Ykee Benda to compile list of “worst” Songs produced this year
As the year comes to an end, people usually make a review of how it has unfolded in terms of their specific areas of life.
Last year, musician Bebe Cool came under fire for writing a list of his favorite top artists and songs,a list that left very many disgruntled as their favorite artists were left out, while others complained that some acts that made his list were not deserving.
Looks like Ykee Benda is picking a leaf from Bebe, only this time, he will be compiling a list of the bad songs, call them not so nice songs that were produced this year.
“Am making a list of all the bad songs this year …wait for it…bad I mean not nice songs!”
Like he has asked us to be patient, we shall do just that and keep you posted on which artist makes this ‘not so good’ list.
