Timaya and Sean Paul’s collaboration follows on from other dancehall and afrobeats remixes – most recently Busy Signal and Kalado’s sampling of  ’Personally.’ Originally an afrobeats hit  P-Square both Busy Signal and Kalado have embraced the African sound and given it a dancehall twist with their deejaying talents.

The other day as I was walking home from work a talk dark and handsome older gentleman felt the need to tell me that I looked nice and was walking very elegantly.

Now usually a compliment made by a stranger has an ulterior motive – ‘I’m trying to chat you up on road kind of motive…’

But not this time, this time was different!

After uttering those few simple yet unexpected words, my stranger kept it moving and instead of feeling irritated, I was left feeling elevated!

You see a no strings attached compliment makes you feel nice – it’s that simple!
A kind gesture lift your spirits, brighten your mood and make you feel happy and that’s not just the one receiving the compliment, this applies to the person making it too.
