With a fast-paced beat to suit Lil Kesh and Joeboy’s hook, Vanilla Bottega creates an instant feel-good mood.
Joeboy won Best Artiste in African Pop at the 2019 All Africa Music Awards and Best Pop at the 2020 Soundcity MVP Awards Festival. He was nominated for multiple City People Entertainment Awards and The Headies.
The versatility and musical style of Lil Kesh is similar to that of Olamide, who raps and sings in his local dialect. However, he was criticized for using too much profanity and for failing to find the right balance in his songs’ lyrics.
The song is about the big-boy lifestyle, with the key themes of celebrity, cruise, and flex.
Both Lil Kesh and Joeboy bring their lyrical prowess and sonorous vocals to the table, putting Lil Kesh at the peak of his game.
When I step in my new skool vanilla Bottega boots
Make nobody come step on my shoes
Make nobody come kill my groove, I’m fresher than you
I’m keeping my cool ’cause my pocket is full
Jejeli jejeli I be catching my cruise
Anything I buy I’m buying for two
For me and boo, don’t step on my shoes
