Popular Nigerian singer, John Ighodaro, professionally known as Johnny Drille, has revealed the inspiration for his popular song “How Are You My Friend.”

Speaking in a recent interview with Hip TV, he stated that the death of Don Jazzy’s mother inspired the hit song.

According to him, the song was Don Jazzy’s concept and they composed it together.

He said;

“I guess the song was his own way of talking about it because a lot of people were reaching out to him who he hadn’t heard from in years.

So, it just kind of hit him that, ‘Omo, I actually have these many pals that I have not communicated with for so long.’

I believe we are also living in perilous times. The economy is insane. Many folks are struggling. Many people are going through problems in their lives that they may not always feel comfortable disclosing. And I suppose that’s why people were able to connect with the song.”
