legend) came into the album at a later stage during conclusion. His appearance during production changed the rhythm of the project, adding a flair of Hi-Life and R&B to the projects. This can be felt on tracks like “No Play”, “Deja Vu”, “Allergic” and “Overdose”.

After the initial release in December 7, 2020. The album was received with much interest in digital stores, with over 2 million streams in 60 days across all platforms. However, there were some production glitches in some tracks. Digital distributor TuneCore didn’t permit replacing a single track in the album, but a complete take down and re-uploading of the album.
Also, there was a mix feeling created by the different genre of the album: Congolese rumba, dub, reggae. This and the glitch issue above prompted Eghe Nimose to completely take down the album, separated the songs in genres and resulted to the subsequent release.
