Artistes: Akothee feat Diamond

Song: My Sweet Love

 

Rating: 5/10

There’s a reason many chart-topping music singles are collaborations rather than solo efforts. You see, the synergy produced between two artistes (even when they are mismatched like Akothee and

Undoubtedly, the Godfather-produced My Sweet Love video does, indeed, glitter with a TV-commercial-quality visual appeal throughout.
