Throwback Thursday: We Cannot Remember To Forget “Pere” by Mo’ Hits

Released: 2007

Album: Curriculum Vitae

Producer: Don Jazzy

Label: Mo’ hits Record

Genre: Afropop

The defunct Mo’ Hits crew were known for back to back hits during their era. Mo’ Hits All Stars released their compilation album which housed a lot of hits that are still club bangers till date. “Pere” is no doubt one of these classic hits.

The song “Pere” released in 2007 was one of the hit single of Mo’ Hits 2007 album titled “Curriculum Vitae” and the track featured Don Jazzy , D’Banj and Wande Coal.

The Afropop song was produced by Don jazzy who did an excellent job as expected. The song tells how Don jazzy, Dbanj, Wande coal, Dr Sid, D’prince and Kay switch trys to win the heart of a girl by wooing her with things they could offer to her. It was arranged in a plot structure with a video directed by DJ Tee films.

The video was considered the best music video shot in Nigeria as at that time. It started off with the singers having a form of bet at the beginning, ranting about who had the finest girl. The plot took a twist when both D’banj and Wande’s girl, fell for Don jazzy. Obviously because he was the “Don”.

“Pere” was a great success, as it got the group a couple of awards and gave us a Feeling we can never forget.

With this and many other old great tunes, it’s certain that it’s not today we started to hear good songs, “E don tey”

Cheers To Good Music!
