“As We Struggle Everyday” is a politically-charged afrobeat tune about people having the voting power to hold their ‘leaders’ accountable, but often failing to do so. Throughout the song, Femi sings “As we struggle everyday We try to find a better way See these leaders wey suppose jail Na him my people dem dey hail.”
Femi explains: “‘As We Struggle Everyday’ is about how hard people work everyday to make ends meet and still go to vote corrupt politicians into power who are meant to be in jail.”
Legacy +, which is due out February 5 from Partisan Records, includes a full album by Femi titled Stop The Hate and an album by his son, Made, titled For(e)ward. The pair have previously shared the singles “Pà Pá Pà” and “Your Enemy” off the upcoming release.
